It's officially the last week of National Masturbation Month! We hope everyone #masturbatedinmay and maybe learned a thing or two about masturbation. This week, we're writing about 10 things you didn't know you needed to masturbate.
Just to clarify, you don't *actually* need these things, you can masturbate however the hell you want, but hopefully, a few of these help you break out of a masturbation rut (if you're in one) or simply add some fun to your current masturbation routine.
Might be obvious, might not - but a blanket can help with two things. 1) it can get chilly with no clothes on and 2) if your roommate or kid barges in for something or another you can easily cover-up.
A Masturbation Playlist
You've got a sex playlist, why not make a solo sex playlist? Listening to some tunes while masturbating can definitely get you feeling some type of way.

An Audio Erotica Site
If your go-to is usually visual porn, try switching it up with audio porn. Here are some good ones from Cosmopolitan.
Noise Cancelling Headphones
To listen to the audio erotica site or your fav playlist. Or, to drown out the sound of your roommate watching The Bachelor or your kiddos playing in the other room...
Either to lay on or to hump, the choice is yours. A pillow can also help with switching up masturbation positions. Try placing it under your back to lift your hips a little or using it as a knee-protector for doggy-style.
Rubbing your clit like you're applying self-tanner before a beach trip is not the way to go. Research says the four motions women love the most on their clit are: up and down, circular, side to side, and pulsating, or rapid pushing.
Here's a little PDF to go along with it too, if you'd like to spread the word:
