Face Me

Now that we've covered what it means to participate in mutual masturbation, let's uncover the five common yet delicious positions you and your partner can do right now. The first on the list is called "Face Me" because it's where partners sit or lie facing each other with their legs spread open. This immediately provides an intimate and up-close look at the both of you touching yourselves or each other through your own hands or through a sex toy of choice. It's definitely perfect for couples who want to explore each other's body and find pleasure in their partner feeling utter bliss. Plus, the maintained eye contact just makes things even hotter.

This second position has the partners lying on the sides, facing each other – providing a somewhat "sneakier" experience to mutual masturbation because couples can sneak their hands in between to stimulate their intimate parts. This is great for couples who want to cuddle while masturbating without sacrificing any bit of intimacy. In fact, since your bodies are skin-to-skin, you should be able to feel an even greater sense of intimacy!

This is amazing for couples who may not want the fast-paced nature of doing something at the same time! It is also amazing in providing comfort and intimacy while having easy access to each other's genitals! Perfect for those cold, rainy nights!
