I know, you’re already thinking about how the masturbation subject matter is taboo. It’s not okay to masturbate, you think. Women don’t touch themselves in real life, you believe. It’s something that only happens in porno films, right? You’re entirely off base. In fact, you’re so far off you don’t even hit the whiteboard around the target. The truth is, everyone masturbates – all men and all women. It’s perfectly natural to do so. And that’s not the only fact about self love you need to know that no one’s willing to divulge. So, here are some facts you need to know when it comes to the ‘forbidden’ topic.

Society Works Against Us

In 1994, when the Surgeon General indicated that self pleasure was a healthy and safe way to release sexual tension as opposed to penetrative sex, she was forced to resign. Back in school, you were teased about ‘jacking off’, the idea being used to push you out of the popular crowd and deride you into oblivion. That’s the problem – many of the people speaking out in these cases are hypocrites who are simply too embarrassed to admit that they touch themselves and masturbate. The truth is, there’s nothing to be ashamed of or embarrassed about if you masturbate. Why?

It’s Good for You

Instead of fighting against it, the world should welcome the idea of masturbation because it actually has a lot of health benefits that lead to a better, longer life. Masturbating

  • Leads to better, more restful sleep
  • Can relieve headaches naturally
  • Can help to ease menstrual cramps
  • Relieves tension and anxiety

How many pills and herbs and exercises do we utilize to solve these problems that are damaging to our health? Instead, we could have a nice, healthy orgasm and cure all of the above. And to top it off, this just feels good.

Learning About Yourself

It can be difficult to find all the sensation points that drive you wild with someone else. By exploring your own body, you can learn everything you need to know that can lead to better sex with a partner. Where is your g-spot? Can you squirt, and do you like to? What feels best on your clit? How hard do you like to be penetrated? You can even learn to control your orgasms – learning to hold back and edge or force the orgasm for an explosion. Doing it yourself leads to better knowledge and confidence in and of yourself.

Using Toys

Rather than the same motions over and over, sex toys allow you to explore new sensations and have different types of orgasms. While they may seem even more taboo than the idea of masturbating itself, toys really help you define the smaller details of what gets you off, and they can make a little pleasure grow to legendary proportion.

The point here is, masturbation is something we should talk about, something we should feel more comfortable with. And even if you don’t feel right talking about it, you shouldn’t avoid it because it will do you a world of good, and unless you tell them, no one will even know you do it.
