Part B: Masturbation techniques for maximum pleasure


1) Getting started – Madam Palm and her five lovely daughters

masturbation: sex with someone you loveMost people, both men and women, learn from an early age that their hand is the perfect friend with benefits. It’s natural, effective and an enormous amount of fun.

Yet many guys still get stuck thinking that the best way to masturbate is simply as follows:

  • Switch on a movie.
  • Grip penis gently but firmly in your stronger hand.
  • Move up and down repeatedly at lightning speed.
  • Ejaculate into a tissue.
  • Return to the paused video game.

This is, of course, one of the oldest and most satisfying masturbation methods known to mankind. The speed and pressure you can apply brings about an immensely satisfying orgasm. However, with a little creativity and variety, you can take it to a whole new level as you’ll soon see.

2) Madam Palm’s twin sister

two hands are better than oneEven at this basic level you can still spice things up considerably by using your other hand. Here are some ideas:

  • Try using just your other hand once in a while.
  • Try using both hands at the same time. If you can put them one next to the other on your shaft, then lucky for you and any girl you meet. But if not, you can try holding your penis between both palms pressed together.
  • You can use one hand to move up and down the shaft while the other plays with the head of your penis.
  • Wringing is a great double-handed technique. Imagine wringing the water out of a cloth by squeezing your hands in opposite directions. Just be a bit more gentle with yourself!

3) Don’t leave your balls hanging

2 ballsYour balls are more than just an oddly shaped storage facility. They’re an erogenous zone which you can use to heighten your orgasms.

It’s up to you to work out the best way to masturbate by including your testicles; all guys are different, but here are some suggestions:

  • Pull them slightly downwards while masturbating.
  • Try caressing, stroking or tickling them – experiment to see what and where feels good.
  • Try just holding them in a light but firm grip with the other hand.

There’s another good reason to spend some quality time with your balls. If you know what they feel like normally, you can look out for any unusual lumps – something all guys should do on a regular basis.

4) It’s not just women that have multiple erogenous zones

diagram of the male and female erogenous zonesEven though the majority of masturbation techniques are centered on the penis and balls, there are other parts of your body that should respond well to a little attention.

It’s a popular belief that only women are blessed with multiple erogenous zones. However, the truth is that your body is far more sensitive than you might think.

For example, try caressing and pinching your nipples in the way that you would a woman’s. Experiment with different strokes, pressure and movements.

Try stroking the inside of your thighs or your stomach. If there’s anywhere that you know you’re sensitive, don’t be afraid to explore yourself further with touch.

Some guys will be more sensitive than others in different areas, so it’s up to you to find out what works for you. There are no rules, so get to know your own body and find out what floats your boat.

5) Moving south to the perineum

The Perineum is the area in-between your anus and balls. It’s a soft padded area which is sensitive to touch. You can try caressing it or pushing it gently with your spare hand. Again, be creative and see what kind of stimulation, if any, gets you going.

6) The holy grail of the male G-spot

diagram showing the man's g-spotSome cynical folk will say the male g-spot is a lost Atlantis which never existed in the first place.

But there’s no doubt that there are parts inside the anus which respond well to self-stimulation.

For more open-minded and less squeamish guys, one of the greatest ways to masturbate is to include the anus. For others, it’s strictly a one-way street.

If you’re willing to explore here though, then you could be in for an orgasm-increasing treat. Here are some ideas for you:

  • Thoroughly wash both your anus and fingers before starting.
  • Check that your chosen nail (yes – one finger will do) is short and not sharp. File it down if necessary.
  • Add plenty of lubricant on your finger (proper lubricant is better so you don’t accidentally stick something in there which can burn)
  • Rub around the outside of your anus to begin with.
  • Gently insert a finger as far as is comfortable.
  • You can then just keep the finger inside while you masturbate with your other hand as normal, or move it gently in and out. Whatever works for you.
  • The G-Spot is a small area a couple of inches inside. It should feel like a little ball just over an inch in diameter. This is actually the outside of the prostate. You can softly rub this spot if you manage to find it, and if it’s pleasurable.

Stimulating the G-Spot is known in the tantric sex world as a prostate massage, and is an effective way of enhancing orgasm. The key though with all these ideas is to be gentle and soft.

7) Experiment with different positions

If you just sit in your favorite chair or lie on your bed, you’re not going to get anywhere near simulating sex.

