Out of a sudden, why am I writing about masturbation? I asked myself.
Because since the quarantine of covid-19, it has been very difficult to find sex partner to have sex with and none of my lovers are in the same city.
What I have to do? Masturbation. So I asked myself, what benefits do we get from masturbation (beside the pleasure of orgasm obviously), how often is healthy and many other questions that follow.
So I have listed my questions about masturbation as well as benefits from doing it AND how to do it
Really? Do we need to teach ourselves how to masturbate? LOL.
FAQ about Masturbation
Q: Is masturbation normal?
A: Masturbation is completely normal and extremely common. People of all ages masturbate and it's often the first sexual experience they have. Not everybody enjoys masturbating and there's no reason to do it if you don't want to.
Masturbation/wanking/solo-sex etc is completely healthy, natural and safe. It's a great way to get to know your body and what feels good for you. This means you can experience pleasure yourself but will also help you communicate what you like to partners
Q: What is masturbation?
A: Masturbation is when you get sexual pleasure from touching your genitals, usually with your hand. You can masturbate yourself or a partner. Masturbation usually leads to an orgasm. Generally, men and boys masturbate by rubbing or moving their hand up and down their erect penis. Women and girls may use their fingers or hand to rub the area around their clitoris or vagina. Many people enjoy masturbating with their partner as part of a healthy sex life and there's no right or wrong way to masturbate.
Q: Can masturbating cause any health problems?
A: Masturbation doesn't cause any harm, either physically or mentally, even if you do it often. Your genitals may feel sore if you masturbate a lot in a short space of time. If you masturbate with a partner, the risk of passing on or getting a sexually transmitted infection (STI) is low, as long as you don't pass any fluid from your genitals, like semen, to one another on your fingers or in any other way. Although people may be embarrassed to talk about masturbating, you shouldn't feel ashamed of it or guilty about doing it. If you feel the need to masturbate is interfering with your everyday life, talking to a GP may help.
