Weird and curious sex toys – why you should mix up your masturbation techniques

Routine isn’t always a bad thing: sometimes you just want to relax into your comfort zone. But there are other times when routine can get you down. Especially when it comes to sex and masturbation, some people worry that they might get used to the same type of stimulation, and struggle to get off on anything else.

This week I wanted to focus on a few curious sex toys that offer something a little out of the ordinary. Whether in looks, technology, or approach, here are a few weird and wonderful sex toys that might give you a nudge to explore outside your comfort zone.

The Cone vibrator

Bet you haven’t seen many of these around! As far as weird and curious sex toys go, the Cone is right up there. It’s a powerful, hands-free vibrator that you sit on and ride. Absolutely perfect for mixing it up if you tend towards fairly static (not lazy not lazy not lazy) masturbation like I do.

Loving joy real feel blow job stroker

A month ago I wouldn’t have recommended this. I prefer using strokers on my partner that are less biological and realistic-looking. But I recently tested out a set of different strokers on him, and this one came out close to the top of the list! Apparently it has great texture, and gives a really lovely sensation.

You only need to watch the video for this to be utterly mesmerised by it. If your masturbation trends towards just using the most powerful vibration you can find, then these curious sex toys which rotate slightly and gently massage your clit will definitely help you mix it up and break from your routine.

Alive Nero silicone coated prostate massager

If you enjoy using butt plugs, then experimenting with a shaped prostate massager like this may be just the breath of fresh air you need. I’ve tried toys like this on men I’ve loved in the past, and they’ve been a massive hit: the targeted pressure they put on the prostate, along with the handle which allows for easy motion (sliding gently in and out, or rocking back and forth, for example) can take the average session from ‘oh yes’ to ‘oh I just came.’

Mixing up your masturbation techniques

We talk a lot about the benefits of spicing up your sex life with a partner: it can help you learn more about what the other one likes, give you space to explore your kinks and fantasies, and above all it’s just plain fun. But what about sex with yourself? Solo sex counts too, after all, and while it can be easy and relaxing to slip into the same masturbation routine for most of your individual sessions, the same benefits apply here too.

Trying out new masturbation techniques, and using curious sex toys that stimulate you differently, allows you to learn more about your own body and discover things that may never have occurred to you before. Even if none of the weird and curious sex toys above take your fancy, there’s bound to be at least one thing on this site that represents a chance of pace.

If you have a penis, and you’re used to just using ‘death grip’ masturbation techniques to get off, why not try out a stroker? The change in pressure and texture can take you on a slower, more intense journey to a different kind of orgasm. Or how about trying a prostate massager at the same time? Again, the orgasm you have will be different, because you’re getting the pleasure from a broader range of places.

If you’re used to clitoral vibrators, a g-spot vibe could be a revelation to you. Personally I was all about the clitoral stimulation, until I started incorporating a g-spot dildo: now I rarely masturbate without one! But if I were looking to mix up my technique, sit-on vibrators like the Cone above would be top of my list, seeing as they demand a more active style, which could give me a very different kind of solo play time.

The most important thing to remember if you’re trying curious sex toys to mix up your masturbation techniques, is that it’s as much about the journey as the destination. Try to give yourself time to really explore, rather than racing to get to orgasm as quickly as possible: the things you’ll learn on the way could be the basis for new types of orgasm in the future!
