What is Pillow Humping? How to Pillow Hump?

by | Sensual Intimacy

Oct 20, 2023

Pillow humping has raised a number of questions, most of which border around whether it works or if it is safe. In this article, I provide detailed answers to questions about pillow humping and show you how to do it right.

What is Pillow Humping?

As the name already suggests, pillow humping is a form of self-pleasure that involves the use of pillows to stimulate one’s genitals. 

It is a common practice among men and has been around for quite some time. 

Around 80 percent of men who pillow hump agree that it feels good and closer to actual sex than just stimulating one’s genitals with their hands. 

Does it Work?

Of course, it does. If it did not, not many men would do it. 

It is very possible to get an orgasm when you pillow hump. In fact, you should get an orgasm each time you pillow hump.

Is Pillow Humping Safe? 

Yes. It is. Pillow humping does not prove harmful to you mentally or physically if you do it right. 

This is why it is very important to be certain you are doing the humping just right every single time you decide to pillow hump. 

How to Pillow Hump

It is fairly simple to pillow hump, and you do not need anything too extra. You only need a pillow and a bed to put yourself in a very stable mental position. 

This is how to pillow hump perfectly: 

1. Get in The Mood

Like sex and all other forms of masturbation, pillow humping needs a mood. You need to be in the right mood, and this means: you don’t have to be so averse to it.

Let it not feel like someone is forcing you. Do it because you want to, and do it when you want to. 

You can get in the mood by playing some sensual music in the background and thinking thoughts that turn you on even more. 

It is in this mood that you ought to take your clothes off. A number of people suggest that humping works whether or not you have clothes on. 

I do not think this is right. It may work when you have clothes on, yes, but if you do want to enjoy humping the way you should, and you should, you have got to do it with your clothes off.

2. Choose the Right Pillow

Your pillow choice is going to affect, to a large extent, the sensations you get when you begin to hump. The best pillows are: 

– Soft: and I mean soft all round. There should be no lumps or hard areas. If you can press the pillow in without applying much force, then it is great for humping. 

Hard pillows can usually hurt you or make you feel a lot less pleasure during humping. 

– Clean: Always use clean pillows. There should not be wet. In fact, be sure that your body is properly dried before you start to hump.

 Wet bodies may make the pillow feel messy, and if you happen to be someone who hates wet objects, you can be very turned off by this. 

3. Choose the Perfect Position

Just as it is with sex, there are a number of favored positions with humping.

They all offer a wide array of sensations, and so it is on you to choose which one works best for you. 

Some of the best humping positions are: 

The Classic Position: the classic position is the classic position for a reason, being that it is the oldest and most common pillow-humping position. 

Entering into the classic position is very simple. Lay some pillows beneath your thighs as you lay on your stomach. 

It is that simple. Be sure that you are comfortable and take extra precautions to see to it that the pillows will not hurt you by the time you begin to hump.

The Side Guy: you become the side guy when you lay on your side with pillows by you. 

This position is best for people who feel some strain on their shoulders when they try out the classic position. 

The side guy eliminates this pain and makes things feel a lot better.

Edge Walker: the edge walker is a near-perfect position that helps make things a lot more intense. With the edge walker, you are to lay on your side just like you did with the side guy, the only difference being that this time, you should be on the edge of the bed so that you put in extra effort not to fall off. 

The Sack Guy: here, you use more than two pillows. You use as many as it takes to make you feel intense pleasure. You can use as many as ten if that is what it takes. Just be sure that you feel a lot of pleasure.

5. Move, and do It Right

You should move and move right when you are humping. 

The best way to move is as though you are having sex: you should rock your groin against the pillows, repeating moves that arouse you most. 

If you notice moving a certain way gives you more pleasure, then you should perform that move more. 

Use your imagination, too. Imagine thoughts that further arouse you. The more aroused you are, the easier it will be to cum.

6. Climax

You can reach climax by just pillow-humping. You do this by: 

Stroking right: as said before, you have got to rock your groin right. You have got also to repeat moves that make you feel good.

Giving Yourself Time: yes, you have got to give yourself time and enjoy what you are doing. Do not try too hard to climax already. Let your body do what it wants when it wants to.

Erotic videos: erotic films can help. Of course, erotic movies have been described as being ‘exhilarating.’ It can be! Use it to your advantage. 

Humping feels great when you do it right.
