I was brought up in a very conservative home and went to all girls schools until I was in my second year of college. My two sisters and I had very little contact with boys outside our family and were not allowed to date. Our mother never really talked to us about anything remotely sexual. I was having my period for at least two years before an aunt explained to me what was going on inside my body.
I had no idea masturbation existed.
When I was 17 I went to a dance organized by the church affiliated with my school. It was an 'all-ages' thing but there were some boys there. I recall that a group of boys stood off to one side, watching the girls. Finally one came over and asked my older sister to dance. Soon we were all dancing.
During a slow song the boy I was dancing with pressed himself tight against me. I could feel something in his pants pressing against my belly. I asked what he had in his pocket, he said 'nothing'. I said I could feel something and he blushed and told me it was his penis. I was flabbergasted; I had no idea what was going on as I just did not understand.
That night I asked my sister about what happened. She told me that she was told by another girl that sometimes boys got hard when they danced because we wore perfume.
When I got undressed for bed I stood in front of the mirror and looked at my body. I ran a finger down into my pubic hair, into my crack and onto my clit. I was surprised to discover I was very wet and I rubbed myself to my first orgasm while standing up.
From that night on I began to explore my vagina every night, in the bath tub and in the morning when I awoke. I found that I was almost always horny when I first got up. I even would set my alarm early so I had time to masturbate before getting up for breakfast and school
This was my secret - I told nobody. I thought I was the only one who did this.
After grade 12, I went to a summer boarding school for two months. My room-mate, Karen was a older girl in her late 20s. Our first night together was an eye-opening experience for me. Right from the start, one of her first questions to me was 'are you a virgin?' When she found out that not only was I a virgin; I had never been kissed, never been on a date or anything she took pity on me and promised to get me laid that summer.
Karen never carried out on her plans as I was just not ready but she taught me a lot about sex that I should have known much earlier in life.
We got into a routine where Karen would have a shower each morning and allow me to have a moment alone before the morning class. Sometimes at night I would hear her moan as she masturbated but it was not very often.
I married at 25 and had 3 babies by 28. The marriage did not last and I was single for over 20 years.
During that time I still masturbated each day, usually in the morning.
Now at 52, I have had many, many lovers, including a woman, but still have the most pleasure by myself.
