I am a female director of erotica, who has interviewed hundreds of women (I lost count after 500) in depth about their actual sexual habits, preferences, and fantasies. I have filmed thousands of videos on how women make themselves orgasm when no one is watching (largely for adult sites Yanks and YanksVR). They can get pretty creative.
Here are 10 methods of female masturbation you may not have heard of:
1. Rubbing on tight pants seam, squeezing legs together
This is a rather discreet way some women get off, totally in public. Places such as a long line, standing relatively still, with just tiny movements of their legs and hips with clitoral pressure against the seam of their pants.
2. Forearm/fist grinding
Generally this seems to involve sitting upright and pressing their body weight into their forearm, or laying down on their stomach, grinding into their fist. Fairly still outwardly, but quite a workout with lots of muscle tension.
3. Water pressure
This goes beyond the trusty ‘ol showerhead (which is very popular in itself). Bathtub faucets and jacuzzi jets are also favorite ways to get off for some women. Whether it be discreetly in a hotub surrounded by people or in the privacy of their own bathroom, water pressure is a very prevalent way that women relieve their own built up “pressure”.
4. Power of the mind
Some women actually get off by the power of their own minds. They can actually orgasm by focusing on feelings of arousal and breathing deeply- and not actually touching themselves at all.
5. Crossed leg seating position, grinding on heels
A way that many women have discovered sexual pleasure seems to be inadvertently grinding on things- like when sitting cross legged and rocking back and forth on the heel of their foot.
6. Household objects for insertion
There are a lot of objects found around a home that can work as a dildo or penetrative device. Personally, I have shot a wide variety of things that models enjoy and have brought to shoots. Some of these are: wooden spoon, whisk, can opener (2 handles, DP style), markers, vegetables and fruits, bottles, lipstick, mascara, a (dulled) knife (I don’t encourage anyone to try that one)…
7. Electric toothbrush
I have shot multiple models with electric toothbrushes. One even had burned the bristles off of hers so they’d be out of the way! Generally it seems that when women use their toothbrushes to masturbate, they don’t continue to use them for their mouths. It becomes a cheap sex toy that they keep re-buying when it dies. Alternatively, I’ve also heard a model tell a story about using her family’s spendier electric toothbrush and just switching out the heads.
Sometimes with Ben Wa balls inside, sometimes just contracting pelvic muscles til orgasm. When models have brought the balls they are generally pretty excited about them, and spreading the good word on how amazing they are.
9. Humping soft things
Couches, beds, blankets, plush stuffed animals, pillows… soft object humping seems to be about the friction, positioning, comfort and convenience.
10. Humping hard furniture
Sinks, counters, tables, barstools… are a few scenes that I’ve shot with humping. When it comes to humping hard furniture, it seems to be about the right shape, positioning, and using their whole body- things can get pretty sweaty. When it comes to picking spots, I’ve seen models scan rooms and feel up different corners and edges to find something just right.
These less-heard-of methods came about organically, in an accidental (or otherwise) “Aha!” moment. Experimentation is great, as is losing shame about experiencing pleasure from methods that might seem unconventional. I assure you- whatever gets you off, is likely more common than you think.
