Sex Advice: 10 reasons why masturbation is good for you
Many people have been programmed from a young age to think that masturbation is dirty or wrong, but it is in fact the complete opposite.
Masturbation is a healthy and enjoyable sexual activity that relieves stress and helps us to become more confident with our own bodies. Not that you need any justification, but here are 10 reasons why masturbation is good for you.
1. It feels fantastic.
2. It teaches us about our own body: what turns us on, what doesn't. Masturbation helps you identify what your basic sexual needs are and how best to satisfy them. Pass this onto your partner and you have a solid basis for a sizzling sex life.
3. It releases tension and helps us sleep - a secret sleeping pill without any side effects!
4. It teaches us to separate love from sex. We're more able to distinguish sex-affairs from love-affairs because we realise having an orgasm doesn't mean we're in love.
5. If you're single, it stops you climbing the walls or sleeping with the first person you meet.
6. It's totally safe.
7. It's a great beauty treatment. Orgasm improves circulation, combats the effects of stress and makes skin glow!
8. You can concentrate purely on your own pleasure without worrying about someone else.
9. The more you masturbate, the more orgasms you'll be capable of having both with and without your partner. The more you do it, the easier they are to reach!
10. Being able to give yourself an orgasm is true sexual independence.
