To masurbate or not to masturbate. Is this even a question?

Masturbation is the sexual stimulation of one’s own genitals for sexual arousal or other sexual pleasure, usually to the point of orgasm.

However the post is not about the physical pleasuring of ones self.  In this case I am referring to the euphemistic self pleasuring ALL OF US at some time will engage in.

And we do this self pleasuring via two distinct vehicle.  Intellectual masturbation and “conscious” masturbation. Many of us have accused someone else of engaging in intellectual masturbation.
