Do Women Masturbate As Much As Men?

Nearly all males masturbate daily, or even more frequently, well into their 20s and sometimes far beyond.

This decline is more drastic among females, and more gradual among males.

While females aged 13–17 masturbated almost once a day on average (and almost as often as their male peers), adult women only masturbated 8–9 times a month, compared to the 18–22 among men.

Female masturbation techniques

These include a woman stroking or rubbing her vulva, especially her clitoris, with her index and/or middle fingers. Sometimes one or more fingers may be inserted into her vagina to repeatedly stroke the frontal wall of her vagina where her g-spot is located.

Masturbation aids such as a vibrator, dildo or Ben Wa balls can also be used to stimulate the vagina and clitoris.

Many women caress their breasts or stimulate a nipple with the free hand, if these are receptive areas for sexual stimulation. Anal stimulation is also enjoyed by some.

Lubrication is sometimes used during masturbation, especially when penetration is involved, but this is not universal and many women find their natural lubrication sufficient – some even produce more lubricant alone than with a partner.[citation needed]

Common positions include lying on back or face down, sitting, squatting, kneeling or standing.

In a bath or shower a female may direct tap water at her clitoris and vulva. Read more >>
