Health Benefits of Masturbating

Health Benefits of MasturbatingYes, you read that right, we’re actually giving foolproof reasons as to why you should be having a little more “me” time every day. Besides providing a little sexual relief whether you are in a relationship or not, masturbation can have a startling effect on the health of your body and your mind. Take a look at these 4 benefits of masturbating.

Benefit #1: It Improves Your Mood
Masturbation, just like sex, releases endorphins such as dopamine and oxytocin into the body that make you feel amazing, happier and more relaxed. When you feel happier and more relaxed you are better able to adjust to the stresses, worries and pressures of life, keeping them from dragging you down and disrupting your overall mental and physical well-being.

Benefit #2: It Helps You Stay Healthy
Several studies in recent years have found that men who masturbate at least five times a week are 40% less likely to develop prostate cancer. Basically, your urogenital area is one big pit stop for toxins that can cause disease in the male body such as prostate cancer and whenever you have a little “me” time you help to release those disease riddled toxins that could otherwise build up and increase your risks for developing diseases in the prostate. Additionally, one of the key benefits of masturbating is it helps to release a hormone known as cortisol into the body that can aid in regulating and boosting your body’s immunity level, helping to fight off everything from the common cold to more serious issues like cancer, heart disease and more.

Benefit #3: It Helps You to Stay Harder Even as You Grow Older
Have you ever heard of Kegels? Well, if not it is an exercise that can help in muscle strengthening, even in the muscles in your pelvic and genital areas. As you grow older those muscles would naturally over time loses some of their gripping power, but the more you do the exercises he stronger your muscles will be, making it easier for your body to get an erection even as you age.

Benefit #4: It Can Help You Have Better Staying Power
Did you know that most women take between 20 and 30 minutes to reach orgasm, while men usually take about 10 minutes? For this reason alone, more regular masturbation is a must if you want to satisfy the ladies in the bedroom. Why? Because masturbating helps your body to learn to holding out longer and stave off an orgasm by simply training your body to take a little bit longer each time your masturbate to orgasm. Try to focus not on the actual time it takes, but rather on how many strokes it takes to get to the finish line. If it takes you 40 strokes one week, try shooting for 50 the next week and so on.