And as you’ll find out in part 3, simulating sex is one of the most important masturbation techniques for men.¬†Here are 3 ways you can use your body more effectively:

  • Hold your penis under your body, lying on your bed on top of your hand. Then thrust into your hand.
  • Try kneeling or standing and thrusting into your hand. The idea is to keep your hand still and use your body to move.
  • Change positions from time to time: kneeling, standing, sitting, swapping hands or anything you can think of to add variety.
  • In case you’re wondering – unless you’re a yoga master, have a missing rib or could enter the Guinness book of records for your length, it’s extremely unlikely you’ll be able to do the necessary gymnastics to use your own mouth.

Part C: Sex toys and accessories to enhance the experience


8) The best way to masturbate is with a realistic vagina

A realistic vaginaI shouldn’t need to point out the obvious difference between your hand and a real vagina.

As I said earlier, masturbation isn’t just about personal pleasure. It’s also an investment in your ability to maximize both you and your partner’s pleasure during sex.

That’s why simulating sex as closely as possible is an excellent way to prepare yourself for the real deal. It’s also way more fun and intense than just using your hand.

Take a look at my fleshlight review to find out more about one of the most popular realistic vaginas available.

9) The slippery joys of lubricant

lubricantFor the same reasons that you would use a simulated vagina, lubricant is also an awesome addition to the repertoire of self-pleasure masturbation techniques.

Whether you’re using a toy or just your hands, lubricant will get you another important step closer to the real thing.

A real vagina is wet and slippery, so a dry palm is a poor imitation of that amazing experience. Lubricant also makes it easier to stimulate the head of your penis, and of course explore your anus if you so desire.

Please note that depending on your age, you might not be able to get hold of a realistic vagina or sex lubricant. In which case, don’t stress about it. Yes, they’re a lot of fun, but no, they aren’t absolutely necessary.

10) The double-edged sword of online movies

Movies can be great if used the right way, but they can also be damaging if used without any thought.

As you’ll find out in part 3, rushing masturbation can be a killer of your future sexual performance. And one thing which is sure to increase your arousal is your favorite movie.

If you just switch it on, get yourself as excited as possible and rush to climax, you’re unfortunately training yourself to be a future ‘one minute man’.

However, if you use it as a tool when learning how to masturbate in a controlled way, then it’s a great way to test your ability to keep relaxed and calm.

11) Sex toys Santa won’t deliver

vibrating cock ring for masturbationThere are loads of great sex toys you can use in combination with the masturbation techniques in this article, for example:

  • Cock rings and vibrating cock rings add extra pleasure and also test your control.
  • You can try out a realistic anus or mouth sleeve.
  • Blow-up dolls still exist, believe it or not.
  • There are toys designed to stimulate your G-spot. I’m sure you can imagine what they might look like.
  • If you’re into any clothing fetish, then don’t be afraid to have fun with it. It’s your life!

Part D: Improve your sexual stamina and orgasm intensity

with masturbation techniques you can train yourself to be a stud in the bedroomBetween 20 and 30% of men will suffer from premature ejaculation at some point in their lives.

One of the main reasons guys end up having this problem is because of accidentally training themselves to climax very quickly when masturbating.

But to give most woman an orgasm, on average you need to last for between 10 and 20 minutes during sex.

So you also need to be able to last that long, and preferably longer, when masturbating. These next few sections will explain how you can achieve that.

Please note though that if you already last for ages during sex, or when masturbating, there’s no need to practice these.

But even though there’s no need, some of these techniques can result in you having way more intense and powerful orgasms.

This is for the simple reason that by forcing yourself to delay orgasm, it’s usually more powerful when you finally can’t hold back any longer.

12) The human traffic light: the start and stop method

In terms of techniques, the start and stop method is a really good way to masturbate. The simple version is that you set yourself a time, for example 30 minutes, and you don’t allow yourself to ejaculate until that time is up.

Sounds frustrating? Well it can be, but not as much as the embarrassment of coming within 2 minutes every time you have sex.

13) Kegels – relaxation and the last line of defense

Kegels are a secret weapon you can develop in the safety of your bedroom. They can be used as a last line of defense to stop yourself ejaculating.

But as well as strengthening the muscles for holding back ejaculation, they also teach you which body parts to keep relaxed during sex.

