Whether you’re a bit of an expert or you’re curious about starting, here’s everything you need to know about masturbation. Simply put, masturbation is the act of pleasuring yourself by touching your genitals.
At that point, masturbation becomes more than just fiddling around with parts that feel nice to fiddle: The goal is to try to have an orgasm. These sensations center around your genitals and, frankly, feels amazing.
Orgasms are hard to explain, but when you’ve had one, you you’ve had one. Most girls and women use their hands to get the job done, but sex toys like vibrators are another fun option.
Just make sure that your hands and any and all devices you use are clean (and safe) before you get to work!
You might notice yourself getting wet, which is totally normal. If you find it difficult to get wet, consider using a water-based lubricant to help yourself out.
Being wet might make masturbation feel a little more comfortable, but it’s possible to have an orgasm without it.
Some folks feel more comfortable doing it when they have some alone time so that they can masturbate at their own pace. Even if they looked at your privates, the only way someone can know that you masturbate is if you straight up say, “Hey, you, I masturbate! However, you probably aren’t too inclined to do that, right? Will it be harder to orgasm from sex if I masturbate?Feel free to listen to music, read or watch something that turns you on or just do it in silence. Some women like to do it under the covers of a bed, some like to do it with the help of their shower head. Just take your time, be patient, and let your imagination wander until you reach your climax. That’s up to you and your own personal belief system. Honestly, knowing what allows you to have a proper orgasm will help lead to more pleasurable sex because you’ll know what turns you on. If we could put that word in bright, shiny lights, we would, because we think it’s great.Masturbation is just another step on that giant staircase we’d like to call self-discovery.Just like knowing exactly what kind of music you need to listen to after a bad day, or knowing if you like sandwiches with or without the crust, knowing how to turn yourself on is just one of those things that we figure out some way or another.But unlike sandwich crust and blasting Robyn when you’re down, female masturbation has such an unfair taboo attached to it. Masturbation is totally normal and, once you get the hang of it, it’s totally fun.
