Everything You Need to Know About Masturbation

Introduction

Masturbation is defined as touching one’s own body for sexual pleasure. It sometimes ends in orgasm, but not always. For many, masturbation is a taboo topic often referred to by euphemisms like jacking off, flicking the bean, or spanking the monkey. It’s frequently a source of guilt and shame few openly admit to doing. Science tells us, however, self pleasure is exceptionally common. A 2010 study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that 84% of men and 72% of women aged 25-29 have done it in the past year. Some people masturbate multiple times a day and are still considered perfectly happy and healthy.

Researchers and experts overwhelmingly agree masturbation offers a myriad of psychological and physical health benefits. Masturbation can relieve stress, boost your immune system, ease insomnia, fight erectile dysfunction, and even make partnered sex better. It’s not only a normal part of human sexual development, it’s a very important part of a healthy sex life. Luckily, negative societal attitudes about masturbation have lessened in recent years. Gone are the days when we believed masturbators risked growing hair on their palms or would experience terrible acne breakouts. Today we have toys, tips, and tools at our disposal to help us get the most out of self pleasure.
