masturbation o-diaries

Naturally, the most important accessory you need for masturbating is yourself. You, a quiet place and time make up the perfect recipe for some quality you-time. But that doesn’t mean that there aren’t some simple ways to spice up your solo sex. We have a few suggestions …

#1. Cool down in the summer heat

When it is really hot outside, there are a few sex toy accessories that can keep you cool. Try some of these:

  • Ice cubes

Cold, moist, sparkling: An ice cube not only cools but also makes the skin more sensitive. And that intensifies the pleasure. Try it!

  • Cold showers

Although these are usually used to cool things off, you can still maintain the mood with just adjusting the water from hot to cooler in small increments. You’ll get to cool down (with your fave waterproof toy) without freezing the mood.

  • Cooling lubricant

Try putting the lube in the refrigerator before using it with you If sex toys. This is a great tip to keep cool in summer.

  • Cooling snacks for a refreshment in between

A solo sex marathon can be quite exhausting, especially when it is so hot … How about a small picnic in bed? There are snacks that cool and make us hot at the same time. Ice-cold watermelon, grapes from the freezer or – if you dare – chili. This spicy treat not only makes you hot, it also cools the body from the inside thanks to capsaicin.

#3. The basics

Are you flying solo and want help to build a little atmosphere? There are a few things that you should always have at hand if you want to make your you-time particularly exciting:

  • A spicy playlist to set the mood

Masturbating without music is a bit like pizza without cheese: It’s okay but wow, it could be so much better! A really good beat is also handy when you need to find your own solo sex rhythm. So make your very own masturbation playlist and if you have a We-Vibe toy, you can even link your toy to your playlist and have the vibrations rumble in time with the beat.

  • Really good headphones

Do you have annoyingly loud neighbors? Roommates that watch TV at all hours of the night at any volume they want? Well, that can ruin the moment. To avoid these annoying interruptions, simply listen to your playlist via noise-canceling headphones and escape to your own private world.

  • A cozy blanket

While weighted blankets are used for anti-anxiety treatments and can help you have a super restful sleep, they’re also great for smothering the sound of your toys. With a cozy blanket, you can snuggle in and enjoy your toy without worrying about making too much noise or attracting attention.

#3. The Upgrades

Solo sex with your hands is fun but what about adding a few fun toy accessories to help take it to the next level?

  • Costumes/Accessories

Even if you’re playing alone, it can be fun to do a little role play with yourself. While we don’t mean “Quick, put on the cliché sexy nurse costume”, it might be fun to explore something with texture. For example, a feather boa might be fun to play with and can be used to heighten those sensitive spots.

  • Sex toys

There’s a whole wide world of options out there. Clitoral stimulator, rabbit vibrator, anal plug or cock ring, no matter what you prefer, there is the perfect sex for everyone that can augment your masturbation routine. The best way to find out is to try them out for yourself.

  • Sources of inspiration

A little inspiration can upgrade your solo sex. Try some erotic literature, a hot audiobook or a sexy movie. Whether you’re into porn or something a little more lowkey, watching a sexy movie can be a great way to help you create new fantasies, as well as think out of the box for your own solo-sex storyline.
