Why Masturbating Is Good for You

 My First Blush Posted by My First Blush on


Masturbation is a pretty popular topic when you’re reading about sex, and for good cause: people like to do it. That’s right, we all like to learn more about the things that make us happy, and let;s face it - masturbation is definitely one of those things. And thankfully, we are finally out of the age where even discussing these things is no longer taboo, or must you do so at a hushed whisper. In fact, people are pretty open about the details of their intimate lives these days, including their favorite sex toys.

There are few things that we can do for ourselves, completely on our own, that can make us feel so good. And let’s just destroy one big myth before we go any further. Yes, people in relationships also masturbate. In fact, they may masturbate even more than single people. It happens when remembering the sexual escapades of the night before with that new bondage gear, or when thinking of your partner in the shower before you left to go to the office. Plus, couples masturbate in front of each other and even WITH each other all of the time.

In short, almost everybody is doing it. And if you aren’t one of those people, for whatever reason, then you most decidedly want to give it a go. As pop icon George Michael said, “Not everybody does it, but everybody should.” Sure… maybe he was talking about the actual act of sex as he somehow managed to still shake his hips in the tightest jeans anyone has ever seen, but we get the idea.

But are there actual, well-researched, proven reasons why masturbating can actually be good for you? You betcha’! Let’s take a look!


1. Masturbating Gets You in Touch

Hustler Vibrating PantiesNo, this isn’t just a fun play on words. The actual act of masturbating can actually put you in touch with your own body. When you dim the lights, pull out your favorite lubricant and go to town, a big part of what you’re doing is experimenting. When you’re moving your finger an inch to the left, or you’re pulling your hand closer to the tip of your penis as you go up and down your shaft, you’re finding out what feels good to you, and the way that you like things done. And when you’re using your brand-new male stroker or thumping rabbit vibrator, or you've thrown on a pair of vibrating panties, you can start to sense when you’re about to hit that big orgasm, and then milk it for all that it’s worth, while you hope the neighbors don’t hear all that moaning.

And while this is great for when you’re having a little solo time, it can also come into play when you’re in the act with your partner. If you know exactly what you like, then it makes it that much easier to let your lover know what you’d like them to do, too.


2. Masturbating Helps You Relax

Close your eyes and think back to your last orgasm. You know, last night when you popped in that butt plug and spent a good 30 minutes in your own personal heaven? How did you feel afterwards? I can bet one of the words that you might use is “relaxed.”

Even if it’s just a quickie before bed or a few minutes in the shower before you start a hectic Monday morning, you can shut out the outside world and just leave yourself open to experience the sensations that you crave. You can forget about whatever might be worrying you and “just feel.” You see, endorphins are released after an orgasm, which is what gives you that calm, happy feeling each time. Doesn’t that sound like a great reason to masturbate more often?


3. Masturbating Brings the Pleasure

And before we forget, masturbating is extremely pleasurable. As we already mentioned, no one really knows your own body quite the way that you do, so experimenting and giving in to the sensations that you are feeling is, well… incredible, to say the least. Regardless of whether you are masturbating on your own or as part of your sexual escapades for the night, you’ll find that very few things are as pleasurable.


4. Masturbating Is Beneficial to Your Health

All American Mini WhopperYep, you read this correctly. Masturbation is absolutely 100% good for your health. But how, exactly? Well, we already mentioned that masturbating can help you get in a really relaxed mood once you orgasm, so it’s pretty obvious that this can also help lower stress in your life. When this happens, it means that you can get a better night’s sleep, even lower your blood pressure, have fewer headaches and have more energy. In short, this also means that you’ll be rested and ready to meet each day, putting you into the head space to really change your lifestyle with more exercise and a better diet. So, it wouldn’t even be a stretch to say that masturbation can lead to weight loss, would it?

But on a much more serious note, research actually shows that more ejaculation could, in fact, lower the risks of developing prostate cancer. And, during pregnancy, masturbation has also been shown to be an excellent way to release sexual tension, which can be beneficial for a good number of reasons.


5. Masturbating Is the Safest Form of Sex

This may seem like a funny statement at first, but look at it from a few different angles. It’s almost unheard of to catch any type of STD when you’re masturbating, especially if you’re flying solo. The only thing that you need to watch is that any toys, such as a suction cup dildo or a cock ring, are absolutely clean, especially if used by anyone else. And if an unwanted pregnancy is a worry, then you’re pretty much free and clear on that end as well.


And if you think we might be missing one important thing on this list, it’s probably just because it’s fun to masturbate! And when you can bring so many benefits to yourself with one simple act, then why not go for it?
