I've never had sex before, but I'm very interested in starting. How does masturbation affect a person's sex life, and how exactly is it performed?

Masturbation is a very normal and natural way for a woman to learn about her sexual response, to experience pleasure and to relieve her sexual tension though a very enjoyable orgasm. It is a positive experience for women, especially if they have no current partner. Women learn to masturbate in several ways. Some like using a vibrator and others have discovered creative ways to use water sprays. Some rub on a cushion, but most use their fingers. It should be remembered by a woman who is pleasuring herself, as well as a partner who is pleasuring her, that the most sensitive area is the clitoris, not the vagina, if orgasm is desired.
