Hi I am a female, 21 years old. I am confused. I usually lay down and cross my legs together and make an up and down force that in turn gives pleasure to my clirotis. My question is can I lose my virginity by doing this? Can it break my hymen? Is this considered masturbation? Please answer me. I am so worried. Please.
"Virginity" is not having sex and usually refers to the breaking of the hymen, with a penis going inside the vagina. Stimulating your clitoris will not harm your hymen, which is inside your vagina. Giving yourself sexual pleasure is sometimes called masturbation.
