Even though few women openly discuss their personal DIY time, studies show that 90% of us are rubbing one out on the regular.
That means 9 out of 10 women are doing something right. Because masturbation is not a deviant act. It’s actually a revolutionary act against the patriarchy, with genuine health, sex and beauty benefits.
FACT: You’re more likely to reach orgasms during sex with a partner if you know exactly the kind of touch your body needs to get there.
FACT: The more orgasms you have, the more you want.
FACT: During menopause, the vagina can narrow, which can make intercourse more painful. But masturbation can help boost blood flow, relieve some tissue and moisture problems, and increase sexual desire.
FACT: Masturbating can release the feel-good hormone Oxytocin, which can naturally relieve stress and anxiety.
FACT: Masturbation works like Mindful Meditation. Rubbing one out is a great way to help anchor you into the present moment.
FACT: Shirley Jones, TV’s beloved Mrs. Partridge, revealed in her tell-all memoir that her secret for staying so youthful and vibrant is — daily, you guessed it, MASTURBATION!
