It is perfectly normal to practice a little self care (if you know what I mean, pleasure yourself sexually of course!).

There’s a good chance you became obsessed with masturbating the moment you discovered it and if not, definitely right after you’ve had your first good orgasm.

It probably became all you wanted to do for a little while. And who can blame you?

The whole routine feels great from start to explosive finish!

But in addition to feeling really freakin’ amazing! Masturbation also has heaps of health benefits from reducing your risk of certain diseases to better satisfying your partner during penetrative sex.

Your sexual health is fundamental to your overall health and well-being. That being said, masturbation really is part of a healthy sex life.

I bet you didn’t know all of these health benefits of masturbation! I think it’s time for you to take matters into your own hands…

How Many People Masturbate?

Some people masturbate often, others rarely others don’t masturbate at all. But it’s safe to say that most people masturbate!

Different people masturbate in different ways for different reasons.

Masturbation is a personal choice and there really is no “normal” one way to go about it.

So many people masturbate it’s more likely that you’ll meet someone who does masturbate than someone who doesn't!

Even if they don’t like talking about it, it’s very common for people of any gender and age to masturbate.

In saying this, it’s important to note that everyone masturbates for different reasons.

Is It Alright To Masturbate If You’re In A Relationship?


A lot of people think that masturbation is only something done by those who don’t have a sexual partner.

They couldn’t be any more wrong.

What about mutual masturbation? Or a simulated threesome with a pocket pussy or sex doll?

The fact of the matter is, that lots of people in relationships masturbate.

Masturbation is a common activity, which involves touching the genitals or other sensitive areas of the body for sexual arousal or pleasure.

It’s a great way for you to figure out what gets you ticking sexually, something then you're able to bring to your partner to better convey your needs and wants for more steamy fun-filled bedroom wrestling.

However, you go about it, masturbation definitely is not limited to solo play.

27 Benefits to Masturbating

1) It Can Lower Your Risk Of Prostate Cancer

Regular ejaculation can help lower your prostate cancer risk.

A study from 2004 found that men who ejaculated more than 21 times a month reduced their risk of prostate cancer by roughly 33% compared to guys who only ejaculated 4-7 times a month.

The study was followed up in 2016, where researchers further found that those who ejaculated as little as 8-12 times a month reduce their risk of prostate cancer by 10%.

This research suggests a clear link between sexual activity (including masturbation) and lowered prostate cancer risk.

2) Masturbation Can Help Dull Pain

Feeling sore? Have a headache? Try masturbating.

The dopamine, oxytocin and serotonin hormones released from masturbating all help to relieve pain.

Don’t get too carried away. These hormone releases aren’t going to heal a broken bone or a serious medical condition, but they can help to lower your pain sensitivity.

3) You Become Harder

As you age, you naturally lose muscle tone (and that includes down there).

Regular sex or even masturbation helps to work your pelvic floor muscles to prevent erectile dysfunction and sexual dysfunction and keep your pelvic muscles jacked.

When you orgasm a series of muscle contractions in your pelvic floor muscles occur, in turn, strengthening your muscles further.

Furthermore, masturbation helps to bring oxygen-enriched blood to the smooth muscle of your penis more often, which helps you put forward rock-hard results.

4) Masturbating Helps Relieve Stress

Think about it.

During your last sexual experience (partnered or solo) you probably weren’t thinking about your to-do list or your upcoming speech.

Sexual pleasure forces our brains to tune into our body’s reactions to pleasure rather than being caught up in our thoughts where it’s easy to be preoccupied with stress and other negative thoughts.

As you engage in sexual activity, your body releases endorphins. These endorphins give you a sense of well-being and stress relief.

Furthermore, when you reach orgasm, the release of oxytocin decreases levels of cortisol in your body. Yes, cortisol, the chemical that creates the feeling of stress.

In most cases, this even carries over into partnered sex.

5) You Last Longer During Sex

Often, many men don’t last long in bed simply due to their lack of experience and practice, both with a partner and by themselves.

Fortunately, if you have a penis, masturbating before partnered sex can help you last longer with your partner.

Regularly masturbating has been proven to improve the duration and pleasure of future partnered sessions. Masturbating an hour before a date can even provide enhanced results and control of your member below, doing wonders for your sex life.

Lasting only two minutes? Don’t worry! Most men have shown results of doubling their stamina and number of strokes within a month and the potential to continue to get improve more as time goes on.

