Why You Should Always Please Yourself

Although the longest and most important relationship in life is the one with yourself, our culture focuses on celebrating marriage and romantic relationships.

This made the practice of self love, or, female masturbation a little taboo. In reality, pleasuring yourself is enjoyable, good for your body, part of a healthy sex life, and makes you feel phenomenal. If you haven’t tried it yet, here’s why you should.

Female Masturbation is Normal

  • Between 60% and 80% of women (depending on their age) have masturbated during their lifetime.
  • It’s a tool for you to discover where and how you like to be touched — information that can help improve partner intimacy.

A Way to Get to Know Your Own Body

  • The vulva is made up of the mons pubis, labia majora and minora, vagina, and perineum.
  • Majority of women preferred direct clitoral stimulation.
  • You can add to your personal knowledge of what feels good and what feels “meh”.

The Health Benefits of Female Masturbation

  • Masturbation improves our overall well-being. It provides a physical and emotional release, lowers stress and can help with period cramps.
  • Masturbation increases blood flow to the genitals which is essential to good sex with our partners.
  • Orgasms release oxytocin (known as the love hormone), dopamine (which gives us a sense that everything is alright) and endorphins (which are natural pain killers).
  • Helps you feel relaxed, content and sleep better.

It’s All About Self Pleasure

  • It should not be a bare bones experience.
  • Set the mood by adding music, candles, chocolate, and maybe a bubble bath.
  • Arouse yourself. Don’t jump straight to your genitals. (If that’s a struggle, try a female libido booster like Addyi or others).

Remember, masturbation is completely natural and beneficial, don’t let anyone tell you otherwise!
