5 Health Benefits For Men Who Masturbate
Despite being common practice for both men and women, masturbation is still considered a very taboo subject. Why? After all, studies reveal that 73.8 percent of men and 48.1 percent of women masturbate frequently. That means the majority of men are self-pleasuring, and half of women are doing the same.
Sure, not everybody masturbates — and that’s OK — but based on an increasing amount of data, it turns out that masturbating is very good for you.
So, guys, here are five ways masturbating can be beneficial to your health and wellbeing...so what are you waiting for?
1. It Lowers Stress Levels
Life can be pretty stressful. Hell, 2020 was very stressful. 2021? It’s starting off just as stressful! So, whether your relationship status is set to ‘single,’ ‘in a relationship,’ or ‘it’s complicated,’ it’s a good idea to process all that stress physically — even on your own. Masturbating can help reduce all that stress by getting you into that moment where nothing else matters. Be sure to take some time for yourself.
2. Help Alleviate Sexual Problems
Not many people know that masturbation is very good at treating sexual issues such as low libido or erectile dysfunction. Remarkably, when a person experiences sexual dysfunction, it’s beneficial to masturbate because it helps you learn new ways to get your body’s sexual energy flowing again. It also helps you realize what’s turning you off and how to let your partner know how to keep you turned on.
3. Tossing and Turning
Can’t sleep? Try masturbating! Not getting your eight hours can take a toll on your physical and mental health. So, if your mind keeps you awake, why not think of something — or someone — and jerk yourself off? When you have an orgasm before going to bed, the body is more relaxed because it releases the love hormones dopamine and oxytocin.
4. Keeping It to Yourself
You don’t have to worry about pregnancy or STDs when you have sex with yourself! It’s quite simple. That’s probably why it feels so good.
5. Lower The Risk of Prostate Cancer
A 2004 study from Harvard University found that those with prostates who ejaculated at least 21 times a month were less likely to be at risk for prostate cancer. Making time to masturbate nearly every day to ward off a serious medical condition doesn’t sound like hard work.
