- It’s a great way to release s8xual tension.
If you’ve chosen to not have s8x or are simply going through a dry spell, masturbating is a great way to satisfy your libido.
- Masturbating can ease body aches and menstrual pain.If you have a uterine contraction while self-stimulating and a uterine contraction can help menstrual blood come out faster… theoretically it’s going to help with cramps,” Streicher said. While she cautioned that the research behind this benefit is relatively limited, Streicher said there’s no reason not to masturbate while on your period: “It’s never a bad thing and if it seems to help you then go for it.” Either way, it’s more fun than a heating pad.
- It relieves stress.
“Anything that makes you feel more relaxed and gets you to turn off the day, whether you do yoga or get a foot massage, it’s all the same thing,” Streicher said. “It’s not that it has to be s8xual but s8x and self-stimulation is definitely one of the ways to relieve stress.” Sounds like anawesomeway to unwind.
