So should I stop masturbating right away?

However, it’s your personal decision what you want to do down there. If you are going to masturbate, it’s just about being careful and being clean. It’s the same thing with any sort of sexual act, or even any activity in life, really.

How can I ruin/injure my vag while masturbating?

There are a number of things that can potentially go wrong and they all depend on the things that you’re using to masturbate if any. For example, you could ruin your vag by masturbating with long fingernails. You could become a bit too aggressive with a dildo and cause a bit of chaffing down there. Or you could just stick it in at the wrong angle and cause some discomfort.

So, how do I avoid it?

One of the simplest ways to avoid ruining your vag is to take things slow until you’re comfortable with your body and you have a greater idea of your limits. There’s no need to do things at a super fast pace. Slow can be just as pleasurable.

Sex toys?

Start off small and you can work your way up. And don’t forget about lube. It can make things a lot more comfortable for you. And remember to never try to force something all up in there because that will never feel comfortable.

Are all injuries permanent?

If you’re feeling a bit tender down there, it will probably go away in a few days. Same goes if you cut or bruise yourself. Just note that it’s important to keep the area clean and allow it to breathe so it can heal properly.
