The stimulation can be performed using the hands, fingers, everyday objects, or dedicated sex toys.

Mutual masturbation, which is masturbation with a partner, can take the form of non-penetrative sex.

 

Masturbation is a common and safe kind of sex play, yet it is generally avoided as a topic. It is a natural and common activity for both women and men.

Women who masturbate are more confident, more knowledgeable about their bodies, enjoy more fulfilling sex lives, have better marriages, and have better overall health, according to certified nurse midwife Carrie Levine.

Unfortunately, female masturbation has been demonized along history and many women feel shame and guilt, which prevents them from enjoying the self-gratification that comes with masturbation.

 

There are many harmful myths about masturbation that may cause us to feel uncomfortable about it. These myths they say can cause guilt, shame, and fear, This is partly because masturbation has been wrongly labelled as deviant, dangerous and sinful over the years and many of these out-dated myths still exist
