I HAD A NEUTROGENA VIBRATING FACE WASHING THING
My mom had these "steamy romance" audiobooks and I borrowed her iPod to listen to one. When one of the sex scenes came on I felt tingly and didn't know what was happening really (lol!) but I had watched like 2 porn movies and in them they use vibrators. I had a Neutrogena Wave, which was a vibrating face washing thing, and I turned on the shower, locked the bathroom door and put it on my clit and listened to the sex scene! And I knew I was having an orgasm because the audiobook describes it as "like being in a warm vat of honey" lol!!
I FELT SUPER INEXPERIENCED AND IN THE DARK
It was with my first sexual partner and in my first serious relationship and I felt super inexperienced and in the dark about how to do anything in the bedroom. As someone that shares the same anatomy as me, my ex was able to actually guide me through, giving me tips whilst getting me there (emphasizing the importance of relaxing and not putting pressure on myself). I'm so lucky to have had my first experience with a person that wanted to prioritize my enjoyment, and where we were both comfortable enough to have open communication from the very beginning regarding our sex life.
I THOUGHT I NEEDED THE PENCIL CRAYON TO REPRODUCE THE EXPERIENCE
My first orgasm was when I was 9 years old in my family's diesel engine, very vibrating car. There was a turquoise pencil crayon that had fallen just so, so that the tip was on my clit. It was magic. But because I was a child, I thought I needed the pencil crayon to reproduce the experience. which I did for quite some time.
A LITTLE MORE STIMULATION AND A LOT LESS WORRYING
So I had my first orgasm just a few months ago! I was 23, and was CONVINCED there was something wrong with me. I wasn't able to orgasm on my own or with a partner, and I bought a little bullet vibe a year ago that couldn't get me there either. So I had all but given up when I went into my local sex shop in search of an engagement present for my friends. I saw this rabbit vibe that just demanded my attention, so I impulsively bought it. I went home and started playing with it, and was disappointed when I realized that the rabbit function didn't really work for my anatomy. But the rumbly 'shaft' felt nice, so I placed the toy between my legs, holding it in place with my thighs and began scrolling on Instagram. Honest to dog, 7 seconds later, BOOM. I had my first orgasm. It turns out I need a little more stimulation and lot less worrying about it to reach orgasm. Now, just a few months later, I'm experimenting with masturbating different ways and trying to get there with just my hands or with my partner's help. It's awesome! I was so thrilled when it finally happened. I wasn't broken like I thought. Thank you for opening up this conversation!
I WENT ON MY FIRST-EVER TINDER DATE
I was 20, new to NYC and new to Tinder and casual dating. I went to meet my first-ever Tinder date in Williamsburg and was so nervous that I decided to ditch and stand him up. As I turned to leave where I was waiting for him, I ran right into him and off we went. The date went amazing, he took me back to his apartment and I had the best sex I ever had in my life. He asked me if I ever squirted...I had never even orgasmed during sex! He proceeded to, well...find my g-spot that night! We went on to date for a few more months and then I deleted Tinder because I knew no other first Tinder date story would ever compare.
I FELT LIKE SOMEBODY INJECTED ME WITH A CALM HAPPINESS
My first orgasm was when I was about 13, when I figured out that I really liked girls. I watched that scene from The Shining with the woman in the shower's silhouette over and over again, and I was like humping my pillow. It was pretty magical, I felt like somebody injected me with a calm happiness and it kinda flooded my whole body.
EXACTLY DURING THE GUITAR SOLO
I have been masturbating profusely since I was six, but I really understood the purpose of it after a sex ed class at school when I was 12. I remember waiting until my mom wasn't at home, putting on my favorite song at the moment, "Shine On You Crazy Diamond" by Pink Floyd. My idea was to have an orgasm exactly during the guitar solo. I had a really good time.
IT WAS BLINDINGLY BLISSFUL
My first orgasm was with my first love. We both were young and had both taken each other's virginity. We were learning together and exploring our bodies, completely free to explore. I came on top, riding him. The orgasm literally rocked my body from head to toe. It started in my feet and rolled up my body. I was sweating and shaking, my eyes got teary...it was blindingly blissful.
I JUST REMEMBER SOMETHING HOT BUILDING INSIDE ME
My first orgasm was accidental. I was ten years old and messing around with my mom’s “back massager” (or so she called it). I wasn’t even thinking “Hmmm let’s see what happens if I put it here.” I just remember something something hot building inside me and then I was blown away. I didn’t even know it was an orgasm at first, it was an incredible sensation that I wanted more of. And then in Junior High I discovered our detachable shower head. Needless to say I showered every day after that.
Seriously, those were amazing! Thank you again so much for opening up and sharing. If you want to share your first in the comments below please do!
