of the female pelvic area enables straddle masturbation, not uncommonly
involuntary, while bicycling, horse-riding and the like. The visible,
covered and hidden female organs are richly equipped with a high
density and concentration of nerve endings sensitive to physical
stimulation. Pressing them against anything (e. g. a pillow during
pillow-humping, piece of furniture, while pole-dancing, or riding
someone's leg horse) or exerting pressure on them by squeezing thighs
and/or legs double crossing (known as syntribadism, legsqueeze;
Spanish: entrelazando las piernas, cruzando las piernas, apretando los
muslos; French: croiser les jambes, serrer des cuisses) make
possible female masturbation hands free. No fingers or any objects are
needed to syntribate. Erotic
fantasies (day dreams) or any other psychological sexual stimulation
and/or syntribating without noticeable hip movements enable covert
female self-pleasuring possible in public places.

Masturbated in the past year
Masturbated in the past year, USA, 18-60-year-old: men 61 percent, women 38 percent (Das 2007).
Masturbated in the past year, Australia, 16-59-year-old: men 65 percent, women 35 percent (Richters et al. 2003)
Masturbated in the past year, United Kingdom, men 86 percent, women 57 percent (Gerressu et al. 2008).
Masturbated in the past day (either today or yesterday)
Among both males and females, the peak age at reporting having masturbated in the past day (either today or yesterday) was age 18, with 51 percent of boys and 36 percent of girls concurring. After age 18, however, notable drop-offs are evident: 31 percent of 19-year-old boys and 18 percent of 19-year-old girls report masturbating in the past day.
The two most obvious things known about masturbation patterns are its associations with age and sex. Young adult men in their mid-20’s and 30s are the most likely to report masturbation in both the past year and the previous 90 days (Reece et al., 2010; Richters et al., 2003). Rates of masturbation increase during adolescence, peak in young adulthood, and then decrease throughout the rest of the life course. (Regnerus M et al., 2014)
Among 20-24 year olds in the 2009 National Survey of Sexual Health and Behavior, 83 percent of men and 64 percent of women report solo-masturbation in the past year, which increases to 84 percent of men and 72 percent of women ages 25-29, and dips slightly to 80 percent and 63 percent, respectively, among 30-39 year olds (Herbenick et al., 2010a).
95 percent of men and 87 percent of women with at least some graduate education experience an orgasm every time they masturbate, while in comparison only 60 percent of men and 46 percent of women without a high school degree said the same (Laumann et al., 1994).
