Our team has over a decade of experience in the sexual wellness field and are experts i Hands on, practical experience — this is our expertise. We may think we live in a sexually liberal society. In many ways we do. The awkwardness will surely ensue. Behind all the huffing and puffing, there are some confused guys out there. No one ever told you that there were several different ways to masturbate. You learned whatever method was fastest to get off before your dorm roommate came back from practice or before Mom got suspicious of how long you were in the bathroom and came knocking on the locked door.

The first time I ever masturbated, I got really lucky. Not everyone is a right-before-bed person: you might be an am-on-the-weekends person. Get yourself all set up in whatever way you need. Is it too hot or cold? Too quiet? Too dark or too light? And turn your phone to do not disturb.
Female masturbation is often seen as a taboo subject. Despite research showing that women masturbate as frequently as men, it's still not a topic that all females openly discuss. The Swedes have even created a new term for female masturbation in an attempt to stop women from being put off talking about the topic by the usual male-associated words. We spoke to women about their own experiences of masturbation and got some expert tips on how to make things work for you, including from Strawberry Siren, former Miss Burlesque Australia and the creator of the Pussy Play Masterclass, a workshop on the art of playing with yourself. Understanding the different bits of your body is the first step towards successful stimulation. My advice would be to explore, get to know what things feel like, and if it feels good, keep going! To help us on our quest to become more familiar with our anatomy, Lisa has provided us with simple, straightforward definitions for some of our bodily bits from her book Love Your Lady Landscape.
