Masturbation Month: Why Masturbating is Healthy, Not Shameful

May 16, 2015

In the US, May is National Masturbation Month, but we at KIIROO think it should be celebrated world-wide (and year-long)! To help you kick it off right, we’re going to talk about one of the biggest barriers to orgasmic pleasure: Shame.

If you’ve ever experienced sexual shaming, you’re definitely not alone. Sexual shame can take many forms, but it’s often tied to pleasure, the number of partners a person has had, and what turns a person on. Women who talk about sex can be unfairly labelled “slutty” or “easy”, while men are made to feel like sex toys made for them are somehow weird.

 

Masturbation and sexual pleasure are healthy! They should be enjoyed and embraced.

Studies have shown that regular masturbation can improve both your physical and mental health. For those with penises and prostates, ejaculating regularly can help prevent prostate cancer. In addition, ejaculation releases cortisol and boosts your immunity. For those with a clitoris, masturbation has been linked to stress relief, pain management, and mood stabilization. In fact, there are no health risks associated with masturbating as long as you’re not using anything unsafe.

Beyond the health benefits, masturbation offers a way to know your body better. Almost everyone is interested in how they can improve their sex lives, and masturbation is one of the easiest ways to do it. Why?

  1. By learning what you like, you can better communicate that information to your partner.
  2. If you’re looking to last longer in bed, practicing staving off orgasm through masturbation is a tried and true technique.
  3. Masturbating alone allows you to try new techniques and new toys without the potential pressure of trying those things with a partner.

When you consider all of the great things that masturbation can help you accomplish, why shame it? Masturbation should be celebrated.
