Water masturbation is the practice of sexually stimulating the genitals with water. People can use water masturbation to stimulate any part of their genitals, including the clitoris, the vagina, the testicles, and the penis.
Some people also stimulate their anus and perineum during water masturbation. Water masturbation can involve only water or a combination of water with manual stimulation or stimulation from sex toys. People can enjoy water masturbation on their own or with their partners.
Anecdotal evidence suggests that women engage in water masturbation more commonly than men. Historically, women diagnosed with hysteria were prescribed time in special shower rooms within sanatoriums for special “hydrotherapy” to treat their perceived affliction. This treatment was not too dissimilar from the water masturbation that is so common today.
Many people discover water masturbation as children. Many continue this kind of self-pleasure through their adult lives. While water masturbation is stimulating, the presence of water can also make it feel relaxing and soothing. People who love it say the orgasms they have through water masturbation are like no other.
