One of the great things about doing this is sharing your feelings as you both lie there satisfied by your own hands, but sharing an intimate moment together.
While most of us might think that a hands-off-each-other approach is what defines masturbation, dictionary definitions of mutual masturbation usually include touching each other and there’s no reason not to blur that line.
For starters, toys remind us that sex is play and lots of times it’s just meant to be silly fun.
Sex toys also provide a kind of strong, consistent stimulation that we can’t create on our own.
It comes with its own set of practices, intentions, and assumptions.
And you can bring those into sex with someone else.
After all, masturbation is something you do by yourself, right?
