Masterbating - ONLY GIRLS?!

Question: Masterbating - ONLY GIRLS.?
i justed started yesterday, and im i want to do it again soon, but im scared to break my hymen!Health Question & Answer

Your hymen is a thin membrane that partially covers the outer entrance to your vagina, usually in a half-moon shape. There is enough of a hole there for you to comfortably fit a finger or two, a tampon, or the doctor to fit a speculum without tearing your hymen.

When a penis or another large object is inserted, your hymen will stretch around it and may tear in the process. Not all women tear their hymens, though. It is generally stretched/worn away over time through physical activity and time in general -- I never inserted anything inside of myself, tampons and fingers included, until I was 21 because of a medical/emotional condition I suffered... yet when my boyfriend and I had sex for the first time a few months later my hymen did not tear and it wasn't even very painful, I think because I'd already stretched it enough.

You probably won't break your hymen unless you try inserting large objects. So don't worry... and if you do, it doesn't mean you're not a virgin. Virginity has to do with a penis entering the vagina, not the hymen. It's more of a state of mind/being than anything medical.Health Question & Answer

If you used a dildo, and fully penetrated, and didn't feel any pain, the chances are your hymen is already gone - this does NOT mean you have lost your virginity, your virginity only goes when you have sex with another person.

Instead of going inside, you could try clitoral stimulation instead, that way you won't need to go near your hymen if you want to keep it intact. Your clitoris is right above your urethra, where urine comes out when you pee. You'll need to use a little lubrication, and make sure you pee afterwards - any bacteria you might have on your hands may work its way up your urethra and into your bladder, causing a little bladder or even kidney infection or a touch of cystitis. Believe it or not, this was actually called the 'bride's disease'!

Hygiene is very important in masturbation and sex in general. As is discretion .....!Health Question & Answer

Don't worry about it, the hymen can break through all sorts of activities such as wearing tampons, even horse riding. Don't worry about the hymen being intact, that is a very outdated concept, and it is generally accepted that most girls will be broken before they lose their virginity.Health Question & Answer

It's okay! I didn't have mine anymore when I lost my virginity, and have no ideal why. It may be gone already, anyhow. But the best masturbation will be stimulation of the clitoris. It is the best! I wish I had known this when I was a virgin...I might still be one!Health Question & Answer
