Introduction

Masturbation is to rub, caress or touch one’s own genitals to acquire sexual pleasure and potentially, orgasm or ejaculation.

Masturbation is not being touched or caressed by someone else.

Some people qualified within the Autism spectrum and/or with learning disabilities or cognitive impairments are not able to masturbate efficiently (not able to access pleasure, orgasm or ejaculation) and often can have self-mutilating practices (the use of inappropriate objects, aggressive gestures or creating wounds).

The lack of knowledge and know-how can also translate into inappropriate behaviors or violence toward others. We have encountered, in our professional practice, several deaths because of self-mutilation in an effort to masturbate.

At the end of this teaching program, we propose two explicite videos about masturbation that is designed to be a supplementary tool when the other explanations, pictograms, drawings and photos have yet to bring the skills desired. This final film must not clear the tutor tandem of their responsibility to support, validate and evaluate the teaching process.

There are many ways to caress your genitals. Our objective, here, is to give basic knowledge, an explicit but non-exhaustive approach to the many ways a person (girl or boy, woman or man), alone, can find pleasure and sexual satisfaction.

This teaching tool is not looking to create a normative method. This teaching tool is looking to give insight as to how to find one’s own pleasure, without harming one’s self or bothering others.
