5 tips for discreet masturbation so you can focus on your pleasure.
Written in partnership with IOBA Toys
There are many factors to take into consideration when picking out vibrators. Some look for an ideal shape and size, some prefer theirs to be waterproof and others look for a certain amount of speeds. I, however, look for the vibrators that are as quiet as a mouse. My designated masturbation time is essential to me and as someone who is used to living with roommates, nothing kills the mood faster than worrying about whether or not your vibrator is too loud.
During my last two years of undergrad, it was easier to masturbate as I pleased because I lived in a 3-bedroom apartment, so privacy was never an issue because we could easily lock our doors and be completely to ourselves. However, not too long after I graduated, I moved back in with my parents and I will continue to be under their roof until I move out of state to start graduate school. As I’m living with my parents, I stay in my sister’s old room, which has a similar set-up as a loft; there’s no door to seclude myself, only stairs that lead up to the room. As you can imagine, this kind of situation is an avid masturbator’s worst nightmare, but I recently figured out a way to accommodate that with ioba’s high-quality 3-speed OhMyG Super Silent G-spot Massager and here’s how you can, too:
1. Inquire about the noise level beforehand.
When purchasing any vibrator online, read diligently through the product details. For example, ioba lists the specific noise level of the OhMyG in the product details, showing that OhMyG operates at < 30 dBA (decibels adjusted to reflect the ear’s response to different frequencies of sound). On a noise level chart, < 30 dBA is the equivalent of a whisper. If you want to get your hands on one, use code tabu25 at checkout for a nice lil’ discount!
2. Prepare some background noise.
I didn’t feel like I absolutely had to do this with the ioba OhMyG vibrator, but if you’re extra cautious about being discreet, it’s a good idea to have some on-going sounds in the background. You could have your favorite reality show playing on your TV or turn up the music on your stereo.
3. Use it in the bathtub or shower.
Indulge yourself in a warm bath or have the water pouring directly on you while taking a shower and unwind with the waterproof vibrating toy. Luckily, OhMyG is protected against the splashing of water so you’re free to use the water as a way to alleviate any fears of being too noisy.
4. Consider your bodily position.
As opposed to lying on your back when you masturbate, try doing so on your stomach instead so that if there’s any chance that your breathing is heavy or you let out any post-orgasmic moans, your face will be headfirst into the pillow rather than outward into the atmosphere. As an added bonus, you can place the C-shaped vibrator internally as if being penetrated in a modified version of the doggy position with your stomach facing the bed while raising your hips slightly using the covers or another pillow so that OhMyG’s riveting, fingering motion mimicking pearl feature has access to reach the front wall of your vagina and get to the G-spot.
5. Have open and honest communication with the people you live with.
Sometimes the biggest way to ease any potential embarrassment is to be upfront about it. You don’t have to make an announcement every time you’re about to have your self-pleasure time, but if you at least let the people you’re living with know that this is a routine engagement for you, they’ll probably be more understanding of your boundaries concerning privacy.
Though there are understandable privacy concerns when it comes to masturbation, don’t let the idea of having to control the sounds of your pleasure keep you from enjoying and satisfying yourself. Be sure to keep these tips and tricks in mind the next time you find yourself in a situation where you’re living with other people and you want to masturbate discreetly!
