Tracey Cox is probably the world's sexiest sexpert. Born in England but having moved to Australia where she became a renowned sex writer, Tracey Cox knows her stuff when it comes to all things sexual. So how better than Tracey to give you 10 good reasons why you should masturbate on a regular basis?
The following excerpt is taken from Tracey Cox's Hot Sex: How To Do It (published by Corgi).
10 Good Reasons To Masturbate:
1. It feels fantastic
2. It teaches us about our own body: what turns us on, what doesn't. Masturbation helps you identify what your basic sexual needs are and how best to satisfy them. Pass this on to your partner and you have a solid basis for a sizzling sex life.
3. It releases tension and helps us sleep – a secret sleeping pill without any side effects!
4. It teaches us to separate love from sex. We're more able to distinguish sex affairs from love affairs because we realise having an orgasm doesn't mean we're in love.
5. If you're single, it stops you climbing the walls or sleeping with the first guy or girl you meet.
6. It's totally safe
7. It's a great beauty treatment. Orgasm improves circulation, combats the effects of stress and makes skin glow!
8. You can concentrate purely on your own pleasure without worrying about someone else!
9. The more you masturbate, the more orgasms you'll be capable of having both with and without your partner. The more you do it, the easier they are to reach!
10. Being able to give yourself an orgasm is true sexual independence.
Sex isn't complicated, especially when you have a Heavy Metal 5-inch dildo between your legs. So if the best offer you have this week is a fumbled fuck with the geek from IT, tell him 'no thanks' and pummel your pussy with this slice of orgasmic metal-ness instead.
I've had a few private messages from guys asking how to fist a girl. It's true that some women love a huge amount of penetration in the form of fisting, and some love to be fisted regularly, so here goes…
Before we go any further, here's a word of warning: each woman's pain threshold is different, so if you are going to try fisting your lover, keep asking her throughout if she's OK, if she's enjoying it and, for god's sake, stop when she tells you to stop!
Regardless of whether you're a lothario in bed or someone in desperate need of experience, these Top 5 Tips For Mind-Blowing Sex will make you so hot in the sack your lover will be panting for more…
Sex tip 1: use lubricant
Having sex without lube is like trying to shove a pineapple up your ass. It's rough, painful and in no way erotic. You and your lover deserve better, and no amount of natural sex juices can be a good slathering of lubricant. Plus, you can get lubes that warm up or cool down your naughty bits; make them tingle or extra sensitive to touch, and make them taste like pineapples, strawberries or bubblegum. You can't say that for your man's juices after a night on the ale and cigarettes…
Nothing is straightforward when it comes to sex, especially when it comes to which positions you should try out. I often prefer going on top because it gives me more control over the situation – I get to control the pace of the thrusts, how far his penis goes in and how fast we fuck – but some of my friends would rather run naked down the street than straddle their boyfriends.
At first I couldn't understand where they were coming from, because I know that one sure-fire way for me to orgasm through fucking is to get on top and grind my pussy and clit against my lover's penis and abdomen. But then they started to explain that it's more about being comfortable exposing their bodies in such a position and, also, worrying about whether they'll be able to fuck their man to orgasm like he has done to them many times before.
Of course, I can see where they're coming from to an extent, but that shouldn't get in the way of being able to enjoy a kick-ass sex position that is more likely to get you off than lying underneath your man, hoping he can do the trick. Like anything you're not sure of, it's always best to try it out for short periods of time to begin with, even if this means rolling on top of your lover, sliding in his penis but keeping your body very close or directly on top of his, just like he does with you. You can then start gently rocking back and forth and he will enjoy the close contact with your body at this level.
When you're more confident and feel ready to sit up and fuck, here are some great tips for the basic Woman On Top position:

I'm into a bit of pain when I'm having sex, so when I tried out nipple clamps for the first time in ages last night, I was pleasantly reminded about how erotic they are. I love the way they make my nipples instantly hard and how the more turned on I get the tighter they squeeze my nipples, giving me a more intense shot of pain.
Last night I had sex with a girl called Liz, and she clapped my nipples while going down on me. It felt fucking amazing to have her licking me out while the clamps tightened around my nipples as she gave them suggestive little tugs with her fingers. The pain did get quite intense after about five minutes, but if you love to straddle the pain/pleasure barrier as much as I do then nipple clamps will drive you wild.

The greatest kisses are the ones that make the entire world around you stop spinning; when all you can think about is how amazing this one moment feels and how you never, ever want this kiss to end. Kisses have several purposes: you kiss your friends, relatives and acquaintances to say hello and goodbye, and to be affectionate, but you also kiss your lover more often than not as a pre-cursor to sex.
You may think that kissing your lover on the lips is the most direct way to turn them on, but your lips are made to kiss other parts as well. Kissing your lover's earlobes, fingertips, toes, tummy and neck (especially the nape), the inside of their thighs (while building up to giving them head) and their buttocks will turn them on just as much. To make things a lot tastier, spread some ID Juicy lube in Bubblegum flavour and slather it on the parts of your lover's body you want to kiss. Flavoured lube on the inside of your lover's thighs, for instance, will make you even more enthusiastic about giving them great head.
Having said all that, a really wet, really passionate kiss planted on your lover's mouth will knock them for six. It's easy to take kissing for granted and see it as something you have to do to get to what you hope is coming next, ie, sex. But kisses can be ultra erotic if you put the effort in. It's not just about what you're doing with your lips and your tongue; it's about using your hands too.
