Just mentioning 'masturbation' brings to mind solo pleasure like no other, but did you know that mutual masturbation is a thing too? It's pretty great! It lets you and your lover share intimacies in new ways and if you've never tried it before, you're totally missing out.

If you've got a partner and a willing set of palms then do we have the list for you. All these positions are great for couples with any gender configuration – if we haven't mentioned your bits, we promise the feel will still be good with whatever you've got.

So invite your lover to join you, and take a look at our top 6 mutual masturbation positions.


1. Soft Touch

If you're eager to get started with mutual masturbation but feel a little bit shy about doing so, the Soft Touch is for you.

How: Lie on your back next to one another and take hold of your partner's hand. Keep your eyes closed while you touch yourself in your favourite way, and enjoy listening to your partner and feeling them squeeze your hand as they play too.


2. Lover's Lounge

Once you're feeling a bit more confident with mutual masturbation, spread things out a little.

How: Sling one leg over your partner's lap while you play. The nearness helps make it feel like something you're doing together, while the sitting-up position makes it easy to catch a peek at their moves.


3. Peep Show

To really set things alight, try out Peep Show, which challenges you to keep your hands off one another while giving you an all-access view to your partner's playground. If you've got a passion for fashion, this is the perfect position to add lingerie to.

How: One partner settles comfortably on the edge of a bed with their legs spread, while the other kneels nearby. You can touch your partner, but only with one foot – instead, focus on watching them touch themselves where they like it most.


4. Club 96

Move over 69, there's a new sex position in town. No, it's not second verse same as the first – Club 96 is for couples who want to see e v e r y t h i n g.

How: Lie next to one another with one leg over each other's chest, with your heads at opposite ends of the bed. Arrange yourself so you can get a sensational eyeful while your partner watches you enjoy your favourite toy or touch.


5. The Proposition

For a real intimate feel, try The Proposition, where close proximity to your partner is the name of the game.

How: Kneel comfortably facing your partner and let your hands explore your body, hips, inner thighs and intimate areas. Be sure to keep eye contact with your partner as play progresses – it'll bring the temperature up from hot to scorching.


6. Wow The Webcam

You may be hoping to enjoy some long-distance love with your partner, and a webcam + this position could be the best thing that happens to you.

How: You and your partner probably won't be in the same room for this, so it's all about display and comfort. Make sure you're sitting in a comfortable position, where you might be able to keep a phone between your ear and your shoulder. Arrange a webcam or mobile so it gives your partner intimate access as you show them your good stuff.
