Tabuu Wrap-up: Lubrication improves everything. So, why are you not integrating it into your sexual adventures with yourself?
Good friends make our lives easier. They’re always there when things get tight and they make sure to help things go smoother. Having a good friend on hand will help you get through life’s ups and downs. So, it makes perfect sense that lube is sex’s best friend.
It’s impossible to ignore the benefits lubrication provides during sex, whether on your own or with a partner. The tiniest squeeze from a bottle can make things a lot more comfortable and pleasurable than before. So why isn’t lube a more popular topic when it comes to masturbation? It’s a great tool after all, so it doesn’t make sense it’s left out.
The problem could be we’re not used to thinking of lubrication as a tool for masturbation. Men use lube more often than women, but when it comes right down to it, few people use it at all. That’s why today’s article is about bringing attention to lube as a tool for masturbation, so let’s get into it!
1. Lube Is Not Just for Your Fun Bits!
It’s not out of the ordinary to believe lube is only meant for those parts of our bodies that are more prone to friction. Lube makes motion easier after all, so it’s usually placed on the vulva, the penis, as well as around the vagina and anus. However, that doesn’t mean lube can’t be used all over your body when you’re masturbating, such as your inner elbows, nipples, armpits, and knees. These areas are very sensitive, so the slickness that lubrication provides will make things a lot more pleasurable.
2. Explore as Many Sensations as Possible
Variety and mixing things up is what makes life interesting, particularly sex. So if you want to spice things up during your masturbation sessions, you want to explore the different types of lube available. Water-based lubes and silicone-based lubes offer different sensations, and so do heating or cooling lubes, which are perfect for temperature play. Masturbation is about exploring your personal pleasure and all the different sensations your body has to offer.
3. Lube Those Sex Toys Up
This tip is a little obvious, but some toys can be used without lubrication and others will definitely require it. The dry approach to masturbation with sex toys can still feel good. But add a little lube and it will feel incredible. This is particularly true for vibrators because it will make the vibration feel a lot more intense.
4. Use Air to Freshen Things Up
Who knew a fan could work as a tool for sexual pleasure? Now, I’m not saying you should literally use it. That would be insane. What I’m saying is a little breeze can do wonders during masturbation, especially when you’re all lubed up. Blowing air on your lubed areas can work as a great technique for edging during masturbation because it will allow you to stop and start back up again when you need it. Just place a fan somewhere safe and direct it between your legs so you can feel the slight breeze whenever you stop playing with yourself. You can also turn the fan on and off as you see fit for your pleasure.
5. Try Using More Lube than You Need
This tip will not appeal to everyone because it depends on how sloppy you like things to be. When it comes to using lube, many people only use what they need. But what if you use more than you need? It will allow you to explore many more possibilities because your hands and your sex toys will be a slippery mess and that messiness can be extremely sexy. Not for everyone, but for some! The only way to find out is by giving it a try. Whether you like to use just enough or a whole lot, your masturbation session will still feel incredible. Just have a damp cloth or towel at the ready for when you’re done.
6. Try Different Lubes
The industry of sex products is booming, so there are many different sex toys and tools to help you have a more pleasurable experience, whether on your own or with a partner. Lubes are no exception, which means there are many different lubes available on the market and keeping up can be a challenge. What most people do is try different lubes and then stick to the one the like most. But you should know that many brands offer sample packages you can get. What better way to explore many different options and enjoy them whenever you want?
7. Make Note of What You Like and What You Don’t
Some people are huge sex nerds and they keep track of everything they use, pros and cons included. In other words, they’re very diligent and they take their pleasure very seriously. You could learn a thing or two from people like this! Make a habit of enjoying your sexy alone time, try different things, and then make note of the pros and cons. When it comes to using different kinds of lubes and finding different ways to enjoy them during masturbation, researching, and documenting things is very important. You don’t want to lose track of anything you like, so make sure you make note of anything worthwhile.
