The Complete Guide To Masturbation

Your new BFF?

Even More FAQ’s Q: Why do some women use vibrating things to reach orgasm? Do men use vibration? Why does vibration feel good to some people? A: A lot of women and some men find the sensation of vibration very pleasurable. Many women like vibration on the clitoris, but vibration can feel good in the vagina or anus, on the nipples and on the perineum or penis. The clitoris and the head of the penis have hundreds of nerve endings in them so stimulating of these areas with vibration can help a person orgasm. In fact, many women first have an orgasm by using vibration. Q: Is it okay to masturbate with a faucet or shower head in the bathtub? Is it dangerous to put water inside you? A: This is perfectly healthy, safe and very common. Masturbating with a shower head or faucet will not damage a gURL’s internal or external organs, and it can be an enjoyable way to explore one’s body. gURLs should keep in mind, however, that it isn’t a good idea to force a lot of water into the vagina or anus. Some people think that it is important to clean the vagina out by douching, but this is actually unnecessary. The vagina cleans itself (that’s part of the function of discharge), so putting additional water into the vagina can actually strip it of healthy bacteria and make an infection more likely. Q: Is it safe to masturbate when I have my period? A: It is perfectly safe to masturbate when a gURL has her period and having an orgasm can actually help relieve menstrual cramps. Some gURLs choose to masturbate in the bath or shower when they have their periods to avoid having to deal with clean up, but that is purely a matter of personal choice. If a gURL is wearing a tampon, she should make sure to take it out before inserting anything else. Q: I can’t make myself have an orgasm when I masturbate, what’s wrong? A: This is a very common concern for gURLs. Most women experience orgasm through clitoral stimulation and not through vaginal penetration. The clitoris is a gland jam-packed with nerve endings. It is located at the top of a woman’s vulva, between her inner labia and looks a little like the tip of a finger or nose. If a woman is finding it hard to reach orgasm, she can try clitoral stimulation during, before, or after vaginal penetration. Many people decide to devote a certain amount of time (for example an hour every few days for a few weeks) to learning how to have an orgasm. It is a good idea to find a time when you can have some privacy (and won’t be bothered) to practice. A lot of women also find it easier to reach orgasm if they fantasize about something that turns them on while masturbating.

    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?

  • Casie

    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
