Sex Advice: Watch and learn - masturbation techniques to use on him
The only, absolutely guaranteed way to find out how your partner likes to be brought to orgasm manually is to watch them do it themselves.
Watching your partner masturbate isn't just sexy, it's the most informative sex lesson you'll get. Too embarrassed to demonstrate? Close your eyes as you're doing it. I don't care if you're dying behind those eyelids, the benefits of doing this far outweigh the angst, so stop being a wimp and get on with it.
When he's doing it, pay special attention to...
Where he places his hand at the very start
This is crucial. Adopting the exact position of his hand and fingers is the key to replicating what he does. Ask him to stop the minute he's taken hold of himself and take a good look. Get him to remove his hand and put yours in what you think is the exact same position. Does he agree you've got it right?
What pressure, speed and rhythm he uses
Put your hand over his once he gets going to get a better idea of the speed and rhythm. Once you've got the general idea, let him continue solo.
What alters from his first hand motion to orgasm
Does he maintain the same technique or switch between several? Does he speed up on approach to orgasm? Does he use his free hand to stimulate any other areas like his testes or lower tummy?
What happens to his body on approach to orgasm
You'll probably notice his testes will rise towards his body, his penis will become purplish in colour and his breathing will alter. Also look for his 'orgasm face' - a tell-tale expression that he's about to climax. Is his head thrown back? What noises is he making?
When he stops stimulation
Once you can see he's crossed the line into ejaculatory inevitability - he's about to orgasm no matter what - what happens next? When does he stop moving his hand? Does he remove it completely or hold onto his penis till the very end? How is he holding it?
