When was the last time you felt your way to a new sensation? In case you didn't know, solo play doesn’t just feel good, it is legit good for you! Take your time and savour the sensations, be in the experience of exploring your pleasure and just feel it out. Cliterally.
1. Set The Mood
Vulvas feel the most pleasure when the whole body is aroused. Fire up your senses to stimulate sexual arousal in a comfortable and relaxing space.
Try slipping into something silky soft, cue up your favourite sex playlist, treat yourself to some dark chocolate or pistachio ice-cream to increase the pleasure centres in your brain and ease into pleasure with some sensual foreplay.
2. Go Slow & Steady
Unlike their penis counterparts, vulvas take 4 times as long to get blood flow in. Take some time to explore your entire vulva and touch each individual part to find what makes you go 'OOooOH'.
You can start with massaging the labia lips, gently cupping the vulva, or making figure-eights on your clitoris. Experiment with different pressures as you go along and notice what makes you feel good.
3. Lube It Up
Lube is great for sex, naturally, it also comes in handy for masturbation. While the vagina self-lubricates, adding some extra lubrication can help reduce friction and introduce a smoother more pleasurable experience.
Use your fingers to spread the lube around sensually along your intimate parts. This can add another euphoric level of sensory experience to your stimulation.
4. Get Cliterate
Packed with over 10,000 nerve endings and being the only organ made solely for pleasure, stimulating the clitoris is the best way to reach an orgasm for more than 80% of vulva owners who won't orgasm through vaginal stimulation alone.
Using any (clean) tool you fancy, whether it's your fingers or a sex toy, try rubbing, making circles, stroking, tapping or making pulsing motions to stimulate your clit.
5. Good Vibes Only
Modern vibrators, like life-changing clit suckers that mimics sucking, stroking, and tapping, or internal ones like rabbit vibrators that give you eye-rolling orgasms, help to elevate the sensations happening throughout your body. There are over 10 different types of orgasms a woman can tap into.
Start with the lowest intensity and build on your pleasure gradually. And if the lowest intensity is too overwhelming, you can use the vibrator over your panty or a towel to dull the sensations.
