This week, one woman wants to know everything there is to know about mutual masturbation.

This might be a confusing term to some, as masturbation is usually a pretty solo activity and not something anyone else (besides our sex toys) is going to be a part of.
Yet mutual masturbation is a highly erotic activity for partner/s to explore together. It involves partners touching themselves in front of each other, either in the same room or over an online platform, but the key point is touching and pleasuring themselves, not each other.
Mutual masturbation is great for education, for learning how your partner likes to be touched and showing your partner how your own body accepts pleasure.
