Around what age do girls begin feeling pleasure 'there'?

When I was a twelve year old boy, I used to rub my penis against my bed and feel pleasure in doing it. But I could not tell what that pleasure really was. At 14, I became aware of my sexuality, began masturbating and knew what that pleasure really was.

I am just curious about what it is like for girls. When do they usually realize that touching or rubbing their vulva feels good? Does it vary greatly among girls or does it usually happen around a certain age?

If any ladies here could share more on this, please.

  • It depends on the girl -- when her cycle's about to start and how developed she is. There's no fixed age. Many girls don't even think to try that until way, way after they've been having periods, etc. I know several girls who have never tried to find out at all, for reasons of their own.