In addition they’re often used to get bigger and harder erections. They can also give you better bladder control when you’ve had too many beers. What’s not to love about that?

14) Breathe and relax

This is more of a side dish to the main course of masturbation techniques. And again it’s on the theme of learning self-control.

Breathing slowly and deeply whilst keeping your body relaxed is a useful skill to learn when masturbating.

The reason being that tension and over-excitement will extinguish your sexual performance faster than a fireman’s hose on a wooden match.

What Next?

By now you’ve probably realized that the best way to masturbate depends on how much you’re willing to experiment. The key is to be open-minded and have some fun along the way!

There’s one idea in this article that I highly recommend exploring. It stems from my firm belief that masturbation can be used to train yourself to become a master in the bedroom.

I really do believe it’s essential to the success of your current or future sex life to learn the techniques discussed in part D.

There are some excellent ejaculation control guides available to help you with this. They provide detailed information about how your body works when aroused, with effective exercises to develop self-control and more powerful orgasms during sex.

Concerned about your penis size?

Many guys have left comments asking about their penis size, asking if their size is normal and how they can increase it. My advice is not to worry about this until you’re at least 18 years old as the penis usually keeps growing until then.

If your penis size is something which bothers you though, there are things you can do about it. Personally, I’m not a fan of male enhancement pills as there are better approaches in my experience.

If you want a safe, natural and effective way to increase your penis size, there’s a good guide called the penis enlargement remedy. I’ve personally read it and followed the system, and can confirm it works well.

  • Hi im 15, and sometimes during the day, even when I’m not horny or anything, I get a weird pain or tingling sensation in my penis, and after that, it starts “coming” but I have no orgasm. The liquid strongly smells of something else other than sperm or semen, and is just clear. Not much comes out, but its enough to make me want to take another shower. It smells bad and I’m worried as to what problem I might have (FYI, I’m a virgin so no STDs or anything like that).

    • Hi Michael
      Sometimes in your teens, the penis does naturally leak sperm, especially if you’re not masturbating regularly. However, the pain and smell seems like something maybe you’d want to get checked out by a doctor just to be on the safe side. I know it can seem embarrassing, but they are very used to dealing with all kinds of things like this.

  • Hello…
    I don’t ever talk about this, but I think I need help… So, when I was 12 or 13, I was in the middle of something and I had an erection. I didn’t know what masturbation was back then, so I never bothered with it. But when I rubbed my thighs against the head, it felt good, I had no idea why, and so I kept doing it. I had an orgasm, and I was in love with the feeling. So since I had no idea how to properly masturbate, and since my penis is curved (and 6 in. When erected) I have been pushing my penis in and out of between my thighs for 5 or 6 years now… Yikes… I didn’t watch porn until about year later, before that just erectal pics, and yes still to this day, but I didn’t learn how to properly masturbate till about 3 years later… And yet I still do the thigh thing since I’m so used to it, only properly masturbating very phew times, since the thigh thing is more well hidden and I think has the same effect… But the thing is… I hold in my… “Load” often because of the way I do it… And by often I mean almost always. Not sure what to do, I don’t wanna tell anyone and I can’t find anything related to it online… Please help!

    • Hi Eth

      First of all, don’t stress about this! Your story isn’t really that unusual – if you read all the comments here (which I don’t recommend as it’ll take too long) you’ll find other guys who have done a very similar thing.
      Really, if you enjoy doing that, there’s nothing wrong with it. But, I’d also recommend getting used to using your hand as that’s what your partner will do in the future. In terms of holding it in, well some say it can be healthy to keep all that sexual energy in. Personally, I think it’s physically healthy to let it out sometimes.

  • My penis is 9 inches. Sometimes when I wear jeans I get awkward boners it peeks through. How can I prevent this?

    • Hi
      It’s a tricky one! You could try wearing tighter pants rather than boxers and hope it keeps it up, then wear a loose fitting jumper over the top. But really, even that won’t totally hide a bulge all the time. You might just have to find ways of dealing with it, such as thinking about something else to try and calm down, or just stopping where you are, sitting down and waiting for it to pass if you have the time and space to do so.

  • Am Winston,21,anytime I see any girls buttocks then my penis erect,and so I masturbate, but within 30seconds the sperm come out,how do I control it to last longer??

    • Hi Jerome
      I suggest trying the techniques I talk about at the end of this article, and also looking around this website where you’ll find lots of useful advice.
