Today I’ve learned that masturbation is more than satisfaction, it is self-love. It’s about exploring, discovering, getting more intimacy with yourself and getting to know your own body.
Men and women, single or in a relationship. On yourself or on your partner. No matter how: it's amazing and everyone knows it, but not everyone does it – for prejudice or fear. We grew up with the idea that masturbation is kind of a sin. Mostly for women. For men, it’s seen as more common, since their younger ages. Men masturbate more frequently than women do. Besides that, some people may feel guilty about masturbating because of cultural, spiritual, or religious beliefs.
There’s another kind of people, those ones who don’t like to know that their partners masturbate. They feel betrayed because of that! Which is quite weird for me, because I believe that every person has the right to have its own space to self-discovery. I think it’s beneficial for both. Whether you're in a relationship or single, masturbation can help you reconnect with your internal sensuality and capacity for pleasure.
When it comes to the benefits of masturbation, a lot of people have questions, but it's been scientifically proven that it’s good and we should do it more. So why is it so embarrassing to talk about? It’s time to change that. Masturbation is natural, healing and shouldn’t be an uncomfortable topic. Besides the physical benefits, masturbation has a serious positive impact on how you see and treat your body.
When we ignore judgments and taboos about the topic we can take control of our cravings and desires and learn to actually love ourselves.
I see masturbation as a self-gift. Full of benefits. And there’s nothing wrong with that. For me, as a woman, it’s important to know me before being with someone else. If I know what I enjoy, It’s easier to guide and it’s more likely to have experiences that could be a lot more intense and fulfilling. I value best my moments, and I value me as a person. I’ve been discovering new versions of me. And I’m in love with that.
Why masturbation and self-confidence are powerful aphrodisiacs:
