If you’ve already read the in depth masturbation article on how to pleasure yourself, but want more specific masturbation techniques, then you’re in luck! Below you will find 10 different masturbation tips & techniques to guarantee you have super powerful orgasms. The other great reason to read this article is to fully understand your anatomy and what parts of your vagina give you the most pleasure.
You’ll find that you enjoy some of these techniques more than others when masturbating.The key is trying them all out and then figuring out which ones you enjoy the most. Lets start with some of the basic techniques, then move onto the more fun ways to masturbate.
1. Classic 4 Finger Masturbation
This is probably the most used masturbation technique of the 10 listed here. It’s simple to do and will work well for anyone that enjoys lots of clitoral stimulation. All you need to do is find a comfortable position where you can easily access your clit with your hand.
Then it’s a simple case of holding your 4 fingers together and rubbing them back and forth over your clit like in the diagram below.
Like with all the fingering techniques here, the key is experimenting with the direction and pressure you apply. Some women will prefer moving their fingers side to side, while others enjoy more of an up & down motion that also covers their labia and rest of their vagina. As I always say here, make sure to do lots of experimentation and see what you enjoy the most.
While the 4 finger technique is great for reaching orgasm, it’s not so good if you enjoy long drawn out ‘teasing’ masturbation. Thankfully the next technique will teach you just that.
2. U Spot
Not many people seem to know about the U Spot. It’s the area of skin just above your urethral opening and to the sides of it. To stimulate it you just need to very gently stroke it with the tip of your finger like in the illustration below. You’ll find that using lots of lube is best to help keep it pleasurable. For some women, the U Spot can extend higher than in this illustration, to right below the clitoris.
3. Fingering Yourself
I’ve covered a lot of masturbation techniques to bring yourself to orgasm that focus on your clit. However, there are also a lot of great techniques to make yourself cum that involve penetrating yourself. Fingering yourself is the easiest.
It’s a simple case of making sure that your fingers have enough lube on them, using either something like coconut oil or your own natural lubrication and then slowly penetrating yourself. While you can simply stick your fingers in and out of your vagina to find out for yourself what feels most pleasurable, I always recommend that you try stimulating your G Spot as this is almost guaranteed to give you an orgasm.
The one tricky part for some women is finding your G Spot. Don’t worry, I created a whole guide on finding your G Spot and having incredible G Spot orgasms here. But if you don’t have time to read it, here is the short version.
Your G Spot is located about 2-3 inches inside your vagina as you can see in the diagram and you can only find it when you are aroused as I explain in the article on finding your G Spot. So if it’s your first time, spend 10-15 minutes first getting yourself in the mood.
Now it’s just a case of stimulating it. Insert 1 or 2 fingers and use the tips of them to press it, massage it and rub it. You can learn more about rubbing your G Spot in the squirting article here and the guide to your G Spot here.
4. Love That Shower Head!
If you haven’t yet used a shower head or faucet to get off then you are missing out! While it’s not exactly a standard masturbation technique, it feels incredible, yet quite different. All you need is a faucet that you can maneuver your vagina under so that the water can freely flow over it or a shower head that you can direct towards your vagina.
I don’t know the exact science behind it, but everyone that tries it reports that the running water feels wonderful and can help you get off very, very quickly. So experiment with the settings on your shower head to find out what feels best. Quick Hint: You may find that the ‘pulse’ setting is best
5. Delightful Dildos
This last masturbation technique doesn’t involve your clit at all. Instead you’ll be using a dildo to masturbate with and reach orgasm. I’m going to assume that you already have a dildo (or dildo shaped object) and get straight to some techniques you can perform with it when masturbating.
The In & Out – The easiest way to masturbate with a dildo is to simply push it in and pull it out of your vagina, over and over. However, if you angle it a bit, then you can hit your G Spot & A Spot which will be a lot more pleasurable.
Using Your Dildo On Your G Spot – Like I’ve already said, you first need to be aroused to hit your G Spot (link to G Spot article). Once you are, then you simply need to angle the dildo so that it’s making direct contact with it. You can see the angle that you need to make from the diagram below. Just remember that you really only need short, shallow strokes to hit your G Spot. Like I explain in the article on stimulating your G Spot, it’s about 2-3 inches deep.
Using Your Dildo On Your A Spot – If you’d prefer to go deeper with your dildo, then you’ll hit your A Spot, also known as your anterior fornix. Make sure you are careful at first as you might accidentally hit your cervix when looking for it, which is very painful. If you are having trouble finding it, then you may need to experiment with the angle of penetration a little bit until you find it.
