Have you noticed that when you read about masturbation it is usually about male masturbation? Female masturbation is still considered to be a taboo but in the recent years there were several studies that came to a conclusion that female masturbation affects health in a positive way. So besides regular sex, occasional masturbation can be beneficial for women. These are some of effects of female masturbation:
– Cardiovascular system and diabetes
Recent researches have proven that female orgasms strengthen the resistance of female bodies to cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Of course these orgasms can be achieved by having sex with a partner but they can also be achieved with masturbation (especially if the woman doesn’t have a partner).
Masturbation is also very helpful when it comes to infections. It is good for both infections of the cervix and against urinary tract infections. It is a well known fact that masturbation lowers the risk of prostate cancer in men and recent studies have shown that masturbation practiced by women can lower the risk of cervical cancer. Once again the main reason for this is the orgasm itself, because it opens up the uterus and encourages production and distribution of so-called good bacteria in that area. Masturbation can also be useful in cases of urinary tract infections because it eases the pain which is a common thing in these infections. Besides that it helps the process of ejection of old and useless bacteria.
Masturbation, or orgasms to be more precise, strengthens the bottom of the pelvic which is especially important for women who have given birth. Throughout masturbation, and especially when the masturbation gets to the climax (orgasm), comes to muscle contractions and accelerated blood flow. All these things have great effects on the consolidation of the pelvic floor that leads to increased sexual pleasure and desire too.
Masturbation requires some energy and that is why many women (even without doing that intentionally) start masturbating after a long and busy day at work because that gives them a sense of relaxation and it helps them sleep faster and tighter. It is a known fact that masturbation encourages the release of dopamine in the body and those levels are at their maximum before the orgasm occurs. After the orgasm is achieved, oxytocin and endorphins are released that gives a feeling of calmness and warmth in every woman. Because of this feeling it is much easier for the woman to go to bed and sleep without having any problems.
– Relaxation and mood
With the help of the hormones that are released during masturbation, the female body successfully fights the symptoms caused by stress. Hormones that lead to depression and bad moods are replaced with other hormones that bring happiness and calmness. Few researches have proven that masturbation drastically reduces emotional stress and this is very important because this stress is a direct cause of many diseases. Another research has shown that masturbation can remove bad mood instantly.
