We had been seeing each other and sleeping together for a few months when he first asked me how I liked to touch myself when I was alone.
He recently asked me to pleasure myself in front of him, and it's not the first time he has made this request. I've heard this can be really hot for couples and I want to try it, but I'm worried I'll feel awkward the whole time. How can I masturbate for my BF without feeling so uncomfortable?
