Keeping the spark alive in the bedroom is crucial for a healthy relationship. One fantastic way to do this is through mutual masturbation.
While you may be accustomed to masturbation being a solo act, there are many exciting and creative ways to get your partner in on the fun and make pleasure mutual. Here are some exciting mutual masturbation positions you can try, whether you are together with your partner or in a long-distance relationship.
6 mutual masturbation positions
If you are looking to experiment sexually, mutual masturbation is a great way to connect with your partner, and here are a few great position to begin:
Lie down next to each other, face to face. As you touch yourselves, allow the intimacy of staring into each other’s eyes to heighten the arousal and intimacy. One of the best things about this position is it encourages closeness between you and your partner. Observing each other in the throes of pleasure creates a powerful bond.
Add a twist to this position by throwing a vibrator into the mix. Crescendo 2 stimulates multiple erogenous zones at the same time so you can have more powerful, blended orgasms (and give your partner quite the show).
2. The 69
You are most likely familiar with 69 as a sex position, but it also makes for an arousing mutual masturbation position. There are two variations of this repurposed 69; you can either lay on top of your partner - facing opposite directions or lay on your sides facing opposite directions in a sideways 69. These 69 variations give you both a close-up and intimate view of each other’s genitals as you masturbate.
3. Show and tell
Sit facing each other with your legs entwined, then take turns masturbating while the other watches. If being in the spotlight makes you nervous, take the pressure off by using a vibrator to add pleasurable sensations that take you out of your head and into the heat of the moment.
This position is great for visual learners, as you can watch and learn how your partner prefers to touch themselves. It also cultivates vulnerability and openness, as it takes trust to open yourself up to someone in such an intimate way (quite literally). It also lets you have fun and be playful with your partner as you take turns basking in the spotlight.
4. The voyeur
One partner sits or lies comfortably while the other partner puts on a sensual show. The observing partner – or voyeur – can touch themselves as they enjoy the positively provocative view of their partner masturbating in any number of devious ways and positions.
If you get off by watching, this position creates a thrilling experience that can heighten your arousal and excitement. Bonus points if your partner is using a compact, portable vibrator like Poco to tease themselves to climax, leaving you absolutely breathless.
5. The triangle
Lie beside your partner with your heads as close together as they can get, while both your legs are spread, forming a triangle. This position allows you both to touch yourselves while being close enough to your partner to encourage intimacy but distant enough to heighten anticipation.
This position doesn’t give a direct view of each other, but it encourages you both to focus on the senses of touch and sound. If you really want to make some noise for your partner, use a powerful vibrator to stimulate your erogenous zones until you’re singing.
6. The lap dance
Who doesn’t love a lap dance? Here, one of you sits on a chair or the edge of a bed while the other partner straddles a lap. Play with facing each other or facing away from each other.
If you are on top, you get to touch yourself to your heart’s content while your partner watches. In this position both partners can play with the power dynamic, making this lap dance incredibly erotic. Kick it up a notch by using Tenuto 2 to enhance the experience. Whether wearing Tenuto 2 on the penis or using Tenuto 2 to arouse the vulva and clitoris, prepare yourself for an explosive ending.
