Guided Masturbation
People en Español author Karla Montalván reached out to me about how to integrate guided masturbation into your sex life to increase your overall sexual pleasure, and of course I was more than glad to lend my expertise. Here is a synposis of the article with my further comments interspersed in italics. A link to the full article is included below.

A More Pleasurable Sex Life is Possible with Guided Masturbation

In an exclusive interview with People Chica, Dr. Heather Jeffcoat shares tips on how women can achieve more intense orgasms and greater self-pleasure.

The world of masturbation continues to be an unknown territory, especially when it comes to women. (Well maybe not so much unknown, but rather untapped to its fullest potential.)

From the plethora of sex toys readily available in the market to myths about sexuality, it can be confusing to find joy in personal pleasure. However, masturbation is an important part of women's sexual health and once incorporated as part of a self-care routine, can bring great benefits to one's mental and physical well-being. (Long gone are the days when you had to visit a 'sex shop' to find toys like these!)

To demystify the world of guided masturbation, Dr. Heather Jeffcoat with plusOne, shared the benefits of self-pleasure with People Chica as well as her best tips and recommendations on how to increase sexual pleasure through masturbation.

Some people may still feel like masturbating alone or in front of a partner is taboo. How do you find guided masturbation can help?

Sex of any kind, including masturbation, is unfortunately still a taboo topic. It can be a challenge for folks to learn their anatomy, where on their body to go to experience pleasure, and how to stimulate it for arousal and orgasm.

Once you know what works best for you, this will allow a starting point for communication with your partner on your preferences. You don't need to masturbate in front of your partner unless it is something you are both interested in. If you do, you should feel safe discussing and exploring your bodies individually as well as together. (Hot Tip: find what works for you solo, then introduce your partner to what you've discovered, either a little at a time or all at once, whatever feels right for you.)

How does guided masturbation work and who can benefit from it?

Guided masturbation provides a roadmap for self-exploration, which can also translate to better-partnered sex by knowing what works best for your body. If you don't know how to stimulate yourself, there is bound to be frustration with your partner if you are unable to provide direction. Every body is different. Do you prefer clitoral stimulation only? Do you require clitoral plus breast or nipple stimulation? Have you ever located your clitoris before?

Do you prefer deep or lighter pressure over the clitoris? Do you prefer pressure near the clitoris, but directly over the glans (the portion of the clitoris that peeks out of the hood) is too much? Have you explored stimulation around the crura (or 'legs') of the clitoris? Being able to self-identify your preferences is empowering whether you continue to engage in solo play or with a partner. (Click here to learn lots more about the clitoris on our site.)

Testimonial by S.B.

As someone who suffered the debilitating physical and emotional effects of vaginismus (as well as a complicated history of back injuries) for more than 15 years, I thought a "normal" life was just a fantasy. Then I found Heather.

Testimonial by Y.L. (mom of 2)

After having my second baby via C-section I searched for months to try to find help for my lower back pain and separated abdominal muscles. I finally came across Heather Jeffcoat via a mommy blog. I reached out to her via email and set my first appointment. My first appointment went amazing … she listened to what my symptoms, check my separation and explained to me in detail what the next steps would be. Not only did my abdominal separation go from 3 to about 1 -1/2 but my back has pain has significantly reduced. I’m personally recommending all my mommy friends to Heather!

Testimonial by M.M.

My husband and I were married for 5 years and unable to have intercourse, but I never knew why. After numerous awful experiences at doctor’s offices (where many doctors told me I “just needed to relax”), a surgery that didn’t fix the problem, and a year of owning dilators that didn’t get me anywhere, someone finally referred me to Heather for Physical Therapy. I finally had answers and information from someone who knew exactly what I was dealing with!

Testimonial by S.H., age 24

I just wanted to thank you for everything you've done for me for the past 19 months. I literally could not have reached my goals without you and your practice. You gave me the courage to keep moving forth with my treatment no matter how afraid and anxious I was. You were always there to answer questions and made this whole process so much easier than I expected it to be.

It's because of you that my marriage is on the right track, that I can get pregnant and that this part of my life is finally over. I really feel that Fusion Wellness is a team of people you can call family and are there to root for you and cheer you on until you reach your goals. There is nothing better than knowing I accomplished this with you guys by my side and as calmly and patiently as I needed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for always being there and helping me reach my goals.

Testimonial by Ann V.

I wish i could give this place 10 stars!! 
I have been suffering from vaginismus for 5 years and never found the cure to it. I had seen an ob/gyn and he diagnosed me with vaginismus and told me i needed a surgery to cure my condition, which i refused to do. He also referred me to a PT that he works with, i had given them multiple calls and they never responded back to me, so i started searching yelp for another PT. I am SO HAPPY I found Heather's office! I was working with Laureen, and with her guidance and techniques i was able to be cured from vaginismus in only 2 1/2 short months!!! I couldn't believe how quickly their program worked for me! I am forever grateful and thankful from Heather, and Laureen! They are the absolute best at what they do!

Testimonial by Alexandra B.

Heather is without exaggerating AMAZING! After years of trouble with a certain part of my body, in no time, she made everything change back to equilibrium and to what would be considered normal. She explains everything in detail and therefore gives you a better understanding of why things are the way they are, and how you can work towards turning things around. I would highly recommend Heather for any type of Physical Therapy. She has created her own "Method/Therapy" through years of studying (with some of the greatest practitioners), practice and breaking down the issues of her past patients, enabling her to fine tune her own system. I'm so thankful to have found her, and I'm especially grateful for the quick recovery I've achieved, after years of distress. If you cannot afford her, I recommend you purchase her book. Although it may not be Heather in person, it can still help you to get on the right path to recovery!
