Chances are you’re already quite familiar with masturbation.
Besides being one of the most pleasurable activities that you can do even without your partner, making it a habit to “attack the one-eyed purple-headed warrior” and “call in the secret service” also has a lot of cool benefits that you’re sure to find really interesting.
Make sure you follow along to find out what these are…
Masturbation makes you feel happier.
Let’s start things off with a benefit of masturbation that you’ll surely appreciate right off the bat.
See, your body goes through a surge of positive hormones like dopamine and oxytocin when you masturbate. These hormones also linger for a bit after you achieve orgasm and come.
Apart from making your skin, especially in and around the erogenous zones, more sensitive to stimulation, these positive hormones also help boost your feelings of excitement and happiness, which usually happens after your masturbation session is over.
This is the reason why masturbation is a proven stress reliever.
Masturbation helps prevent prostate cancer.
According to a number of clinical studies, masturbation helps clear out toxins and other unwanted things in the prostate area that can lead to health issues and even cancer in the long run if allowed to accumulate.
Masturbating frequently prevents these toxins from building up inside you and helps keep your overall wellness up to par.
Now how about that? Masturbation keeps you in great shape and staves off prostate cancer, too.
Masturbation helps keep erectile dysfunction at bay.
When you masturbate, you are basically “practicing” achieving strong and lasting erections. And according to the popular maxim, practice makes perfect, right?
This is because you are stimulating the erectile tissues in the penis to absorb the ideal amount of blood they need to firm up and achieve quality erections. The more you do it, the easier and quicker it will be for these tissues to get ready for action.
With an activity as pleasurable as masturbation, you’d never want to miss out on this “practice” as well.
(And it can also help prevent premature ejaculation while we’re on the subject.)
Masturbation prevents anxiety and other maladies.
Like we’ve touched on earlier, masturbation helps release lots and lots of positive hormones like oxytocin, dopamine as well as endorphins that boost your overall disposition.
Having ample amounts of these in the body not only helps you stay happy, but also safe from panic attacks and even problems with the circulation.
The next time you feel down, try masturbating. You’ll be just surprised with the results.
