Learn ALL About Masturbation

Masturbation is nothing to be ashamed of, feel guilty about or anything you should be afraid of. It’s a very natural thing that most species do and almost every person has done, sometimes without even knowing it. I say this because even as babies and young children one of the first things we do is explore our new found body.
We touch, squeeze, tickle and our hands venture into places that can cause certain reactions that we may enjoy yet not understand.

Unfortunately most of the guilt or shame we feel from this touching of our privates comes from early childhood experiences brought on by our parents reactions to what we were doing. Think about it, when children touch their genitals, most of the time its not in a sexual way but in an exploring way and in the majority of cases they are immediately told to stop, that its bad, dirty, wrong, gross, naughty and are shot scornful looks from their parents. Sometimes their hands are slapped away or they are even punished for it. And without realizing it all of these experiences shape and form what we think of our bodies and how we use it.

That being said I just want to let you all know that there is nothing wrong with masturbating. There is nothing wrong with exploring your body and figuring out what you like and there is nothing wrong with giving yourself an orgasm.
Contrary to previous statements about masturbating being bad for you there are actually quiet a few positive benefits; it releases tension, lowers your stress level, helps to release endorphins that relieve pain, (which is why the “honey I have a headache” is a poor excuse for not putting out), it helps to burn calories and it’s a natural sleep sedative.
In men its be found to Improve the immune system’s functioning, Build resistance to prostate gland infection and possibly even reduce a man’s risk of developing prostate cancer. Not to mention the fact that it can help guys increase ejaculatory control and manage rapid or delayed ejaculation, basically you can teach yourself to last longer.
As for women it’s great for combating pre-menstrual tension and other physical conditions associated with the menstrual cycles like cramps and backache. It can help prevent cervical infections and relieve urinary tract infections as well as generally help us to gain confidence in our sexuality as women.

Aside from all those wonderful benefits masturbating is a great way to learn about what you like and dislike when it comes to arousing yourself and achieving an orgasm. If there is one thing that I am a big believer in its that you cant blame your partner for not helping you achieve an orgasm if you don’t even know what it takes to get you there. No matter if you are a male or a female, learning about your body and how to excite it is your responsibility so is telling your partner so that they can provide what you require and the only way to learn is to do it yourself.
Finally, in regard to the questions I’m sent I think the most common are “how much is too much?”and “whats wrong with me, I don’t know how to stop”
I think the best way to answer this question is to point out that so long as it’s not interfering with your everyday activities like keeping you from hanging out with friends, making you late for work, is the only thing on your mind and the only thing you want to do, you don’t really need to worry.

As for what’s considered “normal”; ‘Normal’ ranges from several times per day, week or month to never masturbating at all. The frequency of masturbation isn’t a problem unless it is linked with an obsessive compulsive disorder, where the same activity must be repeated over and over.
