Hi Dr Betty,
As far back as I can remember, I've always masturbated by positioning myself on a corner and letting my weight concentrate on my genitals by lifting my legs from the floor. The intense amount of pressure caused by having my body weight concentrated on my pelvis is the only way I've ever learned to pleasure myself. I've always had issues orgasming, and if I do, I find that they don't often satisfy me fully.
Is it possibly that I've damaged my clitoris from over stimulation? Is there any way to become more orgasmic? I've read somewhere that getting a hitachi magic wand and using it regularly to break up scar tissue helps in regaining sensitivity, is this accurate?
(22 year old female)
To the best of my understanding, the human body has remarkable capabilities of healing if we allow it to take place. A big part of that is our mental attitude. If you trust and believe you can be healed of a bad, indifferent of foolish habit, then the chances are very good that healing will take place.
Due to the extreme sexual repression most have been harmed by, you can train your body to respond to a healthier kind of genital stimulation. The one you are using now gives you a false impression that you're just sitting on your clitoris and not actually touching yourself "down there."
Time to clear out the cobwebs of your childhood trauma whenever or however you got the impression it was NOT OK to touch your magnificent sex organ. All the information you need is on D&R. Let's not assume you have any scar tissue but that you simply need to change your method of masturbation. At 22, I predict you have a lifetime of much happier orgasms ahead of you. Start by using your fingers and gradually experiment with other types of stimulation. I'm enclosing a few links to get you started.
