Some people like to tell you that masturbation is an unsavory habit. These moralistic folk tell you about hairy palms, blindness, and a lifetime of eternal damnation. This of course hasn’t stopped men from masturbating, but it has made some of them feel guilty about it. Well, feel guilty no more because the truth is about to come out; masturbation has a lot of health benefits, and no matter what some prude might think, it’s an important part of being a man. So put that shame to rest because you’re about to learn six reasons why masturbation is healthy for you!
It relieves stress.
Sometimes frustration builds up inside of you. Whether life has got you down, or you’re sexually pent up, the stress inside can cause all kinds of problems. Why not find a healthy outlet for that stress? Enter masturbation. The physical act itself provides exertion, and the act of orgasm provides stress relief. Endorphins are released into the brain, elevating the mood and lowering stress. Avoid a stress-related heart attack and get to know yourself a little better the next time that you’re angry.
It helps lower the risk of prostate cancer.
Turns out, climaxing regularly helps clean out your plumbing, and it helps keep your prostate in tip-top shape. Men over 40 know that prostate cancer is among the leading causes of death in men, so it’s important to do everything you can to keep your prostate humming along. Do your prostate a favor, and go ahead and masturbate. Maybe if previous generations hadn’t been so Puritanical, prostate cancer rates would be lower.
It increases sexual stamina.
You hear women complain about it all the time: premature ejaculation. We men get revved up quick, and sometimes we can red-line before a woman has even gotten her motor running. That’s why it’s important to run a few “practice laps” in order to make sure that your gear is in top condition before the rubber hits the road. Masturbation will turn your drag race into the Dayton 500 in no time.
