Female Masturbation And Female Ejaculation Facts And Information
No two women are alike. With so many different ways to masturbate, there are bound to be some that work for you and others that don't. Try new things, explore new fantasies and a whole new world of masturbatory pleasure can be yours. No matter what you've heard, it's a fact that females masturbate almost as much as men do. Though women don't necessarily feel the urgency to masturbate that men do, they definitely experience periods of heightened sexual arousal, particularly during puberty. Women tend to experience emotional as well as physical arousal so fantasies, mood and environment can all play a big part in the enjoyment of female masturbation.
Sex surveys have universally concluded that approximately 67% of sexually active women masturbate (though much fewer are likely to admit to it in public). Most women discover the joys of masturbation in their early teens and can continue for the rest of their lives. Females that are in and out of sexually active relationships may masturbate, depending on the preferences of the woman.
Probably the most important thing to remember when you begin masturbating is that you're doing it to have fun and become comfortable with your own body. Learn to navigate around your vagina. It's important to know where everything is before you start exploring.
A Time And A Place For Female Masturbation
Almost all female masturbation techniques will focus on stimulating the clitoris in a variety of ways until orgasm is reached. The best way to go about this task is to find a nice, quiet, private place, such as in a bedroom or where most men and women masturbate, the shower. If you're like me, you usually only resort to masturbation when you feel the need for some release of sexual tension, like when you're horny. Of course, masturbation just plain feels good, and doesn't depend on anyone else's ability to satisfy your needs, so often it is a great way to just let loose and relax. There are three main types of masturbation: manual stimulation involving the hands, water stimulation involving showers and jacuzzi jets, and auxilliary stimulation, involving dildos, vibrators, and other sexual toys. Part of the fun of masturbation is self-discovery though, so use the basic techniques here to discover some of your own more complex and more satisfying techniques.
Getting Warmed Up For Female Masturbation
Unless you're in a hurry, the best preparation for masturbation is by first arousing yourself through visual or audible stimuli such as movies, magazines, pictures, or whatever else you can think of. This serves to enhance your experience, and prepares your genitals for the type of further stimulation that you choose. This type of "foreplay" can often increase the tension during masturbation and often causes longer-lasting more intense orgasms.
Female Masturbation Techniques
The majority of women can only attain orgasm through manual stimulation. There are a few who can achieve orgasm through intercourse alone. Here are some techniques that might add a little variety to your masturbation play.
Manual stimulation - When most people first learn how to masturbate, they do so by stimulating themselves with their hands. For women, the clitoris can be stimulated in a wide variety of ways. The best way for you to learn what works and what doesn't is by experimenting. Try rubbing your clitoris in different ways, or if you find it too sensitive to rub directly, stimulate it indirectly by rubbing around it, on the clitoral hood, vagina, or even the labia. If something doesn't seem to work, try varying the intensity, frequency, and pressure.
Direct clitoral stimulation - For this technique you need to place your thumb and forefinger around the clitoris and gently roll it in between your fingers. Start off with a slow gentle roll and then gradually pick up the pace and the pressure according to what feels good to you.
Circular rub - take your first two fingers from either hand and place them over top of you clitoris. Then begin moving them in a circular motion over the top of the clitoris. You can vary the speed and pressure easily with this technique. If you want to change the feel slightly just add your favorite lube and everything becomes very slippery.
Tapping - This technique is a little different and it’s not for everyone, as with anything some things will work for some people and not for others. For this one use the left hand to pull the pussy lips back out of the way so that the clitoris is very exposed. Then with the index finger on your right hand lightly begin tapping the fingertip gently on the clitoris. It results in a very delicious sensation that builds to a point where you just can’t hold it back anymore.
Combination - Have your fingers from one hand playing with your clitoris, stimulating it however you wish. Take the other hand and place two or three fingers inside your vagina and begin thrusting. Basically you’re simulating intercourse with this action and it works rather nicely in tandem with the clitoral stimulation and can bring you to a rocking orgasm!
G-Spot Stimulation - Often described as the female equivilent of the male prostate, the g-spot (Grafenberg Spot) is a small mass of tissue about the size of a small pea that is located approximately two inches from the opening of the vagina.
Fingering - Using your fingers to masturbate yourself or your partner can be a wonderful experience, if you do it right. Simply thrusting your fingers into and out of a vagina looks like fun if you're watching a porno movie, but is unlikely to produce any real pleasure. We've outlined several useful techniques.
Water stimulation - The shower or bathtub is often the most private, most erotic place to get yourself off. Not only do you have your hands, but if you have a removable shower-head you can make use of that too. The running water also serves to lubricate and stimulate your entire body. Try to position yourself so that the water filling the tub is flowing right on your vulva, and brace yourself for a truly intense, erotic experience. If you can't do this, try using your hands to direct the flow of water over your clitoris with your hands. Try adjusting the water temperature or shower-head intensity to your liking, and while making use of your hands you're sure to have an explosive orgasm.
If you have access to a private jacuzzi or are alone in a public one, try experimenting with the water jets. Be careful though, they are often high-pressure so start off far away from them and move yourself in closer until you find the intensity that feels the best.
Female Masturbation Using Sex Toys
There are many types of things you can use for stimulation. Probably the most common type of toy is the dildo. They are usually made out of rubber or plastic, and often come on the shape of a penis. They are available in a wide variety of sizes, and they don't necessarily have to be huge to deliver the most pleasure. One purpose for dildos is to simulate intercourse, the type of intercourse you could have with a partner if they did everything that YOU want them to do. Again, the best way to find out what will get you off the best is to experiment with one, stimulating the clitoris in a variety of ways both directly and indirectly. You can also experiment with anal masturbation by using a dildo, and if you've never tried it but would like to experiment, using a dildo in your own privacy can be the best way.
Vibrators are another toy. These are often much like dildos, except they have electric motors that make them vibrate. These are much more versatile because the vibrating action can be applied to the clitoris, the entire vulva, the breasts and nipples, and on any part of your body that is sensitive to erotic stimulation. For an even more stimulating adventure, try using them in combination with other forms of manual stimulation.
There are many other types of sexual toys available in novelty shops and more discreetly, online sex shops. If you see something that appeals to you, try it out!
Cooling off after Female Masturbation
Once you've reached orgasm, you will probably want to take a few moments to savor the feeling and give your body a chance to return to normal. Or, if you are capable of multiple orgasms, you could start stimulating yourself again and again!
Benefits of Female Masturbation
Besides the obvious fact that masturbation gives you pleasure, there are several benefits to regular masturbation. Many women report that it helps them to relax and is much safer than sleeping pills, tranquilizers, drugs and alcohol.
Social and Moral Issues Regarding Female Masturbation
