As a girl going through puberty, odds are, you had to find new and exciting ways to touch yourself without the convenience of running to the store and picking up a vibrator. Cue pillow humping.

You’re lying in bed, feeling tingly and horny, and you just don’t know how to find a release.

What is pillow humping?

So what is pillow humping really? How do you pillow hump? Well, this masturbation technique basically involves a woman mounting a pillow and grinding herself to orgasm. Kind of like dry humping without another person there.

FYI, men do it too! Men masturbate with pillows by folding the pillow in half and thrusting their penis inside the fold. Sounds hot, right? *Note the sarcasm* Or by pressing a pillow hard against the bed and thrusting the penis between the pillow and mattress. Soft, squishy goodness!

Why people hump inanimate objects

Strange as it sounds, humping inanimate things usually starts during childhood. Psycologists and parents agree that many children start displaying sexual behavior early. This can manifest itself through simulated intercourse like dry humping/pillow humping, and basically dry humping or grinding against household objects because it is available. Definitely not a snapshot for the photo album!

This is common for children in the 9-12 age range. However, children’s ages vary for discovering their bodies. You’d be surprised to know how many people carry their pillow humping habits into adulthood.

The different ways and methods of pillow humping for girls

No sex toys necessary. If you’re still living under your parent’s roof, or are just too shy to head to a sex shop and buy a sex toy, pillows are a pretty available alternative. Curious to know how to hump your pillows to orgasm? We’re always here to help. Here are the top tips and tricks on how to make yourself cum with your very own pillow. [Read: Sexually frustrated?

1. The triple stack. This pillow humping method involves stacking three pillows one on top of another, and mounting them. Using a rocking motion, grind back and forth until you find a rhythm that gets your motor running. You may feel a bit out of balance at first, but you will feel like you’re lying on top of someone, which is pretty close to the idea of dry humping.

2. The stuffed animal. Sorry, Tigger. Ever wonder why many girls keep stuffed animals on their bed well into our 20’s? We have a disturbing answer: They might be humping the stuffed toys. Stuffed animals, body pillows, or oversized stuffed animals are great for humping because they have different shapes and other features that can spice up a pillow session.

For example, their button nose can be the perfect button for clitoral stimulation. It’s so wrong but so right. And the best part is, as a girl, you can literally buy any stuffed toy keeping the specific shape in mind. And no one but you would have a clue what your real intentions are!

3. The corner of the bed. Some girls like taking a pillow and placing it on the corner of their mattress while pillow humping. This way, they can grind against it while standing/crouching and get more friction from the mattress edge than they would if the pillow were just lying flat.

4. Classic pillow humping. Place your pillow in the middle of your mattress, under your pelvic area, and start grinding with your legs as spread apart as you can get them. [Read: How do you masturbate? 13 different ways to masturbate and learn without trail and error]

5. Fold that fluff. Another popular method of pillow grinding is to fold the pillow in half before mounting. This will make your pillow firmer and easier to get friction from.

6. Ride the pillow. Fold the pillow in half to make it firm. Now squat on it like you’re riding the pillow, and grind against the folded pillow. If you need to visualize it, just imagine bring on top while having sex, but with a pillow instead.

The tips and tricks to make humping a pillow way more pleasurable

Pillow humping is pretty straightforward. Just jump on your pillow, start grinding and get those orgasms on. The key features leading to orgasm are a soft but resistant mound creating friction while conforming to the woman’s body, and tension in the vagina and thighs from all that grinding! That being said, these little extras can take your pillow humping to a whole new level.

#1 Be noisy. On average, women are noisier in bed than men. That doesn’t mean being loud is only for the benefit of a partner’s ears! People make noise during sex because it feels good, not because it sounds good. Unless they’re faking it, which is a whole other story!

Regardless, don’t be afraid to get a little loud during your pillow romping. We promise, it’ll feel that much hotter, and you’ll feel so much hornier too.

#2 Shape your pillow like a body. This sounds super creepy, but it really does make all the difference. While pillows are great *not to mention quiet* sex alternatives, they don’t give you that body-on-body connection you get from a partner. Remedy this by setting up your pillows until they resemble a body shape on your mattress. This allows you to cuddle up against the mound while you grind away and give you a fabulous up close and personal feel like you’re actually having sex with someone under you.

#3 Wear silky panties. When you’re completely aroused, grinding can feel amazing with no clothes on. But, until you hit that point, it may be too much pressure and might bruise your clit. Instead, try grinding with silky panties on. This allows you to slide against the pillow with ease and will be gentler on your sensitive areas.

#4 Take it off. Even if you keep your underwear on, try removing your shirt and bra. Lean forward and grind against your pillow and feel the fabulousness of your breasts bounding against the pillowcase as you move.

#5 Add another element. Stack your pillow under your hips, or wherever is most comfortable. Then, try adding a new element to the mix such as a vibrator or empty shampoo bottle. Place the phallic object underneath the pillow.
Placing it underneath will create an arch for you to grind against and more closely resemble grinding against a penis. You know, except for the whole vibrating thing. [Read: Homemade dildos for when the moment strikes unexpectedly]

#6 Spread your labia. If you’re grinding with panties on, try spreading your labia and setting your vagina against the pillow with it spread. This allows more direct stimulation for the clitoris.
