Some of the benefits of masturbation include increased endorphins, improved sleep, reduced stress and increased self-esteem.

Masturbation is a simple way to boost our well-being inside and out. After all, even the World Health Organization considers pleasure a human right. It is completely normal and healthy for everyone to experience deep pleasure and intense orgasms.

Hopefully, at this point most women have realised that masturbation is not a dirty word and certainly not something only men do. If you’re experiencing any shame, please know that most women are doing it and there is absolutely nothing shameful about it! It’s true that our libidos often decrease after menopause, however engaging in a bit of self-pleasure is a wonderful way to remind ourselves that we are inherently sexual beings, and we deserve to release stress and pressure by playing with ourselves.

Here are ten ways to enjoy masturbation to the fullest during your menopause:

1. Create the right atmosphere

It’s your solo party so make it an enjoyable one! Turn down the lights, light some candles, and play your favourite tunes. That way you’ll be fully relaxed and ready to experience the O’s you deserve!

2. Keep it quiet

One of the biggest distractions that can prevent you from experiencing an orgasm is being worried that someone might hear you. Choose a vibrator that is quiet, if it’s not, then cover yourself with a duvet. If needed, increase the volume of the music. To be completely sure you won’t get interrupted, you might want to even lock the door. It’s your special solo time so you deserve to protect it!

3. Lubricate and moisturise

Don’t make the rookie mistake of skipping the lube. This is a recipe for pain and friction. Make sure you apply plenty of lubrication such as the water-based Motion Lotion;  which is completely natural, making it ideal for use with all types of sex toys. To enhance your pleasure further, consider using a vaginal moisturiser. This will significantly improve your vaginal dryness and will make it easier for you to orgasm.

4 Don’t rush it

It might be tempting to crank up your sex toy up to the highest intensity setting. However, if you decrease the setting and take a little longer instead, your orgasm will be much stronger. Pleasure increases when there is enough blood flow to your genitals, which takes time. So slow it down and you’ll be rewarded!

5. Explore different sensations

Try to touch different erogenous zones – your nipples, neck, thighs and anus – while stimulating your vagina or clitoris. If you want to experience a very powerful climax, try stimulating your clitoris and G-spot at the same time. That means you’ll technically be experiencing two orgasms at the same time by using a rabbit and a bullet type of sex toys for example. You can see more tips on “The New Hot” – there is a whole section dedicated to masturbation and sex.

6. Try different poses

It’s the same when you’re having partnered sex. It’s always a good idea to try different poses such as lying on your back or your stomach, sitting or standing. When you’re moving and touching your body in different ways, you’ll be experiencing maximum pleasure.

7. Give yourself a massage

Try giving yourself a slow, sensual massage with massage oil or body lotion. That way you will get yourself into the mood even more, you’ll relax your whole body and will therefore experience more intense pleasure.

8. Use the shower head or your fingers

Not everyone has a sex toy, which is perfectly fine (although you’d be missing out!). You can simply use your hands (make sure you wash them thoroughly before) or your shower head. If you have a bath, you can lie down on your back and open your legs feeling the stream of water between your legs.

Alternatively, you can stand up under the shower and hold it directing the stream towards your clit for the easiest orgasm.

9. Try edging

Especially when you have more time (and privacy) on your hands, it’s worth trying the so-called “edging” –  the practice of stopping yourself from reaching orgasm right when you’re on the cusp — the metaphorical “edge” right before you fall off the cliff into sexual climax.

Whenever you feel that you are getting close to a climax, slow down. Then reach the edge once more, repeating this until you are ready to relax completely. When you surrender fully, your orgasm will be extremely strong!

10. Breathe deeply

Slow, deep breathing activates the parasympathetic nervous system which decreases the heart rate and dilates blood vessels, reducing your overall blood pressure. This makes you more relaxed and is highly likely to lead to more intense orgasms.

Masturbation: final words

Hopefully, these ten tips have inspired you to masturbate more often. A good rule of thumb is doing it 3–4 times a week. This helps with vaginal dryness as it is a great way to lubricate the vagina. You’ll find it that the more you do it, the easier it becomes for you to climax. Clitoral stimulation is key for orgasm for most women (bullet type of vibrators are perfect for this). Do what works for you. It might take a few times, but relax and go at your own pace. As well as sexual satisfaction and faster climaxing, it is also a chance to get comfortable with your body and take control of your sexuality. When you climax, every cell in you is woken up, you glow and simply feel better.
