Thankfully masturbation is no longer something hush-hush that nobody talks about or willingly admits to doing, but it still tends to get a bad rap. Despite what some people still believe, masturbation isn’t just a lackluster substitute for people who “can’t” get someone else to have sex with them. It’s actually seriously beneficial for absolutely everyone, including women. Let’s take a closer look at why everyone should be getting down and dirty with their naughty bits on a regular basis.

Masturbation Is Empowering

It goes without saying that having sex with someone else is awesome. Casual sex is awesome. Committed sex with someone you love and trust is awesome. However, you don’t need someone else’s permission or involvement to enjoy everything sexual stimulation brings to the table. Once you really realize that and embrace it, it’s hard not to feel empowered by the act of taking responsibility for your own pleasure.

Masturbating, either au naturel or with the help of an amazing sex toy like the ones you’ll find at FemmeFunn, is the best way to really get to know both your body and mind on a sexual level. You have the freedom to experiment and explore to your heart’s content without fear of pressure or judgment from anyone else. You can take all the time you like and have as many orgasms as you like. Best of all, you don’t ever have to rely on someone else’s ability to please your or give you an orgasm when you want one.

Masturbation Actually Improves Your Sex Life

Masturbation’s reputation as something people settle for when and if they don’t have a partner is really undeserved. Just about everyone masturbates, including people who are in relationships and people who could easily find someone else to get down and dirty with if they wanted to. In fact, masturbation has lots of benefits when it comes to your partnered sex life in particular.

  • Masturbating teaches you what you like and how you like to be touched – information that really comes in handy when you’re in bed with a partner.
  • Masturbation is a great way to make up the difference if one partner has a much higher sex drive than the other.
  • Masturbating together or in each other’s presence can be a seriously sexy (not to mention instructional) way to be intimate with one another.
  • Masturbating regularly is a great way to keep your sex drive and sexual response system in great shape, whether or not you’re currently interested in being intimate with anyone else.

In short, masturbation is a great way to relieve tension, explore, or experiment sexually, both together and separately. Adding the right toys to the mix can even help you discover entirely new erogenous zones, sensations, and techniques you were entirely unaware of before.

Masturbation Makes You Feel Good

Most of the feel-good benefits you already associate with partnered sex actually apply to masturbation too. Orgasms are a powerful way to enhance your mood and relieve stress thanks to the rush of endorphins and feel-good hormones that go with them (like dopamine and oxytocin). That makes enjoying a quick climax whenever you feel the urge one of the best ways to decompress or blow off some steam if life just hasn’t really been going your way.

And have you ever noticed how a really great roll in the hay with your partner right before bed helps you sleep better? Masturbating can be just as effective a sleep aid, so definitely don’t knock it until you try it. Some people have even noticed that after having an orgasm, their sinuses and allergies feel a lot better as well. In other words, anything sex can cure can probably be helped by masturbation as well, so don’t be afraid to go wild.

Masturbation Has Zero Downside

None of the smack talk you’ve likely heard about masturbation all your life is to be believed. So long as you’re doing it in private (or in the presence of another person who’s given their consent), there’s absolutely nothing wrong with masturbating as much as you like. In fact, the more regularly you masturbate, the more of the awesome benefits you’ll reap, both personally and within the context of your romantic or sexual relationships. Masturbation is good for you, inside and out. It’s good for your mind, your spirit, and your body. Best of all, it’s a great way to empower yourself, to get to know yourself better, and more.
