How to Masturbate With Your Fingers

Learning The Basics: Masturbating With Your Fingers

In a study conducted by the Indiana University’s National Survey Of Sexual Health And Behavior, it was found out that only 7.9 percent of women between the ages of 25 and 29 masturbate two to three times a week.

This figure tells us that there is some sort of gender gap when compared to the men’s results (23.4%). 

While there are various reasons why the result is what it is, perhaps there will be a shift once some women are able to master masturbating with their fingers. 

While the subject may not be discussed openly, the majority of women have masturbated at some point in their lives. 

However, there might be others out there who haven't gotten the hang of it yet and might need to know some of the basics of masturbation. 

Why Masturbate?

Contrary to some beliefs, masturbation is totally normal!

If you need reasons why you should not shy away from all the solo action that you might be missing out on, take a look at some of the benefits that you will get. 

Best Way To Orgasm

If you are looking for something to lessen the tension in your body, try masturbating! Apart from that, this is a great and safe way to orgasm.

It allows you to learn about what your body likes and how you respond sexually. 

Do remember that just like most things in life, it takes practice before you can master the art of making yourself orgasm through masturbation. 

Good For You

When you masturbate, there is an increase in blood flow throughout your body. This leads to the release of endorphins which can relieve stress.

Improves Sex Life 

Masturbation is a great way to get in touch with the wants, needs, and desires of your body. When you listen to what your body is telling you, it allows you to be more acquainted with it, leading you to be more sexually comfortable and confident. 

Good for your vagina

Masturbation can pave the way for your orgasms. When you orgasm, it helps in keeping the pelvic floor healthy and strong.

When your pelvic floor is in tip top shape, this helps in promoting overall sexual health and in preventing problems such as urinary incontinence.  

Help You Sleep Better

As mentioned before, endorphins are released after you orgasm. When this happens, it not only help you with stress relief, but it promotes deeper sleep.

Good For Your Heart

According to some studies, women who are able to experience more orgasms (whether alone or otherwise) are less prone to coronary disease and type-2 diabetes.

Get The Solo Party Started

Before you start masturbating using your fingers, here are some tips that you should remember before getting it on solo.

  • Believe or not but the setting of your solo play can make a difference. Make sure you are in a relaxed environment that’s free from any distractions so that you are able to maximize your solo play.

  • Don’t forget the lube! When you are aroused, the body has the natural response of lubricating itself. However, there might be times that it won’t be enough. Make sure you have some lubricant with you so as to add more pleasure to your masturbation session.

  • Take as much time as you want! There is absolutely no rush. Take time to enjoy the sensations that you are feeling. Doing so would allow you to figure out techniques and tricks that would work for you.

  • Go and explore your erogenous zones. As these zones are areas in the body with heightened sensitivity, playing with them can create sensations and pleasures throughout the body.

Take Note Of These Masturbation Dos

Before you let your fingers do all the work, there are some things that you should probably take note of. These simple reminders will help you master the art of masturbating using your fingers.

Hygiene is key

Consider your vagina as your holy temple or Holy Grail. As precious as it is, you must know how to take care of it.

To avoid any form of bacteria from invading your sacred space, make sure you keep your vagina clean and fresh. Don't forget to wash your hands.

Apart from that, make sure you clean your fingernails or else the bacteria will find a new nesting ground. 

Learn to “chillax”

Perhaps some of the issues that women who attempt to masturbate face are either the feeling of nervous or awkwardness and the freakiness of the idea of fingering themselves.

It's high time you learn the art of relaxation. Don't let your anxiety get the best of you!

Tease Yourself

Masturbation is not only limited to your vagina and clitoris. It should be a full body experience.

A woman’s body has erogenous and sensitive zones that need to be taken advantage of! Don’t neglect these when you are self-pleasuring! 

Use your fingers to explore your body - starting from your waist and moving to your stomach, ribs, under the boobs and your nipple.

Try twisting, tweaking, pulling or rubbing your nipples gently. You’ll be surprised by the sensation this will bring to the rest of your body. 

Explore Your Vaginal Lips

The inner and outer lips of the vagina have their own nerve endings. When you try to stimulate these parts, you will be surprised by just how pleasurable they are!

If you want to explore these vaginal parts, start by running your fingers up and down the outer lips. Try giving it a squeeze for good measure. 

You can then try pulling the lips - start gently. 

Once you’ve got that going, you can add a little more pressure. When you pull the lips, this activates your lubrication glands, increasing your arousal. 

Explore Your Clitoris

Did you know that the clitoris has about 8,000 nerve sensitive endings?

Take advantage of this fact by exploring what your clitoris has to offer.   

Start by stimulating the clitoris. Depending on how you want to stimulate yours, you can either brush your fingers over and back or you can do so in a gentle circular manner. Whatever motion you do, remember that a little experimentation helps you figure out what you enjoy the most.   

Once you've got that figured out, focus on what makes you feel good! 

The next step that you should take once you've got things going is learning how to finger yourself. Before your finger enters your vagina, make sure it is well lubricated or else you risk injuring yourself.

Masturbating using your fingers might lead to clitoral orgasm! 

You can start by massaging the fleshy area found on top of your pubic bone then you can try running your fingers along the outer and inner lips of the vulva. The next thing that you should do is to start rubbing or stroking your clitoris through its hood.

Try forming a "V" using your middle and pointer fingers, sliding them up and down the sides of the clitoral sides. 

Figure out the rhythm that feels the best for you and makes you feel good! Once you can feel that your clit has gotten wet -either naturally or with the help of a lubricant, move your fingers harder and faster. 

Increase the pressure by exerting heavier pressure until you orgasm! 

Finding your G-spot

Apart from the clitoris, the G-spot is another erogenous area of the body that you should explore.

If you are aiming for an even more intense orgasm, stimulating the G-spot can help you get just that! 

The G-spot or the Gräfenberg Spot is located about two to three inches inside the vagina. 

If you make the “come hither’ motion, you will be able to feel it around the front wall of the vagina. If you feel like you touched a rough patch that feels rubber-like, you have hit the target! 

Try stimulating it by rubbing your finger a little harder. Once you feel like you’re about to pee, your G-spot orgasm is about to come!  

Stimulate And Masturbate

Masturbating using your finger is not as hard as you think it is!

If you’re feeling a little tense and edgy, remember that it’s all in your mind. Try to relax and make the most out of your solo playtime. 

"If you’re feeling a little tense and edgy, remember that it’s all in your mind. Try to relax and make the most out of your solo playtime."

Take your masturbation session to the next level by figuring out the best positions for you to masturbate using your fingers.

It could either be with you lying on your back with a pillow propped under your head, spread your legs and bend them at the knees or it could be crouching down with your heels close to or touching the back of your thighs and sliding your fingers into your vagina. 

Whatever position it is, make sure you are safe and comfortable. 

Once you have got that solo party in full swing, stimulate and masturbate until you orgasm, and you start seeing stars!
