When it comes to practicing safe sex, there is nothing safer (or more relaxing) than a solo session. Whether it's just a quickie or a sensual evening alone, today's women know that there is nothing wrong with a little self-stimulation.
Masturbation is a normal sexual activity practiced by men and women of all ages, across all demographics. Single folks do it, married folks do it, and its perfectly natural.
And unless you are masturbating in public (which we obviously don't recommend) or doing it so much that it starts to affect your daily activities - it's harmless and quite good for you.
Here are a few more interesting facts about masturbation.
People once believed that giving yourself solo orgasms would make it harder for you to climax during intercourse with a partner.
But as it turns out its the opposite. You see, orgasms cause your body to release sex hormones and send blood rushing to the nether regions - putting your brain in the mood for even more happy times.
And there's a bonus (woohoo!) - By getting to know your own body, and exactly what makes you "tick" you'll be able to show your partner exactly how to touch, stroke and please you.
It Improves Your Mood
We all know that reaching climax feels amazing. During those intense few moments, nothing else in the world matters except that pleasure. It feels good. Really good.
But the benefits of masturbation continue well past those few breath-taking moments. Thanks to the release of dopamine and all sorts of other feel-good hormones, a solo session can release tension and stress , and even enhance the quality of our sleep.
Most People Do It A Little Differently.
You've probably discovered that you have a certain way that you like to please yourself. It's a sure-fire method and it works almost every time (remember practice makes perfect!)
There are endless ways to pleasure yourself. Some women use their fingers to stimulate the clitoris, others use pillows to rub against, and many women today make use of vibrators and other sex toys to help them reach orgasm. There is no right or wrong way to do it, so just experiment until you find what works best for you!
Vibrators Are Our Go-To ( And Men Can Use Them Too!)
Vibrators have been around for quite some time and they've become synonymous with female masturbation. In fact, home vibrators were available long before TV sets or vacuum cleaners (which just goes too show what we want more than anything!) Yes, vibrators definitely take the top spot when it comes to female sex toys.
But there is an interesting fact - did you know that vibrators are not solely used by women? It's true! A national US Survey released that 16.6% of men have used a vibrator when masturbating. And what's more, the men who used vibrators reported having the most satisfying sex lives of all the participants.
So, don't hog that vibrator girl, let your man have a go too!
