The Christmas period can be stressful, and the extra responsibilities leave little room for experimentation. But before you add losing weight or saving money to your New Year’s resolutions list, consider putting your pleasure first. Seriously, there’s nothing more fulfilling than building a strong relationship with your body and learning about what it likes. Today you’ll find out about the best masturbation positions that will make this festive season extremely jolly.
If you’re ready to take a relationship with your body to the next level, keep reading to discover the best positions you should try.
But first, here’s why you should masturbate in different positions:
1. It teaches your body to respond to novel sensations
If you always masturbate in the same position, I don’t blame you. There’s nothing worse than the feeling of sexual frustration when you can’t get off, especially if your main goal is to relax after a long day of work. And who even has the time to really commit to masturbation sessions? But the thing is, if you train your body to respond to one type of stimulation, you’ll struggle to achieve climax when you do something differently. This means that it will be difficult for you to be satisfied when you’re with a partner and that you’re missing out on many wonderful experiences. Sure, clitoral orgasm is amazing, but what if you could add other types of orgasms to the equation? Mixing it up teaches your body that it can receive pleasure from many different sources, whether it’s your hand, your partner’s tongue, or a new vibrator.
2. It allows you to unlock more pleasure
We all know that clitoris is the center of female pleasure. Then there’s the G spot that comes close second, and somehow a combination of two is supposed to make you feel in heaven. But did you know that women can achieve other types of orgasms? Cervix orgasm, nipple orgasm, erotic mind control… you name it. It’s even possible to stimulate yourself with your just thoughts or by viewing sexual images. The sooner you understand that going for the same masturbation style over and over again is a shortcut, the sooner you’ll be able to access sensations you haven’t even dreamed of. Change your approach to masturbation and let yourself reach your full potential, and one of the most effective means to do so is to utilize different positions while masturbating.
3. It allows you to learn more about your body
Being in tune with your pleasure can be a great confidence boost. You’ll no longer have to rely on anyone else to make you feel good because you’ll know exactly what your body needs—massaging your clitoris in a circular motion for a minute and switching to up and down movement? Check. Holding a vibrator in that one specific spot? Check. This might also help you improve your body image: who cares if your vagina doesn’t look like the ones in porn if it can make you feel so amazing?
Top Positions to Try
The good news is, you can easily teach your body how to respond to different sensations. All it takes is a bit of practice. Below you can find the best masturbation positions that are a great place to start.
1. On your back
This one is a classic that you’re probably very familiar with. Perhaps it’s even your go-to position that you’ve been relying on since childhood. It’s quite incognito, after all – all you have to do is lie in bed and cover yourself with sheets, and voila, you’re unlikely to get discovered even if you keep the curtains open. But the problem with this style is that it might strengthen the belief that masturbation is wrong. Add the outdated views that women shouldn’t enjoy sex as much as men, and you have the recipe for masturbation that isn’t as satisfying as it could be. If you want to reclaim your sexuality, there’s a simple way to change this position up a bit. Place a pillow under your pelvis and bring your knees up, almost like in the apanasana yoga pose. This will give you more direct access to your clitoris and plenty of space if you want to use a dildo.
Just because a clitoral orgasm might be the fastest way to climax doesn’t mean you can’t step up your game. Squatting is one of the best masturbation positions because it gives you access to all parts of your vulva. Instead of focusing on stimulating just one spot, trace your fingers along the labial folds and around your clitoris to warm up. Start from your usual stroking style and then try to experiment with different variations; use circular motions, light tapping, or whatever feels best. If you’re a fan of deep penetration, this one is a real treat. You can easily attach a dildo to the floor and slide on top to enjoy different types of stimulation all at once.
3. Sitting in front of the mirror
While watching yourself in the mirror seems intimidating, it can also help you connect with yourself and gain more sexual confidence, which can also help to increase your overall sex drive. You’ll be able to see exactly how your body responds to certain types of stimulation and learn how to give in to sensations completely. This will take time, but the benefits are worth it. The most important thing to remember is not to worry about how you look – just sit in front of the mirror and spread your legs in a comfortable position. The bonus point is also that you’ll be able to see your genitals clearly. You’d be surprised how many women have never seen their vulvas before.
4. On all fours
While you might enjoy playing solo as much as with a partner, sometimes all that gets you going is imagining you’re being stimulated by someone else. Since doggy isn’t a face-to-face position, masturbating on all fours can make this fantasy seem more real. Lie your chest on a pillow and use one hand to penetrate yourself with a dildo. Keeping your hand at an awkward angle for long might be tricky, but you can always invest in a suction cup dildo or a butt plug to make things hands-free and much more manageable.
Extra Tips to Make Masturbation More Pleasurable
1. Change the location
No matter how many positions you try, masturbating in the same spot will get boring sooner or later. Consider taking your next session to an entirely different location, such as a bath or a shower. For example, we’ve compiled a list of the best places to masturbate in public should you have a desire to get risky and fulfill your exhibitionist kinks.
2. Try out new toys
Your fingers and your favorite vibrator can only do so much. Check out the latest trends and find a toy that can offer you a new kind of stimulation. For example, one of the most recent hits is a clit sucker that uses suction and pulsation to stimulate your nerve endings.
3. Get creative
While sticking a bottle up your vagina isn’t a good idea, there are ways to safely include everyday items in your session. For example, you can use an electric toothbrush to stimulate your clitoris or play with ice cubes.
4. Add an extra type of stimulation
Don’t be ashamed if you need extra help to climax. Watching ethical porn or listening to an erotic audiobook while masturbating doesn’t just make it easier to come but can also result in a more intense orgasm.
