Alone tonight? Getting into a sensual mood by yourself isn’t something sleazy that only weirdo’s in raincoats do in dark alleys. On the contrary, exploring your body and its pleasures is a natural part of many people’s sexual lives. But, just like when you’re with a partner, solo sexy times don’t have to be goal oriented. Why rush to the finish line when you could take the scenic route?

Get comfortable – clothed or naked – relax and do whatever makes you feel turned on. It may be listening to some throaty jazz singer, watching an erotic movie, or reading a cheesy bodice-ripping romance. There’s no judgement here, with only you to see. Touch yourself gently or get a firm grip and enjoy the pleasure that builds up in your body. Whether you reach a climax or not, it definitely beats doing the washing up.
