How do you masturbate?

I caught up with Twitter buddy Stanley Field and asked him a few personal questions.

Can you remember the first time you jacked-off?

I was experimenting at home in the loo — I must have been around 13.

How did you feel when you first jacked off?

When I jacked off for the first time, I hadn’t begun to make semen yet. The delight of my dry ejaculation was amazing.

Did you talk about it with anyone?

I talked with my mates, and a neighbour who was my age. My mates were already able to produce semen as their physical maturity was a little bit further along than mine. I was so envious.

Did you try any different techniques in those early years?

I have my foreskin, so lube was something I didn’t think about. I guess I must have used some different techniques, as I’d cum many times each day.

Can you remember the first time you talked to someone else about jacking off?

First time I discussed it was with my brother-in-law’s brother. He was a year younger than me, and we would sometimes beat together. I remember he had an ugly willy.

How has your jack-off style evolved over the years?

Evolution came with experience and a good helping of the internet. Who ever heard of sounds, let alone nipple-clamps and cock rings.

What’s your preferred way to jack-off currently?

I’ve slowed down with wanking. Postponing ejaculation often, so I can share intimacy with another man. I like the quality of sharing, rather than a large quantity of solo tugs. I do now enjoy some lube though.

What jack-off hints or tips would you give a young guy just starting to explore his sexuality?

Have it all. Enjoy it all. Stay tender — go gently with your willy, remember he has to last your lifetime. Use toys, clamps, sounds, condoms to see what really curls up your toes. Watch how your partners pleasure themselves, and try their techniques too. Most of all, enjoy your body and mind so that you build awareness of you. Your likes, dislikes, hot spots and ‘not’ spots.

In partnership with Berlin publication Boner Magazine, we conducted a quick survey of our readers to look at how LGBTQ people are responding to political developments around the world.

107 people responded to our survey.

We asked respondents how they would describe their political views — Left-of-centre, Moderate, Conservative, Right-wing, Other, or Don’t Know.

  • 79% of respondents described themselves as Left-of-centre or Moderate

We asked respondents to give recent examples of how they’ve engaged in political processes.

  • 85% of respondents have voted
  • 39% of respondents have participated in an online petition
  • 39% of respondents have contacted a politician
  • 28% of respondents have actively engaged with an action group

We asked respondents how happy they are with their current government.

  • The weighted average of this response indicates that LGBTQ are unsatisfied with their current government.

We asked respondents to list some of the key issues that are currently concerning them. The most common responses were:

  • Brexit
  • The Trump Administration
  • Equality
  • Health Care
  • Economic Inequality
  • Facism
  • Climate Change
  • Poor treatment of immigrants and asylum-seekers

We asked respondents if they would take part in a peaceful protest if they felt strongly about an issue.

  • 82% of respondents said that they would.

LGBTQ history of activism

UK activist Peter Tatchell has been a leading voice for LGBTQ protest throughout recent decades. I asked Tatchell for his perspective on whether we’re seeing an emerging LGBTQ political consciousness in response to instances of fascism.

“LGBTQ people are playing, and always have played, a significant role in anti-fascist movements — not least because the extremists have traditionally targeted LGBTQ people, along with Jewish, black and immigrant communities…” explains Tatchell. “The current far-right populist movements often claim to be pro-LGBTQ, but this is mostly in order to bash Muslims. In truth, many of them are anti-LGBTQ and I’ve been on the receiving end of their homophobic abuse when I’ve spoken out against their racist and anti-Muslim propaganda.”

What next?
LGBTQ people around the world are becoming increasingly mobilised to voice their concerns and advocate for the issues that are important to them. It’s time to get involved.
