Do-It-Yourself | Ending Masturbation Month the Right Way

Do-It-Yourself | Ending Masturbation Month the Right Way

May 30, 2018

ICYMI lovers - May is National Masturbation Month.

 

That’s right. A whole month dedicated to recognizing the DIY deed. We hope you’ve been keeping plenty busy in celebration. 😉

 

We already know that masturbating has its perks. But how much do we really know about the benefits it offers?

 

These solo sessions cause a release of dopamine, activating the ‘pleasure center’ of your brain. Endorphins from this work to decrease the body’s perception of pain and bring a wave of relaxation.

 

So, ladies, feeling those monthly menstrual cramps? Masturbation helps in reducing the discomfort. What about fatigue, or trouble sleeping? The relief post-climax also brings a surge of prolactin, which helps ease the transition into a peaceful night’s sleep.

 

And for the fellas - note that studies have shown masturbation is not a “waste of sperm” as it actually works to improve the fitness of sperm from getting rid of the older, less in shape ones more often. It’s also been backed that higher frequencies of ejaculation correlate to lower risks of prostate cancer. So do yourself and your health favor and uh, do it. For science.

 

While masturbating is a great way to exercise your sex muscles, it’s important to remember that technique is key. Meaning that you should be switching up your strategies so your body doesn’t get used to the same ol’ moves and later not respond as much to outside stimulation.

 

Luckily, we have plenty of suggestions for how to switch up your game. Take a break from hand play with our Rhythm Toy collection where you can experiment with everything from intensity levels to couples’ play.
