There’s no shame in admitting that someone masturbates. In fact, we’re living in modern times, and if there’s any taboo around it, it should be deconstructed.


In research conducted by Glamour with its readers, 91% of them admitted partaking in the art of masturbation. 36% of them said to practice it two to five times a week and 67% said to do it using a sex toy.

Masturbation is a crucial part of healthier mental and physical wellbeing and there’s no need to be ashamed of that. Let’s explore the benefits of this act of self-love?

Masturbation Helps To Alleviate Pain


Orgasms release dopamine, oxytocin, and serotonin, which are the feel-good hormones in our bodies. If you have a headache or muscle pain because of overtraining or feeling stressed out or anxious, vagina stimulation increases your pain tolerance by 40%.

It Alleviates Stress-like Symptoms


Sexual pleasure connects us with the present moment and tunes with the pleasurable moments were experiencing — whether that be during sex with a partner or doing solo pleasure. As previously mentioned, orgasms release neurotransmitters responsible for satisfaction and wellbeing.

It May Improves Your Sleep


The neurotransmitters released during orgasms relax the body, helping you to fall asleep faster. Also, norepinephrine and serotonin help stay asleep, promoting deep and restful night’s sleep. A 2019 study said that people who have an orgasm before going to sleep improved their sleep quality.

It May Increases The Libido


It’s true — the more sex one has, the more they’ll crave for it. And masturbating might increase your sex appetite. In fact, the art of solo pleasure has been used in treatments for those struggling with low sex drive and have difficulties getting turned on.

It Helps You To Get To Know Your Body Better

The more you explore and get in touch with the parts of your body that give you the most pleasure, the more you’ll get to know what turns you on. Don’t be afraid to touch, feel, and explore all parts of your body and connect with all sensations that come.
