Masturbation can be totally daunting. I also get frustrated by how easily I can get thrown off course, or about how particular I am with my environment. Ultimately, though, I feel happy to have one reliable way to get myself off. I know from my experience as an educator that there are many, many others who have yet to find a way they like to do it.

Exhibit A: I need intense pressure or vibration to get off, but my sexual partners for the first five years of my sex life only executed light, fluttery rubs and tickles or suction-y cunnilingus — which I hated.
The stimulation is more intense. And if you correctly combine circular movements with the amount of pressure that pleases you, it's sheer bliss! It's also amazing to take advantage of this position and massage your anus with the other free fingers. I have fantastic orgasms masturbating this way. Masturbation just got even better.
While it's common knowledge that boys play with themselves from the moment puberty hits, female masturbation is often seen as a taboo subject. Masturbation is categorically NOT bad for you.
