Solo sex adventures: How to arouse yourself
If you want to explore your solo sex life with a bit of adventure, then perhaps it’s time to take control and embark on a solo sex journey. With a little effort and creativity, self-pleasure can become much more than just masturbation. Self-arousal is an important component of self-care and can have a positive impact on your life. Whether you are curious about exploring your own body and mind or feel a bit overwhelmed by the thought, the following tips and tricks will help you get started on your solo sex adventures.
Arousing yourself begins with setting the mood. Start by tidying up your sacred space and create a relaxing ambience. Incense, candles, and soft music can all help set a relaxing mood. You can even splurge on new lingerie, wear a stimulating scent and spritz some pheromone spray to really get in the mood. More importantly, give yourself permission and space to fully explore your desires and go at your own pace.
The best way to kick off your solo sex adventure is by trying out breathing exercises. This is especially beneficial if you feel stressed, anxious or disconnected from your body. Breathing allows you to establish a connection with yourself, while helping to reduce stress and increase energy. Begin by taking deep, long breaths. Concentrate on filling your lungs with oxygen, while directing your focus to the physical sensations in your body. As you keep breathing, bring your attention to your genitals, feeling them pulse gently outward as you inhale, and gently inward as you exhale. Let the breath work like a wave, start at your toes and travel all the way up your body to the top of your head and back down again.
Another important step in arousing yourself is to learn the art of self-massage. Incorporate sensual self-massage as part of your solo sex rituals. Start with your neck and shoulders, from there move down your back, your arms and all the way to your feet. Establish a rhythm and use slow and gentle strokes, with a slight pressure being applied to the muscles. Self-massage can help you build your body awareness and further deepen your connection with yourself.
When the mood is right, it’s time to focus on stimulating your senses. Stimulating the senses is another way to increase sensations throughout the body and can help you become fully aroused. Start exploring the effect of different textures, such as hands-free toys and massage oils, how do they feel on your body? Incorporating scents and tastes into your self-pleasuring practices can also bring pleasure to a whole different level. Burning incense, enjoying your favorite dessert or herbal tea, as well as tasting your arousal are all ways to experience even more pleasure as you explore your own body.
Having established a connection with yourself and your desires, it’s time to transition to more explicit arousing activities. If you’re a beginner, don’t feel the need to rush the process. Test out different techniques and find the ones that work for you. Masturbation can be a great way to explore and learn more about your body. Before you start touching, use your breath and explore little circles on your skin, tracing your inner thighs and around your bellybutton. As you transition to pleasuring yourself, try different strokes and circles and pay attention to what your body likes.
Besides masturbating, exploring other ways of finding sexual pleasure is key. If you’re feeling adventurous, there are numerous devices and toys that can help you add more excitement to your solo sex. From vibrators and dildos to vibrating rings, sex toys can open up a world of new sensory experiences. These tools can help you target and explore different areas of your body, as well as enhance your sexual pleasure. Have fun and experiment!
Have a kinky fantasy? Make it come to life. Practicing BDSM, engaging in roleplaying and introducing props is a great way to arouse yourself. Begin exploring different fantasies and imagine yourself in different roles and activities. Maybe it’s a teacher and student scenario or a nurse and patient fantasy that tickles your fantasy. Taking yourself to a different realm and having fun with your imagination can usher in a whole new realm of pleasure.
Once you’ve explored your different fantasies and added toys and props to your solo sex, it’s time to press on your pleasure points. Your nipples, inner thighs, back of the knees and neck area are all very sensitive areas and can provide pleasure when gently caressed. Add some stimulating lubricants or massage oils and explore your body, pressing and rubbing your pleasure points can take your arousal to the next level.
No matter what kind of solo sex adventure you choose, remember to stay connected with yourself and your body and explore your pleasure as you go. Incorporate breathing techniques and mental imagery to your solo sex practice and be patient. Don’t be afraid to take your time and experiment with whatever comes naturally without feeling guilty or ashamed. Solo sex exploration is a journey in self-discovery and pleasure and should be treated as such. Once you finally let go of all the fear and inhibitions and constantly explore what your body likes and responds to, you’ll be surprised at how much pleasure you can give yourself.
