1. Fantasy Partner
I wish I could take credit for this tip, but I can’t. I read about it a while back and thought it was brilliant! It will work for anyone (although technically the original tip was just for penis-owners). One of the things about masturbation is that it always feels somewhat the same. However, what if you could make it feel like it is not actually YOU pleasing yourself? Yup. So, to do this you will sit on the hand you plan to use for masturbation (usually, your dominant hand) until it goes numb. Like N-U-M-B. Then, you proceed as per normal. This makes it feel like you are not the one doing the action. It seriously works! The key here is to make sure your hand is really like a dead appendage. It was a very interesting sensation for sure.
2. The Switch Hitter
A variation on the technique above is the switch hitter, when you use your non-dominant hand to perform the action. Some people have been hearing about this for years, using the opposite hand to make the sensations different, but really anyone can use this trick! We are not as adept at using our non-dominant hand, so when we do, the sensations vary completely and often we use more or less pressure, go more slowly, or even find spots we miss when we play with our dominant hands! It is also sometimes fun to switch between the dominant and non-dominant hands, just for variety.
3. Lube Time
Okay, so if you do not use lube for personal playtime then this is something you realllly need to try. I am not talking about the lotion on your night stand, I am talking about serious lubricant. Lubricant is less sticky, more slippery, longer lasting and allows whatever is going on to slip and slide easily around. You'll be able to stroke faster and get a much smoother (less drag) stroke or if you have a vagina, your fingers or toys will slide around effortlessly and provide a much more fluid experience. Lubrication during masturbation is not a new concept, but so many people are resistant to it that I feel I must add it in as a new way to masturbate.
4. Bring In A Sex Toy
There are so many options, including realistic vaginas, that can add a visual element as well. If you've got a vagina, then the toy options are fairly limitless and can change the experience literally every time you play. If you have a standard vibe, you can use it internally, externally or flip back and forth. There are internal toys, dual actions, bullets, anal toys – the list goes on and on and on. If you change a toy, you change your masturbation routine and it becomes a whole new experience!
