I'm an 18 year old female and I've experimented with masturbation quite a bit for the past few years. The thing is, I've never found it pleasurable. My body reacts properly. My stomach tightens, I get wet, and my breathing gets heavy.... But what I feel isn't the pleasure everyone seems to feel that makes most girls want to do it all the time.

I do feel an intense sensation, but I'd compare it to being tickled which we all know isn't usually fun. I want to pull my hand, or the vibrator away from my clit rather than keep on going which is troubling to me. This makes it so I never have the desire to masturbate.

I want to enjoy the feeling of masturbation. Everything else works right. Is this how it's supposed to feel for people? I've looked and looked, but have never come across anyone complaining about this issue I am now.

Some help would be greatly appreciated.

I feel bad that this post has sat here for over a month. I just want to say that I have a friend who experienced the same thing... she would be aroused and lubricated and everything but then she couldn't continue stimulation of her clitoris, this is the same for you? I'm not sure if my friend has ever had an orgasm from masturbating like that or not, but I do know that she has reported having an orgasm from vaginal intercourse. Perhaps try using the vibrator inside too? I hope this helps maybe. [Smile]

Dark Horse: Sorry this was missed over. Sometimes when we get a lot of posts things get skipped here or there, and feel free to bump earlier than a month, if you don't get an answer after a couple days it probably got lost in a shuffle somewhere.

Plenty of women find that clitoral stimulation is just something that's too intense. Have you tried stimulating other areas that may be less ofa target stimulation? You can try either rubbing other areas of your vulva, inserting your fingers or a toy into your vagina, etc. Everyone's different so what works for one person may not for another.
