Masturbating For Your Health

In case you hadn't heard, it's totally normal and healthy to masturbate—and yet, many women shy away from solo sessions. With Masturbation Month still in full swing, let’s chat about how Masturbating can improve your health and your life.

If you're not doing it, you're missing out on more than just orgasms on demand. Here's why you should take matters into your own hands—literally:

It Can Improve Your Sex Life

Just 57% of women have orgasms most or every time they have sex with a partner, according to a survey of 2,300 women aged 18 to 40 conducted by Cosmopolitan magazine. Before you can consistently get off with another person, you need to know what works for you. Run your hands down your body, take time for yourself, and see what makes you feel good. By figuring out what gets you going, you’ll not only be able to get some solo pleasure, but also help your partner understand what makes you tick.

It May Reduce Stress And Help You Sleep

Instead of counting sheep, try counting orgasms. When you orgasm, your body releases prolactin, a relaxation hormone, and serotonin, a happiness hormone. While it hasn't been thoroughly studied, many women have found masturbating helps them relieve tension and sleep.

For the best effect, create a calm, nurturing environment before you get busy. Just turn off your phone, go into your room for 10 minutes, start to breathe and touch your body. By doing this, you’re taking care of yourself, experiencing pleasure, and getting in touch with your body—all of which give you a sense of well-being."

It Can Relieve Period Cramps

Having sex on your period might be a little messy, but solo sessions are easy—plus, they pack some natural pain-relieving benefits. When you have an orgasm, the uterus contracts, which causes the blood to come out faster and allow you to be less crampy.

For some women, however, orgasms might intensify the tension. It’s just a matter of testing it out the technique to see if it works for you.

It Can Intensify Your Orgasms

Masturbating does expand your orgasmic potential. So for women who struggle to have orgasms with or without their partner, it teaches you how to have an orgasm and increases your own sexual awareness.

The key is taking time to get to know your body and what really turns you on. And while many women may try it out to no avail, it’s important not to give up on finding your bliss. The reality is it could take months to figure out how to have a G-spot orgasm, a clitoral orgasm, or even a blended orgasm.

It Might Make You More Confident

When you feel in control of your body and sexuality, it gives you more self-esteem in the bedroom. And that confidence doesn’t just stay between the sheets—it can actually carry over into all aspects of your life. A lot of women aren’t satisfied with the way their bodies look, but when we’re in control and connected to our bodies through masturbating, we learn a lot about who we are. That can cultivate more positive feelings around our bodies and help us feel more confident inside and out. It’s simple really: you'll come, you'll see, you'll conquer.

It Feels Really Good

At the end of the day, the primary benefit to masturbation is simple: It feels good. But since the topic is still generally kept on the hush, many women don't know how to do it.

If you're still feeling a little lost when it comes to what to do down there, just remember there's no universal technique. So to get started, experiment with different types of touch. Don't just go straight for the clitoris. Start slow and and gently explore surrounding areas like the labia with a light, two-finger touch. Plus, applying a couple drops of lube are a great option to get things going. All it takes is a bit of body exploration, and you'll be a master of masturbation in no time.