You can see in the illustration below that your A Spot is located much deeper in your vagina, very close to your cervix. It’s location is called the anterior fornix erogenous zone or AFE.
6. In Da Hood
Some women have a super-sensitive clitoris. So sensitive in fact, that it can almost be painful to touch. If you are one of these women, then you may find that using any of my masturbation techniques that I have described above to be too uncomfortable…and possibly even painful.
If that’s the case, then instead of using my techniques to apply pressure directly to your clit, you need to instead use your clitoral hood as a buffer. That’s the flap of skin just above your clit that covers it. I’ve indicated it in the illustration above with a slightly darker shade of pink (in real life your clitoral hood has no distinct color). So if you have an overly sensitive clit, then try rubing your clitoral hood instead of your clit. You’ll notice that it’s a lot more pleasurable.
7. Hood Life
Now, you may happen to be someone who suffers from a lack of sensitivity and so need all the rubbing, grinding, touching & stimulation you can get on your clitoris. No problem, the Bad Girl’s Bible can help. To allow yourself to stimulate your clit more heavily, you’re going to need to expose it more. It’s easy and the demonstration above should be all you need to expose it.
As you can see, by placing your fingers above your clit and on either side of it, then slowly pulling the skin backwards, you will pull back the clitoral hood and expose it much more. Now you can use your other hand or a vibrator to stimulate it directly.
The featherlite technique is just like it sounds, it involves a ‘feather light’ touch. It’s best to perform the featherlite technique while lying down in bed, with your legs spread open. You’re then going to use just one finger (usually your index finger) to gently apply the tiniest amount of pressure to the very edge of your clitoris as demonstrated in the diagram below.
You’re only going to move your finger a few millimeters back and forth making sure to apply only the slightest amount of pressure to your clit. Many women report that it just feels too frustrating and they can’t keep doing it for long, that it feels like they are teasing themselves, while others report that the longer they do it, the better it feels.
My advice is to at least try it and do your absolute best to hold out for as long as you can, making sure to always use the very least amount of pressure possible.
9. Humping & Grinding Your Pillow
Many women first learn to masturbate through humping or grinding on their pillow. It’s perfect for stimulating your clit and labia at the same time. You’ll find that you get most friction, stimulation and pleasure if you are wearing your panties or nothing at all while grinding yourself off your pillow. Here are a few different ways to do it.
- If you have a long pillow like the one above, you can lie down on your side with it between your grip it between your legs and pull it backwards so that it is against your labia and clit. Then just start grinding.
- If you don’t have a long pillow like the one in the picture above, grab a mid sized one and turn it on it’s side and straddle it. Or fold it in half and straddle it, whichever works best for you. Then rest your weight right down on it. Before you start grinding on it, you can adjust it so that it’s firmly pressed against your vagina. Then simply move your vagina up and down the pillow and ride it to orgasm!
- Another great way to provide even more pressure and stimulation to your vagina when pleasuring yourself is to cover your pillow tightly with a towel before you start masturbating with it. This way you will be grinding over your slightly more rough towel instead of your pillow. It also prevents your pillow from getting wet. Bonus Tip: You can also experiment with putting different things like stuffed toys or electric toothbrushes under the towel for a different sensation when reaching orgasm.
- Using a pillow is just the start. Why not try grinding on your man the next time you are making out with him. Simply straddle his thigh and start grinding!
10. Vibrator Time
Vibrators…Some call it cheating, but most don’t care because it feels so dam good! Vibrators can give you the most intense orgasms…but beware…often they can end up making your clit feel a little sore if you use them too much.
Everyone has their own personal preferences so I don’t want to prescribe any one technique as the only technique. Here are a few ideas to get you going:
- Some adore rubbing their vibrators all over their bodies and can even orgasm from using them on their breasts and nipples.
- Some love feeling the vibrations indirectly on their clit. Direct stimulation can sometimes be too much. So use tip #9 if that sounds like you.
- Some need direct stimulation on their clit to cum.
- Some adore running their vibrator up and down their labia.
- Some adore being penetrated by their vibrator.
If you are using a vibrator to masturbate, my advice is to play around with it and see what gives you the most pleasure. There is no “one size fit all” method to using a vibrator to orgasm. For more tips & info on how to use your vibrator, check out this guide here.
