10 Ways to Get Aroused without Watching Porn

With the digital age, porn is rife. Anyone with an Internet connection and a smartphone or computer is able to access adult films, and many have turned to it as a way in which to masturbate and orgasm. 

And while there is nothing wrong with watching porn, it can sometimes be a crutch, like an easy way to get aroused without tapping into our more sensual and intuitive side. But we're creative and imaginative human beings. We have the power to turn to other sources of stimulation in order to get aroused without watching porn.

With these 10 suggestions, we hope that you not only find different and interesting ways to enjoy your solo sessions or partnered fun, but also experience a different kind of intimacy.

Porn can sometimes be quite intense and oftentimes degrading, especially towards women. Let's change the narrative and engage in new ways to raise your libido, and to be more ethical in the ways in which we gain our most beautiful climaxes.

1. Nipple Play

The nipples are packed with nerve endings, and they're a great gateway to all kinds of pleasure. In fact, when the nipples are stimulated, it activates the same region of the brain as when the genitals are stimulated. Isn't that interesting? Nipple play, especially for women, has the power to even bring about orgasms! Start by slowly touching the areola, inching closer to the nipple. You could do circles around them or even flick them if that feels good. Or, you might enjoy using a vibrator on your nipples, such as a wand, to get you feeling hot and bothered.

2. Play Adult Sex Games

Tap into a different kind of play as opposed to the run-of-the-mill foreplay and penetration. Playing adult games is a fun and interactive way to spend quality time with your partner while gaining arousal. And who doesn't like to play games? There are tons of sexy adult games available for all different tastes. Why not consider Monogamy, an award-winning board game for couples. It comes with over 400 erotic cards to enjoy new and exciting activities with your lover, which could be just as saucy as watching porn (or even more so). 

3. Take an Erotic Bath

Taking a nice warm bath is the quintessential of self-care. It not only calms the body and mind, but also promotes blood flow. Do you know what that means? That your genitals will be extra sensitive! It's the perfect time to get that throbbing feeling, and to relax. Or better yet, add a waterproof sex toy into the mix and make it an affair you'll never forget.

4. Sexy Yoga

Did you know that tantric yoga has the ability to give you long, strong, and amazing orgasm? It's also a way in which to slow you down and enjoy the process of intimacy with a partner. But even if you're solo, simply light some candles and get your body moving. Doing yoga positions and stretching awakens your body, and allows you to feel more in-tune with yourself. Try the downward dog in a sensual manner and see how amazing it makes you feel when you experience it in a more sexual way.

5. Erotic Audio & Erotic Literature

Instead of watching something, try listening to erotic audio. These types of media allow you to use your imagination and to visualise what you're listening to in your own way. As for erotic literature, this too is an excellent way to get those juices flowing, slowly and steadily increase your arousal, leading to some blissful and lovely orgasms.

6. Practice Breath Work

"Focusing on your breath is the most direct way to get out of your head and into your body," says Azaria Menezes, sex and relationship coach. And this is great because many people, especially women, find themselves preoccupied during play time, whether it's alone or with someone else. Close your eyes and breathe deeply and slowly. Try different patterns and hold for three seconds before releasing, and find your very best rhythm. This may just pave the way for much-deserved carefree euphoria.

7. Fantasise! 

We're all capable of having intense and alluring fantasies! So why not get into your own groove by imagining doing all of the things that you most desire? Whether it's trying a new position, having a threesome, exploring BDSM, or anything else, when you fantasise, you're the narrator of your own thoughts!

8. Re-Read Old Sexts

Take yourself back to a time where you had a sizzling hot sexting experience with someone. You were so in the moment, turned on, and dying to play with yourself. Now, go back to those old sexts and re-create the magic once again. There is a lot of power in words, and remember: a picture is worth a thousand words, so if you've received some racy photos from a new or old lover, keep them for your sexy sessions.

9. Do a Boudoir Shoot

When we take care of ourselves, we feel our best. Confidence is so sexy, so finding the right avenue in which to feel confident is so important. For some, getting dressed up in sexy lingerie and doing their own private boudoir shoot is the perfect way to gain self-esteem, to look back at how deliciously gorgeous they are, and to actually turn themselves on! Doing a boudoir shoot is a lot of fun too, so that's always a bonus.

10. Sex Toys!

You can never go wrong by adding in a sex toy or two into your masturbation routine or couples adventures. There are so many to choose from, and you have the ability to really stimulate your sweetest spots however you fancy. Who needs porn when there's a device out there with your name on it, waiting to give you all kinds of orgasms?

So, will you be ditching the adult films and opting for new ways to get aroused without porn? Give it a try, you may surprise yourself!
