Health Benefits of Self Pleasure - Masturbation

Self stimulation or Masturbation is considered one of the most common sexual acts on the planet. The silence and shame that shadow masturbation have long and deep roots. Self stimulation is the sensual stimulation of one’s own genitals, usually to the point of supreme pleasure. The stimulation can be performed using the hands, fingers, everyday objects, or dedicated pleasure toys. Mutual stimulation, which is enjoyment with a partner, can take the form of non-penetrative play. 


Even with all of the benefits that this practice can bring to a couple’s sex life, this is still a behavior that many people are not comfortable sharing with their partners.  We can tune in to our fantasies to understand the types of things that turn us on during self-enjoyment. While self enjoyment, do we fantasize about being dominated or being watched? These are clues which help us understand what makes us tick, and in turn, we can begin to understand how to partner. Individuals who are having issues with arousal or extreme pleasue can benefit greatly from self stimulation and self love, getting to know your body techniques

Self enjoyment is a very common behavior, even among people who have a life partner. In one national study, 95% of males and 89% of females reported that they have self-enjoyed. Self-stimulation is the first sensual act experienced by most males and females. In young children, self-enjoyment is a normal part of the growing child’s exploration of his or her body. Most people continue to enjoy by self in adulthood, and many do so throughout their lives.

Masterbtaion is a good way of relieving the sensual tension that can build up over time, especially for people without partners or whose partners are not willing or available for play. Self enjoyment also is a safe sensual alternative for people who wish to avoid pregnancy and the dangers of sexually transmitted diseases. When sensual dysfunction is present in an adult, self enjoyment may be prescribed by a play therapist to allow a person to experience an extreme pleasure (often in women) or to delay its arrival (often in men).

Benefits to a healthy dose of solo sexual practices:

  • It helps teach both sexes about their own sexual response and can be useful in explaining to their partners what feels good and doesn’t. Learning how to touch yourself in ways that are pleasurable is key to sharing that experience with a partner.
  • It is  helpful for men who may have issues with premature ejaculation, as it can familiarize them with the moment of inevitability, so that they can better master their sense of control.
  • Also, it is a great equalizer for couples who may have a disparity in sex drive frequency.
  • Solo orgasm, just as with a partner is a great stress reliever and sleep aid.
  • A 2007 study in Sexual and Relationship Therapy found that male masturbation may also improve immune system functioning and the health of the prostate.
  • For women, it builds pelvic floor muscles and sensitivity and has been associated with less back pain and cramping around menses as it increases blood flow and stimulates relaxation of the area after orgasm.

Self Enjoyment can improve your mood without the ''obligations'' of partnered sex.

Woman usually choose masturbation to improve her spirits. It can improve a depressed mood.  Women who use a vibrator during masturbation tend to have better sexual functioning with a partner, Herbenick says. Those who used a vibrator, she found, even if it had been a year since the last use, "had better sexual functioning in terms of vaginal lubrication, desire, arousal, and ease of orgasm, and they tended to have less pain or discomfort during intercourse."

Self Enjoyment can help you relax.

Women are more apt than men to over-analyze a bad day and think: "How could I have done this better?" They are more likely than men, some researchers have found, to replay an argument or bad interaction with people in their head. It all adds up to excess stress. Researchers call this rumination, and it has been linked in numerous studies to depression. "If you can start pleasuring yourself, that will often interfere with ruminations," Segraves says. "Not all the time," she says. But it may help.

Self Enjoyment can provide pain relief.

Women who masturbate often report that it helps relieve menstrual cramps and to improve the symptoms of premenstrual syndrome (PMS or PMDD), such as irritability and crankiness. Masturbating to orgasm may help migraine, too. Although orgasm has sometimes been found to trigger a migraine headache, it may also relieve it, according to some research. Scientists speculate that some factor associated with orgasm, by yourself or with a partner, may suppress pain or actually suppress the migraine process.

Masturbation is healthy: Self-stimulation is one of the best ways to stay healthy and has many health benefits. It can cure diseases like insomnia, stress, anxiety, menstrual cramp, depression, and it can even stimulate your immune system. Some researches say it’s also a form of exercise; it can burn a few calories even though it can’t match up to gym workout.


Masturbation  is safe: What’s the only 100% safe form of play? It’s self-pleasure. You don’t need to worry about getting pregnant or getting an STD. Unlike play, self-enjoyment is free of cost. It’s your own body, do whatever you want.
