You Can Decrease UTIs, Improve Your Mood And Other Reasons Your Doctor Wants You To Masturbate More
Quick question: Do you masturbate? Chances are, that question made at least some of you reading this just a little bit uncomfortable. When it comes to women, masturbation has always been somewhat of a taboo topic. Most of us don’t even like to talk about it with our closest girlfriends. And for some, the subject is so out of the question because they don’t masturbate at all. But that may not be the healthiest course of action.
Not only should women feel comfortable talking about masturbation, but they should also get comfortable doing it: doctor’s orders. As it turns out, there are lots of health reasons all women should be masturbating more. And it’s not just a question of feeling good. Regular DIY exploration can improve your physical health, your mood, and your relationship. It can even help you lose weight!
So feel free to read on to find out how self-love does the body good.
It Cures Insomnia
And as a unique sleeping aid, it’s a lot more fun than a glass of warm milk.
It Can Keep You Out Of The Diaper Aisle
We’re all trying to fight off some of the symptoms of old age. And did you know that masturbating regularly can help keep your muscles strong enough to ward off incontinence after pregnancy and later in life?
It Gets You To The Gynecologist
Women who masturbate regularly know their bodies better and are more likely to regularly visit a gynecologist than women who don’t.
It Keeps UTIs At Bay
Want to stop drinking so much cranberry juice? Regular self-service keeps UTIs and other infections at bay by opening up the cervix to flush bad bacteria out and keep the good stuff in.
It Leads To Heart Health
There’s nothing like a doctor’s note to give yourself a little permission. And did you know that women who have regular orgasms — DIY or not — have a lowered risk of heart disease? They’re also less likely to develop Type II Diabetes.
It Can Be Dicey To Go Without
We’ve all heard about what happens when you stop having sex for too long. But women who keep their motor running while they’re waiting to get back in the saddle can skip a lot of those side effects.
You’re Less Likely To Backslide With An Ex
If dialing up bad decisions when you’re lonely is one of the things you’ve been speaking openly about in your therapy sessions, you’ll be happy to know that masturbation can help.
Just like having a snack before grocery shopping can help keep bad decisions out of your cart, handling your business before thinking too hard about Mr. Not Good For You can keep you from making regrettable bedroom decisions.
You Have More Intense Orgasms
Orgasms rely on muscles. And exercising yours with regular DIY orgasms will make those muscles stronger. Not only does the regular workout keep your uterus healthy and oxygenated, working that muscle out means stronger and more intense orgasms over time.
Masturbation Boosts Your Mood
And it’s not just because of all of the solo fun you’re having. Masturbation releases chemicals — oxytocin and serotonin — that are scientifically proven to give you a natural high and boost your mood.
It Can Help Stop Cramps In Their Tracks
Some women find it helps to put mild cramps in their place.
You’ll Be Less Stressed
Had a bad day? It’s much more effective than a cup of tea when it comes to releasing hormones and immediately de-stressing your day.
It Can Battle Type II Diabetes
If you have a family history of one of the most common diseases in the U.S., a little daily alone time — paired with a healthier diet — can actually help keep this preventable disease at bay.
It Leads To A Healthy Sex Life
Rumor has had it (mostly among men intimidated by vibrators) that too much solo flying will make you less interested in the real thing. But don’t believe the hype. Women who masturbate regularly actually have more interest in the sex we all need to keep us healthy!
It Helps You Lose Weight
One doctor recently discovered that masturbation as a reward for a healthy diet can help keep you focused on losing weight better than dieting alone!
