Don't know how to masturbate..

So I've seen a ton of posts on here about masturbating.  I decided to try it a few weeks ago, and it felt ok at first.. but nothing really happened. I just got kinda bored after a few minutes. I figured I'd done something wrong and so I tried again a few days later and the same thing happened. I talked to my best friend about it and she just laughed saying "You don't know how to masturbate?!" I decided it didn't matter because I didn't necessarily care all that much. I'm on community again and I see a few posts about how "good" masturbating feels and I really want to know what it feels like. I wouldn't necessarily care about it because when I'm with my boyfriend I don't really need anything else.. but he's been working a lot more, so with AP and work and soccer we don't get to spend as much time with each other anymore. Anyways the point of this whole thing is I need advice on HOW to actually masturbate and get an orgasm without "help" I guess you could say. Thanks in advance 😘💜
