Going Solo: The 15 Sexy Benefits of Masturbation

masturbation benefits

We’re breaking masturbation’s bad rep by talking about its benefits. And yes, they don’t just feel great; they’re excellent for your health, too.

So spank your monkey or flip your flossy—it’s so good for you. And don’t worry, you won’t go blind.

Thanks to science, we now know that masturbation is actually good for our health. The only problem now is that many men and women are still embarrassed—not to mention feel guilty—by the mere thought of masturbation.

So allow us to brush off the dust from your old-fashioned beliefs and let science do the talking.

The benefits of masturbation

Ladies and gentlemen, masturbation is not just a pleasurable way to “take care” of yourself. There are also huge health benefits to masturbating.

So here are some of the reasons to give yourself some self-love, not just once in a while, but regularly.

#1 Feel-good. Whatever feels good lifts up your mood and makes you happier. Pleasure feels good and masturbation pleases you, especially when you reach your climax. So if you’re feeling down, go ahead and masturbate. As we all know, orgasms release dopamine and oxytocin, which can improve your mood and give you a natural high. So instead of doing drugs, why not give yourself your own orgasms?

#2 Confidence boost. If you have one best friend whom you should take care of, it’s your own body. After all, it’s the only thing that’s going to be with you for the rest of your life. So why not treat your body to some loving, right? After all, masturbation is known to make you feel good about your body, as it allows you to get to know yourself in a physical sense, especially your pleasure points.

#3 Sexuality enhancer. As masturbation allows you to explore your body and makes you confident about what turns you on and what pleases you, it helps improve your sexuality. Knowing what feels good and where allows you to be in charge of your body, even when you are with a partner. This is because you know what feels good and you can be more vocal about this with your partner.

#4 Who says you need a partner? Who says you need to be having sex with someone to make you feel sexual? Masturbating regularly helps your brain get the “sexercise” it needs so you can easily feel aroused. The more sex you think about, the more sex you’ll have, and you’ll want sex even more. And all this can happen while you’re feeding the beaver or spanking your monkey. [Read: 14 little but effective ways to feel sexy and desirable all the time]

#5 Stress reliever. Since masturbating makes you feel good, it is a great way to unwind and relieve stress. Again, it releases endorphins, which also help to calm you down and lift up your mood. So if you’re having a rough day at work, end it with a bath, some sensual music, and go ahead and buff the banana.

#6 Improved sex life. As you become more in-tune with your body and your pleasure points, you can get more out of your sex life. This, in turn, gives your partner satisfaction, as they can see you becoming pleased and satisfied. Also, if you are confident enough to talk to your partner about what you like, you can both open more doors to another world of bedroom pleasures.

#7 Lullaby, anyone? There’s a reason you feel sleepy after a wild and satisfying romp with your partner. Having toe-curling orgasms can relieve your body from tension and leave you exhausted physically, emotionally, and mentally. This can then prime you well for sleep. You will feel relaxed and tired *in a good way*. So if ever you have insomnia, try masturbating before reaching for those sleeping pills.

#8 Release your tension. Sexual tension, that is. Ever notice when some people become extra cranky? It’s probably because they aren’t getting any. So if you don’t want to be like them, a great way to stay in a positive mood is to masturbate. You can satisfy your libido even without the need of a partner—and as an added bonus, you’ll be in a much cheerier mood than before.

#9 Orgasm all you want. One, two, three… or more. It’s all up to you. While you can orgasm once or twice before your partner gets tired or “finishes,” you don’t have to worry about that when you go solo. You can take the afternoon off and have yourself a solo sensual spree. Especially if you’re a woman, you can keep going, and going, and going… [Read: 10 female masturbation tips for guaranteed orgasmic bliss]

#10 Premature ejaculation? No problem. For men, masturbation can also greatly help you improve your sex life. Jacking off can help you manage premature ejaculation. What you can do is to crank your shank around two hours before having sex. This allows you to perform longer before another ejaculation comes. Voila! You’re an instant sex machine.

#11 Prostate problems begone. Again, for men, masturbation helps to lower the risk of prostate cancer. Those who ejaculate more than five times a week are less likely to develop prostate cancer. So what do you do when you don’t have a partner who’s in on it five times a week? You masturbate. By burping the worm, you are flushing out the disease-causing toxins in your genital tract, therefore clearing the path and keeping you spic and span down there.

#12 What’s with the nose? Ever notice that your clogged nose gets better after sex and masturbation? This is because being aroused and even having orgasms reduce the swelling of the vessels in your nasal passages. It is even said that sex and even masturbation alone can improve your condition if you have a common cold, hay fever, allergic rhinitis, or other ailments.

