The Health Benefits of Masturbation
Posted: Jul 09 2015
Somewhere along the way, people came up with this crazy idea that masturbation is bad. Thank goodness we live in the modern age, where it is possible to say with one hundred percent certainty that there is not one thing harmful about masturbation. Yes, I’m willing to make that demonstrative statement. In fact, I think the world would be a better place if everyone masturbated – when appropriate, of course. Here are the reasons you and yours should masturbate whenever you get the chance!
What Masturbation Is
Touching your genitals for pleasure is the most general term for masturbation. And you’ve probably been doing it since you were a baby, while still in your mother’s womb. It won’t cause permanent blindness. It won’t make you insane. It won’t make your willy shrink up and fall off. It won’t cause you to be infertile. It’s natural. It’s normal. It’s a part of human behavior and you should embrace it!
Why You Should Do It for Yourself
When a woman becomes aroused, her vagina experiences a process called “tenting”. The cervix opens as part of the process of being aroused, and that can help to prevent cervical infections and even urinary tract infections. It also stretches the cervix along with the cervical mucus, which helps to stir everything up and flush out bad bacteria.
Masturbation can even lower your risk of type-2 diabetes, help you sleep better, release tension and increase pelvic floor strength. That last one will make you glad when you’re about 80 and your uterus and bladder are not literally falling out of your body.
For all the men out there, self-pleasure has some great benefits too. It can help lower the risk of prostate cancer by flushing out the toxins in the prostate.
For everyone, masturbation bolsters the immune system through the increase of cortisol levels. It also can reduce depression through the release of endorphins. It has a lot of the same benefits as exercise when it comes to things like this, but it is a form of exercise when you really think about it! Pump up those love muscles!
You also have to think that you are your safest sex partner. You’re not going to get yourself pregnant, and if you do then you’ll be a millionaire from all the press coverage. You also aren’t going to give yourself a sexually transmitted disease. You are going to reduce stress, reduce your blood pressure, increase your self-esteem and even reduce pain with it, though!
Do It for Your Partner
If you don’t include mutual masturbation into your bedroom antics, you may want to do it! This is when two people pleasure themselves at the same time, together. It’s a safe activity and it’s a lot of fun to watch your partner bring themselves to orgasm. It’s also a good way to learn what your partner likes. It’s also an opportunity to show your partner what you like, and how you like to be touched. And you’ll turn each other on. Can’t go wrong there!
Here at Joy Sex Toys Online, we believe in promoting a sex-positive view of sex. Sex is natural, it’s fun and as long as you’re safe and healthy, it’s a great expression of all that you are as human. There should be no disgrace and shame to what you do with yourself or your partner. So go out and masturbate today!
