The Self-pleasuring Position: Is There a “Best” Technique?

Posted June 15, 2016 by man1health

When engaging in self-pleasuring, a man may favor a particular position. But are there benefits and deficits to what position one uses when practicing this favorite solo sport?
Most men develop some sort of preferred routine when it comes to self-pleasuring, including when and where they most enjoy doing it, how long, with what aid, and, of course, in which position. Certainly men do tend to switch it up on occasion, but over time, there tends to be some consistency in these areas. However, when it comes to position, are there reasons to switch it up more often? Those men who are interested in proper manhood care may want to consider this and possibly make some modifications to their routine in order to prevent desensitization, or worse, injury.

The basics

While there are variations on what position a man may take during self-pleasuring, these are essentially the six “basics,” along with a discussion of the pros and cons of each:

• Standing. Getting off while standing (usually with the feet shoulder-length apart and with the knees often bent and/or the pelvis thrust slightly forward) is a classic position. Standing is especially good when one is looking to perform a “quickie;” for lengthier self-pleasuring sessions, it can become rather tiring. Getting off while standing at the toilet tends to make clean-up easier, as the seed can drop into the bowl; it’s also the preferred way to self-stimulate in the shower, although one must be careful of falling while so engaged.

• Sitting. Probably the most popular position, due to the amount of computer adult material that is used during self-pleasuring. Sitting in front of a screen provides a man with ample opportunity to view stimulating material. It’s also easier to engage in lengthy self-pleasuring sessions while seated. However, most men self-stimulate at the computer in a “shoulders hunched” position, and over time this can be bad on the back and neck. Also, men who place a laptop too close to the crotch run the risk of heat from the laptop damaging sperm production.

• Lying on the back. Before the advent of computer adult material, this may very well have been the most popular position – and it’s still way up there. This is probably the most comfortable way to self-stimulate, especially if a man is using only his imagination and his hand. Those lying down in bed with a laptop or printed adult material may be twisting their bodies in some ways which may provide strain.

• Lying on the front. Lying prone and stimulating the manhood by rubbing it against the sheets allows for an approximation of the act of penetrative partner play. Sometimes, however, this can add too much friction for the manhood and may make it rather raw.

• Kneeling. Unless one’s legs are sufficiently strong, this can produce some strain for lengthy sessions.

• On all fours (or threes). In this position, a man gets down on all fours, then uses one hand to self-stimulate while steadying himself on the other. Unless one has sufficient arm strength, this is a position which is best for shorter self-pleasuring excursions.

So which position is best in terms of manhood care? That largely depends on the individual, but lying prone, as mentioned, can create a sore manhood. Those which require a quick road to emission may cause a man to self-stimulate too vigorously or grip too tightly, which may result in rawness. Sitting is excellent for lengthy sessions, but poor posture may result. Objectively, lying on the back probably is the healthiest for the manhood in general. However, as stated, each individual is different and what can be a deficit position for one man may be the preferred one for another.

Whatever position one employs when indulging in self-pleasuring, overenthusiasm may result in soreness. Using a first class manhood health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) can help ease soreness and maintain overall manhood health. A raw feeling manhood will respond to a crème with soothing, restorative hydrators like shea butter and vitamin E. Sometimes aggressive self-pleasuring will also lead to a diminishment of feeling in the manhood, which affects pleasure during partner play. Look for a crème with acetyl L carnitine, a neuroprotective ingredient that helps avoid peripheral nerve injury that lessens sensitivity in the manhood. Whatever one’s self-pleasuring position, manhood care is crucial.
