Humping: the masturbation method to (re)discover!

Explore your sensations and bring your body to orgasm without hands or even undressing? (Dry) humping (or sometimes grinding or frotti-frotta in French) is a very popular masturbation technique, solo or in a duo but without hands! We tell you more about this one-way ticket to orgasm.

Humping/grinding: what is it?

Humping grinding toy

Humping is a particular masturbation technique. Also called grinding or frotti-frotta in French (explicit but less sexy translation), it is very popular in the United States. This involves rubbing your genitals against…. Just about anything! The idea is that you don't use your hands, and in the case of dry humping, you're never completely naked.

Humping has long been seen as an adolescent practice (discovery of sexuality, orgasm for two without penetration... lots of advantages). But make no mistake, there are indeed many adults who indulge in it. It is in particular Camille Aumont Carnel, alias ' Je m'en combat le clito ' on Instagram who speaks openly about the pleasure that it can give her and her subscribers agree with her!

How do we do ?

If you want to stay dressed (for dry humping), you will prefer a fabric light enough not to get irritated, or even in underwear, you move back and forth with an object (or a person) between your hands. legs which will rub on the clitoris and provide (a lot) of pleasure. You can get in the mood with a little dim light, music, a naughty scenario in your head, the image of your partner or a sexy stranger (basically give free rein to your imagination, as long as you like it!). Or quickly done well in his room if that's your preference. When it comes to masturbation, the only rules are yours .

Humping is hands-free, but nothing stops you from taking the opportunity to use them for something else, like caressing your chest for example, for even more pleasure if it's an erogenous zone for you. Or to hold on to your sheets, if you need help to keep up the movement!

The benefits of humping

Humping / dry humping has several advantages:

  • No need to undress;
  • We can do it with lots of objects;
  • It is practiced alone or in pairs;
  • If you're not familiar with the technique, it's a bit different (you can also spice up your sex life solo).

What are the tools and techniques for practicing humping?

Everyone has their own humping technique. You can indulge in it by rubbing against your partner: thigh, sex (or other, if you are inventive)... The key is not to put your hands (and that the other person is consenting of course, it's always useful to remember this).

But humping is also very fun solo. To do this, we need to replace the partner with an object. Among the most classic ones we often find a cushion, the edge of the bed, the armrest of the sofa, a sex toy of course… And some are also designed for this purpose.



This is the case with Whym, by Pelle , soft, non-vibrating pebbles, specifically designed for your humping and grinding sessions. They allow you to fully experience this moment of sensuality and intense pleasure, while taking care of your privacy. Its extraordinary texture, which is a bit reminiscent of marshmallow (you have to touch it to understand), is perfectly adapted to your anatomy for increased sensations thanks to the combination of softness to the touch and ability to apply pressure right where it’s needed.


These 2 rollers are textured differently to find the perfect grip, each with a front side and a back side, both usable. Varied options that offer many sensations, it's up to you to find your move, or on the contrary to vary the pleasures.

To use it, you can place the pebble in the palm of your hand (or on the famous cushion or other object associated with your humping). Once again, there are as many possibilities as there are paths that your imagination takes according to your desires.

Is humping dangerous?

This technique made headlines recently after an article published by BMJ Case Reports. An Australian man ended up in the emergency room for practicing too much dry humping with his partner. Arriving at the hospital with a penis that had been swollen for three weeks, he then had an abscess and had to be operated on. Don't panic, he came out without any after-effects. And let's be honest, it's still very, very rare. But prevention is better than cure, so as not to hurt yourself, you go gently, you choose objects whose material will respect your privacy. Pleasure yes, pain no. All the more reason to use suitable objects, for solo masturbation but according to the rules of the art!
