If you’re a sexually active adult and you’ve experimented with bringing yourself to the edge of an orgasm only to stop and start again, then you’ve tried Edging. The common definition of edging is simple, though I’ve heard it called Tantra Stimulation too, it is the practice of bringing yourself to the brink of orgasm through masturbation, then stopping or changing stimuli, then starting again, each time bringing your pleasure right to the edge, but not all the way over the cliff to orgasm. The reasoning behind it is that when you do let yourself go, it’s supposed to be one of the most intense and pleasurable orgasms you can achieve.
Edging is not a gender specific practice either. Men and women alike participate in it either alone or with a partner. More couples than ever are using edging as part of their intimacy rituals possibly because it spices up their lovemaking. In addition, edging is a pretty popular search on porn and other adult sites. Though some people believe edging is best done with your hand due to the control you have over it, others engage in sex toy play for edging purposes. The choice is whichever you’re more comfortable with.
As one of its positive benefits, edging helps one to concentrate completely on what your body is telling you or your sexual response is to different stimuli. Many times during sex we don’t often pay attention to exactly what our bodies are saying or doing, distractions can come pretty easy. Another benefit is that if you’re doing it with a partner, it will help you to pay better attention to how your partner’s body and sexual response is. Doing it properly means that you have to be very turned into what is going on with your partner, but also it helps you to live in the moment instead of worrying about the big finish.
In case you’re wondering about negative side effects of edging, there are no proven scientific facts to be found that point to it being unsafe for yours or your partner’s health.
No matter if you are doing it on your own, or with a partner, in the end edging can help give you the most gratifying climax you or your partner have never experienced. Try edging on your own or with your mate, and see if it changes anything for you or not. Like the old saying goes, “Don’t knock it til you try it.”
