6 Weird Masturbation Rituals You Won’t Believe Are Real

Believe it or not, masturbation has been around for a long, long time. If you’re scared or weirded out by the idea of masturbating, it’s okay, but it’s good to know that people have literally been doing this for centuries. This means that masturbating is totally normal, and even though there might be a little bit of a stigma attached to it, you should totally do it if it feels good for you. That being said, there are actually a lot of ways that people do it. And some of them are a little…odd. I don’t mean to kink shame, but, hey, everyone does it a little differently! And some cultures have some pretty unique ways that they masturbate.

A lot of these aren’t really practiced anymore, which is good, since I think one of them would possibly be illegal. But, they are still interesting to learn about, since it shows that everybody masturbates. I don’t want to encourage you to do these things, but I do encourage you to explore your sexuality in different ways. If you need a little inspiration, take a look at these weird masturbation rituals that either existed in the past, or still exist now. But, please, don’t try them all.


Group Masturbating

Apparently, Ancient Middle Eastern pagans were really into group masturbating, as they thought it was good for their land and would help grow crops. Hm. I don't think masturbating can really affect your agricultural climate, but I hope they had fun! Maybe you should skip this method, though.

Masturbating During Sex

In Ancient Greece, it was thought that conceiving children could only happen when both the man and the woman had an orgams, so masturbation was almost always followed by sex. As we know now, having an orgasm doesn't increase your chances of getting pregnant, but it DOES feel good, so you should try this method if you want!

Left Hand Masturbating

Honestly, this might not be a bad tip. You never know how it can feel with your non-dominant hand. Ancient Romans believed that the left hand was supposed to symbolize self-love and self-stimulation, which is masturbaing in a nutshell. If you want to do it like the Romans, try this trick!

Bee Vibrators

Supposedly, Cleopatra had a vibrator that she would use frequently. They didn't have those trusty old battery-powered ones in 54 B.C., but they did have bees. Can you see where this is going? Apparently, Cleopatra had her own DIY vibrator which was just a container of bees that would, you know, buzz. I DO NOT recommend this! But it is pretty interesting.

Public Masturbation

Okay, don't do this, please. In Ancient Greece, public masturbation was actually a common practice. They actually believed that the Nile was semenb from God, which meant that a lot of guys would ejaculate in the river. I don't really know what to say about that.

Masturbation Crystals

So, many people think that crystals have all different types of healing powers. Some people like to have them around when masturbating, since it can make the ~energy~ better. One site recommends inserting them inside you but please, don't do that. You can have them around, but don't put any type of object inside of you, okay?
