My top 10 movie masturbation scenes

Some time ago the lovely Cinema Parrot Disco did a Top Five Movie Scenes of Self-Pleasure and I thought… what a frigging fantastic idea. So I’ve done my own version (I promise I don’t just spend all my time nicking other people’s ideas… it’s just that some of them are so darned good!).

  1. MIB

    Oh you’ve limited your list to mainstream films… 😛

    1. Abbi

      I’ve limited my list to films I’ve actually seen…

  2. You’re going to get some crazy search terms from now on!

    1. Abbi

      Can’t be much worse than what I already get

  3. Ooh, naughty topic for a top 10. I love it! The Stoker scene is so creepy. American Beauty is a classic; it had to be here. Also, Shame, but if I had to pick, I’d go with the one where he’s mastrubating furiously (literally) in front of the mirror and then gets caught by his sister. Awkward! Even more awkward and so unsettling is the one in Black Swan. That shit gave me chills. And the one in Her is funny and oh-so-uncomfortable.

    1. Abbi

      Life is no fun if you don’t get to be naughty some of the time 😉 Great choice for Shame! I tried to find the quote from Her about the dead cat but sadly no luck. That was the moment I knew I was going to love the film.

      1. I agree! And thanks, hehe 😉 It’s hard to erase that scene from my memory!

        That thing with the cast is hilarious and so, so strange.

      2. That cat-scene is hilarious! So weird. Loved it!

  4. theipc

    Very nice!!

    1. Abbi

      Thanks! Making sure I keep it classy.

    2. Filthy, Eric. FILTH! ; )

        I learned from the blogging best.

        ( ! )

  5. Saw the pingback thingy at work today & couldn’t reply! Hahaha! I LOVE that you did this list. I often think “if my family ever find my blog, that self-pleasure post is the first one I’ll have to delete”. ; ) Can’t remember if I put in Not Another Teen Movie – maybe as an honorable mention. That was hilarious! And I hadn’t seen Stoker or Shame yet then. I’m hoping to see Her tomorrow! Great choices! Wow… This is done a lot in movies… : )

    1. Abbi

      You are always an inspiration! And you are right… it’s impressive that so many movies are such wankfests! Lol!

      1. Haha! I love the word wank!!!

        1. Abbi

          It’s such a fabulously British word.

    2. Oh no, you have to see Shame! Well, it’s quite depressing but there is something unforgettable.

      1. I did and I’ve reviewed it now. ; ) Just hadn’t seen it yet when I made the list! Good film! : )

        1. Good. It’s a must see.

  6. Stoker had a funny one. She gets turned on by some sick stuff! Really enjoyed the one in Her as well! Good choices Abby!

    1. Abbi

      Thanks! Yeah she really is a weird one…

  7. Haha! Great post Abbi. Who doesn’t enjoy throwing one out on occasion? 😉

    1. Abbi

      Thanks! It’s a healthy natural activity…

      1. Indeed it is! “…It happens to be sex with someone I love” 😉

  8. […] and then as always go check out her fantastic site for inspirational weight loss stories & her top 10 movie masterbation scenes. I’m not even making that up…….click the link if you don’t believe me […]

    One of these days, Abbi, I am going to send you a picture of myself. That way if I ever become a famous actor and I am in a ‘masturbation’ scene and you are watching you will spit out whatever you might have in your mouth at that particular moment and say, “Holy shit! I know that guy!” 🙂 😉 😀

    1. Abbi

      That would be AWESOME! This happens to be the most popular post I have ever written by the way. Lol!

      1. jmount43

        It’s popular because you shoot straight and don’t jerk people around.
