Masturbation is a great way to release stress, catch some ZZZs, or just have a good time. It’s also great for a man’s health, mental and physical. Masturbation is like exercise for a man’s love muscle, as release produces endorphins and feel-good hormones that put a man in an excellent state of mind. All of that said, masturbation can get a little ho-hum after a while. But have no fear! There are plenty of masturbation techniques and tips that a man can employ to make going Han(d) Solo a little more exciting. Here are eight tips any man can add to his masturbation style for explosive results.
Masturbation Tip #1: Switch Hands for the Handy
Probably the most natural tip of the bunch: just switch hands. By changing hands, sensation and tension differ, and stroking feels a little less familiar (in a good way).
Bonus Tip: Try “The Stranger.” This is where a man sits on his hand until it falls asleep and then starts masturbating with it as to feel like someone else is doing the stroking.
Masturbation Tip #2: Switch Up the Positions
Just as in sex, switching up positions makes everything a little new. If a man is a sitter, try standing. If he likes to do it only in the shower, try it laying down. Consider kneeling or starting on all fours for something a little less ordinary.
Masturbation Tip #3: The Hips Don’t Lie
Rather than doing all the stroking with the hand, try gyrating and thrusting to increase intensity and pleasure. Try circular or the famous in-and-out motion and see what feels the best. This will also save a man the hand cramps that sometimes accompany solo play. It’s also a great way to prep for the real thing.
Masturbation Tip #4: Lewis and Clark Your Erogenous Zones
It’s time to get exploratory. There are many more places on a man’s body that can elicit excitement and pleasure than just his penis. Take masturbation techniques to the next level by giving the regular stroke an add-on. Play with the testicles, lightly tease the perineum, and go anywhere that could incite enjoyment. There are plenty of nerve ending to go around, so show the other erogenous zones a little love. Play with pressure as well; there’s a lot to say for pinching, pulling, and tweaking these special zones that can really intensify the big finish and get a man closer to the full-body orgasm.
Masturbation Tip #5: It Takes Different Strokes to Rule the World
Sure, the fast up-and-down motion is a tried-and-true masturbation technique, but why not try something different? Use longer, slow strokes, or just focus on certain parts of the shaft. Change the up-and-down to the up-and-around by stroking up the penis, then palming the top of the head and then stroking down. Try a little twist too – it can make all the difference.
Masturbation Tip #6: Edging
Edging is not only great for masturbation but also for orgasm control with a partner. To edge, a man masturbates to the edge of his release and then pulls back and slows things down and then repeats. This draws out the pleasure, leading to a more powerful orgasm.
Masturbation Tip #7: Hit the P-Spot
Stimulate the prostate, or the P-Spot, for the intense, full-body release. Stroke the shaft and then with the other hand, stimulate the anal opening and slowly insert a finger to massage the prostate. Increase motion and speed to come to a climax. Some men prefer toys to help rather than their own digits.
Masturbation Tip #8: Try a Toy
Ladies have toys, so why not the men? There are tons of things available from the all-popular Fleshlight to anal beads to vibrating eggs. Men should experiment and find out what works for them. Add them to partner play if the mood fits.
After all of this well-deserved self-gratification, a man’s penis needs a little TLC; so after washing up, moisturize with a special oil. Men need an oil that is made expressly for delicate penile skin and one that provides the necessary nutrients to encourage rejuvenation and soft, elastic skin. Apply a penis health oil (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin daily and after masturbating. It moisturizes and rejuvenates the penis while protecting it from nerve damage, dryness, and bacteria. It’s the best thing a man can do for his penis.
