Syntribation 101: An Underrated Way to Please Yourself

Please yourself

Let’s hop on a time machine and travel back to the moment you experienced your sexual awakening.

You must’ve been curious because all your friends at school are talking about it, and you don’t want to be left out.

You also must’ve been nervous because you probably still lived with your parents or relatives and you didn’t want them figuring out what you were up to and avoiding getting scolded.

So, you were discreet about it. You ask your friends for some tips and apply them in the privacy of your bedroom.

If before was already scary, being in the thick of your first masturbation was even scarier – but, you managed to pull through and it genuinely felt good.

You’re so proud of yourself because you did it as safely and hygienically as you could and you can’t wait to tell your friends all about it.

But when the time comes to share your experience, you’re met with confused looks – they don’t know what you’re talking about. They’re not even sure if there’s a name for the way you explored your intimate zones.

The fear returns and you decide that from that moment on, this special way of making yourself feel good would be kept secret for as long as you live. You’ve become too afraid to express yourself in fear of getting embarrassed.

Fast forward to the present day and a lot of developments have taken place in sexual education.

You’ll be surprised, and hopefully relieved, to find out that one of them acknowledges your way of masturbation – Syntribation.

What is Syntribation?

According to Well + Good, Syntribation is the act of achieving pleasure by crossing your legs and squeezing them together, or grinding against your thighs.

In much more simpler (and fun) terms, it’s like thigh-humping but solo and hands-free!

If you’re reading this and getting an “a-ha” moment, that’s totally valid!

In fact, a lot of people actually participate in syntribation but because of the stigma surrounding it, it becomes a secret yet underrated form of masturbation.

But now it’s time to bring it out into the light and let people know that isn’t something to be confused about. Instead, it’s something many others could try because of the many benefits it brings!

From the same article, syntribation as a hands-free form of masturbation, it allows you to practice wherever you want! You’re not required to get naked, nor are you required to use your hands, toys or even a partner’s penis – it is an art form meant for your hips and thighs and once you’ve gotten the hang of it, even Shakira could tell you your hips don’t lie!

Although, there is one tiny caveat to remember. As syntribation deals with a lot of friction, you might experience skin irritation if you do it too often so based on personal experience, do pace yourself and consistently moisturize your skin with lotion!

Can everybody do it?

According to Mel Magazine, yes! Everybody could do it! While syntribation is very popular with women or people who have a vulva – it can also be done by men or people who have a penis!

The process is slightly different – you’d have to take the extra step of trapping your dick between your legs before using your hips up and down. Think of this as a different way of stroking your own dick or a unique approach to thigh-fucking!

This is definitely a masturbation technique that welcomes anyone since it makes use of a body part we all have – our beautiful, strong legs!

Can you add more onto this?

Of course! Your sexual experience shouldn’t be confined to one thing at a time. If doing so is your preference, that’s great! The important part is that it is a willing decision on your part!

But if you want to take things up a notch, Allure has some other forms of masturbation that you could pair with syntribation:


The closest cousin of syntribation! You can definitely warm yourself up by grinding on things other than your own two legs like a pillow, a blanket, or if you’re feeling frisky – a TV remote or hairbrush handle! Just make sure to sanitize them before you get on!

Watch or Read Porn

Since syntribation is hands-free, you can definitely run a playlist of your favorite porn clips or open up your current steamy read before you relax and cross your legs for a long night full of acting upon your wildest dreams without ever putting a pause to the other aspects at play and contributing to your pleasure.

Just remember that pressure isn’t a part of the vocabulary – take your time in turning yourself on and take even more time to find a hip rhythm that suits you and before you know it, you’re getting the sheets wet with your cum!

Use Hands-Free Sex Toys

Last but certainly not the least, you can ask for the support of sex toys to help you intensify or stabilize your pleasure! Remember to use toys that are designed to be hands-free so that all you have to do is to turn it on and leave it to its own devices!

Juntame has a few recommendations for you:

The Dolphin is an excellent choice if you want vibrations to be felt on your g-spot and clit so it’s not just a double the pleasure – it’s triple! We don’t know about you, but that’s definitely a fast ticket to paradise.


The Jolie is an excellent choice especially for men or people with penises because this vibrating ring and butt plug can provide added stimulation to the penis and anus so you’ll feel wonderfully full all over!


There you have it! A quick guide to an underrated way of pleasuring yourself – syntribation! May reading this lessen the stigma that you carry and move your forward to a more open-minded view of what sex means! Enjoy this unique experience and tell us all about it in the comments below!
