Hi everyone, thanks for sharing your ideas! I haven't tried humping pillows or furniture yet, but I might after reading of such success with it! My #1 piece of advice is keep trying, you'll find a way eventually if you haven't yet. Sometimes the body just needs training. (I used to think my nipples were a complete waste of time-how wrong I was!)
I was very disappointed to discover that vibrators don't work well for me...if I use them on my clitoris I come very quickly, but then for a few days will feel a little 'pinching' sensation right in the clit just at orgasm, which is a big deterrent. Same with showerheads, as water just does not have the viscosity I require. But I rejoice that so many women out there can find satisfaction there!
Other misc. notes: generally I have found that a little muscle tension can go a long way-I like to spread my legs as wide as possible. And my husband managed to find my G-spot just by rummaging around. He delights in 'beckoning' me to come! If you haven't taught your partner to do this yet, be brave. He/she will love driving you over the edge!
Anyway, to get to the point, I have found that many modern kitchen utensils have fabulous, grippy, textured, 'ergonomic' handles that make terrific dildos. Some are ribbed, some are tapered at the tip but then widen before slimming down to the utensil end. If you're lucky they are long enough that you can wedge the opposite end between your feet or some pillows and hump away. And you can toss them in the dishwasher afterward! I always go to the housewares department with a discerning eye as some of my very best orgasms have happened this way.
Strangely, my best toy came from the handle of a toilet plunger. Before you say ICK, I admit it sounds gross, but believe me, it never made it to the bathroom. It has a clear lucite rod for a handle and the grip end is molded in a series of bulges...the other end is threaded to hold the rubber cup on, which I immediately tossed out...it's very long and easy to use because of that, plus lucite warms up quickly and is easy to wash. I don't use it for penetration so much but I love to lay it flat between my labia (when slippery) and just run it up and down along the groove. Makes me grind my hips uncontrollably!
Cheers, all! I'm so proud of you for exploring your bodies, your own pleasure, and for sharing your wisdom.
