Reid: Go Cathy.

Cathy: [Laughing] Sorry, I’m distracted by your hair.

Reid: So am I or I’ll do the whole video like this.

Cathy: [Laughing]

Reid: This would be perfect.

Cathy: It makes you look taller.

Reid: Hi, I’m Reid Mihalko from and you’re not seeing my hair right now.

Cathy: And I’m Cathy Vartuli from and…

Reid: What are we talking about today Cathy?

Cathy: Someone wrote in and asked. He said, “Can you get blisters from masturbation?”

Reid: Can you get…yes, yes the answer is yes.

Cathy: Is that your personal experience?

Reid: The real question is blisters where and where do you get blisters first?

Cathy: Um you know when I read this I assumed that the gen…it was a gentleman who wrote it in that it was on his penis but I actually don’t know, he did not specify.

Reid: Yeah. I mean I’ve…yup, just saying.

Cathy: Would you like to normalize it for people? I have never gotten blisters. I’ve gotten sore.

Reid: Yeah?

Cathy: But I’ve never gotten blisters.

Reid: Well, so with penis owners you can totally get blisters from not using lube on your penis. I don’t know that I’ve ever gotten one on my hand from jerking on.

Cathy: So that [Inaudible 00:01:12] form maybe?

Reid: No, but I’ve also gotten like rug burns on my knees and things like that.

Cathy: Yeah, I’ve got that.

Reid: So again it’s totally possible and the big advice is…

Cathy: Use lube

Reid: Right because lube because lube. Please use lube. Why do you need blisters on your genitals?

Cathy: That sounds painful

Reid: For a vulva owner perhaps it is different but again like let’s say you’re into like humping the hell out of the arm of your…your favorite couch or something, right? I have friends that are humpers and like again you don’t want to lube up your couch but you know fabric

Cathy: Yeah, if you tell them first

Reid: fabric fric…

Cathy: Oh.

Reid: fabric friction could result in problems, right? Just chafing on your inner thighs and things like that.

Cathy: Yeah

Reid: So you have to be clever folks and be smart, play smart.

Cathy: Yes and play hard that’s smart.

Reid: mm-hmm

Cathy: Yeah, so invest in some great lube, Uberlube is great that stays nice slick for a while

Reid: mm-hmm

Cathy: and yeah I hope…

Reid: You might want to get certain toys

Cathy: Yeah

Reid: you know like

Cathy: The…the masturbation sleeves help with that at all? It might help with the blisters on your fingers.

Reid: Man! I mean if you got blisters on your fingers, I mean…I mean email me and…and tell me what’s going on because I just want to know but again like [Inaudible 00:02:38] can be great for…for vulvas you know there’s certain silicon tech like Sybian which is a sit on rhythm vibrator has a bunch of silicon attachments that are kind of nubby or different textures and stuff like that so you can find sex toys or situations depending on the kind of sensation that you’re looking for that are better suited than cloth on…on skin

Cathy: Yeah

Reid: or you know something dry that’s gonna be rough.

Cathy: Right

Reid: And then you know start being clever about things if what you really want is you know the sensation of humping a you know rough corduroy chair arm or pillow you know then is there a way for you to augment the experience in ways that allow you to achieve what you’re looking for without like this abrasive duration, right?

Cathy: Yeah

Reid: Is it the pillow plus a Hitachi Magic Wand on your clit while you’re humping so that you can get off and feel satisfied rather than having to like hump yourself raw.

Cathy: Yeah and if you’re a vulva owner, I’m curious have you ever gotten blisters? Please leave comments below if you feel comfortable sharing that.

Reid: And also I will say that fast and furious and not well lubed anal play you know can result in

Cathy: Tears

Reid: in injuries

Cathy: Yeah

Reid: and you know just be careful with yourselves folks like these these are glorious instruments of pleasure and sometimes that pain, that edge feels good.

Cathy: Especially when you’re turned on but later it may not feel so great.

Reid: Yeah I mean I’ve jerked off too hard and or humped too hard and then you know had a sore appendage. So, there you go.

Cathy: Thanks for writing in. We love that you’re asking these questions and helping to normalize sex for everybody so thank you very much. Please leave comments and suggestions below.

Reid: Yeah.
