“If I masturbate too much will I be unable to get off when a guy goes down on me?” — Solo Satisfier, Baltimore, MD
Unlike guys, the more a girl masturbates the more likely she is to have an orgasm during sex (intercourse or oral). Masturbating might actually help you achieve an orgasm FASTER. The more we know our bodies (and what movements turn us on), the more we’re able to translate that experience in the sack.
The only way masturbating might get in the way of your big O during sex is if you use a vibrator a lot. Your mechanical friend might be the fastest way to climax, but you can’t expect to get off the same way with your partner (unless he has an electric tongue). That’s like driving a Ferrari your whole life and then switching to a Corolla. The latter will get you to town, but it’ll take double the time.
