Up to 95 percent of men and 89 to 92 percent of women masturbate, it’s probably safe to say that no one really needs much convencing to keep doing it. Yes, I am going there. So if you are one of those people whom are slightly squeamish and don’t approve of this topic than please avert your eyes. Thank you because I am diving into this one head first, so to speak. And yes I will cover the health benefits for men. However, since I am a woman I will start with the women first. For instance; It has been proven that masturbation has many health benefits. For women, masturbation can help prevent cervical infections and urinary tract infections through the process of “tenting,” or the opening of the cervix that occurs as part of the arousal process. But let’s get into some fun facts for you men out there:
- Masturbation does not have the health benefits that sex does: your body does respond differently and no one seems to know why
- It is not risk-free: there is a risk of skin irritation if you utilize a lube or lotion that will irritate your skin (use water based lubes)
- For those that have allergic reactions I recommend they use: Coconu Water based lube. This lube it is completely natural, offers a silky texture and will not change your bodies PH. Added bonus you don’t need to clean yourself after as it it water based so this will evaporate and dissolve.
- There is no normal amount of “Masturbation”: Guys tend to obsess about how much they masturbate. However, there is no normal set amount so relax guys!
On a lighter note Masturbating has been proven to:
- Help Sleep
- Relieve Cramps
- Prevent Prostate Cancer
- Alleviate Urinary Tract Infections
- Boost Your Immunity
- And Make Sex Better
Ladies: Take your masturbation to the next level by adding a delicious toy called the womanizer. This incredible toy mimics oral sex ummm yes, it is a clitoral toy that if focused on the clitoris. The womanizer has suck and blow sensations with 12 different levels of vibrations. This beautiful toy is waterproof, rechargeable with a two-year warranty I can’t stress how orgasmic this toy is.
For centuries, adolescents have been warned that self-gratification is sinful and can lead to blindness, impotence, acne and even my favorite furry palms. When actually scientific tests have been proven that masturbation can relieve stress as well as the fact that it helps your heart. It has also been proven to help people with acceptance issues as well. It helps with self-esteem issues. It also helps the woman’s vagina because orgasms help keep your pelvic floor strong and healthy. So whether you’re in a relationship or single it is okay to touch yourself and keep it up.
And men the same applies to you! It ups your mood. Masturbation is the biggest shot of dopamine you can receive. Which is why after good sex we are most of the time satisfied. And it will help you last longer while you are having sex so guys, consider it practice for the real thing.
Guys I highly recommend you utilize a male masturbator like the Pulse III Duo by Oct Hot Octopuss , this is a perfect device to add onto your daily masturbation sessions. Fun facts about this toy: Its compact (because no one case to know) rechargeable, water proof and made out of pure medical silicon. Wait guys it also offers 5 pre-set vibrations and to make it even more fun it comes with a remote (you can give the power to pleasure you to your lover at some point)
So despite the many myths surrounding masturbation including masturbation causes blindness and insanity; masturbation can make sexual organs fall off, and masturbation causes infertility. It does, however, improve immune functioning by increasing cortisol levels, which can regulate immune functioning in small doses. It also reduces depression by increasing the number of endorphins in the bloodstream.
Talking about masturbation also has benefits. Promoting sex-positive views in our own homes and in society, including around masturbation, allows us to teach young people healthy behaviors and attitudes without stigma and shame. But it will also bring couples together by openly communicating about their sexual wants as well as their desires.
So there you have it, I would highly recommend everyone to have a solo love session with themselves at least once a day, as per your sexpert’s prescription.
