Just in time for National Masturbation Month, sex toy retailer Lovehoney released a survey of 4,500 people, so we can learn all about what people are really thinking about when they masturbate. I think it's great, because anything that opens up conversations around masturbation is a step in the right direction. Because most of us do it — I mean, it's too good not to. "There are an endless number of reasons to masturbate. Learning how to make yourself orgasm is the most empowering experience you will ever have," Vanessa Marin, sex therapist and founder of Finishing School, tells Bustle. "You'll also learn how to teach a partner how to bring you pleasure."
And while it may be no surprise that most people masturbate, even when they're in a relationship, the really interesting thing is the way people masturbate — what are they actually fantasizing about? Lovehoney looked at the answers to give us an insight into what women think about and what men think about when they pleasure themselves. So what are guys thinking about? It might surprise you, because it turns out dudes get pretty nostalgic.
