Female Masturbation/Can't reach an orgasm


Question
QUESTION: This is a bit cringy but here goes. I've been masturbating for around 6-7 years now and not once have I had an orgasm or been close (I don't think anyway) I never feel satisfied once I stop which is very frustrating. I get horny quite easily if I'm honest (like now for example my clits throbbing through just telling you this!). When I masturbate I normally rub my clit until my legs start shaking and my body bucks. I've been told before that this is an orgasm but I don't believe it is because its not pleasurable. I don't feel pleasure when I rub my clit either.
Please help I'm desperate

ANSWER: Hi B!
I have some questions for you so I can better understand.
How old are you? Do you get wet when you masturbate? Have you ever received pleasure from another guy or girl? I{f so, how did that feel?

QUESTION: Thanks for replying. I'm 17. Yeah I do get wet and try using that to help.  No I've never received pleasure from anyone  else

Answer
Hmmm, what methods of masturbation have you tried? You should experiment and see what your body  likes. Hump a pillow, try inserting a clear, smooth object like a carrot or hairbrush handle. Last but not least, experiment with another person, a boy or girl you trust. Sometimes having that different hand on you can make all the  difference
Good luck!
