Best Of: I’m In a Relationship. Why Masturbate?

Listen Now

We’re talking solo sex in the context of a relationship. In this Best Of episode, I’m addressing some of the most common questions I get on the subject, such as: “if I already have a partner, why masturbate?” and “if I masturbate in private, is it cheating?” We also discuss whether or not you should tell your partner if you masturbate, and touch briefly on porn addiction: starting with, is it real? Plus, I take your questions! How to set up your own “masturbation zone” when you live with a partner, whether it’s possible to have fantasy-free masturbation sessions, what to do if you can orgasm on your own but not with a partner, and much more. 

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why masturbation is important for your overall sexual wellness
  • The truth about porn addiction
  • How to incorporate toys into solo and partnered sex
