Sex tips for solo orgasms
1. Use lube - There is nothing nice about dry scratchy sex toys. Make sure to use water-based lube for a better experience.
2. Change locations - Maybe you don’t feel comfortable in your bed. Worried someone might walk in? Many sex toys are waterproof, so why not lock yourself in the bathroom for some wet and wild fun.
3. Find the right position - This is a two-part tip. Not only do you need to find the right placement for your toy, but your whole body position matters too. Try it on your back, sides and stomach - maybe even sitting or standing to see what allows you the best access.
4. Explore your whole body - You have lots of erogenous zones and vibrating and sucking toys can explore those too if you get a body-safe toy. Either way, your hands can pinch, caress and stroke your nipples, stomach and inner thighs as an effective side dish to the main event.
5. Clench and release - Tightening and loosening your pelvic floor (Kegels) can increase the intensity of your orgasm too.
6. Take your time - This isn’t a race. Try for a solo orgasm when you are unbothered, unstressed and unrushed. Light some candles, put on some music or a sexy movie. Remember that your first goal is finding out what feels good. Take your foot on and off the gas to slowly build to orgasm.
7. Bring in a partner - Once you know what you like, try adding in your partner. Show them what works for you or trade giving each other pleasure. Sex toys can add spice to the bedroom for both of you.