#13 Fight off germs. With your fingers or your palms. This is because masturbation—actually, it’s ejaculation—increases cortisol, a known stress hormone that is also responsible for helping you regulate and maintain immunity. Even scientists from the Fortis Escorts Institute in New Delhi say that masturbation can produce the right environment for strengthening the immune system naturally.

#14 No STD, no pregnancy. No sex, no problem. For both men and women, masturbation is a healthy and safe way to get off without having a partner, therefore lessening the risk of contracting an STD from a partner or getting pregnant. It is a great way to be sexually satisfied without having vaginal penetration. [Read: Female masturbation – 17 facts about the naughty secret]

#15 No downsides whatsoever. Masturbation, when done regularly *note: not excessively, which may be a sign of sexual addiction, mind you* and in a private place, has no negative effects. You’re not going to get sick, you won’t grow hair on your palms, and you won’t go blind. There’s really nothing wrong with masturbating. And best of all—it’s free! [Read: 25 hilarious myths about sex most of us used to believe]

Masturbation has many benefits and no downsides. From making you feel good to helping you ward off diseases, there’s really nothing wrong with juicing out and pounding your flounder. All you just need to do is find a cozy, comfy place with the utmost privacy, set the mood with sexy ambience, maybe use some toys, and just have a go at it!

    Has any other woman had enough of these stories trying to make us be like men?Guys masturbate because it feels good and they can have an orgasm but pushing this same thing on women makes no sense at all because what would we get out of it?Girls don’t develop a sexual drive like boys do when they hit puberty,a woman has no sex drive so it’s pointless to tell this stuff about masturbation to us.Are women supposed to blow their load like men do?How?Tell me how are we supposed to have an orgasm when we don’t have the same sexual organs as a man!Their penis gets stimulated and it feels good but a woman’s vagina is not like that.Women either feel nothing at all or it is pain.It’s because men evolved to procreate but women did not.That is why we never have sexual arousal,sexual desire or have an orgasm.It’s a product of evolution.To me it shows that us women are more evolved than men.They are caveman like with their lust but we never think about sex so we have higher IQ’s.You men can have your masturbation but i and every other woman are happy and proud to never have been born a male.Rather have high IQ than having desire for sex.

    Went to visit my older sister for vacation. I had an extremely high sex drive at the time, I masturbated probably twice a day at that time. About five days into the vacation I was crawling up a fucking wall since I left my vibrator at home and couldn’t get myself off alone, so when we went to walmart I grabbed a crest spinbrush while she waited in the car. Except she got bored, so she came and found me at the register and I had to explain why I was buying an electric toothbrush on a two week vacation when she knew I already had a toothbrush. Later that night I had gone to bed and was reading dirty stories while waiting for her to go to bed. She finally did, and I immediately switched my brush on. Unfortunately right as I did, my sister left her room again, and while she walked by my room she started laughing.

    I don’t know if this is uncommon, but I masturbate pretty much every day before I go to sleep. But I’ve gotten it down where it takes literally seconds for me to orgasm. I’ll usually get myself to cum three or four times, whatever it takes till i feel really satisfied, like I feel like I couldn’t cum again, and then that’ll be it. Depending on the day and everything the whole thing takes maybe 5 or 10 minutes at most. I don’t see masturbation as something that’s really all that special or enjoyable, I mean I enjoy it but I’m not gonna let it take up a whole bunch of time. I guess its just like a really quick release of whatever sexual energy I have built up throughout the day. If I’m going a long long time without having sex I’d probably do it for longer (I did when I was younger) but now its just not a big deal

    Equating male masturbation and female musturbation is a nonsense. Some women can repeat orgasms, the more the better. A man’s first ejaculation (with a woman or without), is a great relieve of the accumulated MENTAL stress (on top of that of the semen in the prostate gland). The following ejaculations are usually done just to impress the woman. Since an ejaculation makes a man exhausted for some time, and there is no accumulation of any kind of stress for a while, then there is something wrong if a man does multiple masturbations. How much of masturbation is too much? For a woman, probably “too much” does not exist. For a man the criterion is: If, say, two hours after jerking off you feel happy, relaxed and mentally ready for whatever kind of activities, that ejaculation was good for you. If for many hours you feel down and exhausted, then take a brake from jerking. Very simple: do that only when you feel the need to unload. Do not force your winnie to do things he does not feel like doing, since he knows the best. If he wants to sleep, don’t wake him up. Trust him! By the way, the male’s exhaustion following ejaculation has nothing to do with the amount of the proteins or calories lost with the semen. It is all about hormones and some misterious energy transfer. That is real. You can read “The Teachings of the White Tigress”; Don’t dismiss that, it is real.
