7 Places You Should Try Masturbating

There's a lot of discussion on the best places to have sex, but I want to give solo sex some attention. What are the best places to masturbate? And that's not just because I'm so single I drew faces on my potatoes so we could have a chat before I baked them. It's because while you often learn how to be good in bed by learning what your partner likes, with masturbation you are very much are your own. But there are still good masturbation techniques you should know, and it's just as important to mix things up in your alone life as your sex life. (It's really true, if you orgasm the same way over and over again during masturbation it can make it more difficult to finish in other ways, both during masturbation and sex.)

So while you can try different positions or different toys, you can also make masturbation a little more interesting by changing up the locations. It's your own little solo adventure, but without the massive backpack and irritating stories when you get home. And with all of the health benefits of masturbation, I think anything that gives you the opportunity to do more of it is definitely a good thing.

Here are seven places you should try masturbating, because an orgasm a day is the way forward:

1. In The Shower

It's actually the perfect place for some solo sex, if you haven't tried it already. You're already relaxed, and you can play with the temperature and water pressure as much as you'd like — or bring a waterproof vibrator along for the wet ride.

2. In Airplane

The mile high club is not a couples-only thing. In fact, going solo in the sky is about a million times easier than trying to have sex in those tiny bathrooms with the weird flushing toilets. If you're trapped on a flight for 13 hours, you're going to want to break it up somehow.

3. Outside

Obviously not anywhere crowded. Or around any people, you don't want to be pervy (or do anything illegal). But if there's somewhere private enough to have sex outside then it's also somewhere you can clitorize (my favorite word for it). The same freedom/naughtiness factor that makes doing it outside so much fun applies to masturbating, so give it a go.

4. In A Hotel

EVERYTHING IS BETTER IN A HOTEL. Soap. Towels. Orgasms. I don't know why, but scientifically speaking everything is 4,000 percent more luxurious in a hotel, especially when it's between the crispiest of white sheets. And it makes traveling solo even more fun.

5. A Jacuzzi

Any kind of water masturbation is great— it's the fun of having sex in the water but without the complicated positions and fear of slipping and breaking your nose. Pool, ocean, lake, I recommend giving them all a go, but jacuzzis tubs can be really fun because... well, water jets. That's all I need to say, right? And there are plenty of waterproof vibrators to up your game.

6. College Library

PhD and graduate students around the world will know this to be true. Sometimes during the dissertation writing marathons it just has to happen. It sounds weird, but it's more fun than your car, which is apparently a really popular masturbation location.

7. With A Partner

In bed may be the obvious choice to masturbate, but if you haven't tried masturbating with your partner it's definitely time to give it a go. I think watching porn together is really hot, but you can also go without. It's an interesting way to learn what you're partner enjoys, and ups the suspense and tension before sex.
