As a 26 yr old woman, why do I still feel guilty after masturbation?

As a 26 yr old woman, why do I still feel guilty after masturbation?

Female sexuality: I hope your question inspires lots of supportive discussion. We still do not do well by females when it comes to sexuality. Touching your body, exploring how it works, and taking care of your needs are the gift of being a human. As you age I hope you can learn that sexuality is a gift and not a curse; that your needs and sexual desires are valid. Nearly every female you know masturbates or has. ...Read more

I'm a 17-year old female virgin and I have recently tried to masturbate but it is the most painful thing I've ever experienced. Is something wrong?

Masturbation: Masturbation should not be painful. It is a normal part of life and should be pleasurable. Focus on the areas of your genitals on the outside like the clitoris. Perhaps the pain was from inserting into the vagina? Consider watching a video online on female masturbation to get some ideas on how other women masturbate. Don't do anything that hurts. If it does not improve then see an Obgyn ...Read more

Is masturbation healthy when you are 19 years old?(female) why does it take me a long time orgasm?

Is masturbation healthy when you are 19 years old?(female) why does it take me a long time orgasm?

Not unhealthy!: There is absolutely nothing medically wrong with masturbation, but plenty of religious and old-fashioned ideas exist that can make one feel "guilty" about it. That's also probably the reason it's an effort for you. If you are ok with it then free yourself from the "stigma" and learn what feels good. You will be a better partner if you know what you like and communicate this when ready! Practice! ...Read more

Hi, I'm a 21-year-old female. I've been masturbating since I was a teen and in the last year it hurts to penetrate my vagina. It that normal?

When sex hurts : Here is an excellent and comprehensive link from ACOG for you. It is important for a woman to get screened when you have pain during insertion. The USPST also wants young women to be screened for STDs as a safety measure. This is around the time USPST recommends you start getting Pap smears as well. Good luck.

This is fine: Enjoying your body will not make you weak or infertile. I am very sorry that anyone told you such a foolish thing. Look for love if that's what you want. Enjoying yourself has taught you how your body responds and how best to enjoy a possible partner and be ready for mature loving. Don't be oppressed by anything -- and especially not superstition. ...Read more

I am a female, and I am 18yrs old. I started masturbating since it helps me instead of self harming. But I would like to know how to feel while I masturbate? I mean since I stopped having that good feeling?

I am a female, and I am 18yrs old. I started masturbating since it helps me instead of self harming. But I would like to know how to feel while I masturbate? I mean since I stopped having that good feeling?

Hard to say: First I am glad you are not hurting yourself anymore. Emotions can be strong and confusing at times. Masturbation can have some positive effects but as with any activity if your mood worsens or you spend too much time in this activity you may consider visiting with a therapist.
