Best Female Masturbation Techniques

Bring your personal sex life to new heights with the best female masturbation techniques.

As Cyndi Lauper once said, “Girls just wanna have fun.”

And while it is fun to have a playmate, it’s also fun to do our own thing. No offense, guys or girls—sometimes it’s nice to shut the curtains (or not), lie back (or not), and indulge in oneself. There are two types of women in this world: those who masturbate and those who lie. We all do it. Go on, admit it! Nobody’s going to point the finger at you (not before they’ve washed it, anyway).

So why not spice things up a bit with our guide to some of the best female masturbation techniques? And when I say spice, I don’t mean so literally—as much as it’s fun to play with food, using a habanero in place of a vibe is going to buuuurn.

Whether you prefer skin on skin, purpose-built toys, or water, there is cliterally a whole host of female masturbation techniques to get yourself off.

The Missionary Position of Masturbation

Ok, so I’m pretty sure I don’t have to go into detail for this one. It’s as vanilla as jilling off can be, but it’s effective nonetheless. Lying on your back, or on your front, or on your knees… the methodology is the same. Use some lube so you don’t take a layer of skin off, and trace the eights to your heart’s content. Job done.

However, even with this most basic way to get there, there are indeed variations on a theme. For instance, instead of just playing teddy bear’s picnic with your clitoris—you know, “round and round the garden, like a teddy bear”—make like Winston Churchill and go…

Ever since Sex and the City made sex toy ownership an empowering thing for women, the industry providing female pleasure has exploded. Fans of penetrative sex can rejoice because this means that you can get amazing G-spot orgasms using a vibrator like the silicone-based LELO Gigi 2. The Gigi 2 and vibrators like it are specially designed to reach that sexy spot inside.

V for Victory

Make a “V” with the index and middle finger of your non-dominant hand, and place one finger on each side of your clitoris. Squeeze them together slightly, and with the other hand, rub your clitoris. You can also slide the “V” up and down at the same time.

(Note: this masturbation technique may take time to master, rather like rubbing your tummy and patting your head in sync… it’s fun practicing, though.)

Things That Go Hump in the Night

That would be you! Your bedroom is a smorgasbord of things to hump—just look around. Some of my favorites include pillows, cushions, and teddy bears (although the fur does tend to matt after a while).

Lie face-down on the bed, with whichever object that takes your fancy positioned between your legs, and hump away. Make sure it is in direct contact with your clitoris and make like a man—(and you’ll also get a feel for how hard men actually work during sex!)
