  • Gives you a better understanding of your body and what it likes
  • Increased control over your own pleasure
  • Ensures you stay in the moment
  • More intense orgasms
  • Improved sexual stamina

What Are Some Edging Techniques? 

1. Start & Stop

Stop stimulation when you’re close to an orgasm. Relax then resume again.

2. Stop & Squeeze (penis-owners)

When you’re about to orgasm, squeeze just below the head of your penis and stop. Then resume stimulation again.

3. Speed Combination (vulva-owners)

Start slow with rhythmic stokes along the labia. Mix in some fast strokes or circular motions on the clit. Add variation with the different patterns and intensities on a sex toy! When you’re about to orgasm, slow down, relax and then repeat.

4. Diversion

When you’re reaching your climax, divert stimulation to other erogenous zones eg: nipples, neck, thighs, then resume.
