I got so much nice feedback from my blog post yesterday that I decided to write a follow up today, a sort of part 2 about my mirror use. My teen years were spent exploring the masturbatory possibilities of the mirror. The make up mirror I used had two sides, one regular and the other magnifying. I discovered I could make my vulva look extra big with the magnifying side, and that was my preferred side to use while I stimulated myself.
A typical session with the make up mirror would begin with me doing a "split beaver" to check out my anatomy. With the mirror between my legs, I would spread my labia. Then, keeping the lips open, I would pull everything upwards a bit to unhood the clitoris. I would treat myself to the sight of the outward and upward opening of my vulva for a while, taking in the visuals of my body's arousal. From there on out, it would be foreplay, then masturbation in earnest, then orgasm. My "Masturbation With Mirror" video is a fairly straightforward portrayal of what happens when I'm approaching orgasm during one of these sessions.
While still a teen, I discovered the pleasures of the full-length mirror, too. I had a purple vinyl "beanbag chair," one of those round blob-like things filled with styrofoam beads. For a full-body view of myself masturbating, I would pull the beanbag chair up to the full-length mirror in my bedroom, make myself comfortable in it, and then get busy. I tried to wipe off the vaginal fluids from the chair as soon as I was finished, but this was the age when I started having orgasms strong enough to knock me out and put me to sleep. Most of the time, I just crawled into bed afterwards to take a nap. If my vaginal juices dried before I could clean up after myself, they would leave a tell-tale chalky white stain on the purple vinyl of the chair and need some extra scrubbing.
There was also what I called the "double mirror technique" if I couldn't decide whether I wanted a full-body view or a gynecological view that day. I would get into place as with my full-length mirror method, but I would bring the make up mirror with me and place it on the carpet beside me. I would then alternate between watching my full body and picking up the make up mirror to watch the close up. It was nice to have it all, the full view of a masturbating girl and the vulva-only view for the moments when I wanted something more explicit.
