How to make female masturbation 500% better

You deserve it.

By Katie Stow

We know, we know, it's so easy to let your sneaky self-lovin' session fall into a snoozy routine. Once you get a pattern down-pat that's guaranteed to get your rocks off, there's very little drive to shake things up.

But we really think that there's nothing in the bedroom that can't be improved — and that statement still stands even when you're wanking all on your own!

So here we've rounded up five top tips to spice up your masturbation sessions. Go forth and invest in your alone time, folks.

1. Never underestimate lube

Hate to quote Sebastian from Little Mermaid, but it really is better down where it's wetter. So grab some lube and slip, slap, slop to increase slide and reduce friction.

…Just be sure to check the ingredients to ensure there's no nasty sugars in there that may cause a yeast infection.

If you can, always go for a lube with a water-based formula so it can be used with all sex toys (and it won't compromise condoms, in case you recruit in a fella for your sex sesh).

2. Grab a clitoral vibrator

According to Lovehoney's sexpert, "Once you're wet, an external vibrator will help to awaken all the external hotspots like your clitoris. This will encourage circulation, making you extra sensitive, and will get the erectile tissue in your clitoris working, making it bigger and easier to find".

So, lube up and grab a vibrator designed to please your clit! We recommend going for a smaller model that will allow you to focus on one section at a time.

3. Play around with a dildo

Your hands can only do so much, so why not upgrade from your fingers to a ~larger~ model — like a big old dildo! Dildos can get real close and personal with your G-spot, A-spot and C-spot, so they are amazing to experiment with when you want to indulge in some alone time.

We recommend going for a dildo that's angled to hit your G-spot (AKA one that looks a bit wonky), and preferably one that you can use hands-free so you can keep your fingers free for some digital fun.

4. Don’t ignore your booty

Using a butt plug during masturbation can enhance sensations in a number of ways. Not only does it offer a secondary point of stimulation — which can enhance pleasure and speed up orgasms — but it will also help to angle your dildo to your G-spot.

If you're feeling adventurous, do a combo of a butt plug with your vibrator and lube to guarantee some zinger masturbation moments. However, if you're a little worried about deep diving into the world of anal play, opt for a beginner's butt plug. Shop around for the best options in this handy gallery:

5. Pay attention to your nips

As Anna Farris once said, "The nipples are the eyes of the chest," so they shouldn't be ignored! So many people neglect their nips during masturbation, but they are actually one of the fastest ways to produce oxytocin — AKA the hormone essential for climaxing.

If you're feeling like a bit of a lazy gal and don't want to do all the rubbing yourself, then hit up some nipple clamps to do all the hard work for you!
