Kaufman, Silverberg and Odette, Welcome to masturbation , which is all about solo sex involving you, you and you. Sex with yourself involves you pleasuring your mind and body.
So there you have it, by international consensus — you can definitely have great sex on your own. Does that sound wrong to you? As long as you treat your genitals gently without hurting them, masturbation is a healthy part of your sexuality. Girls are often told that certain parts of their bodies — like their genitals or breasts — are dirty, shameful, and not meant to be discussed, touched, and certainly not pleasured. But these areas are as much a part of your body as your hair or eyes, and there is really nothing dirty about them at all.
None of these are true. A lot of these myths were created because people thought women should only have sex so they could have babies. If you were sexually abused, you might feel like any contact with your genitals is shameful or dirty. How can I masturbate? Fantasy, hands and fingers, pillows, feathers, clean and appropriately shaped objects and water are commonly used by women to pleasure themselves.
It can be used by directing a shower or blast of water at your genitals or any other sensitive body part , keeping in mind not to direct the water straight into the vagina or anus. This can be a good technique if the only real privacy you get is in the shower or toilet. While most of the stuff on the internet is generally geared towards straight men who want to watch a woman touching herself while staring into the lens of a camera, there are a few great forums and resources that focus on making women feel good.
For example, this site is a space for women to share techniques they use to pleasure themselves. Use lots of lubricant, spit or water to prevent your skin from feeling raw afterwards.

Mix up the sensation. Sexual pleasure can come from friction, vibrations, pressure, heat, or cold. Try different kinds of feelings — pressing something against your body feels very different to lightly tickling it with a feather. Try and see what works for you. Strange though it sounds, you may have to change your routine. By imagining yourself in different sexual situations, you can explore the things that arouse you apart from direct contact with your genitals. This could include anything from rubbing your nipples to caressing your neck to feeling a blast of water against your body.
There is no age limit on learning new ways to masturbate, and though it can be tiring and frustrating to figure out what works for you, the end result s will probably have been worth the effort. There are always people around me, so when can I masturbate? If you live with an attendant, caregiver, or even in a big joint family, privacy can be hard to come by.
Even so, private moments can still be carved out of most lives. Are there any moments when you know you will be alone? Maybe in the afternoon when you know everyone will be taking a nap?
If your caregiver is always with you, talk to her about needing more time on your own. If you have access to absolutely no privacy at all, then perhaps you can close your eyes and pretend to be asleep, letting your mind take you wherever you want. My 12 year old daughter is mentally disabled and she has started touching her private parts, even in public.
What can I do? Firstly, you must accept that what she is feeling is natural, and unrelated to her disability. All girls this age experience sexual desires and begin to explore their own bodies. You need to explain to her how and where she can masturbate safely.
Before talking to your daughter about these issues, consider your own comfort level on these issues. What are your own beliefs about masturbation? Are you comfortable using correct names for private body parts? Are you open to answering any questions she may have? Do you see your daughter as a full human being who has the right to pleasure?
