Male Masturbation
Male masturbation techniques, when first viewed, may seem much simpler than similar techniques designed for females. The reason for this is simple- the penis is much more "accessible" than the female vulva, especially after sexual arousal. Here's some of the techniques you guys can learn about or experiment with, especially if you're like me and typically use just one or two simple techniques to get yourselves off. If a particular technique isn't working for you, remember to try both dry hands and lubricated hands, lubricated preferably with a water-based lubricant.

Getting warmed up

Men usually don't need to go through all the foreplay that women do in order to achieve a similar erotic state. This may be different depending on your age and your sex drive, and of course how long it has been since your last sexual activity, but for the most part men are always ready to go. However, for best results you should retire to a nice quiet place where you can concentrate on the task at hand, with whatever resources or materials you will need close by. I suggest some good magazines, KY Jelly, and some soothing music. An erotic train of thought, such as imagining that you're fucking someone really hot also helps, and often happens anyway. Hey, guys will be guys.

Manual stimulation

The most basic form of masturbation is through the use of the hands. For men, this usually involves stroking the penis using any one or a number of similar techniques until an orgasm is reached and ejaculation has occurred. If you are a veteran masturbator and want to try something a little different, try different hand positions, motions, speeds, and intensities. As any man with sexual experience including intercourse or fellatio knows, using the same exact stroke, pressure, and motion over an extended time without orgasmic release tends to dull the sensation of the penis. If you are having trouble achieving orgasm and you use only one technique, try stopping, waiting until your erection goes away, and then starting back up with stimulation using a slightly different technique. After this, switch techniques without stopping, and continue until you climax. If you don't know what I mean by using different techniques, here's a few ideas: one hand open, one hand closed, thumb and forefinger, thumb and pinkie, entire hand wrapped around the shaft, two hands open, two hands closed, and finally if you have a large penis you may be able to simulate a vagina by thrusting into two fully closed lubricated hands, stacked one on top of another. All of these include stroking the penis as varying speeds and pressures. Feel free to experiment, and you'll soon discover an unlimited number of techniques you can use to get yourself off.

Water play

The bathtub or shower can be more erotic than plain manual stimulation in bed, or wherever. A hot steamy shower is a great place for masturbation because its usually very private and there's some really interesting techniques you can employ by using simple ideas and readily available resources. My favorite technique involves soap, the water faucet, and of course my lathered hands. First, get yourself pumped up with some erotic thoughts. Then position yourself (if you can and your bathtub faucet is in such a position to allow this) so that your penis is directly under the flowing water from the faucet. BE CAREFUL with adjusting the temperature here, this is definitely one place you do not want to get scalded. From here I usually start off with lukewarm water, and eventually bring it up to the point where I can barely stand it anymore. This can be dangerous, so make sure you know your "plumbing" well before you attempt this so you can avoid getting chilled or burned. Some men might even orgasm to the flowing water alone- I never have. Once your raging member is throbbing contentedly, stand up, wash some if you wish, and then once you get soft, start in with the soap action and masturbate with your hands. Once you're hard again (should happen very fast), try thinking of a nice warm juicy pussy, close your eyes, and thrust into your best hand-vaginal simulation and orgasm when you cannot stand it anymore or you are ready. There's other techniques, and if you have a removable showerhead you have even more great things to try. Again, experimentation is the key, just make sure what you think of trying isn't something that will get you hurt.

Sex toys

Sexual toys such as dildos and vibrators usually aren't thought of as "manly" sex aids but rather those for women. If you've experimented with anal sex (men or women) and like it you might want to consider a dildo for anal play as you masturbate your penis. The anus is a very sensitive area, and stimulating both these areas can lead to some really explosive orgasms that could even rival the females. Vibrators have even more uses. You can use one to rub up and down your shaft and especially around your cock head, to stimulate your anus or perineum (the very tender area between your anus and your scrotum), or for other erogenous zones on your own body that you know about. You may even discover new ones! Men can be as manly as they want outside the bedroom, but lets face it, we're all big puffy teddy bears when it comes to sex. Don't let false and misinformed inhibitions prevent you from something you might end up loving.

Anal play

As I said before, combining anal stimulation with masturbation can lead to some truly amazing orgasms. In addition to stimulating your anus, if you're into anal sex at all you might want to consider getting off with a couple fingers inside your anus. Be sure to lubricate them well, with a water based lubricant first. Applying pressure to your prostate inside your anus at the point of no return (orgasmic inevitability) in just the right way may very well lead to the best orgasm you've ever had. If anal play just isn't your thing, then that's perfectly fine. You alone have the power to decide what you want to do and will do, so it is up to you alone to decide what techniques you will use to sexually satisfy yourself.

Combinations

For most men, having an orgasm is a simple thing. However, most men have had only general degree of orgasms their entire sexual life, and since most of them use the same technique to orgasm, they may not really know that much better, longer lasting orgasms are possible. The key to learning about these aspects of yourself is to experiment with combinations of techniques that include different hand motions, types of lubricants, and types of stimulation.

Cooling off

Cooling off from a personal sexual experience for men usually involves cleaning up. Paper towels, toilet paper, or regular bathroom towels (ones that are colored such that they won't be stained by the semen) often do the trick. Just remember not to flush paper towels, they weren't designed for that. If you're in the shower you're probably not going to have much to clean up, obviously. After you've spent and cleaned yourself up and gotten dressed or whatever, do what you want, because you are beyond the scope of this article! Have a good one.
