As a girl, does masturbation alway have to be fingering yourself or can it be different?

It can be different. Different people enjoy different things when they masturbate. The clitoris is part of a woman’s vulva (her external sex organs), and it’s the only organ in the human body whose only purpose is sexual pleasure. During masturbation, a woman may stimulate all parts of her vulva, or just certain parts of it, including her clitoris, her inner or outer labia, the opening to her vagina, her vagina (fingering), and/or her anus. Many women prefer rubbing near — but not on — the clitoris because direct stimulation can be very intense.

Getting to know more about sexual anatomy may help in understanding masturbation.
