Women that love to masturbate do so for a variety of reasons. They might want to explore their sexual preferences and desires, or they may use it as a way to relieve stress.
Masturbation is all about stimulating erogenous zones, which can lead to orgasm. During orgasm, women feel a rush of pleasure and relaxation.
1. It’s a great way to relax
Masturbation is a great way to relax, and it can help improve your sleep. It increases blood flow, reduces stress, and releases endorphin. It can also be a great way to relieve boredom and loneliness.
Many people with vaginas struggle with low libido, and masturbation can be an excellent way to get in touch with your sexuality and figure out what turns you on. It’s also a great way to learn what kind of pressures, intensities, and strokes make you happy.
If you’re in a relationship, try asking your partner to perform masturbation with you during foreplay or intercourse. It’ll help you feel more comfortable and increase your chances of a deeper connection.
However, it’s important to note that masturbation can cause anxiety in some people. If you’re experiencing anxiety, it might be helpful to talk to a therapist. They can help you identify the source of your anxiety and teach you coping skills to manage it. They can also help you find ways to practice masturbation safely. For example, if you’re scared that someone will walk in on you, try using a private room or practicing with a partner first.
2. It’s a great way to learn about your body
Whether you’re single, sex-curious and exploring your sexuality solo or you’re in a monogamous relationship and enjoying some coveted alone time, masturbation can help you learn more about what makes you tick. “Masturbation helps us tune into our bodies and what feels good for us,” double board certified OB/GYN Renee Wellenstein tells SELF. “That way, when we do engage in sex, we have a better understanding of what our partners like and want.”
As one study suggests, masturbation releases oxytocin, endorphins and testosterone that stimulate the brain and boost mood. It also increases the production of prolactin, which is a hormone that regulates your immune system.
Try exploring different positions that can bring new sensations and intensify orgasms, such as stroking the nipples, chest, neck, breasts and thighs. You can even experiment with vibrating sex toys or play around with different pressure points, such as fluttering the fingers, pinching or slapping. Taking care of yourself while you masturbate is also important, so make sure to wear comfortable clothes and keep your sessions private. Having a clean, hygienic bathroom is a must.
3. It’s a great way to increase your libido
There are many myths surrounding masturbation, but it is actually a safe and natural way to explore the body, feel pleasure, and release sexual tension. It can also help to improve sleep quality and increase mood, as well as boost overall health.
Masturbation can also be a great way to learn about your own sensual needs, which can then be communicated to your partner. It can also be used as a tool to help with sexual dysfunctions such as not reaching orgasm or early ejaculation in men.
For women, masturbation can be a way to stimulate their own genitalia, which may lead to orgasm and increased libido. The key is to make sure that you are using a clean and safe method of masturbation, which should not cause any discomfort or pain. In addition, it’s important to take the time to relax before masturbating, such as by listening to sensual music or reading erotica. This will help to ensure that you are as receptive as possible to your sexual pleasures. This will also help you get the most out of your masturbation sessions and avoid any uncomfortable side effects such as rashes or bruising.
4. It’s a great way to get out of a rut
For those that have masturbated for a long time, it can be easy to fall into a rut. One way to get out of this is by playing around with technique. Another is by adding lube, which makes it easier to reach orgasms. Lastly, it can help to have a sexual fantasy or two on hand during masturbation to turn you on.
This will help to remind you that masturbation isn’t just about getting to orgasm, but that it’s also about pleasure itself. Remember, pleasure is subjective and what feels good to you may be different from your best friend. Knowing your preferences can also make it easier to communicate them to a partner during sex.
So, if you’re looking for some ways to boost your libido or just want to try something new, give masturbation a go! It’s a safe, self-pampering activity that can have a huge impact on your intimacy and your confidence. Plus, it’s just plain fun! And it’s a great way to get out of a rut. So go ahead, kick back, touch yourself, and bust out that sex toy.
5. It’s a great way to build intimacy
Whether you’re masturbating alone or with a partner, incorporating sex toys is a great way to enhance your pleasure. However, it’s important to make sure the sex toys you use are body safe and clean.
Masturbation is also a great way to build intimacy with your sexual partner. Often, women who masturbate report that their sexual experiences with their partners are more pleasurable than they would have been without masturbation. This is likely because masturbation allows them to build up sexual tension before they engage in physical activity with their partner.
Masturbation is a normal and healthy part of human sexuality, but it can still be difficult for some people to discuss. For many, it raises issues of guilt and shame, especially when they feel that their masturbation is against their religious beliefs or values. In these cases, therapy can help to address these concerns and teach individuals how to cope with their feelings of guilt or shame. In addition, therapy can help individuals find ways to replace their masturbation with other activities that are more fulfilling and satisfying.
