Your self-pleasure experience doesn’t have to be a race to the finish line. Masturbation can be just as enjoyable as sex with a partner. Men deserve a solid self-love session just as much as women do.

Turn your next self-pleasure session into an act of pure ecstasy with an orgasm so intense you’ll need recovery time. With tips from using a prostate massager to trying edging, your climax will become an out-of-body experience you’ll be eager to do again.

Relax Your Body

The male body instinctually clenches up and contracts during sexual stimulation. This instinct is natural but if you’re seeking a more pleasurable orgasm, you’ll want to learn how to relax your body. When you resist the urge to clench, you leave your body with the room to enjoy the pleasure it’s feeling more fully.

A great method to relax your body is to focus on your breathing. When you’re aroused, your breath quickens. Be mindful of how you’re breathing and control it into slower motions. This breathing helps relax your body and expands your potential for a more pleasurable experience.

Hyper-Focus Your Attention

Another useful method for finding relaxation in the body is to focus your attention on the body. This practice is dually beneficial during self-pleasure. Turn your attention to how your body is feeling. What sensations are you enjoying? What physical reactions is your body having?

Hyper-focus on the sensations of your body. Let yourself fully feel them and enjoy them. Your appreciation for each of these sensations and the thought of how good it feels can deepen your orgasm.

Use a Prostate Massager

A prostate massager is the best sex toy to invest in to intensify your self-pleasure experience because it targets what is commonly known as the male G-spot: the prostate. The prostate, which is about the size of a walnut, is an internal gland located between the bladder and the rectum. When stimulated, men experience intense sexual pleasure.

While it’s possible to stimulate the prostate manual, a massager further intensifies your orgasm and takes the work off your hands (literally). A prostate massager is inserted into your anus and massages the prostate completely hands-free. You can literally lay back and let the massager do its work while you enjoy an explosive orgasm.

Engage Your Taint

The taint, which is technically called the perineum, is the strip of skin located between your balls and your butt. The taint is a highly erogenous zone that responds to sexual stimulation. Apply a little bit of pressure to the area, however much feels good to you, to stimulate the zone to launch you into orgasm.

Aim for Multiple Orgasms

Multiple orgasms are not pleasures only possible for women to enjoy. That’s right, men can have multiple orgasms, too. There are two primary ways men can reach the point of multiple orgasms: through prostate stimulation (specifically with a prostate massager) and by stimulating the taint. Both the prostate and the taint are erogenous zones. When stimulated, each can bring you to the brink of an intense orgasm.

Because of your refractory period, which is the time after a man ejaculates when he is no longer able to have an erection, achieving multiple orgasms can be more difficult, but it’s not impossible. It can take some practice, which involves learning how to separate the feeling of orgasm from the experience of ejaculation. Through this practice, you can bring your body to experience multiple non-ejaculatory orgasms. The work is worth it when you can start enjoying more than one orgasm during self-pleasure.

Delay Your Orgasms

Delaying your orgasm, which is a practice called edging, can help you reach a more intense climax. Delayed gratification is often difficult to master but it is definitely worth it. Men who have mastered this technique have enjoyed orgasms that were much more intense and pleasurable.

Here’s how edging works: you bring your body to the “edge” of your orgasm, pause and slow yourself down, and then start up again. Aim to do this two or three times in total before finally allowing yourself to climax.

Kegel Exercises

That’s right, kegel exercises are not just for women. Men can enjoy the benefits of exercising their kegel muscles as well. Kegel exercises are the movement of contracting your pelvic floor muscles. This practice can give you greater control and intensity during sex. To work your kegels, try to lift your penis up and down using your muscles.

Now that you have the tools to deepen your self-pleasure experience, you’re ready to do the homework. Enjoy!
