The Importance Of Privacy – With many headed off to college or university and not having the usual privacies of home, masturbation can become an issue if you suddenly have roommates. Many of us, especially only children, take privacy for granted, and all of a sudden find shared living quarters and small spaces add up to you being horny and nowhere to relieve yourself. Many students in dorms have told me this is a major issue. If you have a car, worse comes to worse, you can always drive to a secluded spot and do it in the car, not the most ideal environment, but a possibility.
Set Up An Alone Time Schedule – You could tell your roommate you need time for phone calls, or any other number of excuses that are plausible to get alone time. Learn your roommate’s class schedule, so you know when you will have the room alone for that time period. If you’re very daring, just do it while they are asleep in the same room. Believe me, it happens. One guy I used to chat with would even have sex with another person while his roommate was in the room , he just didn’t care! I’d think that a bit of an extreme case, and most wouldn’t be comfortable with that much openness.
Just Be Open – Some are direct types, and honestly, most prefer that. If you are comfortable enough to have a conversation with your roommate and can discuss this, most will be glad, since they are worried about it too, not many though will feel confidant enough to bring up a “masturbation schedule” though. One man I talked to said he couldn’t do that, his roommate was a religious freak and would not approve of anyone masturbating, let alone a time schedule for it! Shower time could be used for quickies, but a 5 minute quickie isn’t always enough to satisfy us, but may be all we can squeeze in. Masturbation is beneficial for health and mental relaxation. Being pent up and horny all the time isn’t doing anyone any favors. Don’t neglect your pleasure, find a way to fit it in.
