Need some masturbation encouragement? Most young men don't, but masturbation remains a taboo subject in our society. The fact is that masturbation is a perfectly healthy and pleasurable activity when not done excessively. Keep reading for the top three reasons to masturbate regularly.
- Masturbation is healthy. A team of Australian scientists conducted a study on the relationship between the average number of times a man ejaculated weekly and his chances of developing prostate cancer, one of the most common cancers in men. Their findings? Men who ejaculated more than five times weekly were thirty three percent less likely to develop prostate cancer. It seems that certain carcinogens can build up in the seminal glands, and so ejaculating regularly helps clear them out of your system.
- Masturbation relieves stress. In addition to lowing your risk of cancer, masturbation can also lower your stress levels. Orgasms feel good because they flood your system with endorphins, which are the chemicals your body makes to produce feeling of pleasure and happiness. The relief of tension that comes with an orgasm can lower your stress levels. It probably isn't the only thing you should do to relieve yourself of stress, but it certainly can help.
- Masturbation can give you insights into your body and your sexuality. Masturbation can teach young men to recognize the signs of an impending orgasm, and thus can be a tool for learning how to avoid premature ejaculation. Masturbation can also teach you about your own sexuality. Sometimes we don't always consciously recognize the things that turn us on, but you can bet that when you're laying in bed and fantasizing, your turn ons will come to mind. Pay attention to the patterns that repeat themselves, and use them to supercharge your sex life.
