Hey horny dudes and dudettes, what’s happening? Are we all good, ready for this week’s post? Okay, let’s get into it.
So, if you’ve not already deduced it from the topic, we’re talking about masturbation today. What is it? Is it good or dangerous to self? Let’s find out.
According to WebMD, “Masturbation is the self-stimulation of the genitals to achieve sexual arousal and pleasure, usually to the point of orgasm (sexual climax). It is commonly done by touching, stroking, or massaging the penis or clitoris until an orgasm is achieved.”
Masturbating basically means you have sex with your self, by yourself or sometimes with a partner. It is a totally healthy human behaviour and poses no threat to the health. Growing up, as toddlers, we all masturbated. Unconsciously.
Due to the shame and guilt around it, most people stopped. Out of curiosity, some persisted.
In my opinion, it is important to practice the art of self pleasuring. It’s hard to know what to tell someone to do to you without knowing it yourself, and for sex to be pleasurable knowledge is important. Statistically, more males than females masturbate and most females practice guilty masturbation.
That means, you do it because you can’t help it, and at the end feel completely disgusted by yourself for no reason other than misplaced guilt, from society and religion. This kind of experience can lead to compulsive masturbation which isn’t healthy or pleasurable.
Touching yourself should be something you do because you want to, and because you understand that your body needs it. It is figuring out the parts of your body that make you sing, and some parts that no one but you will be able to get to. If you experience guilt from masturbation, it’s recommended you talk to someone about it
Granted, there are the mental blocks created by religious beliefs which put it out as a sin and it’s totally fine to abide by your faith. But if you’re already having sex, which is also a sin, masturbating can’t be that bad, especially when it makes you feel so good.
Also, if you’ve not started having sex, masturbating is a great way to quell the growing needs in you and to figure out your body before your sexual partners.
It is also great to note that masturbation helps to; relieve built-up stress, sleep better, boost your mood, feel pleasure, relieve menstrual cramps, have better sex, and most importantly it does wonders for your self esteem and improves self love.
Masturbating doesn’t cause a decline in sexual sensitivity or reduced interest in sex. In fact, two 2009 studies found that vibrator use among women and men has been linked to an increase in desire, arousal, and overall sexual function. Women also reported an increase in lubrication, while men reported better erectile function, according to the studies.
Masturbation doesn’t have any harmful side effects. However, some people may feel guilty about masturbating or have issues with chronic masturbation which could lead them to,
- Skip chores or daily activities
- Miss work or school
- Cancel plans with friends or family
- Miss important social events
Some ways to combat addiction or chronic masturbation are;
- Going for a run
- Writing in a journals
- Spending time with friends
- Going for a walk, etc…
Bottom line, masturbation is healthy and totally recommended. So, dim those lights, and get to pleasuring yourself.
Till next week, for another sexy post. Remember to stay clear of crowds, stay healthy and please stay safe.
