Origin of masturbate

  • Latin masturbārī masturbāt-

    From American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language, 5th Edition

  • From Latin masturbārÄ«; further derivation uncertain; one suggestion is from manus (“hand") + turbare (“to throw into disorder"), whence the words disturb and trouble.
