hawkhun, congratulations with the new house. Water is a wonderful way to masturbate, but then I do not have to tell you that Smile

As long as the water is clean and not blasting into your vagina (keep it on your clitoris) you will be fine. Also make sure it is not too powerful where it can injure you. Control it through your fingers to lessen the impact and direct it if you need to.

If you get dirty water inside your vagina, you can expect an increase in yeast infections.

Also be careful in the tub (as always). You do not want to slip or hit your head.

My partner used to sit behind me and hold me while the water did it's magic. I still get hot when I see a whirlpool tub and I am sure he wish we still had one.

If you are trying to conceive, DH should limit his time in the tub as the hot water affects his sperm production.

Take care!

That is also a question i was wondering about. i have actually found it to be a little addictive to use the jets to masturbate but wasnt sure if it was alright to do or if it could be harmful. i first started with a shower head and it is effective

Susan, use common sense and you will be safe. Do not blast water inside your vagina and make sure the water is clean, especially in something like a jacuzi where bacteria can breed in the warm water. Make sure the stream is not to powerful where it can tear your rather delicate skin. Make sure you are always safe and cannot slip and fall or bump your head.

Orgasms are indeed addictive. The hormones pumped into your brain and blood stream during an orgasm is good for you and your body will always crave for more. Luckily, orgasms are natural, totally free, fun and not harmful in any way. Just make sure you maintain healthy relationships and live a balanced life. Also remember to masturbate in a more 'natural' way using your fingers to prevent your body from getting used to just the water method.

Happy bath time!

Thank you for your reply! I first learned to masturbate when i was 9 years old and i was 13 an 14 i was doing it up to 5 times a day, and i spent several years thinking that i was weird for doing it and thought i was the only one who was doing it. it is relieving to know that there are people who have the same experiences and have more info on the subject.

Thank you for your reply!

I also never decided to buy a vibrator because i was concerned about being desensitized by it but i never really realized that the shower head could do the same.
Thanks again for the information!

susan862003 - you say it's bad for the water to go into the vagina? Like is it horribly bad?
Like I've been doing that for the past... well.. a long time more than a few years- mind you I was also doing it from the actual tap in the tub- not shower head-
I've never had an infection or anything, but is there any long term effects or something? (Other than having trouble having an orgasm during sex)

Laxgirl, just to make sure we are talking about the same thing, your vagina is inside your body. Everything you can see from the outside is called the vulva. Woman and girls use the wod vagina incorrectly to describe everything down there. Than is not my intent here. If you get water inside your vagina, you have to pull open your lips and force tha water in through your vaginal entrance into your vagina.

Your vagina is a self cleaning organ. It maintains it's own bacterial, yeast and pH balance. When you force water into it, it will disturb this balance. The main result of this can be yeast and/or bacterial infections and should be avoided for this reason. It does not necessarily mean that you will get an infection, just that chance increase considerably.

There should be no effect on your capacity for orgasms, although, if you are using only very directed water streams, you will have to learn to orgasm with the different stimulation from partner sex. Secondary anorgasmia (the ability to orgasm from masturbation but not from intercourse) is far more common than you would think. About 80% of women have problems to orgasm during intercourse. 30% of women will learn the 'secrets' and techniques to orgasm with their partners. About 50% of women never figure this out.

This secondary anorgasmia is not due to masturbation with water, humping and the use of powerful electric massacres to masturbate with. These do however take some effort on the woman's side to learn to orgasm with a partner. Perhaps a two step program, first learning to orgasm with lighter finger touch, and then with their partners.

Hope this explains it a bit better.

Tiger, yes it can. Any highly repetitive way of masturbating will cause neural pathways to get strengthened along the path that the signals travel to your brain. We are not talking about desensitization, we are talking to your body forming a preferred 'memory' of how it orgasms. This is particularly prevalent in women using water, a strong electric vibrator or vibrating machine and women humping things.

Both of these conditions are easy to solve.

* Clitoral desensitization: just stop using whatever you are using that are desensitizing your clitoris. After a few days the full sensation will return.

* Preferred masturbation neural pathways: vary your masturbation techniques. Learn to masturbate in at least one other way. This may be frustrating as you are so used to orgasming the old way. You might have forgotten how to work for your orgasm. There are a number of things needed to orgasm in other ways. Most of them you probably never realized you do because orgasms with water are so easy. These techniques become very important to know about when you are trying to masturbate in another way or when you are trying to orgasm with your partner.

If this is not an issue for you, do not worry about it and keep on enjoying the pleasures of the water stimulation. If it is an issue, you will have to take this step to learn how to masturbate in another way, and then learn how to orgasm with your partner (which takes a whole other skill set).

TigerG, sorry for this long reply, but if the solution was a 140 character tweet, I am sure the billions of women with orgasm issues would have figured it out for themsolves by now.

The first thing is to understand what an orgasm is. It is the release of stress and tension in the muscles in your genital area. So you need to be able to make that stress and tension build in the muscles, before you can orgasm. Signals are carried along neuron pathways to the pleasure centers in your brain by genital stimulation. These signals will get so persistent and overwhelming that your brain will short out and release this tension in an orgasm. Scans on women's brains during orgasm showed that we go into a trance like state for a second or two during orgasm. Our brains shut down and only the pleasure centers are active. During this time, various chemicals and hormones are released into the brain and blood stream to help this feeling of good, relaxing and the bonding impulse. This is why orgasms are so good for both your physical and mental health.

