Masturbation abnormality

I think I'm weird, but does anyone else not feel comfortable enough to touch themselves naked? Idk why I find it gross or something, but I'll never masturbate with my underwear off...and I only use a pillow or something and never my hands.
I would find it a bit icky and perhaps a little scary to touch my bare genitals, am I actually weird? Is it normal?

you're not weird. maybe its just something you'll get more comfortable with over time. if not, its not that big of a deal - at the end of the day only your comfort matters so you shouldn't feel weird for using a pillow or whatever.

You’re not weird for that. You are weird for masturbating. Do you not feel ashamed?
That’s so disgusting 🤢

Do you not feel ashamed and weird for finding something that is totally healthy and normal disgusting?

It's considered a perfectly normal sexual behaviour. Even animals do it.

I would be lying if I said I could relate, however you’ve just got to learn to be more comfortable with yourself. Being insecure or unsure about yourself or your body at a younger age is perfectly normal, and there isn’t a “normal” age to grow out of this. Plus, touching yourself is normal, just don’t over do it and don’t watch porn at all. It messes up your mind, especially if you’ve been watching it from a young age.

Yes. Monkeys jerk off in captivity. Are you a monkey in a cage? Majestic animals like lions mate once a year in the wild, if that. Next time you jerk off, look at a mirror. Just observe. If you feel anything other than shame, theres no hope.
You have a noble spirit.

Letting out a nut here and there isn’t that deep lol, but if you’re doing it too much and watching “weird” stuff whilst doing it, then yes it’s bad, including ALL porn.

You couldn't be more wrong - when female lions are receptive to mating, they mate every 20–30 minutes, with up to 50 copulations per 24 hours. They will also mate with multiple males, and male lions not infrequently attempt to mount other male lions. So maybe pick a better example next time.

Did you read your own link? "In captivity lions often breed every year, but in the wild they usually breed no more than once in two years."
You're obviously not familiar with it, but humans too will also have to try multiple times to successfully have a child.

I did read my link, yes. I still struggle to see what how how often lions have cubs has to do with this thread though.

From the article:
"Females are receptive to mating for three or four days within a widely variable reproductive cycle. During this time a pair generally mates every 20–30 minutes, with up to 50 copulations per 24 hours."
