5 Reasons to Masturbate

Masturbation is a normal, healthy, and amazingly enjoyable part of sexuality that promotes self care and self exploration. It has numerous physical and mental health benefits as well as feeling really good! Help inspire a regular masturbation routine with these 5 reasons to masturbate.

Masturbation can improve your mood
Orgasms cause your body to release oxytocin, dopamine, and endorphins (the happy hormones), while lowering your cortisol (the stress hormone) levels.

It can cut your cravings
Lowering cortisol levels with an orgasm can help cut food cravings brought on by stress. These emotionally triggered cravings are usually for fats, sugars, and carbs that temporarily help, but end up stressing the body out more in the long term.

Sleep better!
Ever feel sleepy right after you cum? The release of oxytocin that happens with a orgasm helps relieve tension and tire the body. This means falling asleep faster and enjoying a deeper snooze throughout the night.

It can help you be more productive
If you ever find yourself in a funk mentally, masturbation can be a great way to clear your mind and switch gears between tasks. It can also be great for talking a mental break from long work or study periods.

Relieve some muscle tension and pain
The hormone release that is triggered when you orgasm can also cause a decrease in overall muscle tension. This is great for headaches, chronic muscle tension, menstrual cramps, and rheumatoid arthritis.
