16 Aug PRACTICE SELF LOVE
Ever since we first reached down there and discovered it, we’ve had a hard time leaving it alone. Masturbating feels good and relieves tension, and with sex on the brain 24/7, a good session can be a way to re-center and find focus. Some of us might have guilt about when or how often to do it, but regular masturbation is one of the healthiest things you can do sexually. Right handed, left handed, switch it up and change the feeling. Ever tried the Stranger? It’s your body – why not enjoy it?
One hand. Five fingers. Five reasons why you should love a good tug (like you really need any more reasons).
1. Masturbation helps keep your body healthy
Oh, having trouble dosing off at night? Give yourself a tug and you’ll likely sleep like a baby afterwards. Orgasm has been found to improve sleep, reduce stress, relieve pain from headaches and other sources, and more. It also works wonders for your complexion. And the safest, easiest form of sex is getting laid with yourself.
2. Masturbating can help you last longer during intercourse
You might want to think about adding longer masturbation sessions to your “me time.” For those of us that don’t make it to the 7th inning stretch, regular masturbation can help you go longer during sex. Masturbating can help you find your edge, right before that point of no return where you are just about to let go. By becoming more aware of that sensation you can prolong your sessions by knowing when to slow it down. This knowledge can be transferred to when you’re having sex with a lover.
3. Masturbation helps you learn what you like
Don’t settle for self-quickies every time. Use the opportunity to find out what types of stimulation you like, and engage your other hand in touching the rest of your body while you’re at it! It’s hot to be able to show your partner what you like, which brings me to my next point.
4. Masturbation doesn’t have to be a solo act
You can get your girl involved and show her what feels best for your equipment. Research has shown that women are more likely to be visually turned on by bodies in motion. Not only is showing off a great way to tease and please, an eager partner might learn a few new tricks from you.
5. It makes you happy
Relax, enjoy, and finish with a smile. Being happy has tremendous benefits for your mental, physical, and relational health. Put yourself at the top of your to-do list!
Too much of a good thing? If masturbation is interfering with your relationship, work or other daily schedules, then you might be doing it a bit too much. Otherwise, have fun with yourself.
