The 5 Benefits of Masturbation
Ah, masturbation... It's a hot-button topic that few like to talk about - but we're here to help destigmatize and help you master the art of masturbation.
And, guess what? May is National Masturbation Month! Who knew!? We're starting our #masturbateinmay series with the five benefits of masturbation!

It Improves Your Sex Life

While it may sound a bit counterintuitive, masturbating can actually improve your current sex life! Some women find it difficult to orgasm most or every time they have sex with a partner. Before you are able to orgasm with your partner or someone else, it's important to know what works for you. Take time to explore your body to see what makes you feel good - then you can relay it to your partner & improve your sex life!

It Reduces Stress (& Helps You Sleep)

Don't count sheep - count orgasms! When you orgasm, your body releases a relaxation hormone (prolactin) and the happiness hormone (serotonin). Many women find that masturbating helps them relieve stress and sleep better. To get the most bang for your buck, create a calm environment by turning off your phone, breathing, and touching your body to see what feels good!

It Can Help Relieve Period Cramps

Period cramps suck, and having sex on your period can be a bit messy. Solo masturbating sessions can be the answer! As you orgasm, your uterus contracts, causing the blood to release faster - allowing you to be less crampy. But, some women may experience more tension with orgasms, so test it out and see if it helps!

It Can Help Intensify Your Orgasms

Masturbating is a great way to expand your orgasmic potential - especially for those who struggle to orgasm with (or without) a partner. Masturbation teaches you how to have an orgasm - and increases your own sexual awareness. Take time to really explore your body and see what turns you on. It can take some time to figure out how to achieve a G-spot orgasm, clitoral orgasm, or a blended orgasm - but don't give up!

It Can Help Make You More Confident

Masturbating doesn't just help with orgasms and having one with your partner - it helps with your confidence and self-esteem! A lot of women aren't comfortable in their own bodies, but when we start to feel connected to and in control of our bodies through masturbating, it can spill over into other aspects of your life. You'll cultivate more positive feelings around our bodies and feel more confident inside and out!
