‘Every Man’ Illustrations: Masturbation

‘Every Man’ illustrations

by Chris Sav

This week’s theme has offered me another opportunity to be slightly immature. I thought it would be pertinent to revisit my friend – the squirrel in the woods (see ‘Every Man’: Testicles), so he could present me with a riddle on this subject:

He would say,
‘it is an act that is frowned upon, but one that involves great enjoyment.’
‘once you partake in it, you will understand why Kleenex have a ‘man size’ range.’
‘apparently Nietzsche used to do it four or five times a day, and this is how you justify it to yourself.’

I’ll leave you to ponder on whether any of the illustrations are autobiographical. Although I will say that once I spilt yoghurt down my t-shirt and only noticed when I was on my way to the shops. I was wrecked with anxiety, worried that I would bump into an acquaintance and have to explain, ‘um… it’s not jizz….’

And yes, it was yoghurt, okay?
