Getting Off: Tips for Making Masturbation More Exciting

Tips for Making Masturbation More Exciting

The average man masturbates 21 times a month. That’s more than every other day! This probably doesn’t come as a surprise to most people. Men love sex, and why not? It feels awesome, offers stress relief, and has other health benefits as well. But dry spells happen and sometimes, you might find yourself horny, single, and in need of a release. This is why masturbation is a popular choice for singles or men with an active sexual appetite.

Tips for Making Masturbation More Exciting

Are you getting bored with the same old thing? If your right hand and a bottle of lotion just aren’t cutting it anymore, keep reading. Here are a few ways to bring some variety to your next solo sex play session.

Let Your Partner Watch

One of the best ways to spice up solo-play is by inviting a friend to join in the fun. No, we aren’t talking about sex. This is self-pleasure, remember? However, there are no rules against inviting your partner to watch you masturbate. If things go well, they might feel compelled to slip their hand in their own pants too! 

There’s something highly erotic about watching your partner pleasure themselves. We instinctively know what feels good and what works — how to touch it, stroke it, rub it, and so on. Having your partner watch you jerk off is hot in and of itself, but it might actually lead to hotter sex later on down the line. Why? Your partner can take mental notes of exactly what you like and how you like it and put them to good use the next time they get their hands on you. 

Invest in Some Guy-Friendly Sex Toys

The whole concept behind masturbation is to simulate the feeling of real sex with a real partner. Although nothing can quite replace the feeling of a warm, soft, beautifully-smelling woman, sometimes, your right hand and some lube work just fine. But if you want a more authentic experience, it’s time to bring in some toys

Most people think only women use sex toys and vibrators to masturbate. Not so fast. There are plenty of fun devices designed specifically with male anatomy and pleasure in mind. Masturbation sleeves are made of soft, flexible material and with a textured interior. Held in your hand, you can masturbate using lube and enjoy the unfamiliar feel. Take things one step further by investing in a pocket pussy or Fleshlight. These magic holes resemble the look, feel, and tightness of a real vagina! They’re also available in a variety of colors and styles to meet all your naughty needs and fantasies. Looking for a long-term masturbation partner? The world of sex dolls is exploding (pun intended). Some are even equipped with AI technology, which means you can have a conversation with your doll and even make her orgasm!

Warm Up with Some Porn

Over 40 million Americans can’t be wrong. That’s how many people regularly visit porn sites. Watching porn and masturbating go hand in hand (another pun intended). Switch things up by trying a different kind of porn. Do you normally watch girl-on-girl action? Throw a MILF video or gang bang into the mix for some variety. Did you know that not all porn has to be visual? (Although that is what men respond to best.) Try reading a few erotica stories and see where your imagination takes you. Sometimes, the hottest porn out there is the ideas and images you create in your own mind.

Watch Yourself 

Forget porn, nothing is hotter than sex in real life. Even though you’re not having intercourse, you can still enjoy watching yourself get off. Position yourself in front of a mirror and see things in a new light. Watch how your body moves, twitches, and grows as you stroke and rub your most sensitive areas. Spread your legs wide for a better view or sit in a chair or even on the edge of the bed. You can also try including propers in your performance like a costume blindfold (for a bigger surprise later) or other self-bondage accessories. Another option is to video yourself and then watch it later — or share it with your partner! Just save yourself the trouble and don’t send the video to anyone — and maybe delete it after the fact for good measure.

Take It on the Road

No, we aren’t suggesting masturbating while you’re driving. That has “bad idea” written all over. What we are suggesting is taking your masturbation outside the bed, shower, or bathroom stall. Try masturbating somewhere you normally don’t. Have you always wanted to masturbate in the middle of the woods? Grab your tent and become one with nature! Some guys masturbate in the bathroom while at work or behind a dark building during their night shift. While voyeurism (getting off on watching people have sex) and exhibitionism (sexual arousal over being watched) are popular fetishes, you need to be careful. Masturbating in public or in plain view is highly illegal and you’ll find yourself in deep waters if you get caught. 

Edging

Taking things to the edge can be extremely hot and satisfying. It’s like blue balls, but more fun. The concept is bringing yourself to the edge and then backing off right before you finish. You continue to do this — get yourself worked up almost to the point of climax and then backing off — until you can’t wait any longer. The reward for this sadistic behavior is a powerful orgasm. The more build-up, the better the release. Edging is a common practice for couples but the same techniques apply to solo-play. You may even discover that your orgasm is longer and stronger thanks to a mix of sexual arousal and relaxation.

Make Your Solo-Sex Life as Exciting as the Real Thing

Your solo sex-life should be as exciting as the one you share with your partner. After all, when you know how to please yourself, it leads to better sex for everyone. Switch things up with new locations, new toys, and new techniques to keep things exciting and your body guessing what’s coming next (other than you!).
