Pleasure is usually best when shared, but you don’t always need a partner to have a good time. In fact, even when you’re in a relationship, maintaining a healthy masturbation schedule can help to keep you in tune with your body and what works for you. How we experience pleasure changes all the time, and if you’re not masturbating regularly, you might be missing out on some serious tricks.
Masturbation is also an excellent way to bring down stress levels, increase your happy hormones and just unwind at the end of the long day. And it’s also a serious turn on for your partner, particularly if they know you’re at home in bed alone enjoying your own body.
If you’re looking to spice things up in the bedroom for yourself, you might want to try a new position. We tend to fall into a routine when masturbating, but like sex with a partner, it’s always best if you’re open to exploring new options. Read on to learn the top 6 masturbation positions you need to try next time you’re alone.
Lie back on the sofa or your bed and get comfortable. With your feet together, let your knees fall apart so you’re fully exposed. The point of this position is to get close and intimate with all erogenous zones, from the penis to the anus and everything in between. If you’ve never explored prostate massagers before, now is the time to try it. Make sure you introduce plenty of lube to the situation so that everything feels like and sensual.
If you want to make sure your rabbit vibrator hits all the right places, you need to try flipping things around. Take a pillow and lay down on top of this on your bed with your legs on either side. The weight of your body adds pressure as you pleasure yourself to intensify the sensations. Leaning against a pillow will also change the angle of your pelvis, which leaves your clitoris better exposed for stimulation. And the angle will also ensure any internal toys are able to hit your G spot with ease, which should lead to an earth-shattering blended orgasm.
If you like to make a spectacle of your masturbation, this is the move for you. Use it alone in front of a mirror or try this across the bed from your partner. Start on your knees and then sit back, supporting the weight of your body with your non-active hand. You then go to town on pleasuring yourself with your hands or toys. The beauty of this move is the exposure you get and the visual stimulation. This position also allows you to mimic a thrusting movement if you have a penetrative toy.
This one will test your endurance, but the added thigh workout makes it all the more worthwhile. To achieve this move, simply bend your knees and lower into a squat position. This will leave internal and external pleasure points open for stimulation.
This position allows you to achieve greater depth, so you can simulate thrusting with a penetrative toy. If you’re into double penetration, this would be the ideal time to bring out your favourite double ended toy. If you find yourself getting tired, you can rock forward onto your knees.
You’ll need a sturdy pillow or sex wedge to achieve this move. Kneel behind the pillow or wedge and support yourself by putting your hands on a flat surface in front. The idea is then to thrust against the pillow to enjoy hands free stimulation.
You might make a mess with this one, so make sure you have tissues or a towel ready for quick clean up. You should also make sure you’re using plenty of lube to enhance the pleasure, rather than feeling the friction of every thrust. You can take this move up a notch by introducing a hands free prostate massager into the mix.
This move will give your lower body a good stretch while also exposing your pleasure points for exploration. You’ll also have the chance to engage your pelvic floor, which can help you to achieve stronger and more intense orgasms. Sit upright with the soles of your feet together and allow your knees to fall out to the side. It doesn’t matter if they lie flat, just let them rest where they are comfortable. You can then go to town on yourself and find your ideal rhythm. This position is great for G-spot and P-spot stimulation, so don’t be afraid to bring some toys into the mix. A bullet vibrator, butt plug or a rabbit vibrator would be the ideal choice for this yoga-inspired move.
