Ok, now the other day I had a friend over nad was telling me how she masturbated my fingering herself..but I was reading a seventeen magazine a LONG time ago..and it was emberrsing stories, and the girl was saying how she was masturbating with a pillow...I've never heard of this! Do you just rub around on the pillow???? Is it the same effect you get from fingering yourself?? and my older cousin, was telling me about her first time, and saying taht her orgasms could last for up to a minute or more...but when I masturbate, it lasts for about 20 seconds...please answer these questions..thanxz!

Different people masturbate in different ways. Fingers and hands are the most common things people use to stimulate their genitals when they masturbate, but other people enjoy rubbing against stationary objects, like pillows. Some people can masturbate just by rhythmically tightening and loosening their thigh muscles, believe it or not. Whatever works for you is fine, and you shouldn't be afraid to experiment with different things that feel good to you.

As for orgasms being different lengths of time -- my experience is that it depends on the person, and sometimes on the kind of stimulation that person is getting as well.
I have found in my own experience that longer orgasms aren't necessarily more satisfying or better than shorter ones. Short and intense can be just as good as longer ones, but in any case, orgasms are a little like ice cream -- they come in different flavors but they're all pretty tasty.

Don't worry too much about whether you're having the same kinds of experiences as someone else is. Our bodies are all different, and what happens to work for one person won't necessarily work for another. Listen to your body, do what feels good to you, and remember that feeling pleasure is a pretty good sign that you're doing something right.
