May has been declared as “Masturbation Month”, however we would like to suggest 8 reasons why every month should be masturbation month. Imagine not only is it satisfying, it is good for your health! So enjoy…
- Women are more likely to reach orgasm when having sex.
Women who masturbate are less likely to have problems reaching orgasm during sex. Of those who struggle to reach the big O, 91% of them don’t masturbate. And we don’t need to tell you why reaching orgasm is good for you.
- Improves your circulation
Getting all hot and bothered gets the blood pumping and keeps your arteries and tissues functioning well. This is especially important if you don’t have a regular partner.
- Relieves stress
Going solo helps lower blood pressure and kick start your endorphins which helps ease stress and increase relaxation.
- Helps you sleep
For most of us, the best time for some one-on-one time is just before bed, and not only is it convenient, it’s also helpful. The stress relieving hormones get you into a relaxed state ready for sleep, which helps you wind down at the end of the day.
- Helps with UTIS
According to scientist, masturbation can help prevent cervical infections and urinary tract infections through the process of ‘tenting’ which is the opening of the cervix that occurs as part of the arousal process.
Tenting, stretches the cervix, and thus the cervical mucous. This enables fluid circulation, allowing cervical fluids full of bacteria to be flushed out.’
- Boosts your immune system
Masturbating encourages your body to release cortisol which in small doses can help maintain your immune system.
Cortisol is the ‘stress hormone’ so while we don’t want a lot of it rushing around our body, it will promote the production of anti-bodies and keep you ready to ward off attack.
- Helps you have better sex
One of the most important things about good sex is knowing what you like. If you don’t know, how will he? Getting to know yourself, down there, is the best way to really learn what makes you tick… and moan.
- Relieves cramps during your period
Cramps during your period are caused by muscle tension so rather than popping an ibuprofen, just get up close and personal with yourself. The increased blood flow to the muscles in your pelvic floor helps alleviate tension and pain.
So, as you can see ladies, getting down with yourself is part of a healthy, normal sex life. Self-pleasure is not only a turn on for you, but a turn on for your couple too!
