I have been masturbating in various ways since I was young. I began by rubbing myself against the corner of my bed and lifting my legs in the air to increase the pressure on my pussy. After being caught by my mother, I moved to rubbing on the arm of the couch in a spare bedroom, and remember having many dry orgasms there. I'm not sure what the name for that method would be, as it was not exactly humping, as I didn't rub my clit against anything directly. It was more like just putting a lot of pressure on the outside of my pussy, which in turn stimulated my clit.
I used the couch for many years, and was not able to successfully bring myself to orgasm any other way until my mid-teens. I eventually learned how to cum by vigorously rubbing my clit with either my finger or a vibrator, and that is my preferred method to this day. My partner and I have not yet gone 'all the way' but we have masturbated each other many times, and as good as it feels to have someone else's hand in such a sensitive place, I think I have always been too tense to let her bring me to orgasm, as I always have to finish it myself. Then again, I have not been able to make her cum yet either.
My clit is hard to stimulate; I have to rub my finger in a certain motion around a certain area-I cannot cum from any other stimulation-penetration, etc. I typically masturbate once a day, sometimes less, sometimes more-depending on if I have time, and how horny I am! I have never been one to moan until my first time masturbating with my partner. Now I make soft noises whenever I play with myself but never loud enough to disturb any neighbors!
Well, writing this has got me feeling quite horny and wet, so I think I will go take care of some business now!
Enjoy and happy masturbating
