We Asked A Sex Expert If It's Possible To Give Yourself A Blowjob

You know what they say: A blowjob is better than no job*.

*No one actually says that.

You remember all those rumors about blowjobs when you were growing up, right? You know, the one about Marilyn Manson having some of his ribs removed so he can give himself head. Prince was largely rumored to have done the same.

Though neither of these urban myths have ever been busted (thanks for nothing, "Myth Busters") we took it upon ourselves to find out if it's actually possible. Because, journalism.

Nikky Prause, sexual psychophysiologist and founder of independent research institute Liberos LLC, told Elite Daily,

Physically, it is certainly possible for some men to phallate themselves, the main challenge likely would be psychological. It is very difficult to generate a sexual response intense enough to orgasm from genital stimulation alone. Studies applying vibrators on mens' penises — to study rapid ejaculation latency — found that without some visual stimulation, the men would not get a full erection. In other words, you need to be able to get a sexual mindset, which might be difficult if you are focused on the mechanics of merely being able to reach your penis.

Interesting.

*Bends over to test flexibility*.

The psychophysiologist added, "Possible to reach? Sure. Don't tell me you haven't tried Pornhub for this one. Possible to orgasm... maybe for some, but that would be the main block, I think."

So, in conclusion: Yes, this could definitely happen. But the guy would have to have major flexibility and one powerful imagination.
