12 Days of Self-Sex

Category: Couple News

Not sure if I’m confessing or boasting right now but I started masturbating long before I knew what masturbation was. As far as I was concerned, I was the original masturbator, the great inventor of something that didn’t have a name and didn’t even have a purpose but it felt dizzyingly awesome and that was all that mattered. I was in awe of my creation. I spent endless hours mastering my craft, first with the bath’s detachable showerhead – the original apparatus of my revelation – clenched between my thighs and later, when I learnt that the shivers, shudders and breathtaking bliss could be recreated without running up my parents’ water bill, under the covers with my hand down my panties.



It was only later that I that not only was there a word for my furtive hobby but that just about everyone does it and in an endless array of ways. As I got older, masturbation had an image overhaul too: yesterday’s ‘dirty little secret’ (or in my case, squeaky clean but I digress) had become today’s buzzword for me-time and self-care, improved psychological and physical health, even pop culture was in on it!


Here’s another confession: I don’t wank as an act of self-care, to improve my heart health or to lower my risk of cancer. I do it because, like all those years ago, it feels awesome. As we celebrate Masturbation May here on Lustery, we want to promote a more honest discourse around masturbation and to re-examine an image that has gone from unclean to überclean – because masturbation can be messy and we should be allowed to talk about it. We shouldn’t need scientific sounding discourse for our pleasure to feel valid when being just plain horny is, honestly, legit as hell.



So to honor taking things into your own hands, we’re not going to tell you why you should masturbate and we’re definitely not going to tell you that there’s any right way to do it. Instead, we’ve invited some of our couples to detail how they like to masturbate and incorporate it into their sex lives. We teamed up with sex toy boutique Self and More and gave Amy and JR, Yunna and Renn, Mitsuki and William, Puck and Gila and Nina and Conor new toys to try out with one another – expect a new video every Sunday this month.



We’ve also released a 12-Days of Self-Sex challenge to invite you to shake up your routine (like, for example, if you have a pussy and haven’t tried the showerhead thing yet I urge you to reconsider what you’re doing with your bath times but again, I digress…). This booklet should not be treated as a prescriptive how-to guide but as a source of inspiration for one of our most intimate acts. The ways in which we can experience pleasure are so diversely delicious that we’d be remiss if we didn’t advise you to max out on that bliss.
