A couple of generations ago, people were stigmatized for masturbating. This is because open adventures with sexuality were viewed as something dirty and morally wrong.

The topic of masturbation is still a fiery ice storm that rages on and on to this day. Some people still believe it is a taboo while others support it wholeheartedly.

However, scientific and psychological studies have proven that masturbation is very healthy and is a normal thing. The act of self-pleasuring can be a very beneficial thing if done right and moderately.

Masturbation has some health benefits too. For example, in men, masturbation reduces the risk of developing prostate cancer. The cancer is caused by a buildup of toxins in the urogenital tract. These toxins can be flushed out through ejaculation, reducing the risk of prostate cancer by a third. In women, masturbation can reduce menstrual cramps and help you go through your periods faster and in less pain as it causes blood to flow to the cervix. It can also reduce the risk of urinary tract infections. Excitement during masturbation can flush out the cervix, removing different types of harmful toxins from the body.

A person’s libido is affected by various factors such as age, activities, diet and health among many others. Recent studies by sex experts have shown that masturbation can increase your sex drive.

The act of masturbation makes an individual more aware of their body. They get to know where they feel most pleasure when touched and in what way. This improves your sex life because you are able to guide your partner to boost your sexual pleasure. It also makes you actively aware of the amount of pressure, speeds, specific motions and rhythms that mix up to make your climax something to remember.

The act of masturbation with a partner also increases intimacy in the relationship. It can be a great turn onto watch your partner play with himself or herself. It also builds confidence in the relationship and helps get over the invisible sexual barrier that many couples have. This barrier is as a result of trying to paint a perfect picture to our partners that makes us afraid of doing certain things.

It also helps level the playing field for most couples. For the partner with a higher sex drive, self-pleasuring can help lower the level of sexual intensity they experience and this can help give their partner a break. One can also masturbate to the fantasy of what would be coming later, and this greatly improves their libido and anticipation for sex with their partner.

Masturbation is something that has been greatly misunderstood for a long time.  In reality, the benefits of moderate masturbation greatly outweigh the demerits. Understanding masturbation can be the key to greatly improving your sex life and can boost your overall health. It also has other benefits like stress relief. Masturbation can also help you get to sleep through the release of sex hormones, which have the effect of calming the nerves and releasing pent-up tension in the body.
