Have you ever flicked the bean or polished the pole but barely limped to the finish line, or even quit the race halfway through? The truth is, not all masturbation is created equal. Luckily, the key to successful self-pleasure is totally in your hands. It all starts with getting into the right mindset.
Masturbation is as much a mental game as it is a physical one. So as we come to the close of Masturbation May, here are some tips to get your head in the right space for self-pleasure.
Have you ever had ‘that feeling’ after masturbating? You know the one. That sense of dread, or that feeling of guilty shame. Have you ever climaxed, looked at what you were watching and felt truly disgusted with your nasty gutter brain.
Well, it turns out, those feelings come from a bunch of different places. It can be psychological, trauma-based, cultural, or generational. But somehow, so often, shame surrounds masturbation.
May is Masturbation Month. And now with Covid-19, everyone is stuck at home. Your adolescent kids might have been feeling stifled and also discovering some of their, well, urges. What a great time to discuss masturbation with the whole family!
But seriously, having an authentic and candid, yet age-appropriate discussion with your kids about masturbation is one of the biggest gifts you can give your children. It sets them up for a better perspective on sex in general and also can help boost their self-esteem.
Here are some tips on how to approach this sticky (sorry couldn’t help it) subject.
On today’s show, Dr. Emily is going to help you mix up your masturbation routine! Plus, she’s taking your sex and relationship questions.

As the Masturbation May festivities roll on, we’re focusing today’s lens onto one particularly hot lane of the action. Let’s talk mutual masturbation!
Perhaps you’ve heard of it, or are already an ace practitioner yourself, but either way it’s definitely worth exploring. So let’s begin with this rousing roundup of blogs and podcasts all about it.
We all love to play with ourselves. In fact, masturbation is probably one of humankind’s most popular approaches to pleasure. It’s cheap, good for you, and pretty easy to pull off (so to speak). But solo sexual stimulation has always lived in the shadow of the “real thing.”
Sadly, masturbation is widely regarded as partnered sex’s less talented understudy… A reluctant last resort. A mere masturbatory means to an end.
Although it still gets you from point “A” to point “O” in the end, the ensuing orgasm has a tendency to feel lackluster without someone to co-opt coaxing it out of you. But it doesn’t have to! Continue Reading
If you were to write a book about all the things you didn’t learn in sex ed class, it would be three times as long (and three times as useful) as a book about what we did learn. It feels like we covered the medical names of all our parts and were fed some fear-mongering stats about pregnancy and STIs. For most, we somehow completely skipped over the fact that 1. You can orgasm. And 2. You can orgasm all by your damn self.
Don’t be fooled, like driving a car or making a food that isn’t mac and cheese from the box, masturbation is something you have to learn. And even if you had the most liberal or extensive health classes in school, chances are there wasn’t a unit on making yourself finish. (And if there was please let me know what school you went to.)
As a wise JT once said, “It’s gonna be May”. And with that comes one of our favorite occasions of the year: National Masturbation Month!
An entire month dedicated to the glorious pleasure past-time, Masturbation May is here! Let’s kickstart the conversation about why self-love is a healthy, normal part of sexuality that we should absolutely embrace year-round.
It has been around since the beginning of time. But theres still a staggering amount of shame, stigma and false information surrounding it.
So to help the cause, we’re here to debunk some of the biggest, baddest (and craziest) masturbation myths! We’ll prove that it’s not only totally natural, but good for you, too!
April 2020 was a long, hard month indeed. But alas, we’re nearing the summer months and it’s officially May! If you need a break from bad news and days full of stress, we at Sex With Emily have got a reason for you to celebrate. It’s Masturbation Month all May long!
There are so many reasons to celebrate masturbation. Not only does masturbation feel AWESOME, it’s also great FOR you. There are health benefits galore when it comes to chokin’ the chicken, flickin’ the bean, or whatever else you do to get yourself off.
In this video, Emily goes over the many health and wellness benefits of the wonderful act of self-pleasure.