Likely different to the advice generally dished out, you have to concentrate. Relaxing is just the opposite of what you should be doing. If you relax, the tension will not build. If you have strong and very direct stimulation, you can get away with relaxing as the stimulation is absolutely overpowering to that point where you cannot help but concentrate on it. During intercourse or more natural masturbation, this relaxing will not do. So in short, Franky Goes To Hollywood's song 'Relax' is not right.

Since you are already orgasmic, you know the feelings and sensations that you experience on the way to orgasm. It is worth it to concentrate a bit on these feelings when you masturbate next time. Notice how your muscles tense until it becomes almost unbearable, and the the sudden release of the tension in waves of heat, pleasure and contractions.

So when you start to masturbate with your fingers, it is important to realize that your clitoris is the thing that needs your attention. Everything else is there to help but your clitoris is responsible for your orgasms. Your clitoris is not the little tip you can see and feel. That is quite literally just the tip of the 'iceberg'. Your clitoris (or clitoral complex as it is called) consists of two bulbs that runs underneath your labia and back from the clitoris head towards your anus. These bulbs surround your vagina and can be stimulated from inside your vagina. It also contains two legs that run along your pelvic bone, but these are less important for orgasms. So all in all, your clitoris is about 7 inches (18 cm) long. It is not just the little head (glans) that you see and feel.

The head of your clitoris is very sensitive to touch. We have to stroke it through the hood, over the hood, next to it, around it, or if you want to touch it directly, you have to make sure that it is very well lubricated and touch it with only the lightest gentlest touch from the tips of your fingers. At some stage your clitoris will get so sensitive that your body will pull it back to prevent it from getting painfully sensitive. This is normally just before orgasm.

So while you stimulate your clitoris with your fingers, you have to concentrate mentally on the sensations in your body. Reaching orgasm is like climbing up a mountain (the mountain of excitement in this case). You have to keep on going higher and higher. It is ok to reach some level areas or even small valleys where you are just going along or going downhill for a bit. Your orgasm is however at the top of that mountain. If you do not go over the top, you will not reach your orgasm. So you have to concentrate on reaching the to and to keep on climbing and climbing, building and building the tension in your genitals. When you reach the top, you lose control and will start to orgasm. At that stage, and only at that stage you should relax and ride the waves of pleasure all the way to the bottom of the mountain. Just keep on building and building the sensations and feelings until you reach the top. If you give up too soon, you will just
Roll back down the mountain, all frustrated. So do not give up until you reach the top. Keep on stimulating yourself.

It can help to put tension in your legs and thighs. Stiffen the muscles, pump your legs open and closed, lift your body using your feet and upper body. And allow this tension to build in those muscles, while you are concentrating on doing only what makes you climb the mountain higher and higher.

It can be frustrating at first, especially if you know you can orgasm in no time flat using your old techniques. But keep on going. It can help to put on some sexy music, watch a sexy movie, read a romantic story. Just remember not to relax but keep on climbing your orgasm mountain.

Once you can consistently reach orgasm with gentler touch (and it becomes easier and easier as your body develops new neural pathways), you can transfer what you learned to partner sex. Help him to give you oral sex. You now know what works for you and how you need to be touched, lie back and use the same mental concentration techniques with oral sex. Guide him verbally and with your hands while concentrating on the feelings and allowing the tension to build.

During intercourse, not enough stimulation to the clitoris is an issue for 80 % of women. This is just the way our anatomies work with our partners. Normal intercourse does not promote a whole lot of clitoral stimulation. So you (or him) must provide it with your fingers. Find a position where you can get a hand in there and rub the same way you should be used to by now. These positions are doggie, you on your Bach with your legs up from the bed and you on top. It is important to not just lie back and think and orgasm is going to come to you like magic. It is just not going to happen and you are going to be frustrated.

You should tense the muscles in your upper legs and thighs during sex. Arch your body upwards against your feet, pump your legs open and closed. Whatever works. This is where you on top or doggie have an advantage. You are already on your knees with your weight at least partly on your legs providing tension in those muscles. Especially with you on top, you can move your pelvis forwards and backwards, side to side, up and down, in circles, you can lean forwards and backwards. All this will create tension in your legs and genitals. The added advantage is that you control the speed, depth and angle of penetration to suite you. And both you and your partner have easy access to your clitoris and breasts. You can lean forwards and grind down and rub your clitoris on his pelvic bone, forwards and backwards, rather than up or down. You now knows what it takes to keep on climbing that orgasm mountain until you go over the top. So use these skills to make yourself orgasm.

You can also try a more specialized sexual position called coital alignment technique (C.A.T.). this is almost guaranteed to make you orgasm, often very close to the time he orgasms. Use the google to search for information on this technique.

I hope this helps.

What if you just started masturbating in the jet bath but are now getting itchy?? This is happening to me, especially on my period and I'm not sure what it is. It goes away after a day or two but it still irritates me. It is also not and STI because I have only been with one person and so has he and we always use protection. What do you think?

Make sure you angle your body so that the stream is on your clitoris, not blowing inside your vagina. You also have to be sure the water is clean.

I put on a condom before I put it up to the jet! That way when it cumms it is not all in the water

Thanks for thinking about others and keeping the water clean, Wally. Remember to never push your penis into the jets. There is a sexual helth forum for men here: http://ehealthforum.com/health/mens_sexual _health.html
