And while there’s absolutely nothing wrong with the five-knuckle shuffle, variety is the spice of life! So to spice things up, here 20 are new ways to masturbate — from manual to automatic and everything in between!

So without further ado, let’s get started! Complete all 20 to become a masturbation maestro!

20 Different Ways to Jerk Off

1. Jerk Off in a Different Position

Sitting on a chair, standing, leaning against a wall, kneeling with your legs wide apart, lying on your back or stomach — there are so many different positions to masturbate in. Each position creates different sensations, gives you different views, and allows you to fantasize about different sexy scenarios.

2. Try a Different Place to Jerk Off

The bedroom and bathroom are two popular places to masturbate, but changing to a new location can add an element of excitement to your solo sessions. Obviously, where you choose depends on your living circumstances, but there are a lot of possibilities!

  • Have a home office? Time for a sexy office fantasy!
  • Get comfy on the couch and throw on a movie with some steamy sex scenes.
  • If you have a discreet corner of the garden or a very private balcony, you could enjoy the thrill of masturbating outdoors.

3. Thrust Your Hips

Summon your inner Elvis and get that pelvis working! Thrusting your hips as you masturbate mimics the feeling of sex and get’s more blood flowing to your pelvic floor and penis.

4. Different Strokes for Different Folks!

You don’t need any fancy sex toys to try something new, although they certainly help! More on that shortly!

Simply changing the positioning and movement of your hands can provide you with some fresh, new sensations. Here are some to try:

  • Masturbate with your non-dominant hand.
  • Interlace your fingers and use both hands at the same time.
  • Use a slow twisting motion.
  • Use just your thumb and finger to create a circle and slide it up and down the shaft.

Oh and don’t forget the lube!

5. Tease Your Testicles and Taint

The testicles and perineum (taint) are also full of sensitive nerve endings that can feel fantastic when stroked. Massaging the perineum can also stimulate your prostate, which is also known as the male g-spot. Again, don’t forget to apply lube to avoid unwanted friction!

6. Focus on Your Frenulum

Or play the banjo string! The frenulum, also known as the banjo string is on the underside of the tip of your penis and is one of the most sensitive parts of the penis. Use a couple of fingers to rub this sweet spot or add a bit more power with a bullet vibrator.

7. Jerk Off With a Manual Stroker

Manual strokers allow you to experience new textures that you just can’t get with your hand. And, there’s a dizzying array of textures to choose from, from realistic to out-of-this-world and everything in between.

Not only that, you get a choice of different orifices — mouth fleshlights for oral sex any time you want it, anal fleshlights for some backdoor fun, or even a pornstar pocket pussy modeled on your favorite adult actress

Whatever you go for, don’t forget to add some fleshlight lube for the most realistic experience!

8. Take It Up a Notch With an Automatic Stroker

Automatic masturbators do all the work for you, allowing you to sit back and enjoy the ride. Not to mention, it’s much easier to get lost in a sexy fantasy when you don’t have to move anything manually! They come with a range of sensations including warming, pulsing, sucking, and thrusting.

The Handy automatic stroker is always on hand to deliver first-class, customizable thrusting!

9. Pair Your Sex Toy With VR Porn

Technology truly is a marvelous thing! The range of VR-compatible sex toys is expanding, providing some of the most realistic solo sessions ever! Sit back and let the toy take you on the ride of a lifetime while you are fully immersed in your favorite porn movie!

The Keon from Kiiroo has to be one of the most advanced out there! It can also be connected to other compatible toys for some seriously good long-distance sex. Not to mention it can reach up to 230 strokes per minute!

10. Explore Prostate Pleasure

There’s a reason the prostate is called the male g-spot! The p-spot might be small but this gland is big on pleasure! You can even have an orgasm from prostate stimulation alone — aptly named a prostate orgasm!

It is possible to stimulate the prostate externally by massaging your perineum, but you can also massage it more directly internally. To access your prostate you can insert your fingers and stroke it or use a curved anal dildo or prostate massager.

Whatever you decide, thick anal lube is a must as the anus is not self-lubricating!

11. Jerk Off Hands-Free

Instead of moving your hands, take your favorite fleshlight and find a convenient place to wedge it, so you can enjoy hands-free thrusting! A couple of cushions tied together with two belts makes for an easy fleshlight holder, but there are other places you can prop your masturbator for variation!

Why not put your hands to work teasing your sensitive sweet spots.

12. Try a New Lube for New Sensations

Whether you are going hand solo or using a sex toy lube is an absolute must, but it can also add new and exciting sensations! Use some warming lube for a little extra heat or make it tingle with a cooling lube! If you only have regular lube to hand, you heat it by putting the bottle in warm (NOT HOT) water or popping it in the fridge.

