Last we spoke, I told you about how I'm trying to make masturbating more of a habit (which has been going really, really well, by the way!).
But I've noticed something: I've noticed that when I sit down to do it, I kind of go through the motions with it. There this routine I usually rely on—disrobe, hunt for porn, jill off, climax, close browser, go back to the real world—and I don't tend to deviate from that.
My self-pleasuring sessions has become a little monotonous, even a little disconnected. And I didn't realize that I had been craving something new, craving to feel a connection with myself in ways where it doesn't feel so Wham, bam, thank you ma'am!, until I had this conversation.
A few days ago, I sat down with Vanessa Cuccia (the boss lady who created Chakrubs) and she started talking about solo sex magic—about doing certain things in your masturbation practice that makes it more intentional and spiritual.
And now. . . I don't want to touch myself in any other way.
/ Masturbation as a form of self-care, + a new, much more accessible way of masturbating (with this new way, you'll be able to do it in public without anyone knowing).
/ Vanessa's journey toward shameless sexual self-care, and how she healed the emotional wounds from some harmful beliefs about her sexual body.
/ The idea of "conscious masturbation" as a spiritual practice, and what Vanessa does before, during, and after a self-pleasuring session.
/ And some amazing tips on how to get masturbation on your radar—especially if you're in a committed relationship.
"I'm not somebody who meditates everyday, but I am someone who will masturbate at least once a week. That's my spiritual practice."
