Before we start with anything else I simply want to know do you know what masturbation is. 90% of the people don’t know even what exactly masturbation is, all they know is how to jerk off. Let me tell you step wise for a better understanding.
What Is Masturbation?
Masturbation is an act of self pleasure, where one satisfies his/her sexual desires (by mere rubbing and touching) which may or may not be satisfied otherwise; without involving anybody else, without hurting anybody. I call it second form of peeing; the only difference is color and nature of fluid being ejected.
Still, it is being considered as sin in many communities of world, but do you really think it is a crime? If you’ll simply Google masturbation, you’ll find 1000’s of links which states masturbation as a sin. Some links would say it should not be practiced, while others state that masturbation is not good for health.
Myths About Masturbation
Most common myths related to masturbation that you might have heard or if you haven’t heard yet then you may get to hear are:
- It reduces sperm count with every ejaculation and one day you’ll be an empty tank without sperm.
- It causes pimples, stomach disorders and softens bones.
- Masturbation reduces life span.
- It causes several genital diseases as well.
Trust me; all of these are mere myths. Nobody in this world has ever proved these allegations scientifically that masturbation could cause any of the above mentioned health problem or any other disorder. It’s just being coming from old times that masturbation is not healthy, that’s why you must have heard the story of Kellogg’s Corn Flakes discovery as well; since these were discovered as an anti masturbatory diet.

So Should you just go and practice masturbation?
I am not saying that now you should go and masturbate ruthlessly without thinking of health. Masturbation in itself is not unhealthy at all. It’s the way one masturbates that makes it impact your health. In fact I can show you examples where people actually get benefited by masturbating. You would be surprised to know this, but doctors now-a-days recommend masturbation to the patients suffering from stress and depression.
If you know your number (number of times to masturbate in a week or month), you know how to masturbate, and what to do after masturbation and what to eat after masturbation and you abide by all these, there is nothing in this world that could turn you sexually or physically weak. Instead you will begin to see positive change in yourself. So, lets have a look at the benefits of masturbation.
Health Benefits of Masturbation:
You can reap so many benefits by masturbating a healthy way:
1. Release Stress & Depression with Masturbation:
As mentioned above, even doctors these days are recommending masturbation to stress, anxiety and depression patients. But do you know why? Actually while masturbating, our body produces a certain chemical called endorphin. This chemical (endorphin) has the ability to lower the increased blood pressure and provide a soothing effect to brain. Even doctors recommend the vaccine with this chemical for stress patients for a better sleep. So why to have medicine for something which our body may produce on its own.
Even if you are not a stress patient, you might have observed that on nights before exam it’s hard to fall asleep. But if you would masturbate in such situations you would fall asleep within 5-10 minutes.
2. Increase Immunity with Masturbation:
Masturbation and immunity? Surprised?? You might have always thought the other way round, that masturbation decreases body’s capability to fight against diseases. But the truth is, masturbating actually provides a boost to immune system. Since it involves a lot of hormonal activities inside our body, and one of the hormone which is produced during masturbating is cortisol. This Hormone is one which actually helps regulate and maintain immunity. It not only boosts immunity on its own but also creates such an environment inside body that it utilizes the existing vitamins and minerals to create antibodies.
3. Masturbating Relieves Cramps:
Masturbating during that time of the month for females could really help them get aid in the pain. Since it increases blood flow to the pelvic area, which helps a lot in easing pain. Similarly for guys; whenever you get cramps, then try masturbating once, it will surely provide a faster and pain free recovery. It will for sure beat the hot water bottle on improvement scale from pain while cramps.
There are studies which have shown that, a good orgasm while masturbating can actually provide relief from pain as severe as fracture.
4. It Prevents Prostate Cancer:
The main reason for prostate cancer is the toxins build up in the urogenital tract. Since, while masturbating, the urogenital track is used to carry sperm from testosterones to the edge of the penis (in males) and the similar is the use in case of females, thus the toxins do not get to stay and are flushed every time you ejaculate. Studies have also proven that men who ejaculate five times a week (masturbate) are one hundredth less likely to develop prostate cancer as compared to the ones who never does.
5. Masturbation Fights Premature Ejaculation:
The biggest fear of a man – “Premature Ejaculation”. This happens when man gets over excited while having sex and could not control the feelings and ends up ejaculating much early. In such cases, masturbating may prove out to be your best friend. Next time, before hitting the bed, do masturbate 2 hours before the sex. This would for sure help you last longer in the bed since body takes some time between consecutive ejaculations. And 2 hours I have mentioned so that your body gets to recover of the first ejaculation in the mean. And try and eat a good diet (click here for best diet).
4. Masturbating Prevents Erectile Dysfunction:
Another thing that men fear the most, the worst nightmare – ED or Erectile Dysfunction. Many of you must be thinking that masturbation in itself is the cause of it, then how come it can cure ED. Look, the logic is very simple. Erectile dysfunction happens when pelvic floor muscles become weak. And since masturbating works out the pelvic floor muscles, thus it acts as a workout activity for those muscles (like pushups for chest); hence ends up strengthening them and prevents ED from the root itself.
And let me correct you, that masturbation is not the cause of it, wrong way of masturbating is.
5. Gives Younger Looking Skin:
There are a number of ways in which masturbating helps you keep skin young and flawless. First of all as mentioned above, masturbation helps provide relieve from stress; stress being the biggest contributor to ageing skin, masturbation thus helps fight stress and saves skin from early ageing signs like wrinkles and dark spots.
Secondly, since it helps fight insomnia by providing relief to brain, it doesn’t let dark circles appear on the skin (one of the sign of ageing). And third is while masturbating, our heart pumps rigorously, thus helps blood circulation, which is usually less in facial areas otherwise, hence provides much needed vitamins and minerals to the skin and helps curb deficiencies if any. It not only helps provide younger skin but also fight several skin ailments.
This is not it; the list of benefits may stretch up to 100’s of points. Many studies have shown that masturbating also helps in getting relief from cold. It has also been proved that masturbation helps last longer in bed. After reading all these benefits you must be wondering that knowingly or unknowingly you have really done a lot for your health and body.
But all these benefits mentioned above are valid only if you are masturbating the right way. Right way includes a number of things that one needs to take care of – How to Masturbate, How much to Masturbate, What to do after Masturbation and What should be your diet if you Masturbate often. These are very crucial things that one easily looks over and often land to a stage where in these benefits turn out to be harmful for your health without letting you know. Really, if it could give you wings then it could also bring you don’t control yourself.
