Do Vulcans Masturbate?

I was recentally thinking, on Voyager they came up with a solution to ponn farr by having Tuvok or Vorik have sex with holographic representations of their wives, which seemed to work. For Tuvok anyway.

However, maybe I'm missing something here, but sex with a hologram just seems like a sophisticated version of masturbation. So if holographic sex is enough to stave off ponn farr, wouldn't standard hands-on masturbation work as well?

So that raises the question, do Vulcans even masturbate at all? Because if they don't, that sure is an obvious solution to ponn farr. One that doesn't require dada, da, da, da, da, da, da, dada da dah, dada, da, da, da, da, da, da, dada DA dah.

I'm just imagining Tuvok performing the self-activity while humming that tune the whole time...

they do, but they call it 'private meditation' and it is a personal experience not to be discussed with Earthmen...

I mean what do you think Sarek was REALLY up to when that Tellerite got killed...

Re: Do Vulcans Masturbate?

It is my theory that the Vulcans' reproductive organs and sensual areas are actually their fingers. So yes. In fact, they flash their junk at you the moment they see you and one last time as they leave!

We have even seen Spock masturbate in this case. When he appears deep in thought with his fingers pressed together in a "steeple" like fashion, the fingers being the sexual organs. Apparently, masturbating helps him think.

Yeah, the inconsistency between Voyager here and Amok Time is ridiculous. According to Voyager, Spock wasn't pursuing a biological absolute necessity; he was just a tremendous asshole who was willing to mutiny to get laid, when a puppet or Majel Barrett would have solved the problem.

I just totally ignore that episode. It's also silly that Tuvok needs Tom Paris' help to build a masturbation fantasy. Like Voyager's computer doesn't have ten thousand templates for that sort of nonsense already.

No they just wash it very thoroughly in the shower. Like everyone else.

Re: Do Vulcans Masturbate?

I think I've heard that sperm in humans can be reabsorbed into the body, perhaps it's the same in Vulcans.

Or, perhaps they just store it up, and do it hundreds of times, like lions and leopards do, when they do it.

Vulcan women must get sore!

Dunno. Is masturbation logical?
