If anyone thinks that just because we've passed the days of puberty a guy's dick won't drive him to distraction they are very sadly mistaken.
We could be sitting at work, and wham! there it is. We squirm a bit in the chair, or try to adjust for comfort and, instead of helping to reduce the blooming boner, the movement causes our clothes to rub against it and make it harder. Before we know it, the log of wood has become a bar of steel.
If it's a boner so hard it hurts - well, all bets are off. We're off to the Men's Room to lock ourselves into a stall until we've beaten it into submission. In a survey conducted by TimeOut (an online magazine out of New York) 39% of men admitted to masturbating at work. Reporter Jillian Anthony suspects the percentage is actually much higher - it's just that some respondents were too embarrassed to admit it.
In January, 2016, Drew Millard of Vice conducted another (very unscientific) survey on the topic of rubbing one out at work and put the percentage at 40%. He began his search of guys who whack at work by reporting on GuyFi, the public masturbation room in New York City. It held a laptop, a chair, and was surrounded by a curtain. Well, okay, it was a marketing stunt for a sex toy company to promote the results of their survey on workplace masturbation by men.
"I do it all the time," said Josh, a guy in his 20s who works at an office. "I've just always used it as a method to calm down and relieve stress during the middle of the workday occasionally." a respondent of Millard reported.
Which is a pretty common reason. If I had a big meeting coming up, it helped calm my nerves. If I was having trouble concentrating or stressing about a project, it eased the tension. During the day, I'd use a stall. Sometimes, if the room was empty, maybe I'd just stand
If I was working overtime - after hours or a weekend - right at my desk
24% admitted to jacking off while driving.
I have an acquaintance (now a Sex Therapist) who did her Master's Thesis on female sexuality and masturbation. In one section she addresses why men are more prone to masturbation than women. She concluded it's because not only do men get frequent erections, but they interact with their penises so many times during a normal day. Think about how many times you take a leak every day.
Then there's showering; dressing and undressing; having to adjust the package for one of those boners. We must directly touch, or interact in some way with our cocks dozens of times each day. That makes it rather a normal progression into jacking off.
