May is Masturbation Month!!

So, as the title says, May is Masturbation Month!! Despite what you may have heard growing up, masturbating is actually good for you.

No, really. It can help you learn your own body better, help increase your ability to have orgasms, help you sleep better, relieve cramps and stress, etc. It can increase your self esteem and make you feel good about yourself, and in general. Seriously, it's a great thing to do. Plus, it feels good. I don't think I need to convince you anymore, but in case I do...

According to a study, in the past year, 83% of men and 71% of women ages 25-29 (the most common ages of my readers) have masturbated. That's a lot. Basically, most people masturbate at least once in their lives. The percentages dip down a bit in the early teens and late 60's and 70's, but not even by that much. 

There are so many ways to masturbate. You can use your fingers or toys, read or watch porn, rub up against something. Everyone experiences it differently. If you haven't ever done it, I urge you to take some time now and try! Find out what turns you on. Watch some videos, read some erotica. It is a great feeling to go into a relationship and be able to say "This is what I like." It can just make your sex life that much better! Mutual masturbation is also an option. If you don't feel comfortable touching yourself alone, do it in front of someone who would love to watch! There are so many possibilities.
