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.
