Is self-pleasuring good for the male folks but not too good for females?
What are the shocking stats, what are the health implications and/or benefits of this act?
Because the internet is a wonderful space to ask questions and also find answers, we did the hard part for you and here is everything you should know about masturbation.
It doesn’t have the Health Benefits that comes with Sex
Tobias S. Köhler (MD, MPH), an associate professor at Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in Springfield, says…
It appears that not all orgasms are created equally,”
Numerous study has shown that intercourse has a lot of gains for men – it lowers your blood pressure, beneficial for your heart and prostate health, pain, and more.
But same can’t be said of masturbation; Why you may ask?
At this time no one knows.
What is known?
Our body seems to react in different manner.
Even the content of the seminal fluid is different when you masturbate instead of having sex.
However there is a one study that proves masturbation has advantages, Harvard’s Health Professional Followup, showed that Masturbation may help lower risk of prostate cancer.
Masturbating can ease Post menopause Sex Problems in Females.
Judi Chervenak, MD, a gynecologist at Montefiore Medical Center in New York City informed us that…
A lot of women see changes during menopause but masturbation can help. The vagina can actually narrow, which can make intercourse and vaginal examinations more painful.”
But when you masturbate, especially with a water-based lubricant, it can help prevent narrowing, boost blood flow, relieve some tissue and moisture problems, and increase sexual desire.”
Masturbating has no ‘Normal” Amount
Logan Levkoff, PhD, a sexologist and sex educator says…
You can get hung up on whether you masturbate too much. But it’s not about the number of times you masturbate in a week or day that really matters, It’s how it fits into your life.”
If for you, masturbating many times a day is the way but you have a healthy, satisfying life, good for you.
However, if you masturbate many times a day and you miss work or you are not having sex with your partner because of it, you should consider visiting a sex therapist.
Even then, there is nothing specific about masturbation that is the problem.
Compulsive masturbation is like any behavior that interrupts your life – whether it’s compulsively playing video games or checking your social media every other minute.
Masturbation is Good for Your Sex Life….. Almost!
Want to improve your sex game? Masturbation might just be the way, since it’s how guys learn what they like during sex.
I think women would be more satisfied sexually in their relationships if they masturbated as much as men do,”
There are exceptions though.
Some guys do get so addicted on a certain amount of pressure during masturbation or the stimulation of porn that they can’t perform with a partner.”
According to Ian Kerner, PhD, a sex therapist and author of She Comes First.
Still, Kerner says those guys are the exception. “For the vast majority of men, masturbation is a healthy thing.
“I’m usually more concerned about a guy who’s stopped masturbating – which can be a sign of anxiety or health problems – than a guy who’s doing it regularly.”
Masturbating doesn’t Suggest Something is Wrong in Your Relationship
The most negative myth about masturbation is that it’s a signal that all is not going on fine in a relationship.
Fact: Most guys masturbate. They masturbate if they are single, in a bad relationship and/or in a great relationship. It’s just something guys sometimes love to do and let it be known that it has nothing to do with their other-half.
Masturbation isn’t only about sex, For many, it’s a routine way of relieving stress, clearing your head before work, or going to sleep.”
Masturbation doesn’t have to end with an orgasm or be a quickie
Sexuality educator Yvonne K. Fulbright, PhD says…
General opinion might differ but masturbation isn’t just a “quickie” experience. In fact rushing it and putting too much focus on orgasm can make it less enjoyable”
Give yourself time to touch all parts of your body or try different positions, and don’t feel pressure to climax.”
