If you’re anything like most men, chances are you’re not a stranger to masturbation. There’s even a possibility that you’ve just done the deed or perhaps planning to give it a go later.
What’s really interesting is “beating the meat,” “holding the sausage hostage” and “playing tug of war with the Cyclops” is more than just gratifying yourself sexually. Sure you may think that I’m pulling your leg, but this is actually true.
I know this sounds a bit surprising right now, but you’ll find out more when you follow along…
It helps you relax.
For starters, masturbation basically promotes the release of positive hormones like dopamine and oxytocin that helps relieve stress. Besides making you feel more relaxed, it also takes away feelings of worry and anxiety that can make you unproductive and sulky when your stress levels go off the charts.
It helps prevent premature ejaculation.
Masturbating in a regular basis helps you become more familiar when your positive hormones reach their peak levels during lovemaking. When this happens, your brain activates your body’s orgasmic and ejaculatory responses. Having an idea when the whole thing takes place makes you last longer when things get hot in the bedroom.
(I’ve also come across a simple and natural technique that you can use to stave off premature ejaculation when you and your lover are at it between the sheets.)
It staves off prostate issues.
According to the results of an Australian study, men who ejaculated three to five times a week helped prevent the buildup of harmful toxins in and around the prostate area, which can potentially lead to health issues in the long run. Moreover, it also keeps the urogenital tract free of bacteria that may cause diseases, too. Isn’t masturbation versatile?
It helps you maintain quality erections.
Did you know that masturbating regularly “trains” your body to achieve strong and lasting erections on demand? See, you’re basically helping your brain develop a stimulus that once you get in the mood, you should rise up to the occasion. And getting rock hard when you need to is definitely an asset in bed, isn’t it?
It boosts your immune levels.
You probably already know about how positive hormones and masturbation – excuse the pun – hand in hand. See, when you’ve got enough dopamine and oxytocin in the body, you immune levels go up. Apart from helping keep diseases at bay, you’re also going to maintain your overall wellness.
