Masturbation can provide a very satisfying release and be a great way to unwind at the end of the day (or in the middle or at the start or any time quite honestly). And even if you are a professional at solo-sex, this round-up of the best female masturbation positions (or anyone with a vulva specifically) could add a spice of variety into your usual routine. After all the best way to improve your solo session is by mixing things up from the sensations you love to the erogenous zones you touch. 

Experiment with temperatures, lubes, sex toys. If you usually like hard sensations try your hand at softer rubbing. Your body will become accustomed to a variety of sensations rather than always doing it the same way. 

By experimenting with different positions whilst masturbating you may just discover a whole new world of pleasure awaits. Here’s a round-up of the best female masturbation positions to spark your imagination and spice up your technique.

Your First Time

Chances are this might just be your go-to female masturbation position. Just because it’s the most obvious one doesn’t mean it’s any less awesome. Lie on your back with open legs - go with what feels good whether that’s penetration or clitoral stimulation. Enhance each of these sensations with plenty of lube for a silky feeling.

Now it’s time to explore. Try bending backward or forwards, changing your angle, and experimenting with different speeds as you move up and down. Alternatively, if you would rather experiment without sex toys then lube up your fingers and touch yourself - learning what feels good.
