Mutual Masturbation: Another Tool for Your Sex Toy Toolbox

Posted by Vanessa Marin, LMFT

A common request I receive in my role as a sex therapist is for tips on how to spice up one's sex life. One idea clients rarely consider is mutual masturbation, which is one of the simplest but hottest ways to mix things up.
