I’m starting back with a classic article on a “July Challenge” that I set myself for fun, but thought it would make a great challenge for all! (and a decent article!). I realize we’re 11 days into July but if you’re really keen you can just go 11 days into August…
Challenge: Masturbate your way through the month
Are you finding that you have to do the same things every time in order to orgasm? Or maybe it’s easier to just do the same things every time because it works? Maybe it’s time to get to know yourself or your partner better with a little July Challenge… We’re all guilty of it – the usual, the standard, the routine, doing the same things… Whether it be during masturbation, during sex with a partner or friend, or even in less sexual aspects of life – we are all guilty of at some point doing the same things every time. Granted, it’s because we know that they work. Maybe you know that if you put your We-Vibe tango vibrator flat side down, just above your clit you can have an orgasm in less than 3 minutes EVERY time, or if you manipulate your Chrome Curve at that particular angle, and thrust as fast as your poor little arms can thrust you’ll be done in 30 seconds… but what about those of us who’re feeling like we should mix up our routine, or try something different It’s time to set yourself a challenge, and what better time to start than the beginning of a new month. Open your mind to the possibility of trying new sex things whether it be with a partner, friend or by yourself. Challenge yourself to masturbate faster or maybe even slower. Get yourself out of that rut!
Here is an example of a weekly sex challenge that makes sex a little bit more interesting:
Below you will find a list of things to try to get yourself out of your Masturbation routine:
First and foremost: Switch up the kind of orgasms that you typically enjoy. Do you find that you can only orgasm from clitoral stimulation? Or maybe only from G Spot stimulation? Maybe you need both simultaneously – either way, change it up. Spend some time getting to know your body and practice, (yes practice), stimulating other parts of your body. Most likely, at first you will find it hard to orgasm, if at all. This is most likely a mental obstacle so make sure you’re really relaxed and have enough time to really get to know yourself. Try having multiple orgasms, or a prostate orgasm (for males). Try having an orgasm from thought only, trust me – it’s a thing to experience <— definitely worth a read.
Change your environment: get out of your bedroom and try masturbating in a different environment. Start with the bathroom, or the living room, then try getting more adventurous like in the garden or in your car. Trust me, there’s no better thrill than the slight chance that you might get caught!
Find a new ‘turn on’: What do you normally do to get yourself in the mood? Watch porn? Read erotica? Or maybe even nothing at all. Switch it up and find something new that you’ve never even thought of using as stimulus before. Pay attention to how it affects your sexual response and be surprised when you aren’t a one trick pony!
Go back to basics: We’re all guilty of using the same tools every time to get ourselves off. Go back to the basics. Use your hands and trust the fact that people have been using the same method for centuries – be patient… if you’re a tango gal, don’t be surprised when your fingers don’t start vibrating at the touch of the button. Refer to tip number 1 and be patient. If you ONLY use your hands, do the opposite of what I said and get your ass into your closest Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres and grab yourself a versatile toy like the Mona 2 and experiment with what feels right.
These are just a few ideas to get you started… If you don’t do anything halfheartedly (guilty as charged!) get yourself a calendar and set daily challenges, or even weekly challenges to overcome. Or if you’re a little too busy for that, set yourself mental challenges to overcome. HAVE FUN, and don’t be surprised when you realise there are so many more ways to masturbate than you originally thought.
