• Why You Should Be Masturbating Right Now

    WhyYouShouldBeMasturbatingRightNow

    If someone asked you why you masturbate it might seem like an odd question - surely it’s obvious? It feels great, relieves sexual frustration, and some of us even do it just to kill time!

    But what if we told you there are a whole slew of other benefits being swept under the rug? Other than being a procrastinator's best friend, dabbling in a little ménage à moi can affect more areas of your life than you might realise.

    With positive impacts on your health, mood, sex life, and more, masturbation has been proven time and again to be of our healthier habits as a species, whatever your gender.

    So to find out more about exactly why a fap a day can keep the doctor away, just keep reading.

    Besides, who doesn’t love more reasons to treat themselves?

    It Keeps You Physically Healthy

    It might sound far-fetched, but you’d be surprised just how much good a bit of quality masturbation time can do for you!

    Studies have found that men who ejaculate more than 4 times a week are a third less likely to contract prostate cancer, and, in women, regular orgasms can help prevent cervical infections and UTIs.

    It's Great For Your Mood

    It should come as no surprise that masturbation makes you feel good, but the impact is longer-lasting than just the moment of orgasm.

    The dopamine released in both male and female brains has been found to have a lessening effect on symptoms associated with depression, and with regular exposure can have a general positive effect on your emotional wellbeing.

    So you really can fap yourself happy (in a way, that is).

    It Makes For Better Sex

    Far too many people associate masturbation with a lack of sex, but this is absolutely not the case.

    Quite to the contrary, it's well-established that masturbation can, for men and women both, lead to better, more satisfying sex.

    In men, regular masturbation can be used to train for longer-lasting sex, and for everyone, it leads to a better understanding of the unique nature of your body - what works and doesn't work for you, making your experiences with a partner all the sweeter.

    It Works Wonders for Your Mental Health

    Two of the most common negative impacts on a person's mental health are stress and lack of sleep. When we all have such busy lives, it's only too easy to go far too long, doing far too much, without realising it.

    First up - sleep. The earlier-mentioned endorphins released during orgasm have wonderful relaxing effects, and with the added bonus of lowering blood pressure, masturbation might be just what you need to top off a restful night in.

    Many people also find a correlation between going a while without orgasm and stress levels, so when the weight of the world is on your shoulders, try taking matters into your own hands, so to speak.

    It's Safer Than Sex

    It might be obvious, but it's pretty hard to get pregnant (or get someone else pregnant) if you're playing on single player.

    Similarly, if you've only your own body to worry about, you don't have to worry about STDs and other nasty possibilities coming from sex with a partner. Now, we call that a winner.

    Not only is masturbation safer than sex, it has just as many benefits, and can be just as satisfying (if not more so for many people). Whatever your reason, or even lack thereof, your body is yours to enjoy and you've no reason not to do so.

    so, next time you're basking in the glow of a solo job well done, remember this list and glow even brighter.
