Masturbation and Periods

Unread postby NH » Tue May 26, 2020 11:55 pm

Hi I’m 18 years old and ofc I masturbate! I’m only able to feel it when I stimulate the clit but when I try to finger inside my vagina I can’t feel anything plus I’m a virgin, should I be worried??

Hi NH and welcome to Scarleteen. I moved your comment to its own new post.

When it comes to masturbation (and really, sex in general), there's no how-to manual. There's no specific way to masturbate. You can experiment and explore to see what feels good to you. Here's an article for more information on that: Going Solo: The Basics of Masturbation

Additionally, I want to challenge your concept of virginity. Virginity as it's culturally understood has a heterosexual penis-in-vagina intercourse definition, and we know that there's much more to sex than that. If you're interested in learning more about that, check this out: Magical Cups & Bloody Brides: Virginity in Context
