Megha had no idea how women get to an orgasm. She turned to her friend Vinita who taught her the ‘touchy touchy’. Megha tells Love Matters’ writer Arpit Chikkara how she learnt to ‘help herself’ with the new trick and a dose of sexy imagination!
I never understood how actresses start screaming and moaning during the act in the movies. What do women have to do to get to such a state of pleasure?! Well in the film they are just acting, but there must be something that helps one in real life.
It was only when *Vinita, my classmate in college, told me about ‘touchy touchy’ that I gave a thought of trying it myself. So I began stroking the insides of my vagina, reaching up to my clitoris. But I found myself rubbing it continuously for 20 minutes – my fingers and forearms were tired but nothing happened. I was hoping for at least one loud moan, which never came.
Next day Vinita asked me to try fingering and avoid stimulating the clitoris. In one week, I discovered there were two ways of ‘touchy touchy’, inserting the finger into the vaginal hole or massaging the clitoris.
I tried the former and it worked. But unlike what I had seen in movies, my orgasm that day lacked any sound. For that matter, I have never had any moany orgasms at all. That one was silent and only lasted for two or three seconds wherein my breath was lost and my thighs were tightly wrapped around my privates as if they’re trying to hug each other.
Vinita told me different things work for different women. She also advised me to watch porn while masturbating, but it is hard to concentrate on my body when I have a phone in my left hand while the right one is busy down under.
Moreover, living in a home with a homemaker mother in the adjacent room and a younger brother in another, I don’t have the time and privacy to watch porn, let alone masturbating simultaneously.
I satisfy my physical urges when I bathe and after doing it for more than six months, the duration in which I reach orgasm has now reduced from ten minutes to three or four. Vinita does it in her hostel room on her bed, after plugging in her earphones because she lives alone.
One day I took my phone to the toilet to watch porn, but it was way less engaging than my own imagination. I love to picture myself having sex with someone, who doesn’t know about my intentions. It is so much fun.
It’s been an amazing past few months since I tried the ‘touchy touchy’. We have a message written on the walls of our college canteen -“Help Yourself” and when I applied that to my genitals, I experienced this amazing sense of power where my pleasure is on my fingertips. Whenever Vinita and I look at that board, we laugh at each other and say ‘touchy touchy’ with a wink.
