Q: Do Chinese people masturbate?

Particularly women? 

 

Is it considered a bad thing here?  

 

Do men keep them ashamed of this so they will never know what an orgasm is?

I have asked my ex's about this (before we were ex's) and some did not even know about it until they went to college and their roommates taught them about it.  One discovered it by accident when taking a shower and was very embarrassed about it, felt disgusted with herself that she could not stop doing it once in a while, until she got to college and found out that some of her roommates did it too.

But many do not know about it.

I do not really know how to ask my chinese friends this...

HugAPanda:

Dude, they get all up in your business and aren't shy about it. I'd think one would have no problem causing them to go blush red for a change ;)

Oh, it is not about being shy. I am just really scared they misunderstand and it ends up sounding like some kind of invitation.

sadly many are taught that female sexual pleasure makes them a whore. if a woman gets any sexual pleasure she is a whore.

Sadly in my experience this is what I have found...hence my question.

Of course the guys do it. I've had friends tell me they watch Japanese porn, and if you read anything online like Chinasmack, it's definitely talked about there. As for girls, I don't know. I'd never ask my friends about it, it's too personal.

I can see that the sex sells on this forum more so then on 42nd Street back in the old days.
I've a proposition to open new category here (apart from the "Relationship" one) 
The "Sex" Category. Perfect place to ask questions about squeaking beds during sex and masturbation... 
Everybody masturbate and basically everywhere....Women and men...
For various reasons, depending on age and marital status (or how the marriage goes)
Do Chinese women masturbate? Of course Yes...how about 50%...or 74%
Quote"
The investigation also revealed that a surprising high rate --74.1 percent – of Chinese women enhance their sex lives by masturbation. Cao Zeyi, Deputy Director of the Chinese Medical Association, believes that statistics emanating from this net survey are more reliable than others, as being on-line, it dispensed with the need for face-to-face question and response, making participants more likely to answer frankly. He says, “People in China are unwilling to admit to auto-sexual gratification, but clinical statistics show that more than 50 percent of Chinese women practice it, a figure that coheres with investigation results.”

thedude:

Actually even though this was an interesting article there is no way this survey can be from a diverse cross section of Chinese society. I would say the only women who would respond to this in China would be educated...middle to upper class...and extremly knowledgable in Westure pop culture...IMO. Most women from other backgrounds would not even find this survey online much less respond to it. I would guess nationwide would be about 5% with women or less.

Masturbation for men is like... in their genes, no?

For women, it was taboo until about the 60s in the US.

I would guess there is def some TCM edict swearing that a female who touches theirself will burst into flames or have 3 headed kids or something.

GuilinRaf:

Googll Vibrator (history) and "female hysteria". Apparently it was ok for women to do this until the 1920's, including Victorian Era!!!
