It’s the weekend and you have big plans. It involves candles, wine, a bath, soft music and self-indulgence with a toy named Anton. Are you the “master of your domain/queen of the castle, or do you regularly enjoy moments of masturbation whenever the urge strikes? Refinery 29 has outlined nine styles of self-pleasure; what does your masturbation technique say about you?
According to Women’s Health Magazine most women have admitted to masturbating at least once a week. Masturbation is a healthy form of sexual expression as long as it doesn’t prevent sex with a partner or is performed in public. Some experts suggest masturbation can “improve overall sexual health, general health and relationships.” So what does your self-pleasure style say about your personality or vice versa?
Refinery 29 compiled a personality/masturbation guide based upon information gathered through an author/founder of a popular online sex shop, and a sexologist. The nine styles are suggestive of one’s personality, or indicate what masturbation technique works best for your disposition. But, Refinery 29 warns not to take the list too seriously, it is just catalogue of unique ways to enjoy the moment alone and release tension.
“The Shameless Self-Pleasurer” leaves the door open and doesn’t the close blinds in the hopes of getting caught. Maybe someone will fulfill a fantasy, maybe they like to be watched, but the Shameless Self-Pleasurer isn’t necessarily an exhibitionist. Rather this masturbation style personifies someone that is extremely self-confident.
“The Under Cover Lover” is just the opposite of the above, often afraid to get caught. She plays the violin under the covers, sometimes on her belly, and is classified as slightly submissive, perhaps with a tad of masturbation guilt spilling over from childhood.
“All In” masturbators know what they like and where to find it. Whether that spot is a little to the left, or not, knowing what works makes for one hot lover.
Does your “Battery Powered Partner” have a name? Experts seem to think the “energy and electricity” from a vibrator “acts as a stand-in” for an actual person. And some women cannot leave home without it.
“The Weekend Warrior” is too busy during the week for moments of self-love, but makes up for it on the weekend, sometimes hours on end. The Weekend Warrior won’t settle for one orgasm, similar to the rest of her weekly decisions, only the best for this pleasure seeker.
“The Romancer” is going to give herself a night to remember and take all of the credit. The Romancer will seduce herself, and have no one to blame if the night doesn’t go right.
“Just the Fingertip” is probably the most popular because stimulation of the clitoris is the fastest way to orgasm. She likes to keep it simple.
The “Quick and Dirty” self lover is her own “wham, bam, thank you ma’am.” This is the person who masturbates to release stress, or to unload the gun before a hot date.
“The Solo Novice” is the woman without a masturbation style or someone that truly is the “master of their domain,” but not because they have impeccable self-control. The Solo Novice could be that person who has never experienced self-love because they’ve been told it is “dirty and bad.” The experts suggest to learn to masturbate in the shower, because it signifies “cleanliness,” which is a positive way to play.
