10 Magic Fingers

Before I say anything else, I want to be clear- I love sex toys. They create sensations that nothing else can do. Vibrators? Awesome! Dildos? Amazing fun. Cock rings? Yes! Butt plugs? Definitely! But hands and fingers are incredible versatile and you always have them with you!

Using your hands for self-pleasure might seem really simple, but I bet there are lots of things you could to to enjoy it more. First off, are you using something slippery? Massage oil feels great on the penis, of course, but it also adds yumminess on the clitoris! The Love Balm Natural Lubricant is a fun choice, and so are the Ignite Me Massage Candles. The candles are made from a soy-based wax that melts at a low temperature, so you can pour it onto your hands for a smooth glide and a delightful scent. If you’ve never used something designed for solo massage, give one of these a try.

Or maybe you do the same thing every time. Why not mix it up a bit? The Best of Penis Massage and Tickle Your Fancy have lots of great suggestions. You just might be surprised by how amazing something new can feel.

One common complaint, especially from people who take a while to orgasm is that their fingers get tired. Of course a vibrator is a really fun possibility, and we have plenty to choose from. But did you know that you can also get your hands in better shape? A lot of physical therapy websites show exercises you can do, like these. A great one is to put a rubber band around your fingers and then open them up. As your hand gets stronger, you can increase the number of reps in each set or use a tighter rubber band. And who knows? With some practice, you might even be able to do this. Doesn’t that look fun?
