Have you ever pleasured yourself? Do you know what makes you tingle all over?

Masturbation is one of the great pleasures of life. It is a fantastic stress-buster and helps you to relax completely, cope better with life’s challenges and sleep better at night. It is also very empowering to know your body’s intimate secrets and to be able to produce so much pleasure on your own. Furthermore, it helps for a great sex life. Think about it - how can you expect your partner to press all the right buttons, if you don't know where they are yourself?

Most men are comfortable with masturbation – after all they start playing with their tools from an early age! Many women, however, feel uncomfortable about it, as if it’s something “dirty” only bad girls do. There could be many reasons for this, but the simplest explanation is that most people just don’t talk about it. It’s a taboo subject in many homes and often only mentioned in a few boys jokes on the side.

Don’t miss out on all the fun. Masturbation is good for you.

Find a private space, set the mood and let the games begin...

If you're a man and you’ve got two hands, just do what comes naturally. If you're a woman, the path to pleasure is slightly more subtle. Here's a helping hand:

  • Discover where your erogenous zones are
  • Massage your inner thighs
  • Stroke your tummy and your breasts
  • Play with your nipples
  • Find out what makes your body tingle all over
  • As the excitement builds, let your fingers move south
  • Touch the sensitive parts of your inner labia and start stimulating your clitoris

Don’t know where your clitoris is? Follow this map:

Guide your fingers to the top of your vaginal opening and explore the area gently. Gently press and circle with your fingers - you will immediately know when you found the spot. Once you're there, tap your clitoris and gradually increase the speed until your body explodes.
