Why You Should Have Some “Me Time” Regularly
Masturbation is pretty much still a hush hush topic to talk about, especially in an Asian country. We’re shy to open up about the “M” topic, even with your girlfriends.
The funny thing is in 2017, Pornhub revealed that Malaysian women ranked 7th in the world for watching porn on mobile devices. Which just proves that while we may be shy to talk about it, we’re actually active in getting in touch with our bodies.
This is good news because masturbating is normal and healthy for you too. Here are all the amazing benefits your body gets when you start to masturbate regularly.
1. Helps ease body aches and menstrual pain
Having an orgasm during your period may turn out to be a beneficial solution for your body. According to a sex therapist, your pain tolerance goes up while having an orgasm and masturbating increases blood. This helps to minimize your period pains during your one-on-one time. The next time you’ve got cramps, ditch the heating pads and bring out the vibrators.
2. Relieves stress
Masturbation release endorphins throughout your body which are also released from exercising and foot massages. It also allows you to focus only on one thing, hence easing your mind into a state of relaxation. Stressed? Well, you know what to do!
3. Snooze better
Feeling yourself down there keeps your blood pressure low and puts your body in a state of relaxation, allowing you to fall into a deeper sleep. Plus, orgasms physically and emotionally relieve tension and exhaust the body, so you’re bound to fall asleep after all that hard work.
4. Flush out bad bacteria in your pelvic area
Your body secretes vaginal mucus during masturbation because it stretches the vaginal muscle. This allows fluid circulation which flushes bacteria from your lady area, keeping it nice and clean.
5. Makes you comfortable and confident
Who else knows your body better other than you? A way for you to become besties with your body is to explore it. Self-pleasure helps you to understand your own anatomy – what it likes, how it moves and probably even expand your ability to climax!
6. All about dem’ happy vibes
Pleasures generally make people feel good. But when you masturbate regularly and orgasm, it releases the endorphins called dopamine and oxytocin, which improves your mood and creates a natural high. Besides, with less stress, better sleep and confidence in your skin, you’re bound to feel great!
So, dim the lights, burn some candles, play some romantic music from Fly X and hop into bed — it’s time to partake in a little self exploration.
