Reasons to masturbate – TONIGHT!
1. Feels Fucking Awesome
The title pretty much sums it up, doesn’t it?
2. Zaps Stress and Anxiety
Meet Oxytocin, Dopamine, and Endorphins, the “happy hormones” who have a real hard on for cortisol the “stress hormone”. Magically, masturbating increases your bodies level of “happy hormones” while reducing levels of the “stress hormone”, ultimately leaving you on cloud nine.
3. Reduce Pain
Over the counter is old news, under the blanket is the new thing. Pain relief may not be the first thing that pops to mind when you look at your own hand, but research suggests perhaps it should be. During an orgasm a specific region of the brain is stimulated causing a pain management response that can treat mild migraines and provide temporary relief from pain. This also helps to explain why our pain tolerance is higher during masturbation and sex, bringing pleasure through spanking and other BDSM related kinks, “no pain, no pleasure”.
4. Raises Self-Esteem and Body Image
Scientific proof isn’t needed to confirm that masturbating makes us feel good, both mentally and physically. The better we feel, the higher our self-esteem and more positively we feel about our bodies. As well as being one of our core values, self-love is a major driver in someone’s sexual development and becoming comfortable in the skin they’re in, as there is no one quite like you!
5. More Active & Better Sex Life
“Push me, and then just touch me, till I can get my satisfaction.” All good in theory but let us take a step back. How many of us actually know what we want, let alone have the confidence to demand orders like this? The answer, “Not many, if any”. Masturbating allows us to discover and understand exactly what we want and need to give us that toe curling orgasm, valuable information that can be used to assertively prompt another into pushing your buttons the right way, or just making it more enjoyable for yourself.
6. Risk Free
As beautiful as oral, sex and human interaction is, unfortunately they all come with a bunch of risks such as unplanned pregnancy and STDs. Fortunately, Mrs Palmer and her five daughters have a perfect track record with a 0% chance of pregnancy or contraction of STDs. If you’re one of those people who feels as though sex induces more anxiety than pleasure don’t forget that, “Solo play keeps the doctor away!”. If anyone tries to tell you that you will lose your vison, put on weight or experience other unexplained side effects from flicking your bean or slapping your salami they’re probably strung up cause they haven’t been 😉.
