Masturbation is one of those things that everyone does, so it shouldn’t surprise you that we’re talking about it, right? Wink*. The good news is, there are plenty of health benefits if you do it often…so as if you needed more reasons to practice masturbation, there are a lot! Just don’t forget the lube, wink*.
To begin with, the main reason should be obvious: relaxation. Orgasms are a great stress reliever because they help you get rid of tension. When you practice an activity that you find enjoyable, such as a work out, meeting friends, sex, etc. your body releases oxytocin, a feel-good hormone that makes you feel happy. And if you suffer from insomnia or have trouble sleeping, orgasms are great as well. The same principle about oxytocin and relaxation: a relaxed body will go to sleep easier.
As for your overall sexual activity, masturbation is a great complement to your existing sex life. First, you can discover exactly what and how you like it; for instance, what kind of movements make you go wild or what really turns you on. Once you discover those things, you can share them with your partner and they can help you and you two can do it together wink*.
Something else positive about masturbation it’s that it actually increases your pelvis muscle strength. This allows you to maintain erections for longer periods of time and it helps you last longer. Think about is as a sort of training for the big marathon; after all, you don’t expect to run 20 miles at once if you haven’t even ran 10 miles previously, right? And if you’ve suffered from premature ejaculation, masturbation also helps in those cases. You may believe it to be counter-productive, but science has proven men last longer after they have masturbated before having sex. And I think we should trust science…wink*.
On the other hand, masturbation has also proven to be great when it comes to boosting the immune system. When you ejaculate, the immunity process in your body become elevated, thus becoming resistant when it comes to fighting infections, bacteria, germs and general illness. Again, science!
And probably one of the greatest benefits about it is it can reduce cancer risk. Yes, you’ve read that right. Studies have shown that men who masturbate more are less likely to develop prostate cancer. They have linked those studies to a simple observation, over time; cancer toxins can accumulate on the urethra, testicles and bladder; so in order to flush them out, regular ejaculation works just fine. And it’s also incredibly pleasant, so let’s get to masturbating more wink*.
