I've been masturbating since I was 6 months old (my mother made a note of it in my baby book) and have finally allowed myself to be proud of it. It has been a pretty consistent 2-3 times every day for the last 50-60 years. In my teens and 20's I could have masturbated 6-8 times a day, of course, but I had very foolishly accepted the common 'wisdom-of-the-day' that it's OK if you don't do it 'too much.' Nobody had told me what 'too much' was, of course, so I just figured if I did it less than I wanted to, I'd be OK.
None of my partner sex with about 40 very sexy ladies has made any difference in my masturbation life. I masturbate a lot every day whether or not I'm in a relationship-it's the core of my sex life and as I've gotten better and better at edging (my masturbation sessions usually last 2-3 hours). I've realized that masturbation is indeed my favorite sex activity. Most of the ladies I've been with are tired or sore or simply 'finished' after 30-40 minutes and that much sex activity is just a tease for me-I needed to be alone and masturbate as soon as possible to really get myself off.
And then one day (getting older) I noticed that the only way I could stay hard during intercourse was to think about masturbating, and I started identifying myself as Solosexual instead of Heterosexual. The real truth, at last! I started thinking back and making some connections like, for example, realizing that all my life the only thing that really made my heart pound with excitement was knowing that I was about to masturbate-never got that from starting out on a date with a girl.
It has been a great liberation knowing that my sex life will always be perfect because it will never depend on anyone but me, and the only thing that could make it better would be finding a mature woman who has made the same self-discoveries and wants to spend the rest of her life masturbating a lot every day while watching me do the same.
I've made myself hard by writing this so must sign off and masturbate-again.
