That title may be a bit misleading because we aren't saying your masturbation *needs* improving, but if you're feeling like your masturbation routine is feeling a little stale, we're here to give you some tips & tricks for improving your masturbation routine.
Try a Different Toy
If your go-to sex toy is a suction-clit vibrator, why not try something new like a G-spot massager sex toy? Or, perhaps a rabbit vibrator? Or even an anal plug? Trying something new is one of the easiest ways to change up your masturbation routine.
Set the Mood
Yes, it's cliche, but setting the mood can be one of those minor changes that make your solo session that much better. Try dimming the lights, lighting a candle, playing a sexy playlist (here is a great masturbation-friendly playlist), or even subscribing to an audio porn site.
If you're like *most* people, you probably think of watching yourself during sex or while you masturbate as a turn-on or something you normally do. But, we're here to say that it can totally be a turn-on! Plus, it can be empowering AF.
Try it in the A.M.
Raise your hand if you're a fan of morning sex? Well, you're about to a fan of masturbating in the morning, too. Since orgasming can help release stress, it can be a game-changer for dealing with that co-worker you don't like...
If you regularly masturbate on your back, try switching positions! You can sit up on your knees and press your clitoris against a vibrator or try simulating doggie style.
Back Off Before You Orgasm
Commonly known as "edging", teasing yourself before you orgasm that make the masturbation session so much more intense. Instead of going fast with the intent to orgasm, try adding in gentle and soft strokes here and there. Bring yourself to the edge of an orgasm and then slow everything down. Repeat a few times to ride those waves of pleasure as long as you can!
Lube can be a game-changer when it comes to masturbating. Even if you have some natural vaginal lubrication to begin with, extra lube can make things a lot more comfortable. If you're just using your hands to masturbate, place a quarter size amount on your index and middle fingers and gently massage around your clitoris and inner labia (the folds inside the larger folds that make up the majority of your vagina). We're loving the Woo More Play all-natural lubricant right now.
Let Go of Expectations
We often feel like the end goal of masturbation is an orgasm. And while that's normally true, it can sometimes stress us out if it isn't happening the way we want it to or it just isn't happening at all. Let go of that expectation that you have to orgasm every time you masturbate and don't beat yourself up if it doesn't happen every time. Just like we have off days in life, we have off days masturbating - and that's okay!
