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.
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.
