Tuesday Masturbation

Did you know that good ol' DIY is good for you? 

And, no, I'm not talking about erecting flat-pack shelves either.  We're talking the Big M and the Big O. 

Masturbation to Orgasm.

"Masturbation is sex with someone you love", said Woody Allen, but many women feel ashamed to masturbate. Not only is it ok to masturbate, there are also great health benefits.....

If you’re like most women, you’ve been brought up to think of the idea of masturbation as something dirty, shameful or embarrassing.

While masturbation is considered perfectly acceptable for men, it’s always been something of a taboo subject for women. Not only is it not wrong for women, it can actually have far reaching side effects that can be good for your health. 

Sexual climax is the primary reason for masturbation

Of course, the primary reason for masturbation is to bring yourself to sexual climax. This can be an important tool in and of itself, as it is the easiest and best way for a woman to become comfortable with her own body. The more you are aware of your own physical needs, the better you’ll be able to communicate them to your partner, which can lead to a better sexual experience for both of you.

...but masturbation has other benefits too

Aside from improving your ability reach orgasm, however, masturbation can actually have other benefits. 

Women tend to be more withdrawn in regards to sexual response than men and masturbation is the easiest way to overcome this. There is no reason why you shouldn’t be able to enjoy yourself and there should be no reason to hesitate about it.

Masturbation is a great stress reliever

Our daily lives can cause us to be under a great deal of stress and that stress can lead to a variety of health problems. Believe it or not, masturbation is one of the easiest, safest and most pleasurable ways to relieve that stress.

It can even help to improve your mood as the hormones released during orgasm can cause intense feelings of happiness and contentment.

Masturbation can help PMS and migraine sufferers

That same release of hormones can also help to ease certain physical discomfort, including the cramping and irritability of PMS and even, in some cases, the symptoms of migraine headaches. Scientists aren’t sure exactly what the connection is between orgasm and pain relief but many people have found that reaching sexual climax can bring physical relief.

A positive effect for your partner

While masturbation is, necessarily, about self pleasure, it can also have a positive effect for your partner as well. Some men actually get excited by watching their partner masturbate, and having a better idea of what brings you pleasure can help you guide your partner during sex. 

You should never feel uncomfortable when it comes to showing your partner what you like, good sex should always be about pleasuring both partners, so don’t sell yourself short.

No need to feel guilty about masturbation

And perhaps the most important thing every woman should know about masturbation is that it is not something you should feel guilty about.

There is nothing wrong with pleasuring yourself, even if you are in a committed relationship. Rather than taking away from your experience with your partner, it only enhances it and by allowing you to become more comfortable and confident with your own body, it can actually be empowering.

Masturbation is normal and natural

It’s not a subject that most women talk about easily, but masturbation is a perfectly normal and natural part of the human experience.

So don’t shy away from the idea of experiencing orgasm, it can be one of the most important things you’ll ever do for yourself. Don’t be ashamed…masturbation shouldn’t be a woman’s dirty little secret!

I watched a Oprah show last night where they spoke about masturbation and how we should teach our girls about vibrators at around 15 years old, buy them ones instead of them getting boys to relieve them...was very interesting...but coming from the old school I was glad my girls were adults and that I didnt have to give the SEX talk the modern way.

I don't know about women feeling ashamed to masturbate but certainly ashamed to admit it and talk about it. Strange isn't it, whilst men are often heard bragging about (something else I don't understand) women feel ashamed to admit they do it at all, let alone enjoy it.

good to hear it has health benefits too! ;)

Men don't even try to hide the fact that they do this all the time. There's some kind of stigma to it for women that makes them feel they ought not discuss it. Weird why it's that way.

Amazing that it's considered ok for men but not so ok for women!

Yay to DIY!
