Make Sure You're ReadyFirst things first, why do you want to start masturbating? Are you actually ready? Or do you only want to do it because you've been hearing so much about it? These are all questions you need to ask yourself before jumping on in. You shouldn't feel pressured to do anything sexual, because if you don't enjoy it, it can really ruin sex for you. So, start thinking about WHY you want to masturbate, then proceed. Image Source: iStock
Get ComfortableThe most important part about masturbating is to make sure you're comfortable. Even if you get the urge to masturbate in the school bathroom...just, don't. Do it somewhere you are comfortable, like your room or your bed. The better you feel about where you are physically, the better you will feel mentally. Image Source: iStock
Look At A MirrorThis isn't a MUST, but it's actually a really good idea to see what's going on down there, especially if you're just starting out. Grab a mirror or head to the bathroom and get a look at yourself. It's a little scary, but the more you know about your body, the more you will get comfortable enough to try out things you like.

Make Sure No One Is AroundOkay, the aboslute worst part about masturbating is the idea that someone can walk in on you at any moment. To prevent this, make sure to check your surroundings before you decide to masturbate. You don't want to be interrupted! Image Source: iStock
Turn Yourself OnYes, you need to turn yourself on. You shouldn't just start masturabting without at least being in the mood, or else it won't really be fun. Do whatever you need to get in the right headspace, whether it's watching porn (yes, girls do it) or daydreaming about your fave celebs (yes, everybody does it). Image Source: iStock

Do you like to hump your pillow? All of these things are fine, it's just a matter of finding out what you like the best. Try out a few different things, then stick with whatever feels good!
