🎶 It's the most wonderful time of the year 🎶
Okay, maybe we're exaggerating just a little. But 31 days to celebrate the euphoria that can be self-expression, self-love, self-pleasure?! Oh, yeah. We're all in.
We're lucky enough to be living in an age where discussion surrounding sexuality is becoming more and more open - but that's not to say there isn't still massive room for improvement.
So why have an entire month dedicated to the act?
"Of all the kinds of sex people can have, masturbation is the most universal and important, yet few people talk about it freely." (Read more from founders of National Masturbation Month, Good Vibrations)
We're all about breaking stigmas and feeling comfortable in having an open sex life. Masturbation is a huge part of that, and shouldn't be something that's pressured to be hush-hush.
Masturbation is often a person's first sexual experience and thus becomes a learning experience: discovering your body, your preferences, your dislikes, etc.
"Without the shame, that pleasure is not only healthy, but empowering." (Kinkly)
It's not only perfectly natural to masturbate, it's also beneficial. Offering relief from menstrual cramps, reduction in stress, resistance to infections, and more!
So if you're not the most comfortable or open with masturbating - it's never too late to try! And if you're a bit intimidated by all of the masturbation tool options out there, our tip is to start small. Kama Sutra vibrators like Chari are discreet and non-intimidating. We promise you won't be disappointed. 😉
