So, this one's easy.. steps 1 through 3 are masturbate.
Masturbation is a form of sexual self-stimulation that involves touching, rubbing, or otherwise stimulating one's own genitals or erogenous zones to achieve sexual pleasure and, often, orgasm.
Masturbation can be done alone or with a partner, and it is a safe and healthy way to express one's sexuality and a natural form of sexual expression that has been practiced by humans for centuries.
No, really! There is tons of research supporting this fact, right down to pictures of little handcrafted wooden dildos! I've happily explored internet rabbit holes on the subject and encourage you to do the same.
Despite its prevalence however, there are still many misconceptions and stigmas surrounding masturbation.
In reality, there are numerous benefits to masturbation that make it a healthy and important part of sexual health and wellbeing. I believe you deserve daily orgasms and for those of us who may be practicing social abstinence, that may mean that solo self-love sessions are on the menu.
There are many, many ways to engage in solo and in fact, partnered play but today what I would like to highlight are the underlying benefits to your health. After all, no matter your creed, health equals wealth. Read on, and let's get rich!
Here are three reasons why masturbation is healthy:
1. Masturbation relieves sexual tension and stress.
Masturbation is a great way to relieve sexual tension and stress. Sexual arousal causes the release of endorphins, which are natural painkillers and mood boosters.
When you engage in masturbation, you experience a rush of these feel-good chemicals, which can help to reduce stress and anxiety. In fact, research has shown that masturbating can lower cortisol levels, a hormone associated with stress.
2. Masturbation promotes healthy sexual function.
Masturbation is an excellent way to explore your own body and learn what feels good to you. This knowledge can then be used to enhance sexual experiences with partners.
By masturbating, you can also improve your sexual function and overall sexual health. Regular masturbation has been shown to improve blood flow to the genitals, which can help to prevent erectile dysfunction and improve arousal.
3. Improves mood and sleep
As mentioned earlier, masturbation causes the release of endorphins, which can improve mood. In addition, these chemicals can also promote relaxation and help you fall asleep more easily.
Masturbating before bed can be a great way to unwind and improve sleep quality.
In conclusion, masturbation is a natural and healthy aspect of sexuality that offers numerous benefits. It can relieve stress, improve sexual function, and promote better mood and sleep.
Despite the stigma that still surrounds masturbation, it is important to recognize the positive impact it can have on sexual health and overall wellbeing. You deserve it.
