Learning the right clitoral stimulation techniques is incredibly important if you want powerful, body-shaking orgasms during sex. 

Did you know that the clitoris has 8,000 never endings? So there's a lot you can do to get your body reaching orgasm.

Whether you are masturbating alone or a partner is using these techniques on you, you're going to like them ... a lot. 

Let's get down to it and learn some fun clit stimulation techniques to make masturbating a whole lot more fun!

Solo Clitoral Stimulation Techniques

1. Squeeze your clit.

I can't believe that more people don't know about this clitoral rubbing technique. It's so powerful, despite the fact that it's an indirect stimulation technique.

There are multiple ways to perform it, so I advise that you play around with it to discover the exact things that feel best for you.

The main technique that you are going to be doing is grabbing, squeezing, and moving the folds of skin that cover and are directly around your clitoris so that your clitoris is sandwiched between these folds of skin.

This means that you won't ever be directly touching your clitoris. You'll be doing this with your thumb and forefingers.

When you squeeze these folds of skin between your fingers, you'll be able to feel the pressure it puts on your clitoris. It feels really good!

While keeping the folds of skin firmly between your fingers, start to move your hand from side to side or even up and down. Doing this will feel much, much better!

Remember that different people have different preferences, so make sure to play around with this technique and experiment with squeezing different areas until you find what you prefer.

2. Touch your clit very, very lightly.

This next clitoral stimulation tip is really easy and kind of the opposite of the previous one. When using "The Squeeze" you are going to be using quite a lot of pressure, but Feather Light is completely the opposite.

When using Feather Light, you are going to be using an absolute minimum of pressure on your clitoris, almost to the point where it will feel more like soft vibrations.

To get set up, lie down on your back and rub a small amount of lube or saliva on your clitoris and around it. Next, you are going to bring your finger to the side of your clitoris so that it's just about touching it.

It should feel like a feather is touching the side of it. You shouldn't have your finger covering your entire clitoris. Instead, it should be just touching the side of it.

All you need to do is simply move your finger up and down while keeping in contact with the side of your clitoris. You will only be moving your finger a few millimeters up and down, so you will hardly be moving it at all.

In fact, it will feel more like gentle vibrations more than anything else. While doing this, you will notice the tension building and you may start desiring more pressure.

Don't give in! Keep using only a feather-light touch the entire time. This will help to make the whole experience feel like a really long, extended orgasm.

3. Use a vibrator.

The first two clitoral stimulation techniques should be more than enough to give yourself endless pleasure. But if you are still not fully satisfied, then I highly recommend that you try using a vibrator on your clitoris.

Vibrators come in all shapes and sizes, and some are specially designed to stimulate your clitoris. There are even ones that are hands-free and remote-controlled!

The good thing about these sex toys is that they'll give you a more steady rhythm, and, if needed, more power than your fingers alone give. Always start on the lowest power setting and gradually build up.

Clitoral Stimulation Techniques with a Partner

4. Use tongue

Oral sex can be a huge game-changer when it comes to clitoral stimulation. 

Ask your partner to gently use their tongue to make circles around the clitoris and clitoral hood.

If your partner also has a clitoris, you can do the same for them!

5. Change it up with sex positions.

It's all about angles. Maybe one sex position isn't working for you. 

But there are a bunch of other fun and frisky sex positions for you and your partner to try out. 

The reverse cowgirl position is great to stimulate the clitoris. Straddle your partner, but face away from them instead of toward them.

If your partner also has a clitoris, slide pillows under your partner's pelvis to "ride and glide." Don't forget to tilt their clit toward you so moving your hand and getting access is easy. If your partner has, try vaginal penetration. 

6. Get handsy with it.

Let your partner do the work. Ask them to try the techniques you prefer to try on yourself.

Applying pressure to the clitoris with one finger is totally underrated. Just because it's a little basic doesn't mean you can't be sex-positive about it. 

You know what your clitoris likes better than anyone else. 

Communicate what you like to do when you masturbate with your partner and ask them to do it to you. 

How to Have the Best Clitoral Orgasm

The first thing you need to do is make sure that you are comfortable before trying these clit stimulation techniques. If you are uncomfortable or stressed out about something, then you are going to find it much more difficult to really enjoy these techniques and tips.

Next, you're gonna want to slow down! 

You may be eager to try these clitoris techniques to try to orgasm as quickly as possible — this is perfectly fine. But you'll find that it's far, far more pleasurable to take things slowly, almost to the point that you are teasing yourself.

When you do eventually reach orgasm, you will be glad you took your time!

Find a great, comfortable position. Finding a great position to give yourself the most pleasure possible while masturbating.

Lastly: Use lube! This is not a deal-breaker or something that is mandatory for having a good time, but using a great lubricant like coconut oil when masturbating is going to make for much better orgasms, especially if your vagina has trouble self-lubricating.
