7 Ways to Shake Up Your Self-Love Life

Dec 142017

masturbation_tipsEvery woman needs a bit of self lovin’ every now and then after all, it’s a great way to connect with your own body and de-stress –  but it can be easy to get stuck in a bit of a rut. Once you find your preferred way to rock your socks off or get your vibe on, you can forget how enjoyable it is to experiment and try new things. Here we have a few suggestions for how you can spice up your ‘me time’!

Lube Up!

The wetter the better. Masturbation is no fun if you have an intimate drought going on! While there can be some medical reasons behind a sudden change in your ability to self-lubricate, there is absolutely nothing wrong with using lube.

A water-based intimate moisturizer makes everything more fun – whether you’re using your fingers or a toy – so give your lube a place of honor on your bedside table!

Get Re-Acquainted with Your Vulva

Now that you have the lube out, take time to really explore your vulva. There is much more to the  structure – and pleasure potential – of the clitoris  than meets the eye, and you may find that there are some hidden pleasure points you didn’t even know about! This goes double for both sets of labia, which have plenty of sweet spots hidden in their folds!

Check Out Your Vagina Too!

Sure, you may be able to achieve a clitoral orgasm easily roughly 80% of women have trouble reaching orgasm through vaginal stimulation alone but that doesn’t mean you should give up the hunt for the sometimes illusive G-spot.

The G-spot is located 5 to 7 centimeters (2 to 3 inches) inside the vagina on the frontal  wall. You’ll notice that this area feels slightly different from the rest of the vagina; a little bumpier. With either your fingers or a massager specially sculpted to target your G-spot, you can experiment with applying constant or intermittent pressure against it in conjunction with clitoral stimulation. Try and replicate a ‘come-hither’ motion to really get things going.

Get Your Whole Body Involved

When it comes to masturbation, it is easy to think ‘vagina, vagina, vagina.’ Well, how about thinking ‘ears, nipples and necks,’ too! These are all erogenous zones of the female body that usually don’t get the attention they deserve.

You can never go wrong with foreplay – solo or partnered – so massage your body or do whatever gets your juices flowing.

Change the Scenery

If you always masturbate in bed, then maybe it’s time to mix things up! Try your sofa or lock yourself in the bathroom. With a waterproof massager, you can take full advantage of your bathtub or shower just watch your water usage!

Switch Positions

Ever considered Kama Sutra? Solo practice makes perfect! Try kneeling like you would in the reverse cowgirl position, or standing up; you can lean back with your legs apart or lean forward onto a counter and move your body against a clitoral massager like Kiri to replicate an upstanding bump’n’grind!

Take Your Time

It can be so tempting to rush straight towards the finish line and go back to your business after a quick ‘O.’ While these little quickies can be great, and practical if you’re short on time, try not to limit yourself. It’s not all about the orgasm, it’s about the journey too!

Female masturbation has been historically frowned upon and there are still taboos surrounding it, which can make even the most enthusiastic practitioner think of their pleasure in a very singular way.

However, masturbation is good for you! It helps you feel relaxed physically and mentally, it can lead to a better night’s sleep, it helps increase body confidence and awareness we could go on! So when indulging in solo sex, take the time to appreciate it in all its glory!
