Why is Masturbation Important?

There’s no need to feel guilty about masturbation, if anything you should be proud because you’re taking care of yourself! There are so many benefits to masturbating that you probably don’t know about...yet!


1. Better partner play

How can you expect someone to know where to touch you if you don’t even know? Knowing what gets you off makes it easier for you to communicate with your partner. Your partner isn’t a mind reader, so take notes on what you like and what you don’t like.


2. You can count it as a workout

Sex burns a good number of calories, so depending on how you get to bumping and grinding on your own... you could burn a few calories!


3. Masturbation can help improve your skin

Have you ever heard of a post-orgasm glow? Fun fact: having an orgasm increases your estrogen levels which helps with healthier looking hair and skin!


4. Masturbation can improve sleep

Having an orgasm before you go to bed can help improve your sleep. When you have an orgasm, your brain releases oxytocin and serotonin, which is known to improve sleep!masturbating


5. Masturbating can also give you an energy boost

Not everyone gets tired after they have an orgasm, some people start their day off with a nice solo session and feel energized and ready to start their day...with a cup of coffee of course.


6. Masturbation may increase your libido

Masturbating can make you want more sex. The more often a person has sex, the more likely they are to crave it. It’s human nature to do something that makes us feel good. When we climax, our brain releases oxytocin, dopamine, and serotonin...so, who wouldn't crave an orgasm? If you're struggling with your libido, try masturbating!


7. Masturbating helps relieve period cramps

When you get your period, your uterus is shedding the endometrial lining, and sometimes your uterus contracts in order to help speed up the process. Unfortunately, this causes cramps, but the good news is because of all the happy chemicals that our brain releases during orgasm, this helps relieve the pain of period cramps.
