5 Reasons to do it Yourself

Touching yourself for sexual pleasure can be good for you!

Spank that monkey.

Rub that rascal.

Stroke that sweet spot.

Masturbation. Whatever you do and whatever you call it, know that you’re perfectly normal and there is no shame in a little self-pleasure!

I receive so many emails from concerned masturbators who fear that their solo sex sessions are inherently deviant and will inevitably lead to sexual and/or health problems. However, nothing could be farther from the truth. In fact, touching yourself for sexual pleasure can be good for you!

Here are a few reasons to DIY:


It just might be good for your health


Studies suggest that sexual pleasure, both partnered and solo, is linked with positive health outcomes including improved prostate health, heightened immunity and better circulation.


It can make partnered sex more pleasurable


Most of us agree that you have to love yourself before you can open up to being loved by another and the same principles apply to sex. Masturbation not only offers an opportunity to discover new pathways to pleasure, but as you become more comfortable and familiar with the way your body responds to sexual touch, this will only heighten the experience when a partner joins in.


It relieves stress and promotes restful sleep


Sexual pleasure and orgasm create a beautiful cascade of hormonal changes within the body, which can reduce stress levels and help you to sleep soundly. And a good night’s sleep is associated with a host of other health benefits including improved memory function, increases in happiness and general longevity.


It can boost your self-esteem and body image


As we learn to derive pleasure from our bodies, we also learn to appreciate our natural beauty. Whenever our bodies perform for us, whether it be through sport, dance or sex, it is common to experience a confidence boost. Masturbation is no exception.


It’s a natural painkiller and mood-booster


Got a headache, cramps or body aches? A solo petting session might be just what the doctor ordered!

Feeling down in the dumps? The endorphin release associated with a little self-pleasure can elevate your mood in a matter of minutes!




So, what are you waiting for? Go ahead and get started with the five-knuckle shuffle!