13. Edge Your Way to Out of This World Orgasms

Not only does edging give you more time to enjoy your solo sessions, but it can also lead to some incredibly intense orgasms! If you aren’t familiar with the term, edging is allowing yourself to get right to the edge of an orgasm, stopping stimulation to let the orgasm subside, and then repeating the process all over again. When you finally do go all the way prepare for possibly explosive results!

14. Try a Cock Ring to Last a Little Longer

Cock rings, particularly stretchy cock rings or adjustable loop cock rings, help give you harder, longer laster erections by restricting blood flow out your penis. This extra circulation in the penis can also increase sensitivity!

If you are looking for a twofer then why not try a vibrating cock ring for some added power. Teardrop cock rings can also stimulate the sensitive area of the perineum for three types of stimulation in one toy!

The We-Vibe Verge can be used solo or swiveled around for some clit stimulation with a partner and it’s even app enabled!

15. Try a Penis Vibrator

Vibrators definitely aren’t only for those with vulvas — it’s time more penis owners discovered just how amazing vibrations can feel! Penis vibrators come in many forms and a perfect for delivering delicious vibrations anywhere you like!

The Manta from Fun Factory is the swiss army knife of penis vibrators! Use it solo to stroke your shaft, buzz your balls, or tingle the tip! As a bonus, you can show your partner a magic trick by turning your penis into a vibrator! Just hold your new magic wand around the base of your penis while having sex for you both to enjoy!

16. Master Mutual Masturbation (online or IRL)

Yes, jerking off is usually a solo sport but it’s fun to play doubles once in a while! Whether you have a partner in the same room as you or you are joining the meeting online, masturbating together can be REALLY hot! Try and pace yourselves and finish at the same time for a fun game!

If you want to up your mutual masturbation, Lovense makes a range of interactive sex toys that can connect to each other from anywhere in the world and sync to each other’s movements! The Calor and Max 2 are both penis-pleasing toys, while the Nora is made for vulva owners.

17. Explore Your Erogenous Zones

Sure the penis tends to be the main course when it comes to masturbation but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some side dishes or even the full tasting menu! We are capable of feeling pleasure all over our bodies, so why not explore yours and discover those hidden sweet spots. Here are a couple ideas to get you started:

  • The nipples — gently massage your nipples and gradually build up to stronger tugs and pinches. If you like the sensation, treat yourself to some nipple clamps for some hands-free nip stimulation.
  • Try stroking or lightly scratching anywhere with soft, thin skin such as the inner arms, stomach, and thighs.

18. Jerk Off to Audio Porn

If you are used to watching porn while you masturbate, you can change it up by listening to audio porn! This encourages you to use your imagination a bit more and can help stop you from becoming over-reliant on porn! Not to mention, you can throw your headphones on and listen to it on your walk home — you’ll be ready to burst through the door!

19. Masturbate with a Super Realistic With a Sex Doll

If you love lifelike sensations and visuals, a sex doll or sex doll torso could be the masturbation partner for you! Choose between big and bouncy breasts or a spankable behind or go for a life-size sex doll and get both!

The Fuck Me Silly 2 is a torso that comes with both a vagina and an anus as well as a rideable set of boobs for three ways to play!

Try Some Anal Beads

Take your orgasm to new heights with some anal beads. Anal beads deliver rippling pleasure as bead pops inside and can give your orgasm a turbo boost when removed at the point of no return!

As small anal beads are very slim, they are perfect for anal play newbies, but there are also plenty of bigger options out there too! You can even get some vibrating anal beads for an added buzz.

These silicone anal beads from Satisfyer come as a set of three, each with a different shape.

Masturbation Tips for Penis Owners

Now you’ve got 20 different ways to jerk off, here are some top masturbation tips for men and people with penises for even more pleasure in every session!

  1. Always use lube! Not only does the slippery sensation feel so much more realistic, but it will also prevent any friction — something you really don’t want!
  2. Don’t race ahead to the finish line! Every once in a while, slow it down and give yourself a long and luxurious solo session, with more time to enjoy yourself!
  3. Foreplay isn’t only for partnered sex. Warming puts your senses on high alert, enhancing the pleasure you feel. Try teasing your nipples or stroking the insides of your thighs to get the blood pumping.
  4. If you want to achieve a bigger or harder erection for you for your solo session, try using a penis pump. Hydro pumps are popular as they can be used in the shower!
  5. Try jerking off at different times of the day to see the impact. Does a morning wank put a spring in your step or does a little bedtime fun help you fall into a blissful slumber?
