Adapted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Masturbation is the manual stimulation of the sex organs, usually to the point of orgasm (but not necessarily). It can refer to stimulation of the male or female genitals from oneself or by another person, but it is usually something that is done alone. It is an activity that coincides with "autoeroticism", which can also include the use of sex toys and non-genital stimulation. There are also machines for sale that are sometimes used to simulate sexual intercourse. It is the most common sexual practice world-wide while intercourse is the second most common. Some people are only able to achieve orgasm by themselves rather than from sexual intercourse. In the animal kingdom, it is practiced by other primate species.
The word is believed by many to derive from a plural Greek word for penis (µe?ea-- mezea) and the Latin verb turbare, meaning to disturb. A competing etymology theory based on a Latin expression manus turbare meaning "to disturb with the hand" is regarded by most dictionaries as "an old conjecture". The little-used synonym 'manustupration' derives from a similar etymology, manus stuprare.
The term Masterbation, spelled with an "e" instead of a "u" is so often used in modern times, it can probably be considered a slang variation of the proper term rather than a misspelling. Common misspellings can also include: Masterbaiting, Master bate (with a space), and Masturbaton. Common slang terms include Jerking Off (male), Jilling Off (female), Jacking Off, Jackin, Wanking, and many more that you can find in Sexual Synonyms.
