5 Tips to Enjoy National Masturbation Month

In honor of National Masturbation Month we decided to give you some tips on enjoying your next session. Learning what pleasures you and how to get there is just as fun as it sounds. Next time you are on a solo mission try these tips to make your trip to the Big O a memorable one.

  1. Get in the mood

Books, movies, pictures or fantasies… pick your pleasure and enjoy. Getting in a sexual mood does not only mean finding something that stimulates you sexually. It could also mean listening to some romantic music, taking a warm bath or lighting some candles to relax you and calm any anxieties. Before going straight to the action makes sure you are comfortable in whatever space you have chosen.

  1. Use lube

Many people don’t think about lube when they are by themselves. Lube can make things go a little smoother (pun intended) and makes the next step that much easier. Keeping all erotic zones slippery makes it a breeze to go from one spot to another.

  1. Explore, Explore, Explore

If you have ever diddled, you know the areas that turn you on the most. Instead of going straight to it take some time to find other areas on your body that lack attention. There are so many erogenous zones that are never explored whether alone or with a partner. This is also a good time to explore different pressures and/or speeds. If you always have the aid of your toys, try to do without them and figure out what your hands can do or use them on different parts of your body. If you have never tried toys and you have some, try them out and see where they can take you. Learn as much about your body as you can while getting yourself to the destination.

  1. Find the Hot Spots

Now that you have explored it is ok to go to the hot spots. You know the areas, movements and speed that help you reach orgasm. If orgasm is your goal, go ahead and head in that direction.

  1. Not so fast…

Before you cross the finish line, STOP! Yes, you read that right. Take your hand away from the hotspot or stop the motion. This may take some practice to know when to stop without completely losing the orgasm. Once it has subsided, begin again. Do this 1 or 2 times more times and you may end up having a more intense orgasm.

These tips are meant for men and women. Use this month to explore your body and enjoy all parts of what it can do.
