A circle jerk is a sexual practice in which a group of men or boys form a circle and masturbate themselves or each other. In the metaphorical sense, the term is used to refer to a "boring or time-wasting meeting or other event".
Circle jerks are typically an experience of adolescents in early puberty and often feature a competitive element, with the "winner" being the participant able to ejaculate first. They can serve as an introduction to sexual relations with other males, and are a sexual outlet at an age when regular sexual intercourse with a girl is not possible. Where the heterosexual frame is adhered to, each male masturbates only himself, and touching another participant's genitals is forbidden.
While circle jerks feature a homoerotic element, some analysts interpret adolescent boys' group activities such as circle jerks as an effort to establish heterosexual, masculine dominance within the group. What actually motivates participation is to have friends witness and acknowledge one's sexual prowess, helping to counter teenage feelings of inadequacy related to sex.
