It’s a singular pleasure AND there’s nothing else like it!
1. Improves Body Image
Masturbation gets you learning and knowing your body on a deep, personal level, which leads to appreciating yourself more… And the big plus is learning what feels good to you increases your feeling sexual pleasure with others.
2. Relieves Menstrual Cramps
When you masturbate, certain hormones are released, like endorphins, dopamine and oxytocin that can help alleviate menstrual pain. Your pelvis muscles will especially thank you, as they’ll relax helping to soothe menstrual cramping.
4. Lifts Self-Esteem
Masturbation makes you feel good physically and mentally, and linked in health surveys to high self-esteem. Are you blue and feeling alone? Another study from Concordia University shows the hormone oxytocin released can also make you feel more social.
5. Reduces Stress
Similar to exercising, endorphins travel throughout your body during masturbation allowing you to “only focus on one thing, which can ease your mind and put you in a state of relaxation”, making a bad day a little (or A LOT) better.
6. Tones Pelvic Muscles
Toning the pelvic muscles through masturbation can help reduce involuntary urinal leakage, improve blood flow, and elasticity. It’s like Kegel exercising; the more you use these muscles, the better they will function.
7. Improves Happiness
The number 1 reason is that it feels great and that’s a sure way towards happiness! Also when you have less stress, a heightened body image, more positive self-esteem… you’re bound to feel happier, right?
