masturbation effects on brain

It shocks me to learn how infrequently my female friends pleasure themselves. Both those in relationships and those who aren’t are not doing it enough. There are plenty of reasons for people in both situations to pleasure themselves more. It’s good for those in relationships. It’s good for single individuals. And we know that the men in our lives are doing it regularly. I understand that many think it’s gross or immature that men do it a lot. But maybe they’re just onto something. It’s a shame, really, that we grow up with the idea that that’s more of a “man thing to do.” It perpetuates the idea that pleasure, for the sake of it, is just for men. Why would women do that if they aren’t having sex with a man? Right? WRONG! Here are reasons you should masturbate more.


You’ll sleep better

When you orgasm, your brain releases relaxing chemicals that can help you sleep. You know this from the times you pass out immediately after sex. You definitely know this from every time your male partners pass out right after sex.
