How are we supposed to know the proper etiquette for public masturbation?

We’ve all been in the uncomfortable position of suddenly feeling extremely aroused for no particular reason while out in public. This is certainly a confusing and stressful predicament that many of us don’t know how to deal with. Should you ignore these intense sexual urges, or make the healthy decision to excuse yourself to the privacy of a public bathroom stall to relieve yourself sexually?

Society’s view of public masturbation is very subjective, but it’s important to remember that masturbation has countless health benefits. But should these health benefits come at the cost of potential criminal charges for what some might consider to be lewd behavior? It’s not easy to determine when public masturbation is acceptable or not, as most establishments don’t visibly enforce any type of masturbation policy. Should we simply assume that we should wait until we’re in the privacy of our own homes, or is discretion the key to this unavoidable scenario?

I suppose that there’s more questions than answers when it comes to the acceptability of public masturbation. There’s certainly a lot of grey area, and we might have to rely on the government to step in and enforce some official guidelines.

In the meantime, I suggest that we keep an open mind to those of us who have a hunger for conducting sexual acts in public, as long as it’s done discreetly and no one is physically harmed.
