Masturbation! Now I have your attention…
1. People who masturbate have sex more often than those who don’t.
If you masturbate, you’re more likely to be sexually open, and therefore, enjoy more frequent sex. Also, if you know what you like when you’re solo, it will enhance your sexual experience with your partner.
2. More women masturbate than are willing to admit.
Not that shocking but sad all the same. Most teenagers are already going at it with themselves: Surveys show that before both genders have reached 18, 80 percent of males and 59 percent of females have given masturbation a whirl.
As far as people over 18, the numbers get a bit shady. Many women will only admit to it in confidential surveys and certainly won’t speak about it.
3. Older people masturbate, too.
Your sex drive just gets more revved up as you get older. Many men and women over 70 enjoy frequent masturbation especially if they find themselves widowed.
4. The U.K. government actually once encouraged masturbation!
In 2009, the U.K. government got on the bandwagon with other European nations to encourage teenagers to masturbate at least once a day. Not only was masturbating defined as a “right” in health pamphlets, but it was also touted as helping to reduce STDs and teen pregnancy.
5. You won’t lose the ability to orgasm during actual sex.
Some people may worry masturbation can cause you to no longer be satisfied by your partner. This is a myth, your orgasms will be just fine. In fact, vibrators and digital stimulation can work wonders during sex as many women have trouble achieving orgasm during intercourse.
Touching yourself while your partner is inside you can create powerful orgasms. and mutual masturbation can be a great alternative to traditional sex.
So Fanny’s verdict is get busy with your digits, it’s good for your sexual health, prowess and a whole lotta fun!
