Here's how I masturbate. I love it!
I love to masturbate to good stories on the Internet. If I know in advance that I will be able to (time, privacy), I'll go without underwear, which I find arousing. I used to do that as a kid. The feeling of my penis rubbing freely around on the inside of my pants would get me a little boner, which would last until I mounted my swing set pole or my pillow to rub myself off. I started doing that when I was about 5, and it was my favorite hobby. I didn't start using my hand until I was 12 when a friend showed me, and I found it a lot less messy!
Now I'll sit at my computer. I'll open up my pants (or remove them if I know no one will come home), and lightly fondle myself while reading. I like to run my finger up and down the little ridge where my frenulum was (I'm circumcised, unfortunately, but that is the most sensitive spot on my body). As soon as I get a little pre-cum I'll use it to lube my frenulum, and that feels really good. That's what is happening right now; writing this now has me really turned on, especially remembering using my swing set as a kid.
I try to drag it out as long as I can, bringing myself close to orgasm then backing off. When I know I can't stand it very much longer, I dribble on some lube and use a very loose grip with my entire hand around my penis, alternating between rubbing up and down and rotating my hand around it. Once I put the lube on, I know I'm a goner - it just feels too good to not go all the way. I try to time my orgasm to the one in the story I'm reading on the computer. When I get to the point of no return I encircle my penis with my thumb and forefinger, just below the corona, and when I feel the first pulse, I grip it hard and don't move, and let it rip. The feelings are indescribable. Even after all these years of masturbating, I marvel at how good it feels. I just love it, and am glad there are a lot of others out there who do, too.
