What is Mutual Masturbation?

We all love a good masturbation session: flicking the bean, jerking off, polishing the pearl, whatever you wanna call it! Now that we’re well into the month of Masturbation May, we wanna turn things UP and dive into mutual masturbation and really just answer the question…

What is Mutual Masturbation?

Essentially, mutual masturbation refers to when partners physically stimulate each other’s genitals. You can do this by using your hands or adding some fun sex toys to the mix. There’s also another definition of mutual masturbation and that is when two or more people simply masturbate in each other’s presence. So they don’t actually come into physical contact. People also refer to this kind of masturbation as “mutual pleasuring”.

Main Benefits

  • Discovering Pleasure Outside of Penetration

Mutual masturbation allows you and your partner to explore and discover a new way of pleasuring each other without penetration being involved. This can end up being amazing for connecting with your partner in an erotic masturbation session. If you’re feeling bored of penetrative sex and want to spice things up in the bedroom, this is a great option to consider!

  • Lowers Risk of Sexually-Transmitted Infections (STIs)

If you and your partner are merely masturbating in each other’s presence, the risk of STIs is obviously reduced to zero. Then of course, if you and your partner are pleasuring each other physically, the risk of STIs may not be non-existent but it’s definitely significantly reduced.

  • Better Orgasms

It isn’t always the case that you’ll get an orgasm from penetrative sex or other forms of sex, but with mutual masturbation, you’re almost always going to climax. Why? You get to do it yourself! You can also instruct your partner on what to do, so the control is in your hands (literally).

  • Learning How to Pleasure Your Partner

This has to be one of the best benefits of this kind of masturbation! This leads to increased intimacy and allows for intense bonding between you and your partner.
