You may think that mindful masturbation is an interesting concept but you’re not sure if it applies to you, or you’re intrigued but not sure the benefits would be worth changing your routine. Or maybe you’re rolling your eyes and thinking that this whole thing is just taking the mindfulness trend a step too far. Whatever the case, it can’t hurt to ask yourself some of these questions to see if you’re getting the most out of your masturbation routine.
- Do you masturbate with the goal of getting off as quickly as possible, but want partnered sex to last longer?
- Do you use the same exact masturbation routine every time, but want your partnered sex life to include variety and new experiences?
- Have you trained your body through masturbation to respond to one very specific style of stimulation, making it more difficult to experience arousal and achieve orgasm through varied and different stimulation during partnered sex?
- Are you so “auto-pilot” about your masturbation routine that you feel disconnected and not fully present in the experience?
