Masturbation techniques for qualitative solo sessions...

Masturbation, and our masturbation techniques are not common topics of discussion. However, masturbation is actually good for the health. And yet it’s something that most of us do but rarely talk about.  Interestingly, when we do, we realise every one of us has her own technique(s). This depends on our sensitivity, the area we find erogenous and the type of stimulation we enjoy.

All these can actually change from one day to the other, so any masturbation session is an opportunity to try out new techniques. 

Tease Yourself

If you’ve ever tried it with a partner, or a partner has tried it on you, you may have noticed how deliciously frustrating the stimulation of non-genital zones can be. Teasing yourself everywhere, except where you most want to be touched…

Neck, butt cheeks, inner thighs, breast, …. With the tip of your fingers, your whole hand, or a soft object like a feather or a tongue vibrator, wander and linger on your body pleasure spots, nearing the vulva, yet never reaching it. It will build up excitement, allow you to fully indulge in the pleasure of the touch, and possibly change completely your experience of sex, as this is not orgasm-focused. You might still end up climaxing, but that’s just the cherry at the top of the sundae.

 

Full Vulva Massage

Often mistaken with the vagina, the vulva is actually the external part of female genitalia. It encompasses the pubis, the clitoral glans, and the labia majora and minora that surround the urethral opening and the vaginal entrance. The clitoris glans is a popular pick for self-pleasure, but the labia are actually super sensitive to touch and become swollen during arousal. The vaginal opening is also very erogenous and worth stimulating to enhance the sensations.

Using the palm of the hand, a cushion, or a vulva vibrator, applying a soft pressure on the whole vulva. Try various pressures, and rhythms to explore what feels best for you. In parallel, you can use your other hand to orbit around the vaginal entrance and give yourself a very unique experience.

 

Clitero-centric Masturbation

Let’s be honest, the clitoris, or more exactly the clitoris glans, is often the star of our sexy me-time. For good reasons: it is the most sensitive organ we have, its sole purpose is to give us pleasure, AND it can go for several rounds in a row. Clitoris-havers are truly blessed humans, and we owe it to ourselves to make the most out of it.

A popular masturbation technique is to trace a circle or figure of eight around the clitoris’ glans using varying degrees of pressure, speed, and width. You can use one or two fingers, a rounded object or a bullet vibrator. Some of us are too sensitive on the clitoral glans. Adding a sheet, a duvet or a cushion in-between can help enjoy clitoral stimulation without any discomfort.

 

Get on Top

If you like to have sex while being on top, why not try it as well for your solo session? Furniture can make a great sex toy! Lay a towel over the arm of a chair and straddle it, moving your hips back and forth. The constant pressure and the grinding motion will combine to make for some sensational self-satisfaction.

Sensual products for pleasure

Add Good Vibes

Vibrators have gone mainstream, and they now come in beautiful shapes and designs, that actually please women (and not only for you know what!). They can provide different types of stimulation: external/internal, vibration/thrusting/suction, and use different types of texture: hard plastic, glass, silicone, soft silicone or foam…

Obviously, because they vibrate, they provide a type of sensations very different from masturbation techniques using your own hands or still objects. They often come with speeds and modes to experiment with and build excitement and pleasure. They’re also great if you feel lazy and want your vibrating friend to do the “heavy lifting” for you…

Buying a vibrator is a very personal choice, and to find one that fits you best, we recommend you focus on your likes and desires, rather than following popular opinion. In sex, abiding to social standards has long proven to be highly unsatisfying. Go with yourself. All our tips here.

 

Try G-spot Stimulation

If you’re going to use a vibrator internally to masturbate, why not use one which will help you stimulate your G-Spot? Situated a couple of inches up on the front wall of your vagina, the G-Spot is a small area which feels slightly more solid and textured than the rest.

Some vibrators are slightly curved, so when they are inserted they are already pointing in the right direction. It is thought to be an area where the internal structure of the clitoris touches the vagina’s front wall. As you stimulate your clitoris, it swells as it is made of erectile tissues. So, before inserting your G-spot vibrator into your vagina, or during insertion, play with your clitoris so you stimulate it from both ends…

Experiment with speeds and rhythms until you find what works best for you.

 

Experiment With Positions

Solo sex is really just like couple sex. Who says you have to do it lying down?

Try it standing, kneeling, lying on your front or in the shower (talking of showers, a detachable shower head makes a great vibe!) Don’t just use a vibrator on your vagina – try stimulating your nipples, or simply running it slowly all over your body to wake up the nerve endings.

Trying out different positions is a masturbation technique we often overlook. Yet, it holds delicious rewards

 

Lubing Up

No matter how much you think you don’t need lube for masturbation, once you try it you’ll never go back! The texture of lube ensures a smooth, gliding action and minimises friction, which can lead to your clitoris becoming too sensitive too soon. You can also use lubricant with your vibrator. Careful: don’t use silicone lubricant with silicone vibrators. The safest is to use water-based lubes. They’re also easier for your body to wash-off.

 

All these techniques are only meant as suggestions. They may or may not work for you, or work for you one day and not the next. That’s all perfectly normal. Simply experiment and take the time to get to know yourself!
