How to Get Started on Partner Play: Mutual Masturbation

What is Mutual Masturbation?

You take pleasure in self-love. So does your partner. Each of you enjoys your solo play sesh, but have you ever thought about how electrifying it could be to combine these experiences? Enter mutual masturbation. This practice doesn't conform to a single definition in every relationship. It could be as straightforward as pleasuring yourself while your partner does the same, or it could involve taking turns to watch each other masturbate. 

But why you may ask, would I want to try it with my partner?

A Lesson in Love

Watching your partner pleasure themselves can be incredibly erotic, and more importantly, it's a unique opportunity to learn what they like. What kind of touch sends shivers down their spine? How fast or slow do they prefer? Their hands hold the answers to all these questions and more.

Alternative when intercourse is not an option

For many couples, there are instances where conventional sexual intercourse might be off the table due to health reasons. Whether it's an injury, surgery recovery, or a medical condition, these situations can limit sexual interactions. However, that doesn't mean couples can't engage in intimate acts. Mutual masturbation emerges as a viable and satisfying alternative.

It's All About Pleasure

Let's not forget the most important reason for any sexual act: pleasure. The dual stimulation of pleasuring yourself while watching your partner can lead to powerful orgasms for both parties.

Now, onto the actionable part. How do you start a session of mutual masturbation with your partner?

Set The Scene

Creating a comfortable and enticing atmosphere can go a long way in getting things started. It can be as simple as lowering the lights, playing some sensual music, or lighting a few scented candles. The key is to create an environment where you both feel at ease and ready to explore.

Communication is Key

Like all good things in a relationship, communication is vital. This might seem a little daunting, especially if this is new territory for you and your partner, but trust me, it's worth it. Start by talking to your partner about your desire to try mutual masturbation. Ensure you are both on board and excited to give it a go.

Spice It Up with Toys

While using your own hands can be profoundly satisfying, why not add an extra layer of excitement to the mix? Introducing sex toys like the Nancy's Uno vibrator can kick the pleasure up a notch. The Uno’s user-friendly design is ideal for beginners, while its different speed settings allow both of you to tailor your pleasure journey. 

A Learning Experience

Use this as an opportunity to learn more about your partner's preferences. Watch their movements, their reactions, and the way they touch themselves. Encourage them to do the same for you. This experience will not only heighten the intimacy in your relationship but will also make future sexual encounters even better.

Let’s recap

To many, the world of mutual masturbation might seem like uncharted territory. But, when navigated with care, communication, and consent, it can open up new pathways to pleasure, intimacy, and understanding in your relationship. So, what are you waiting for? It's time to explore and have some fun!
