The Complete Guide To Masturbation

There's a world of sex toys out there! (photo courtsey of krazydad / jbum)

FAQ’s Q: Is it considered masturbating if you just touch yourself, but not orgasm? A: Masturbating is touching your own genitals for pleasure. Though many people enjoy bringing themselves to orgasm when they masturbate, not everyone does. Either way is fine and perfectly normal. Q: Can someone under the age of 18 buy a vibrator or dildo? A: Sex toys like vibrators and dildos are perfectly healthy and safe, but in most states, you can only get sex toys at adult only stores or on adult only websites where you need to be 18 (and in some places 21) to enter. More on there here! Q: Is there a “normal” way to masturbate? Is there a “wrong” way to do it? Is it okay to touch other parts of your body? A: When it comes to masturbation, anything goes! Many gURLs enjoy touching their clitoris and vagina, but it is perfectly normal to touch any part of your body and enjoy it. As long as it feels good, you’re doing it right. Q: Is there such a thing as “too much masturbation”? A: Nope! Some people masturbate every day (sometimes more than once), some people masturbate once a week, and some people never masturbate at all. This is all normal. Professionals only think that masturbating frequently is a problem if is gets in the way of other things going on in your life, (for example, if you avoid seeing friends or doing homework in order to masturbate). But, that generally isn’t a common problem. Q: What are the common ways in which an orgasm is reached? What does an orgasm feel like? How do you know you’ve had one? A: There are many different ways for a gURL to have an orgasm. Most gURLs reach orgasm from clitoral stimulation. But some gURLs can have orgasms from vaginal penetration alone or even through nipple stimulation or fantasizing. An orgasm is the release of all the muscle tension that has built up during sexual arousal. During orgasm, chemicals called endorphins are also spilled into the blood stream. These chemicals can cause intensely pleasurable feelings and can make someone feel happy, giddy or sleepy.

    I hate to say it but maybe toys are just necessary for a woman’s orgasm duty unless the couple happens to get lucky and she has one during sex. Maybe we just need to accept this with some women and stop seeing a ‘problem’ with this circumstance. There is also a chance to try iwantucams_com/search/model/hairColor/brunette with your gf. Otherwise, everything else that makes the sex good might be compromised in an effort that toys can readily address.

      Look im not stating facts but ive heard plenty of stories of people starting earlier than that. Im 12 and i started when i was your age im almost 13 though. i think its normal because around our age teens and pre teens usually start to feel urges. And its totally normal just embrace and enjoy yourself because after all noone has to know and its natural

    I am a 14 girl and I have played with myself since I was eight. I get off by rubbing my hard clit up and down fast and sometimes fingering my ass hole. I taught my brother who is 12 to rub me and he has learned to shoot off.

    Hey I’m a girl and my boyfriend and I have been talking about this stuff recently and he wants to finger me and I’m okay with that, like I feel ready, the only problem is that whenever I’ve tried to finger myself, I never orgasmed and I don’t want that to happen in front of him … help?

    I am 15 as well and glad to see all of these tips and comments. I always felt like I was too young to be masterbating and I felt like I was ‘bad’ if I did. But I do it a lot and now I’m getting to the point where I wanna have sex. But I don’t wanna loose it so young. But every time I see my boyfriend I just wanna jump on him and take his clothes off. (I feel like I sound like a horrible person for saying that) But I’m not able to get off very easily by my hands. I can’t find a good way to pleasure myself anymore
