Masturbation does not have to just be a solo sexual activity, it can also be a means of sharing pleasure with your partner. Many people enjoy watching their partner masturbate, and gain pleasure in return from performing this activity for their partner. It can be a thrilling way to start the night, or something you can both do while pleasuring each other
Masturbation also allows partners with different sex drives to feel satisfied within the relationship. You or your partner can masturbate separately, or with each other, to relieve sexual tension and attain sexual fulfillment when the other is unable/unwilling to engage in intercourse or sexual play.
Another benefit of masturbating together is showing your partner what you like. Most people who masturbate don't have trouble getting themselves to climax, and it never hurts for a sexual partner to see some other techniques for pleasuring the other.
Unfortunately, many individuals have trouble masturbating in front of their partner. They believe Masturbation is a solo or secretive act, which they feel embarrassed to share with others. You should never pressure someone to perform something they do not want to do. If you would like to have your partner masturbate for you, bring up the subject, but do not press it if they would prefer not to.
One way you can aid your partner is to actively satisfy yourself and not always expect them to satisfy your sexual needs.
