Female masturbation has been historically frowned upon and there are still taboos surrounding it, which can make even the most enthusiastic practitioner think of their pleasure in a very singular way.

However, masturbation is good for you! It helps you feel relaxed physically and mentally, it can lead to a better night’s sleep, it helps increase body confidence and awareness and a lot more pretty amazing health benefits.


Amazing Masturbation Health Benefits


1. Sexploration


In the privacy of your own home, the setting, duration, props and moves are entirely at your discretion, making this a perfect time to see what turns you on. Employing some of those hushed fantasies and experimenting with new ideas can stir up some exciting discoveries about your sexuality.

Taking the time to touch and see what buttons you really like pressed means improved confidence in your pleasure, with or without your partner.

2. Way Better Than A Stress Ball


Tuning out daily worries and focusing on thoughts that simply make you feel hot is going to reduce stress. With the release of endorphins, dopamine, and oxytocin during orgasm and the increased blood flow that happens during masturbation, this means not only a reduction in blood pressure but also a diffusion of those feel-good chemicals around the body. Stress-management never felt so good.

3. Abating Auntie Flo…


If it’s Red Week, engaging in some *me* time can help alleviate cramps and might actually shorten your period. When we orgasm, muscle spasms and contractions can expel uterine tissue and blood faster than normal, relieving cramps, bloating and ultimately helping our period to pass more quickly.

The hormones released in orgasm (oxytocin and dopamine) also help to assuage cramps, feelings of sadness and depression and other factors associated with PMS. Sold!

4. ZZZZzzzzZZZZZZzzz


The release of dopamine during masturbation creates a powerful sense of well-being in one’s body and if done before bed can help you drift off to the land of nod for a sound night’s sleep. As you may well know, orgasms send tingly sensations around the body so you’re going to enjoy wrapping yourself around those blankets more than usual.


5. Use It Or Lose It Sister…


…Kind of. Masturbation keeps our sex organs healthy, as stimulation increases blood flow around the area, improving sensitivity, tone and general health of their tissues. This is particularly important for women around or in menopause since lower levels of estrogen and reduced blood flow to these areas can cause narrowing or shortening of the vagina which means sex and gynecological exams can be uncomfortable.

Stimulation is key to keeping any part of the body healthy and happy, so there you have it, the perfect excuse!

6. Safe (Solo) Sex


Sex can be a bit of a minefield, from unwanted pregnancies, STDs and body image hang-ups there are many dangers, precautions and anxieties we preoccupy ourselves with. Flying solo is totally safe and means you can get as freaky as you possibly want and even throw some toys into the mix for enhanced feels.

7. Hold On A Second…


Touching yourself means you are quite literally, more in touch with what is going on in your body. Exploring your intimate area means you’re more likely to detect any problems and be more in tune with what feels normal and what doesn’t.

In fact, a recent study found that women who use vibrators are more likely to be proactive about caring for their sexual health. So if you spot anything unusual you can take the necessary precautions and get checked out quickly.

8. Protect Against Infections


When we orgasm, the cervix opens slightly in a process called ‘tenting’, this can expel bad bacteria associated with infections from the uterus along with other fluids, in the process actually lubricating the vagina. Yes, ladies, masturbation is the gift that keeps on giving.

9. Up Your Body Image


Engaging in some “ménage à moi” means doing what feels good for you and no one else – which can be pretty empowering. Getting pleasure out of your body and witnessing all the ways it can make you feel amazing is a sure-fire way to make you love the skin you’re in. Transfer that to a ménage à +1 scenario and you’re going to feel way more comfortable with your body, which is always super sexy.

So whether it’s for your self-esteem, sense of well-being or genuine bodily health, lie back girls… and get flickin’! Ahem…
