5 Things You May Not Know About Female Masturbation
Jan 11, 2018
We don’t often talk about it, but almost all of us do it. Masturbation is a healthy way for women to achieve sexual satisfaction on our own, and though the stigma of discussing our solo sex lives has diminished, many of us are still unwilling to admit our forays of personal pleasure. Regardless of how willing we are to discuss our private time with others, there are five things every woman should know about ménage à moi.
- Health Benefits
Masturbation has health benefits. It increases blood flow and releases endorphins. Increased blood flow helps oxygen to be better distributed throughout the body, leading to better brain function and greater cardiovascular health. Endorphins are the brain’s “feel-good chemical,” they elevate mood and reduce stress, which can carry over long after you’ve finished.
- Relationship Benefits
Masturbation isn’t just for singles, it can help to improve your non-solo sex life as well! Not only does masturbation feel good, it also can make you more sexualy confident and comfortable when you’re with your partner. For women who have trouble reaching orgasm, masturbation can be a great way to discover yourself and help direct your partner in such a way that you both come away satisfied.
- Prevent or Reduce Postmenopausal Sexual Dysfunction
Menopause can affect a woman’s sexual function. The vagina can narrow and natural lubrication can diminish, causing sexual intercourse to be painful. By masturbating with a water-based lubricant, you can prevent narrowing and alleviate any issues that arise from lack of natural lubricant, such as soreness. As stated above, masturbation increases blood flow, which can aid natural lubrication and elasticity.
- No Expectations
When you’re engaging in a little alone time, you’re in command. You set the pace. Take as little or as much time as you need or want. Don’t try to rush yourself, rushing can make the experience less enjoyable, but that doesn’t mean you can’t squeeze in a quickie every now and then.
- Try a Toy
If you have trouble bringing yourself to orgasm on your own–or you just like a little variety in your life–try a toy. There is a large variety of toys available depending on your needs or desires, ranging from realistic looking toys to toys that need instruction booklets to figure out where to put them or how to use them.
