Female Masturbation/female masturbation

Hi, um I've been masturbating since i was around 11-12 and now I'm about to turn 15. I don't own baby oil and i would like to know if there are any household lubricants i can use that are 100% safe and wont cause any infections.. Also, Is it wrong to masturbate at my age? Everyone makes it seem like it's a bad thing..

Hi Kat. Baby oil is the best and safest so I would suggest you get that. I don't feel comfortable recommending something else because I don't know how it would affect your body. I hope you understand.

For the second part of your questions, yes, it's very normal. Some girls your age masturbate everyday; some only once or twice a week. You probably are masturbating a little more because school is out, and that is very normal as well. As long as you are not hurting yourself or taking aways from your studies, family or friend because of masturbating, then you are good to go.

Masturbation is not a bad thing. Everyone has done it, almost everyone does it but doesn't talk about it. That is where we come in and help you understand it's very normal :)
