Self-pleasure is the safest form of sex. Not only does the act connect one with their sexual energy, it also allows the participant to receive pleasure exactly the way she desires.
Now, when it comes to female self-pleasure, there is a new trend: the cucumber masturbation movement. It may seem strange to think about using a food item in the act of female masturbation, but utilizing cucumbers for self-pleasure is not just about getting off. It’s also the perfect way for a woman to maintain the proper pH balance in her yoni—talk about win/win. Want to start a sexy conversation with a girl you’re feeling? Bring takeout, a bottle of wine and a moderately sized cucumber the next time ya’ll about to have kick it night. Over dinner, you can break down the facts.
Here’s what you both should know.
Caution: If she is allergic to cucumbers, DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS.
1 MAKE SURE THEY ARE ORGANIC
The vagina is a mucus membrane that provides direct access into the bloodstream. So when shopping for cucumbers make sure they are organic and grown without the use of pesticides or genetic modification. Only the best is recommended for your girl’s most sacred area. You can find organic cucumbers at most grocery retailers. Stores like Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods Market are great options.
2 CHOOSE THE CORRECT SIZE
Vaginas come in different sizes, and so do cucumbers. Some women can insert a larger cucumber with ease while others may experience pain with added girth. Choose a cucumber that is the proper size for what your girl can accommodate—use your, ahem, personal knowledge to judge. There are two types of cucumbers: slicing and pickling. Slicing cucumbers are larger and have a thicker skin, while pickling cucumbers are smaller with thinner skin.
3 USE COCONUT OIL AS LUBE
Encourage your partner to use organic coconut oil to thoroughly lubricate the cucumber prior to initial insertion and masturbation. You can assist her in this act by applying the coconut oil to her vaginal opening and onto the cucumber. Make sure to be gentle and slow with insertion if she allows you to do more than watch her playtime.
4 PEEL THE SKIN TO RECEIVE THE CLEANSING PROPERTIES
Cucumbers are used in beauty products regularly because of the anti-inflammatory properties. It’s completely safe to treat your girl’s vagina to the same benefits. Use a sharp knife or a potato peeler to carefully remove the skin from the cucumber to create a smooth surface. Give the cucumber a wash in cool water to rinse away any left behind skin. When the skin is peeled from the cucumber, its fruit is exposed, granting the user access to the hydrating and detoxifying properties. Cucumbers contain anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and cancer fighting agents—it’s like having a spa day for her yoni.
5 TWIST IN AND OUT SLOWLY
It’s playtime. The average vagina won’t break a cucumber in half, just remember to take things slowly to avoid any complications. Once the cucumber is prepped and ready to go, instruct your partner to twist the cucumber slowly within the vagina while guiding it in and out. This process is slow, controlled and filled with intention and should be practiced for about 20 minutes. Be gentle, encourage her to breathe deeply and even close her eyes while you assist her vagina in cleansing and healing.
6 RELAX AND ENJOY
The cucumber masturbation cleanse is more than just a way for her to reach a climax. It is also a massage technique for the yoni. Encourage her to just chill out. The cucumber is here to serve her with all of its hydrating powers. Enjoy watching or engaging with her in the experience. You can feel like a boss knowing you helped your partner learn a new way to care for her sacred space.
