Question

I’m 25 years old woman who enjoys masturbating more than real sex. I can tell my boyfriend is good in bed and I think he is going to leave me because I don’t reach orgasm. -ANONYMOUS, TEMBISA

Answer

Some women enjoy masturbating over real sex because they are able to give themselves orgasms. However, masturbating should not prevent you from being sexual with your partner. If you do not reach an orgasm when you are being sexual with him, teach him what you like and what you don’t like in bed and how to pleasure you. A Superdrug study revealed that almost 24% of women say they prefer masturbating to sex with an intimate partner.
