Sssssh! How to NOT Wake the Neighbours During Masturbation May!
As you all know, we've been getting very excited about Masturbation May here at Lovehoney Australia.
May is the month where everyone is encouraged to take some time out to indulge in a little self-love.
Whether it's with your hands, a vibrator, a dildo or a male sex toy, it's time to get to know your body a bit better - after all, if you can't give yourself an orgasm, how do you expect your partner to be able to?
Many people who live with family or housemates are often too nervous to masturbate while other people are home, worrying that the noise (either from sex toys or the resulting moans) will give the game away.
We've put together our top tips for keeping the noise down during your solo play sessions - read on below, and don't forget to enter our fantastic #MasturbationMay contest.
1. Make It Private
It's important to feel relaxed while masturbating, and worrying that someone could burst into your bedroom at any moment is likely to be a distraction. If you're able, lock or obstruct the bedroom door to stop anyone entering unexpectedly. If you don't have a lock on your bedroom door, consider moving your play to the bath or shower with a waterproof vibrator. As an added bonus, the sound of running water should mask any other noise!
2. Choose An Extra Quiet Vibrator
No vibrator is completely silent - the very action it takes to make vibrations causes some noise. However, some toys are quieter than others - in particular, those made of silicone and rechargeable vibrators. If you're using a battery-operated vibrator and find that it tends to rattle while on higher speeds, try adding a cylinder of card to the battery compartment. This should stop the batteries from rattling against the shaft, which helps keep the noise down.
3. Snuggle Up
Muffle any noise by snuggling up under a thick duvet or blanket. It may make you break a sweat, but the padding will greatly decrease the chance of sound carrying.
4. Put Your Record On
This has to be the oldest trick in the book, but it's a classic nonetheless. Whether you're alone or with a partner, putting on some sexy music not only sets the mood, but it also helps to drown out any tell-tale moaning. Result!
5. Don't Worry, Be Happy
At the end of the day, it's important to remember that masturbation is natural, everyone does it, and it's nothing to be ashamed of. Trying to keep it quiet may save a red face or two, but being overheard isn't the end of the world. If anything, your neighbours or roommates should be impressed by your dedication to Masturbation May!
