Masturbation was not always such a free practice like it is today. Some decades ago, it was actually one of the taboo topics that no one wanted to admit to. People who did confess their masturbation habit, were tagged in ways that didn’t bring them honor and parents were especially concerned about their kids indulging in such a practice that they threatened them they will go blind if they do masturbate.
Luckily all this has changed and nowadays, masturbation is a hot topic and practice, which develops in the advantages of a good health and a better relationship. You might have heard that masturbation is not something that can encourage your relationship to bloom sexually but that is not the case. Let’s look at some advantages that masturbation can bring in your life and see how you can take the best out of it:
1. Better sleep
If you suffer from insomnia from time to time or even on a regular basis, a little self-love might be the cure you need for a much needed sleep. When you masturbate, your body releases chemicals such as endorphins that relax your brain, decrease tension and stress and help your body feel good enough to take a nap or a good eight hours sleep. Next time you find yourself wide awake past midnight, you might want to consider this.
2. Prevents cancer
Yes, studies have shown that masturbation can actually prevent prostate cancer. Ejaculation gets rid of toxins in your body and men who masturbate around five times a week lower their risk of prostate cancer by a third, which is quite significant! Sure, you can obtain the same outcome by having sex five times a week, but what if you are not in the possibility of doing so considering that sexual intercourse takes two people? In that case, masturbation is a great alternative, not to mention a very enjoyable one.
3. Relieves cramps
Women who masturbate regularly have less menstrual cramps. Masturbation increases the blood flow to the pelvic region which makes period pain a little more bearable and helps the body relax instead of accumulating stress during this time. So, if you are having one of those days, give yourself a little love and forget about the rest! You will feel better in no time and, you will discover new ways of sexual pleasure along the way.
4. Masturbation can improve your sex life
Yes, you read that well, done in moderation, masturbation can bring significant benefits to your relationship.
While you masturbate you discover new erogenous spots on your body and you get to know yourself better at a sexual level.After you have encountered a new way to give yourself some pleasure, you can share it with your partner and have them try it which will bring both of you to a new level of sexual relationship and empower the bound you share.
5. Masturbate along with your partner to achieve intense orgasms
Masturbation doesn’t need to be a lonely activity. Lose your clothes, get your partner closer to you and start touching yourself while they are watching you and observing your reactions. Most likely, they will join in and do the same. You can both have this sexual experience together and reach orgasms without even having physical intercourse and in some cases, orgasms reached through masturbation can be even more intense than those reached through sex.
During such an experience, both you and your partner might want to use toys on yourselves or on each other’s body to make the experience even hotter. Dildos, vibrators, orgasm belts, are great options for women to increase the pleasure and get those moans out even louder. The sexual toys that can be used are not meant exclusively for women though, men have a wide range of vibrators and anal plugs to choose from and use during a self-love session.
