Happy National Masturbation Month! We all know that there’s no “right” way to masturbate, and you’re not doing it wrong – it’s all normal. Whether you like to use your hands, pillows, running water, or toys – it’s all normal. Whether you do it once a week, once a day, or three times a day – it’s all normal. Today we’re sharing our top 13 masturbation tips for women.
Masturbation is actually good for you because it releases stress and anxiety. It also increases blood flow to the genitals, which is important because blood flow keeps the vagina healthy.
Plus, it’s super-good for your sex life in all sorts of ways. When a woman masturbates and has an orgasm, a powerful hormone that makes a woman want to bond more with her partner.
Mirrors, Moods and Multitasking
Use a mirror. You need to know your own body, and that takes some investigating. Look on the internet at a clinical map of the female anatomy. Then get a mirror and take a look at your own body to get familiar with it.
Set the right mood. Tidy up, light some candles, draw a bath, and get into a blissed-out mindset. It’s hard to feel sexy if your room’s smothered in dirty laundry and yesterday’s food containers. Tidying your romantic setting can help you relax and tune in to your own pleasure.
Stop multitasking. The biggest threat to a pleasurable masturbation session is multitasking. Many women who are so used to multitasking between jobs and kids and partners and life often try to multitask during sex and masturbation. Be mindful and focus your mind.
Don’t shut down completely. You don’t have to completely turn off your mind to orgasm. Paying close attention to sensations and using your mind to focus on the pleasure can greatly enhance your orgasms.
Fantasize. Every woman has a fantasy, and it doesn’t have to be about you and your partner. It also doesn’t have to be about whips and chains or whatever the hot fantasy novels or porn movies are doing. No matter what your fantasy is, you don’t have to question your sexuality.
Don’t avoid penetration. Not all women like masturbation that involves penetration, but if you’re up for it, you can move your fingers in and out of the vagina to add more stimulation. You can also get a vibrator that allows for penetration.
Technique, Teasing, and Toys
Be generous with the lube. Lube is great for sex, so yep, it’s also great for masturbation. An important part of masturbating is how lubricated you are because it makes it more comfortable to stimulate your genitals.
Change your technique. If you always use your hands, try a pillow. If you’re always on your back, try turning over. There is no one position that works for everyone. You have to experiment to find what’s right for you.”
Tease yourself. Reaching orgasm while masturbating doesn’t mean you have to go at it full throttle. There’s a technique known as “edging,” that involves masturbating to build tension, then stopping just before you orgasm. It’s a great way to draw out the pleasure before the grand finale.
Do it more often. One study found that women masturbate at least once a week, but you deserve a second helping (or more). The more you masturbate, the more you’ll want to do it.
Think outside the clitoris. Combining stimulation from multiple regions (e.g. clitoris, vagina, cervix and nipple) can add some serious pleasure. Your body is a treasure trove of not-so-obvious pleasure spots. Let your hands wander to spots like your nipples or inner thighs, to see what really gets you going.
Enjoy the ride. One of our most important masturbation tips for women is to simply to appreciate the sensation and not set out with the sole intention of orgasm. Being in the experience is key.
