Masturbation is typically an act more commonly known to be performed by men who need to relieve themselves of sexual tension, but this act of “petting” isn’t just one for the “boys”. In fact, female masturbation (or self-pleasuring) is a necessary discovery tool that every woman should adopt in her weekly routine.

1. Learn your sexual triggers

Sexual arousal can be a tricky thing, especially when it pertains to which areas of the vulva are the most sensitive and reactive in getting to the point of no return (the point of orgasm). By practicing self-pleasuring a woman can discover which areas of the vulva—lips, pubis mons, clitoral hood, clitoris vaginal opening—are most reactive during stimulation for sexual arousal. Learning sexual triggers is key in a woman’s ability to orgasm during sexual activity.

2. Experience an orgasm

It is a fact that over 70 percent of women do not experience an orgasm during penetrative sex, and this is partially due to the lack of clitoral stimulation provided during intercourse. Many women go through life believing they don’t have the ability to orgasm while others know the possibility is there yet never experience the euphoric experience of a climax. By using one’s hands or the assistance of vibrating accessories a woman can experience an orgasm and truly know what it is like to reach a peak during sex. Once an orgasm is experienced, she will never have to question this ability again.

There are several stages of arousal before reaching orgasm, and the vulva, vagina and entire body go through a range of changes. Masturbation is a great way to become aware of how the body changes and to know when an orgasm is on its way. Take the time to relax in a hot bath and explore.
