A he up that this article is about masturbation, so if that's not something you want to read about right now, maybe check out some of our other sex and relationships stories. If that seems like a forward question, you might have missed our article about "the masturbation gap" and it's probably a good place to start. What it will tell you is that the stats are clear. There's plenty of jacking off and not enough jilling off.
When it comes to sexual self-pleasure, women are missing out compared to men. Australian research from surveying 20, men and women found 72 per cent of men reported they had masturbated in the past year, compared to 42 per cent of women. But those are just s. When it comes to why or how we do or don't pleasure ourselves, personal stories can tell a lot more.
And given there is a lack of talk about women's bodies and pleasure, according to the experts I spoke to, we felt it would be remiss of us not to share some of these experiences. They might make you cringe or laugh or relate. And they might help break down a taboo that can stop us knowing and enjoying our own bodies. I did it once with a hairbrush when I was about But I only did it because I thought we sort of had to. I usually watch porn when I start — whatever seems most appealing from the front of a porn site. I have a few toys that I use from time to time — generally just a vibrator.
As a teenager I'd do it daily, but now I do it two to three times a week. It's for a variety of reasons: when I can't sleep, when I'm stressed, or sometimes when I am bored. Masturbating has helped me to feel comfortable in my own skin, and to know what I like, which helps my relationships with both male and female partners. In my last female relationship, she watched me masturbate to learn how I liked to be touched, and vice versa, as we had quite different preferences.
In my current relationship, he really enjoys watching me masturbate, and I'll often do it during sex to enhance my experience. After a recommendation from a friend, I purchased a particular vibrator just over a year ago and I haven't 'rubbed one out' since then. I actually think it has ruined me. Not only have I no desire to rub one out ever again, but no man has made me come since then. I was sexually abused as child by an uncle, and have had various unwanted sexual experiences that have informed the ways I interact with my body, specifically masturbation.
I think also being fat has definitely informed my self-pleasure journey as well. Both of those things for a long while even while masturbating made me feel like I was disconnected from sex. Things are better now, in all honesty because at the age of 29 after a break-up I slept with a lot of people, almost in a way to reclaim my sexuality and prove to myself that I was a sexual being.
When something is stolen from you, in this case my innocence, you almost spend your adult life in constant pursuit of what it was that was taken. I never really thought about pleasuring myself until a guy asked me what I liked. I was probably 20 years old. I spent so long trying to get laid that I kind of didn't realise I could pleasure myself. I guess that says a lot about how we come to learn about our bodies and what they deserve — or what we think they do.
Since I've been single this time around, I've been experimenting with how I masturbate. And part of that experiment has been to go for weeks at a time without doing it. There are lots of other ways to feel sexual that aren't reaching climax. Sometimes I'll just be naked at home or touch myself very gently without coming, and it is very pleasurable. I don't have it totally figured out, but I know being more thoughtful about when I masturbate, and broadening what that actually is, has improved my sex life. When I'm more relaxed and I'm not trying to get off, I have a really connected, sensual experience and usually end up coming anyway.
And being really calm and less destination-driven with masturbation helps that. I started masturbating when I was about 11 and had my first orgasm within the first few explorations. I then masturbated often throughout adolescence. As a result, I knew my body well by the time I first had partner sex. So, with my early sexual partners I was already able to be clear that I expected clitoral stimulation before and during penetration, knowing that was the only way I would climax.
Coming from an immigrant family, sex in itself isn't something we talk about openly. I'm sure my parents would like to think I'm still a virgin. I remember I was in a long-term relationship in my early 20s. My boyfriend at the time was in the Defence Force and would go away a lot. He bought me a vibrator as a joke but also not a joke one time before he went away for three months. I hid it in my top draw underneath all my undies so no-one could find it.
I thought my mum was way beyond the point of where she would go through my room looking for evidence of drugs and reading my diary. I was in my early 20s! But I was wrong. One day I came home to use my trusty vibrator and I noticed it was gone from its safe spot.
I knew straight away that my mum would have thrown it out. I told my two older sisters the next day and they couldn't stop laughing. One of them said, 'Are you going to ask her where it is? What am I gonna say? Get our newsletter for the best of ABC Everyday each week. Somehow it helps me unblock feelings of desire and then I am ready to do stuff. Sometimes it acts as an emotional unblocker. In regards to self-pleasure, I the ranks of not being interested. I feel like we may be the minority. I have tried it at various ages, starting from about the age of 16, trying it every few years until about I actually thought for many years that I was abnormal for not enjoying it.
If I'm honest, I think this played a part in me also not really enjoying sex well, certainly not to the extent of my friends for a of years, until I learnt to be more assertive in bed to discover what I did and didn't like. I also now know that the emotional connection is key for me for there to be physical pleasure. I remember experiencing my first sexual urges around 11 years old when I discovered an erotic magazine in my mum's drawer. My prudishness faded a bit towards the end of my teens, but due to some unsatisfying teenage experiences with guys, I convinced myself that it probably wouldn't even feel that good for me anyway.
I'd never even tried, but just thought it wasn't for me. When I was about 19, a male friend who was probably flirting with me, in hindsight suggested that I just try it out and see. So, I did. The first time I masturbated wasn't in a particularly sexy setting — in fact, from memory I was watching The Little Mermaid and obviously, aged 19, I found it really boring, so I got distracted. It wasn't mind-blowing because I had no idea WTF I was doing, but I think year-old me summed it up best in an angst-ridden diary entry: "Last night I did something that I never thought I would, out of boredom and loneliness and pure curiosity.
I feel OK about it. Kind of rebellious. But it was purely for me, nobody else. I should do more of these things. I'm pretty open about it with my partner and find talking about it afterwards turns us both on. I don't remember how young I was when I started masturbating, but I remember having this really big sense that it was something I wasn't allowed to do. From memory we had sex education in Year 2, 5 and 7.
Masturbation was probably brought up in Year 5 and 7, and both times they said it was normal, everyone does it — boys and girls. But it was like being told that it's OK to wet your bed. In my peer group it was something we spoke about as being gross and for boys to do, not girls. But now that I am a bit more experienced and confident sexually, I find the majority of it doesn't really cater to me. Most lesbian porn is created for men, and the actors do what a man would like to watch women doing. But, speaking generally, it's not reflective of most lesbian sex acts and it doesn't show you something most women would find pleasurable.
It's more the lead-up to the act and the particular kink that I'm interested in reading about.
