Fingers or Vibrator?

But you should know about your genital area first. Knowing its parts and where and what should you stimulate to achieve pleasure is important. Play around, take your time and explore your genital area. It is good to figure out which area stimulates you and arouse you most, leading to orgasm. Begin by using the fingers and determine what kind of touch and rhythm is best for you. Some women like soft and slow rhythms, while other like faster rhythms and more pressure. Using a vibrator is a good way of experimentation while trying to pleasure your-self.

G-Spot vs. Clitoris

Clitoris is the most sensitive part of the woman’s body. It is the only organ in the human body designed for sexual pleasure. It has been estimated that most of the women do respond to clitoral stimulation and achieve an orgasm, when compared to the actual sexual intercourse with vaginal penetration. The clitoris itself has thousands of sensitive nerve endings, which make it very sensitive and very responsive through stimulation.

The G- Spot is another place of great pleasure except clitoris. It is a little area located 1-3 inches inside of the vagina, in the upper wall. Once found, it definitely guaranties an orgasm.

Side Effects of Masturbation

Frequent and excessive masturbation can irritate the skin of the genital area and vagina. But, there is no right or wrong way to masturbate and sex experts do agree that there is no definition of what is considered normal when considering masturbation.

Keep in mind that masturbation is something totally normal and healthy. Even though for some women it is a taboo, for others it is a healthy form of sexual expression and pleasure. Most importantly, remember that masturbation is a good and healthy thing for you, with some clearly recognized health benefits.
