When you figure out those perfect moves that get you off every time, you probably don’t feel the need to switch up your masturbation routine very often. But even if you have your style down pat, your solo sessions can be just as experimental as the ones you have with a partner (after all, a routine can get a little, well, routine). Retire your tried-and-true routine for the night, and treat yourself instead to these super-hot moves from our sex position guide.
If you love clitoral stimulation but find prolonged pressure a little too intense, try the Circle Perk to reap the benefits of all those nerve endings in your c-spot. To do this move, find a seated position that is comfortable and allows you access between your legs, and use your finger to “draw” a circle around your clitoris. Start slow, and depending on your speed and reaction, increase speed and pressure. If the “O” shape isn’t doing it for you, try tracing the letters of the alphabet to switch it up. Find out more about the Circle Perk.

Just because you’re going solo doesn’t mean you have to forgo the girl-on-top hotness. Straddle the arm of a stuffed chair or couch with a thick blanket or towel draped over it. Start by riding it with small hip movements, and slowly build momentum until you find a pace that works for you. If you like solid, steady pressure on your clitoris, this move will drive you wild.

While the elusive G-spot is still widely debated, there’s no doubt that you’ll feel amazing sensations in this position. Lie on your back, and draw your knees toward your chest. Insert one or two fingers deeply, and press against the front wall of your vagina, curling your fingers in a come hither motion (no pun intended). For variation, try it with only one leg bent to your chest with the other extended, or place a pillow under your hips. Find out more about Get to the G-Spot.
This simple move makes it easy to grind your way to a serious orgasm. Just lie on your stomach with your hand firmly between your legs, and stimulate your clitoris and pubic mound by grinding your legs together and moving your hips up and down. And don’t worry if you have roommates: The pillow is right there to muffle any sound you might make. Find out more about Belly Down.
If rubbing your clitoris is your go-to move, switch it up by tapping instead. The quick and intense sensation will be a welcome change, and it’s easy to vary the speed and pressure. To do this, lay on one side with one leg extended and the other bent. Gently separate and hold your labia to the sides, and apply a tiny drop of lube to your clitoris. With your other hand, begin tapping gently on it—then, tap harder or faster for a whole new experience. Find out more about the Tap Dance.
