I don't think I've ever really masturbated before and I'd like to try. What are some things I could use at home and is it dangerous?

The best way to introduce yourself to self-pleasuring is to simply use your fingers to stimulate around your clitoris. The first tasks are to learn to be comfortable touching yourself and then to learn your most sensitive areas and how your body is going to respond. Don't worry about getting fancy right now... you can learn about vibrators and dildos later on if you wish. Just start with the basics and enjoy your body.
