Why masturbation is good for you (and how to do it better)

Sex life is crucial: whether it is the one you have with your partner, or with yourself. Yes, the truth is, the masturbation is as crucial as having a partner and a well-developed sex life. A research conducted by the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender and Reproduction, shows that more than half of woman ages 18-49 admit they’re masturbating, self-love, getting hands on, DIY sex- or whatever it is called.

“The key to having great sex life is knowing your body, and masturbating is one way to discover what turns you on”, says Jane Greer, Ph.D.

Here are some of the main reasons why masturbation is good for you:

Masturbation boosts your sex life. Pleasuring yourself should not be considered as an action for the lonely ones. Quite the contrary, many women engage in solo sex just to complement their already hot sex lives. The more often the woman is sexually aroused, the more likely she is to want more sex with a partner, and also to be more orgasmic when she does. Let’s call it a “bedroom maintenance”.

It comes with health perks. It is generally known that orgasms are stress-relievers and mood-boosters. They can also curb headaches, thanks to a flurry of neurotransmitters such as endorphins and he hormone estrogen that are released post-orgasm. And it has to be mentioned that for some women, the only way to achieve an orgasm is by masturbating. So do yourself a favor.

Self-pleasuring can help you fall asleep faster. Masturbation can be really helpful for falling asleep. There are a lot of cases when a person passed out right after masturbation. This is happening because of a chemical prolactin which is released after orgasm and hs been linked to sleep. In fact, 32 % of women sneak in a solo sex session when they’re tossing and turning so they can fall back to sleep.

It can improve the health of your hair. The blood flow is a major determinate for nourishing your hair. More blood flow via a self-love-induced orgasm means more blood flow into each hair follicle, and makes your heir healthier and more beautiful.
