    23 Ways To Make Jerking Off Even Better

    Because there's more than one way to rub one out.

    Let's be honest: When you have a penis, masturbating is a pretty straightforward affair — but that doesn't mean you can't mix things up.

    To help you get some new ideas, BuzzFeed asked people of all ages, genders, and sexualities to describe the nitty-gritty of how they actually masturbate. Here are tips from our readers with penises that you might want to try yourself.

    1. Go to town on a folded body pillow (then, you know, wash it).

    2. Put some lube inside a condom for a makeshift masturbation sleeve to jerk off with.

    3. Or DIY one with a plastic bag, lotion, and petroleum jelly.

    4. Try out a Jerk Off Instruction video or audio.

    5. Use a vibrator on your balls and perineum.

    6. Go hands free by masturbating face-down on your bed.

    7. Try stimulating yourself anally with a finger or two.

    8. Or with some prostate-stimulating toys.

    13. Or by just rubbing the underside.

    14. Stimulate it ~sideways~ instead of up and down.

    16. Try out some alternative underwear choices to switch things up.

    17. Challenge yourself to time your orgasm with the ~money shot~ in the porn you're watching.

    18. Or thrust to mimic movements of the scene.
