What do we mean ‘how to masturbate’? Why would you need any tips when you’ve been doing this for years right? Because you get lazy! At this point, you and your penis are like an old married couple. Instead of being excited about a quick shuffle under the sheets, you do it out of duty.

Trying a new masturbation technique is like losing your masturbatory virginity all over again. It’s the ‘new girlfriend’ of solo stimulation pursuit. You don’t look at exactly the same porn clip each time you pull your pud, do you? I didn’t think so. Or maybe you do, you boring bastard! Try some new moves and you might surprise yourself how different it can be.

If you want to increase the satisfaction you’ll feel while masturbating, consider picking up a Fleshlight or better yet – a Fleshskin. Fleshskins are masturbation sleeves that you wear around the palm of your hand to spice up your precious tug-time!

How To Masturbate: 5 basic techniques


how to masturbate

The Fist When most men think of how to masturbate, this is likely the only technique they use, if you’re already well-practiced in this, move onto the next one. If not, grab that thing and hold onto it like someone’s trying to steal it.

What are you doing still reading this? If you’ve never choked that turkey before, you’re missing out.

Place the shaft in your palm and fully wrap your hand right around the shaft using all fingers. Now move your hand up and down the shaft, either gently moving your skin back and forth, or sliding your hand up and down the penis. Go to town. If you’re circumcised, you might want to spit on it first. Saliva is the #1 most accessible and popular natural lube of all time, as voted by men since forever.

The Backhander – Likely the last time you received a backhander, it was across the face from your father for being sassy.
This backhander is a lot more pleasant. Similar to the standard ‘Fist’, but instead of an underhand grip you have your palm on the top facing down with your thumb underneath the shaft. In other words, flip that fist and go to town. Note for newbies: not to actual town. Masturbating in public is generally frowned upon.

The ‘OK’ –  Use only your index finger and thumb to wrap around the shaft forming a ring. Same action as The Fist but far less contact. A little less hands-on for the more sensitive among us. You can use either the overhand or underhand position for this one. Be adventurous, mix it up.

The Edward Scissorhands – No, Johnny Depp isn’t going to give you a hand with this one.
Make a scissor shape with your index and middle finger (The same two fingers you use when some putz cuts you off in traffic). The palm of your hand should be facing your body. Now the middle finger goes underneath on the most sensitive area while the index finger gives traction.
This technique is also known as “Prince William” after PW was photographed holding his penis like this to piss at a polo match. Fancy!



The Cigar – Sometimes called The Hook. This one is a bit more tricky, but if you’re looking for variety give it a shot. Make a tight fist, but stick your index finger out in a hook shape and wrap that one around yourself. A variation on this is The Underhook, which will give more friction to the underside.
