Today’s challenge takes solo play one step further.
And this one's a fun one…because you’ll get to use a toy! Using a “pleasure aid” like a vibrator or stroker may be new to you, but no matter your gender, genitalia, or orientation, a sex toy can be a game-changer for your self-pleasure sessions.
You probably have a routine when you masturbate. That’s cool—but the whole point of this challenge is to get you out of your comfort zone. And if you've never tried a toy, bringing one in will add another layer of sensation that might actually change your whole masturbation situation. After all, sex toys do what human beings can’t—your hand can’t swirl or jiggle for hours in the way that something battery-powered can, for example. That’s their job—and they do it well. So pick a toy and start having fun!
Think about what sensations you enjoy. Pinpoint pressure or broad pressure? Something buzzy or tingly? Textured or smooth? Get a sex toy that mimics that type of sensation or movement. And then go for it!
- Masturbate for 15-20 minutes with a toy you’ve never tried before.
- Write down 3 things that make you feel particularly good (and be descriptive when writing them down— say what it is that makes you feel good and why that is)
- Write down 1 - 2 things that you don’t enjoy (same goes here, be descriptive and write down what it is you don’t like and why)
- It may feel weird and that’s ok: This is different. Different can be good. Go with it and see where it takes you (hopefully to orgasm, of course, but we also mean that in the bigger sense 😉).
- If one toy doesn’t work, try another: Don’t feel locked into one toy experience! If possible, have a couple of them on hand so you can switch it up if needed.
- Let go: It’s just you and yourself in this experience, so there’s no one to hear the noises you make or see your O face. No reason to feel self-conscious or embarrassed. As much as you can, really let go and let yourself feel these new feelings. Breathe, relax, and give in to the fun new sensations from the toy.
This challenge is all about play. So close your eyes, grab your toy, and enjoy!
