Ladies: Can you climax using only your hands when masturbating by yourself?

Contributor: KinkyKrissy KinkyKrissy
I have a confession to make. I don't think I've ever climaxed without using a vibrator. I've gotten really close just using my hands, but I don't think I've ever actually orgasmed from it. Using a vibrator is a different sensation and with it, I can have multiple g-spot and clitoral orgasms. With my hands I can only get so close. Tips?

I can orgasm with my hands, but it doesn't happen often and it's a lot easier with a vibrator.

Strangely enough, my strongest orgasm are by hand. They're pretty weak with toys. And it doesn't bother me.

I have this problem sometimes, too. No worries

My only suggestion is to try different techniques. For example, it feels much better to me to have a thin layer of cloth between my fingers and myself. Or, I know someone who orgasms by pressing down hard on her clitoris. I'm not sure if you've experimented with things like this. I could be stating the obvious.

Yes but now I find it much easier to just grab a toy. They are so much more exciting and your hand doesn't cramp. I don't use my hand for internal stimulation though, I've never been comfortable feeling the inside of my vagina.....I'm weird I guess?

I have had problems reaching orgasm with both my hand and a vibrator.

Yes, very easily. I can even climax without toys or hands.

Nope, never have. I don't think I ever will, and it doesn't really bother me - I found the answer in toys.

I can but orgasms are 2/10 compared to usual 6/10 in intensity with a vibe on my clit. Curiously enough, if I add a dildo for g-spotting they can get as strong as with a vibrator.

It is much easier for me to climax with a vibrator, but I can bring myself to orgasm with my fingers just takes more time.

I -can- do it. I don't like to though. I much much much prefer vibrators/toys.

I used to be able to for about 20 years. That or oral sex. Something happened when I went into early perimenopause (which sucks, I can assure you) and now I need high power toys, plus oral if possible. (Not at the same time, oral first, then the toy.)

I can, but it's more difficult and less satisfying, so why bother?
Contributor: Nazaress Nazaress
I can but now that I have toys, I prefer not to.
Contributor: ap-the-aper ap-the-aper
I can get myself off with just my fingers, but I have to take my time or it's not worth the effort. I'm usually lazy these days and just use a toy. However, when I'm in the mood to apply myself, I don't regret it.

I don't really have any tips beyond enjoying what sensations you *do* get from that sort of manipulation. I recall someone saying once that the orgasm isn't the be all end all--and focusing too much on that goal can make actually achieving it difficult. *shrugs*

It's much harder to do it with just hands, but I can.
Contributor: Gracie Gracie
I used to be able to, but when I turned 47 I couln't any more. Every now and then I try to see if this has changed, but it hasn't yet.

Nope. I actually just stopped masturbating until I found toys because I could never orgasm with my hands. It got frustrating so I just gave up on it. I've tried again since then and still nothing.
Contributor: Taylor Taylor
I can but it takes me almost an hour. I'm too lazy for that so I almost never masturbate without a toy.
Contributor: Melissa Smith Melissa Smith
Yep, I prefer some assistance, but if I had to I could.
Contributor: yrnw yrnw
not just with my hands, nope. Can't seem to get a good angle.
Someone else's hands'll do just find, but not mine, for some reason....
Contributor: MGDavicnigirl MGDavicnigirl
Yes, but not as strong and it takes forever.
Contributor: ellejay ellejay
I can, yep.
Contributor: nori nori
nope; I've never been able to. (Started using toys at 16; It took until two weeks before my 19th birthday to figure out how to even use the toy to orgasm!)
Contributor: dbm6907 dbm6907
I can, and pretty quick too.
