    ♫ It feels like the very first time ♫

    We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us the stories of their very first orgasms. Here are some of the sexiest, awkwardest, and most hilarious responses:

    1. She ran up the water bill.

    "I was in the seventh grade and I'd found a book in the library where one girl was telling her sister that she used a removable shower head/the faucet on her 'lady bits,' so I tried it one night. It took forever because I didn't know what I was doing and when it finally happened, I didn't know what it was, just that it felt good. When my parents confronted me about the rising water bill, I didn't masturbate again 'til high school when I discovered porn." —sarahg4109d4626

    2. He went for a ride.

    "First time I whacked it was in the back of the school bus in fourth grade. I was one of the last ones off and I didn't even have the mind to clean up afterwards." —marting15

    3. She used her noodle.

    "It was an accident. I was like 10, riding around my grandma's pool on a pool noodle, using it like a horse. When the orgasm happened it scared me so bad I got out of the pool because I didn't know what happened to me." —meghana405d383b4

    4. It took a pregnancy.

    "Age 20, I was pregnant the first time I had an actual orgasm. My boyfriend freaked out and we thought my water broke (I was about 30 weeks). I called my midwife and everything. She said it was pretty common though for that to happen during pregnancy and I should enjoy the privilege of sex while pregnant." —middleground

    5. There was a pole involved.

    The Lonely Island / Via

    "When I was in preschool, I found that when I climbed the pole on the playground, it 'tickled my tummy' in the most delicious way. Needless to say the pole became my favorite plaything and I headed straight for it daily when recess came around. An assistant noticed one day that I had quite an affinity for the upright piece of metal and after watching me closely for a time, beckoned me down. She asked why I wasn't playing with the other children, so I explained to her that when I went up the pole it made my belly get so tight and ticklish. She said, 'Child, you need to go play Red Rover and don't you go near that pole no more!' It was the first time I ever really felt ashamed, though I didn't know why. Even though I was 4, it was clear to me that I was supposed to be embarrassed by the feeling. Of course I had no idea at the time that what I had been experiencing was an orgasm." —deirdreelizabethm

    6. She stopped caring.

    "I started seeing this guy who I really didn't care too much for, but I was 19 and he was 21 with his own place. One time we were having sex and my complete apathy toward his own release helped me focus on myself and I finally had the big O. I finally understood what everone had been talking about and dumped him a week later! Thank you to the boy that meant nothing because you taught me to worry about myself first." —Stephanie Kay Rindorf, Facebook

    7. Pink Floyd made it happen.

    "Masturbating to Pink Floyd's 'Great Gig in the Sky' and climaxing with the vocals." —hadleye2

    8. He had to pee.

    New Line Cinema / Via

    "I had my first orgasm when I was 6. I was in school, and had to pee, but the teacher didn't allow me. Two periods later, when I finally ran to the toilet, I had nearly finished when I just shuddered and came, luckily, in the urinal." —Anjistho Basu, Facebook

    9. She thought she peed herself.

    NBC / Via

    "I was 13, bored and alone. I honestly thought I had broken myself somehow. Or, at the very least, become suddenly incontinent. I soaked through my underwear, shorts, and the couch cushion I was lying on. I was kind of scared and it took me a couple weeks to try it again." —Michelle Faw, Facebook

    10. She burst out laughing.

    "I was on top and it was so overwhelming I burst out laughing... not the reaction he was expecting." —Jennifer Layman, Facebook

    11. She watched queer porn.

    "Watching queer-friendly porn on my first-ever laptop. No masturbation took place; my body just took me completely by surprise. I didn't know what was happening when I suddenly got all breathless and could hear my heart beating. No shame, but one very shocked (and pleasantly surprised) 17-year-old me!" —lucyjaned

    12. The shower head came into play.

    "I was about 13 or 14. Shower head. Do I need to say more?" —kaa

    13. She had her first orgasm a week ago and cried.

    The CW / Via

    "I'm 24 and had my first orgasm a week ago. I've had so many bad sexual experiences in the past, that it was hard for me to enjoy any sex now. But finally, on my one-and-a-half-year anniversary with my girlfriend, I finally felt what I had been missing out on. My whole body got weak and I just held her against me and cried for like 10 minutes. The only thing I could say was 'thank you.'" —leahw473915e2c

    14. There was an electric toothbrush.

    "The first time I orgasmed was my first time masturbating as well. I did it with an electric toothbrush. All I felt was a burst of energy in my thighs and it lasted 10 seconds. When it happened I didn't even know what it was. I literally had to look up what an orgasm was like because I was so confused." —erinm4985a4459

    15. He did the worm.

    "When I was like 8, I did the worm and also had my first orgasm. I am now 22." —quanh2

    16. She bought a vibrator.

    "My friends talked me into buying a rabbit [vibrator]. I didn't leave my house that entire weekend." —katef4

    17. She had just about given up hope.

    DreamWorks Pictures / Via

    "It was incredibly surprising (and amazing) for me the first time I had one because I had accepted that I would never have one. I've been on antidepressants since I was 12, so I never had the chance. When I was 19, after years of frustration, I was dating a guy who was AMAZING with his hands. I experienced the most wonderful feeling in my life while he used both his hands and mouth on me for about 30 minutes." —carolined4b98da4f8

    18. It involved a vibrating pen.

    Universal Pictures / Via

    "At some point in middle school a friend gave me one of those squiggle pens with a little motor in the top for my birthday. One day I was bored and for some reason thought the pen's vibration might feel nice against my private parts. I was right and remember spending hours in my papasan chair watching The Bachelor with the tiny motor pushed up against the head of my penis. I was truly confused when I had achieved my first orgasm but wanted more. Once I brought the pen in the shower with me and ruined it. I then graduated to a Sonicare toothbrush that caused the same effect, only stronger. It wasn't until eighth grade sex ed that anyone explained what masturbation was and that people typically do it WITH THEIR HANDS, which was such a crazy, foreign concept to me." —roccot2

    19. She got a little high.

    "With my ex-husband after smoking a bowl. It was everything any girl could ever ask for!" —anaschoeneman

    20. The Backstreet Boys may have been a catalyst.

    Disney / Via

    "I was 6 years old and was watching the Backstreet Boys 'Larger Than Life' music video, when I started to feel a tingly sensation in my pants." —tashal2

    21. No one told him about ejaculation.

    Paramount Pictures / Via

    "In eighth grade, some kids at school had told me what masturbation was because I didn't know, but they didn't explain what happens during an orgasm, which I knew nothing about. So during the summer between eighth grade and ninth grade I was home alone one day and I thought I'd explore my sexuality a little (this was before I realized I was gay). I started stroking it and I thought, Huh, this feels good. Next thing I know there's liquid stuff flying out of my penis, all over the keyboard, the desk, the floor. It's probably the biggest load I ever shot. I remember screaming out of sheer terror as it went everywhere and dripped out. I ran to the bathroom to get toilet paper to clean it all up so I didn't have to explain it. I think there still might be some cum stains on that floor because there was so much. After cleaning, I promptly scoured the internet to find out what the fuck just happened to me. But hey, it changed my life for the better." —broadwaypop

    22. She found a fun new hobby.

    "I don't remember much except thinking afterward, Holy shit, new hobby! And that I'd never be productive ever again." —buzzcola
