I too bring myself to the point of near climax and slow down. If I did not I think that I'd be done in as little as 1 minute--boring. You can't have that much entertainig imagery going on in that span of time, and I really like visualizing things.<quoted text>
Yes, I know what you mean about a comfy bed. I've actaully recently changed my most common masturbation venue from the shower to the bed mainly because I realized that I can achieve a more intense orgasm while I'm laying down. I like to finger myself to the brink of orgasm, then stop before I "go over the edge" (I guess that's why they calll the technique "edging"), then sartt up again, then stop and start up once more. After several cycles--and when I really HAVE to get out of bed or be late for work, I'll let myslef go over the edge and into a massive orgasm. I found that I really can't get into this in the shower--there it's faster, but lest intense.
That said, I did it in the shower this morning. Somtimes I stand wiith my left hand against the tiled wall and use the fingers on my right hand to get myself off or I sometimes insert the corner of a bar of soap between my labia and rub that up and down eventually putting more pressure on my clit until I come.
You seem to have a bit more talent with things, though. I am not sure that I can get off from a bar of soap. I need wiggles.
