Masturbation is still thought to be the last resort of release for guys because they can't get laid. But it shouldn't be.
Couples can masturbate together.
To watch is not just for the erotic visual to heighten arousal. Because we do things for ourselves that feel good to us, it's a great way to learn what our partners enjoy.
What makes solo sex so good is the ability to speed things up, then to slow down and back off, to make the pleasure last as long as we want. We cum when we're ready, not because a partner is ready.
We can pound one out in a few minutes,
or tease and play for hours.
Masturbation should not be a supplement to partner sex, it should be a regular part of a normal, healthy sex life.
