My hubby and I love to masturbate together. It wasn't until quite a few years after we got married that we discovered that we both loved masturbating, and had been doing so privately all the time that we were also having sex together.
Although we both like intercourse as well (who doesn't!), the thing that gets us most turned on is to masturbate in front of each other. I love watching him stroking away at his cock while I am playing with myself, and we will often do this while watching porn together. This always leads on eventually to intercourse, and because we've got ourselves incredibly turned on by then we both have wonderfully intense orgasms.
Because we are totally open with each other about our masturbation, I will often tell him when I am feeling really horny and he doesn't feel the need to join in if he doesn't feel like it. So sometimes I will just settle down on the couch (or go up to bed for ten or fifteen minutes), pull my pants down and go at it until I have a great orgasm, while he is just going about his business. The fact that he can see me while I am stroking away (or knows I am doing it upstairs in bed) greatly adds to my arousal and pleasure.
Likewise, he feels free to do the same, although seeing him slip his clothes down and start stroking away at his gorgeous hard cock nearly always makes me change my mind about the importance of what I was doing and join him in some self-pleasuring of my own.
We also often tell each other later on when we have indulged in a session by ourselves, and I love the thought of him settling down by himself with his hand and his cock and maybe a sexy book or film, stroking away until he comes, and I particularly like the fact that I know what naughty things he is getting up to by himself. It's probably my biggest fantasy when I am masturbating by myself, thinking about him doing likewise. We share sexy books all the time for our solo activities, and we fold over the corner of the pages which were the ones that got us off best.
So all in all we are both avid masturbators and get a real thrill from the fact that we are both doing it, whether together or by ourselves. Keep up the masturbation, all of you, and make sure that your partner knows about it-it definitely keeps sex alive for us!
I'm getting a real thrill from telling you about all of this (I love the thought of other people knowing about my masturbation), so please let me know if you enjoy hearing about it and I will tell more about what we get up to.
