If you follow many sex blogs, you might have noticed May has been designated as Masturbation Month – an annual online celebration promoting a sex-positive attitude towards self-stimulation.

Play can be so much more than just rubbing yourself to climax. So in this post, I’m going to give you some ideas on how to utilise your imagination when playing, and how you might incorporate some of the kinky activities described in these stories, in order to achieve some amazing playtimes…

One to bookmark and keep!

1 Tease

Rather than starting your play by immediately pleasuring yourself, why not try teasing yourself for a while first?

Try the Sensations game, which encourages you to explore every part of your body without lingering too long on the naughty bits.

You might also try the Words game, try reading down the lists of hundreds of spanking related phrases and not touching yourself, or allowing yourself just a fleeting touch after every 20 lines.

2 Inspection

If you enjoyed teasing, try going one step further and visually inspecting yourself – the idea being to explore your own body whilst experiencing minimal physical stimulation.

The Inspections for Girls game lists 12 areas, in order of escalating intimacy. How might challenge yourself to see how far you can get before your willpower falters and you begin to start masturbating.

Inspection games are ideal opportunities for some in-your-head roleplaying, imagining you’re being inspected by a school nurse, or as part of a sex slave auction, or a strip-search. And if you don’t have female anatomy, there’s nothing to stop you imagining you do.

You can also incorporate your own favourite fantasy situation when playing the Bottom Inspection game, which anyone of any gender can play.

3 Denial

If teasing and inspection turn you on, why not see how far you can stretch your self-control?

The Squirm game challenges you to watch something erotic and resist touching yourself for as long as possible, with the possible jeopardy of punishment if you falter too soon. Another means of denial is the Ups and Downs game, where you can imagine you’re standing in front of your strict disciplinarian, obeying their stern instructions…

4 Self-Spanking

Just as vibrators stimulate nerves in the genitals, spankings stimulate nerves in the bottom. Both cause a pleasurable tingling – though the impact of the latter can be more intense, a sensation, that can be felt across several layers of your skin, its tingles accompanied by a fiery heat and pleasurable sting.

So I consider self-spanking a form of masturbation, a form of self-love rather than self-mortification, a complementary physical sensation to the joys of genital rubbing. And as those who’ve experienced a spanking already know, a smacked bottom serves to intensify pleasures elsewhere.

An easy introduction to self-spanking is to smack your bottom at appropriate moments when reading a spanking story, just as described in the Naked Reading game.

Those craving a more intense whacking might try creating their own Spanking Machine. I’d also recommend reading through the reader submissions to this blog, many of which beautifully describe their own self-spanking experiences, which you may find inspiring.

5 Dildo Play

If you own sex toys, why not mix in a little imagination when you play with them?

For instance, if you have a suction base for your toy, try the Dildo Ritual game, and imagination yourself participating in some profane erotic rite.

A suction dildo or a butt plug can also be used to play the Throne game, as you sit regally on your intrusion, watching activities staged for Your Majesty’s pleasure. Suction dildos also work well on walls, so why not try recreating the scene described in the Fucking on a Train game?

Remember, properly lubed, wide-base dildos can also be used to stretch and penetrate your bottom. So if you haven’t yet tried anal masturbation, you might be surprised how much you enjoy it.

6 Panty Pulling

Another means of playing that doesn’t require any toys is tugging your panties up tight, creating pleasurable friction against your crotch, perineum and bottom crevice.

If you’re new to this way of playing, you might want to try it whilst reading a story, as described in the Secret Reading game.

A more intense experience can be achieved by creating your very own Panty Pulling Chair, which as you can see, can lead to some very enjoyable experiences.

7 Porn Remixing

Many like to play whilst looking at sexy images, but why stop there? Rather than just consuming images passively, why not unleash your creativity, and remix them?

One idea is explained in the Drawing Lines game – trace a background picture first (say, of a girl standing in the corner of the headmaster’s study), and then switch to a new image (say, of yourself) and use the same paper, you’ll be able to create a composite and add yourself to the original image. Choose any imagery you like, the only limit is your imagination.

Or, if you prefer erotic stories to pictures, why not wank as you write a coda to your favourite story, perhaps continuing the tale and imagining what happened, or writing a confession. Then, why not send what you’ve written to the story’s author, I guarantee they’ll be delighted to hear how their words inspired you.

8 Improvisation

Once you’ve developed a taste for creative masturbation, you might want to start incorporating items from around your home into your play.

One idea that just needs string and clothes-pegs is the Clothesline game. Another is to fetch some icecubes and tease your sensitive places.

Or, if you have a sturdy pole like a mop or broom handle you can try the Straddle game. This also offers an opportunity for a more meditative experience, rather than chasing a climax, just let yourself balance on the pole, close your eyes and become aware of your breathing. Feel the sensations across your body, your weight pressing into the pole, balance and savour the developing erotic tension.

9 Being Adventurous

Finally, some ideas for those wanting an edgier, more intense masturbation experience.

One idea is described in the Naughty Panties  game, where you’ll write a symbol on your underwear each time you do something sexy outside your bedroom, to create a wearable record of your erotic escapades.

Masochists seeking more intense physical sensations might be interested in the Figging with Ginger game, whilst those turned on by shame and humiliation might enjoy the erotic embarrassment of the Wet Panties games.

Variety is indeed the spice of life. So be bold, try new toys and sensations, experiment, remix and incorporate ideas from your own fantasies, your favourite porn and your most cherished stories.

And however you play, whether alone or with another, in front of a mirror or under the covers… enjoy!
