If you’re someone that experiences pleasure by squeezing your thighs, also known as syntribation, you’re not alone in this one.
As we’ve mentioned in our previous guides, every person has their own preferences when it comes to self-pleasure. If you’re someone that doesn’t get off from the typical masturbation methods such as fingering and pillow humping, then that’s fine. It’s normal to have your own masturbation style. You can still lead a satisfying sex life. You just need to amp up the creative juices to incorporate syntribation in other sexual acts– this guide helps on how to do just that.
For today’s feature, we will discuss what syntribation or thigh-squeezing is, as well as the ways to incorporate this method into partnered sex and sex-toy play.
What is Syntribation?
Syntribation, also known as thigh-squeezing and chairgasm, is a masturbation method wherein you squeeze or clench your thighs together until you reach a blissful climax. This method is usually more popular with females, but some males also enjoy this technique.
The term “syntribation” doesn’t have a specific origin, but it was already established as early as 2005, as shown on this urban dictionary definition.
As for the science behind this technique, there are no specific studies about syntribation yet. But as per testimonials from various online forums, syntribation brings pleasure due to the immense indirect pressure that you can give to your clitoris or glans (head of the penis). Since both parts have thousands of nerve endings, putting indirect pressure on the area by thigh-squeezing can bring sexual satisfaction. Some females also feel that their vaginal walls are moving against each other, which again brings sexual satisfaction on their end.
Aside from giving indirect pressure to the most sensitive pleasure spots, another reason why people enjoy syntribation is its sense of discreetness. Unlike fingering or pillow humping, you’re not putting yourself in an awkward position just in case someone enters your room. You’re just crossing your legs, just you would do while sleeping or sitting down. You can also get all sneaky with this method and do it in public.
How to Syntribate
It’s up to you if you want to sit down or lay down, just make sure you’re in a comfy spot. Start by crossing your legs. After that, squeeze your thighs. Feel that pleasurable pressure on your clit/glans area? Just keep going. You can also fill your mind with sexual thoughts or watch an erotic video to amp up the experience. Keep on squeezing your thighs until you feel a satisfying release/climax.
Another method is by putting your hands in the middle of your inner thighs. Then cross your legs and squeeze your thighs as tight as you can. Take note that your hands wouldn’t do anything– it’s just sandwiched on your thighs. This modified method adds more pressure and squeezing sensation to your intimate area.
Now, it’s up to you if you want to do it fully clothed or naked, but most women enjoy doing this technique with clothes on. You can also do this outside if public fun is your kink. Just be careful when doing so.
How to Syntribate With a Partner
Because of the unique nature of this masturbation method, most people think that there’s no way to incorporate syntribation with partnered sex. But that’s not necessarily the case. As long as you’ve communicated well with your partner, you can spice up the deed with this technique.
If you’re engaging in penetrative sex, go for positions that allow you to syntribate while being penetrated. Some of the common positions for this are spooning, lap dance, launchpad, and dead bug pose. You’ll just need a few modifications on these positions, as you would squeeze your thighs throughout the deed.
For more deets, we also suggest checking out some pornographic videos on how to syntribate with a partner. Having a visual guide may help you with how to further navigate this kind of play.
You could also go for mutual masturbation! You can syntribate while your partner does their own masturbation technique. It’s simpler and will surely make you both reach that heavenly climax.
How to Syntribate With Sex Toys
Using sex toys during syntribation? Yes, it’s possible! We suggest using mini vibrators, love eggs, or any vibrator with a round flat shape. Just turn on the sex toy, put it in the middle of your thighs, and let it vibrate as you syntribate.
You can also use kegel balls when syntirbating. What’s great about this is that you’re not just having sexual pleasure, you’re also giving your pelvic walls some well-deserved exercise! Just insert a lubed-up kegel ball in your vagina, then syntribate as usual.
Steer away from chunky vibrators and dildos. Clit suckers may be fine, but you may not enjoy them as much as the appeal of syntribation is that it provides indirect stimulation on the clit. You can also insert a butt plug during syntribation if anal play is your thing. You can also use vibrators or nipple suckers for extra stimulation on the nips!
