A month in the masturbation life of Anya, a 23-year-old pansexual from the UK - who proves that our surroundings can really impact our mood for self-pleasure.

What do you call masturbation? Wank.
How would you describe your libido atm? Suuuuuper high! (Yay)
Growing up, what kind of convos did you have about sex? I grew up in a religious family, so conversations were never based on pleasure or fun but on abstaining. The sole aim was to avoid getting pregnant as a person with a womb. I taught myself through porn and strange school rumors and just trying things; how to orgasm and how to have fun and be safe and loving.
At what age do you first remember masturbating? 14
Anya's masturbation diary.
I started traveling in the first week, so I was abruptly away from my partner. Leaving them so suddenly and being in a new place where I needed to keep my wits about me meant I didn’t feel horny much at all.
The second week of being away from my partner and having such different schedules took a toll on how we communicated. I felt distracted and distant, so I didn’t feel horny or interested in masturbating much at all.
I was in a much sunnier, peaceful place where I felt relaxed and freeee! Running around in the Sun, not wearing much, and just playing in the grass and sand released anxieties and helped me to be patient with my partner.
All this together meant I was feeling frisky again; woohoo! Wanked a fair amount and sent some gorgeous nudes to my gorgeous partner!!!
TONS OF PHONES SEX YES PLS! Sexy-tanned nudes in the sun and beautiful scenery. I felt so sexy and desired and just like hot to myself and in tune with my body. Lots of solo wanks and real-time phone sex with my partner.
Masturbation diaries by the Smile Makers' community are here to talk about what we rarely talk about... how we masturbate! We hope to inspire and prove that each and every one of us is writing our very own sexual story. We also adore that it's a great time to reflect on our monthly pleasure, and really take note of how it impacts our wellness!
