    shower vs. toilet
    Kylesww posted:
    (im a male) Why do i have a more satisfying ejaculation when i
    masturbate on the toilet compared to in the shower?
    Elle0317 responded:
    You are probably more relaxed sitting on the toilet than you are standing in the shower.
    Kylesww replied to Elle0317's response:
    but i sit down in the shower, could it be the hot water on my
    genitals reducing my pleasure?
    Elle0317 replied to Kylesww's response:
    Yeah I guess it could be, or it could be a mental thing too.
    georgiagail replied to Elle0317's response:
    Try both ways and get back to us with the results.

    Kylesww replied to georgiagail's response:
    i tried both ways again and it still feels better on the toilet.

    I've never liked masturbating in the shower.
    My penis just feels slippery and I always feel like I don't have a proper grip on it.

    It could be more that your penis is dry when you are sitting and you have a better grip on it while masturbating like that.

    I'm pretty sure if you masturbated while standing in the shower without water flowing you'd get the same results as on the toilet.

    It could be very messy to try though :-)
