Masturbation is Self-Love

Masturbation is Self-Love

Today I’ve learned that masturbation is more than satisfaction, it is self-love. It’s about exploring, discovering, being intimate with yourself and getting to know your own body.

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:

  • you release tension and stress
  • better sleep
  • boosts your mood and immunity
  • relaxation
  • you feel pleasure
  • can relieve cramps
  • helps you last longer during sex
  • better understand your wants and needs
  • brings you into the moment

Want another benefit of masturbation? Knowing how your body works helps you to discover what turns you on, making easier to get more pleasured. You know exactly how much pressure and how fast you need to go. You can say how you want it to be done. You feel sexy. You feel confident.  Because you are! Confidence will lead you through an amazing path of pleasure and desire. If you love yourself, masturbate. 

When you do that you discover what you like or don’t like, how fast you need to go, where.  Women who masturbate regularly are more likely to feel positive about their body. You’ll get even happier. Such a lot of benefits and it’s all on your hands. 

See what confidence, self-discovering and a lot of pleasure can do for you. Love yourself!

Are you ready to have a new relationship with your body?
