Yeah...I'm with you on doubting that number. But remember the way the number is stated in the video...'up to 81% of women say they masturbate' or something like that. Which means that somewhere there is a study done which the results showed that 81% of participants who responded to the question 'Have you ever tried to masturbate?' answered yes. Now if that survey was taken of the women who actively participate here in Sex Forums, that number might be higher. But the same question, asked of female senior citizens entering church on a Sunday morning would probably receive much lower affirmative responses. Statistics can very easily be manipulated to prove just about anything you want.
But that's not important to the central objective of the video anyway. The message is that there is nothing wrong with masturbation, and it is, in fact good for you in many ways. The statistic that was quoted which was a bit of a surprise to me, and perhaps much more significantly distressing, was that more than 50% of women admit they feel guilty when they masturbate. I don't know what percentage of men feel guilty if they masturbate, but I'm assuming it's lower than 50%...but even that is still too high. This doesn't speak well of your society's continuing repressed attitude towards sex and sexuality.

1. Is regular masturbation (even when in a relationship) a healthy thing? What would the % of married/committed people who do it?
I often hear of married men watching porn when they have thier beautiful gf's/wives right there.
Also, if I up and one day magically had the healthy heart and pain-free joints and limbs to start masturbating daily and did so, wouldn't my lady friend take this as an insult?

I do it, since my girlfriend needs sex only once every few months and I need it almost every day, but would be happy with a couple of times a week...
So, should I torture myself and not release the tension when getting aroused (which is frequent) or should I bugger her instead to do it more often or should I cheat on her? Which is a better option? For now - masturbation.

Interesting, I've done that, too, a couple of times, but usually I have to reach some sort of relief after prolonged "edging" - it is also supposedly not good for men if they don't ejaculate after they were very aroused and erect for a while - it is not good for the prostate - there are some theories that regular masturbation helps with reducing risk of prostate cancer: http: (erase space) //news.

And Jazzy - your SO wouldn't be insulted, unless you chose to "go solo" instead of having sex with her...
OFF TOPIC: how do you guys post links??? I am pissed off at always having to type "erase space" to be able to post them...

Can one concede that a woman who has admitted to have a high sex drive but is not having sex at the moment masturbates? I just want to get a "feel" for her sexiual habits. We've talked about sex openly, but I'm too afraid to ask her if she masturbates. What's great (IMHO) is that my other lady friends (the ones I don't pursue romantically) readily admit to me that they masturbate using toys and all kinds of methods (keep in mind most of my friends are female, especially all my cliose ones, so they feel comfortable talking about it, I just didn't thinlk 81% did it)

You can be sure it is the other way around - the normal and more common thing is that they do masturbate than not - if she has a high sex drive and is comfortable with talking about sex it is very likely that she masturbates.
If you two are getting intimate, why not try some heavy petting if you can't have sex yet. Kissing leading to caressing, kissing her body, breasts, massaging her sex, playing with her hands, kissing her fingers, sucking them - you would be surprised what effect can that have - if you do a sensual "blowjob" on her finger... leading HER hand towards her pussy during that erotic play, caressing her pussy with your hands combined, you let go of her hand for a moment and you see if she instinctively continues to masturbate alone - then you know. And then you also don't care about the answer anymore.
Or you can't get that intimate, yet? Then no, just leave it, what does it matter if she masturbates? It is good for her, even nicer if she thinks of you on occasion while doing it.

there definately would be a higher % of men doing it especially when 99% of porn caters to us and also with internet its high quality and free if you got a decent knowledge of how file sharing works
i think most men and women that masturbate reguarly more likely aged between 15-30
