    Is it normal for a woman in her late 20s in a steady relationship to masturbate often?

    I don’t think you should feel either guilty or dirty about your need to masturbate. You obviously have a powerful libido.


    Question for JulieQuestion:

    I am in a relationship of 10 years and my sex life is very good, which I love, and my partner satisfies me most of the time. However, I can't stop masturbating, sometimes twice a day.

    I sometimes feel guilty and a bit dirty about it and I don't know why, i just want to know, is this normal for a woman in her late 20s - or any age?

    I don’t think you should feel either guilty or dirty about your need to masturbate. You obviously have a powerful libido, and the way I see it is that you’re taking responsibility for your sexual happiness.

    Just because we have a regular sex life with a partner, it doesn't mean we can't give ourselves pleasure as well.

    It’s widely accepted that masturbation is good for you. It’s the most widely practised method of safe sex, and you don’t have to worry about anyone else’s enjoyment. It’s not just about pleasure though; you’re 'in training' - to be a more skilled, aware, responsive lover. If you’re an expert at making yourself climax, you’ll have increased desire (which is in fact what you’re experiencing - the more sex you have, the more you want) and you'll also gain the knowledge to teach your partner what you like best.

    Woody Allen has some wise words on flying solo which always make me smile - “Don’t knock masturbation. It’s sex with someone I love…”

      Not at all dirty and you shouldn't feel guilty; i'm in early 30's and i masturbate at least twice a day if the opportunity is there, i adore coming and I'm with a very sexual partner who also masturbates multiple times a day indeed we use our mutually active sex drives to titliate each other andprovide each other with various tantalising fantasies to masturbate to; of course we are in a long distance realtionship at the moment so mutual masturbations sessions are our way of staying sexually close whilst beign apart.

      Not all partners are this compatable though so whether one shares with ones BF/GF has to be individual but honestly masturbatign is one of the healthiest things we can do , inspite of popular old wives tales on the subject :)

      There's nothing wrong with masturbating whilst being in a relationship, it makes you more sexually aware of your own body. People who dont carry on masturbating (apart from missing out) are at risk of not keeping up with what turns them on. Sometimes its nice to tell your partner that you've found something new you like, and you can only do that if you explore and maturbate yourself.
