Losing Your Virginity/masturbation and the hymen


I wish to know if masturbating of the vagina will lead to the hymen being broken.  Does masturbating of the clitoris pose such a danger?

Masturbating internally (in the vagina) with fingers or objects tends to destroy the hymen.  Females who are concerned about keeping their hymens intact are better off masturbating externally, by stimulating the clitoris.  Masturbating the clitoris does not affect the hymen.
