The Basics of Masturbation
28 Tips to help you get inspired when masturbating
If you're a novice at getting yourself off, you'll be glad to know that almost all women masturbate in some form or another. Here are a few tried-and-true techniques from Libida.com to help you make the most of your self-pleasuring.
First, you'll want to find a place where you'll be comfortable. Letting go of your inhibitions is easier if you’re not worrying about who might be walking through the door.
Speaking of company, try going it alone at first. There is more room for exploration and, learning to please yourself can be incredibly rewarding.
Pay attention to what turns you on. Adult videos or spicy erotic novels are always great fodder for fantasies. You can imagine your lover to be anyone, at all -- even that cute bagger at the grocery store.
Enjoy the experience. Being goal-oriented can really undermine your enjoyment. Orgasms are great, but there's a plethora of other stuff to enjoy along the way. Take your time.
Masturbation can become an art form in itself -- whether you enjoy it sporadically, or use it frequently as a stress reliever. Don’t worry about what you think you should or shouldn't be doing. Feel free to experiment with something new. There's nothing wrong with using your old favorites, but it can be fun to branch out.