Of course, this isn’t a guarantee for everyone as everybody’s bodies are different. You should always keep in mind your refractory period; this is the amount of time your body takes to recover and is then able to take sexual stimulation again.

6) Masturbating May Increase Your Libido

Masturbating could make you want more sex, not less.

Humans like to continue to do things that make them feel good. Due to the surge of feel-good hormones, you get from masturbating this could actually increase your libido, contrary to popular belief.

Just be careful to not take anything, including masturbating, to unhealthy levels.

7) It Boosts Your Immunity

Ejaculating increases levels of hormones that help to regulate and maintain your immune system.

  • Masturbation can produce the right environment for a strengthened immune system.

Additionally, a small study from 2004 showed that men showed higher levels of white blood cells for up to 45 minutes after they had ejaculated.

8) It Counts As A Workout!

A 2013 study found that men burn 4.2 calories and women burn 3.1 calories per minute during sex.

Depending on how much you’re bumping and grinding during your solo sessions, you could be burning similar levels of calories during masturbation.

We can do you one better, why not introduce a sex doll or torso into your solo sessions to help you get in the groove to burn off those excess unwanted calories?

9) It Boosts Your Mood


Masturbating activates the parts of your brain responsible for pleasure whilst lowering the activation of the parts of your brain responsible for fear and anxiety.

Masturbating releases a slew of feel-good hormones, like oxytocin and dopamine, into your body that boosts your satisfaction and mood by activating the reward circuits in your brain.

10) It May Improve Cognitive Function

A 2017 study surveyed a group of people over the age of 50 and then asked them to complete a cognitive assessment. They found that those who had sex (partnered or solo) scored way higher in the memory and verbal fluency tests compared to those who infrequently had sex.

11) You Have Better And Deeper Sleep

Treat your insomnia! Okay, not really.

The sexual response cycle is made up of four stages: desire, arousal, orgasm, and resolution. During the resolution phase, your body's functions (blood pressure, heart rate, breathing, etc.) are returning to normal, after essentially being through a mini workout. It's quite normal to feel a little fatigued and want to fall asleep.

Masturbation, or more so ejaculating, releases hormones like serotonin, oxytocin, and prolactin into your brain, all of which promote feelings of happiness and relaxation. This in turn helps you to fall asleep quicker and promotes a deep sleep.

A 2019 study found that more than half of people who masturbated and orgasmed before going to bed reported a better night’s sleep.

So, if you're tossing and turning in the middle of the night, whipping out your pocket pussy and paying a little visit to your favourite site might be worth the shot.

12) Masturbation Is Safe

Unlike most partnered forms of sexual activity, masturbating can never lead to unwanted pregnancy or sexually transmitted disease.

If you're in a predicament with a partner where safe sex precautions, such as a condom, aren’t available, mutual masturbation is a safe, fun, and extremely hot sexual experience for both parties without any of the unnecessary risks.

13) It Can Increase Your Lifespan

You read that right.

A Welsh study of 1000 men carried out over the course of 20 years found that men that had two or more orgasms per week died at half the rate of men who had fewer orgasms per month.

14) More Pleasurable Partnered Play

Your partner is not a mind reader.

You need to communicate to your partner what makes you tick.

By masturbating you gain that experience and knowledge of your own body, you learn everything that makes you tick. You can then bring this knowledge and share it with your partner.

Not only will you know how to better pleasure yourself, but your partner will also be better able to pleasure you too!

It’s a win-win.

15) It Can Improve Your Skin

Masturbation increases blood flow through your skin, dilating your blood vessels. For some, this can result in slightly rosy cheeks known as post-sex or post-orgasm glow.

But wait, there's more! The oxytocin released from ejaculation can reduce inflammation, making some pimples and rashes less noticeable.

16) It Can Make You Feel More Confident

Masturbating is essential for developing your self-awareness of your own body.

This translates over into the bedroom, but this confidence can also carry over into activities outside the bedroom.

Masturbating can give you the confidence to ask for your wants and needs!

A little self love really can help ones self esteem!

Go get that raise or that girl!

17) Uncover Your Deepest Sexual Fantasies

When you masturbate, you're able to focus on yourself, not somebody else’s pleasure.

You're able to let your mind wander free about your deepest fantasies and sexual desires.

This time can give you a better insight into sexual scenarios that could be played out with a partner in future.

It may even open doors to things that you’ve never thought about prior, like having a threesome perhaps? You could always practice this first with a partner and a pocket pussy if needed.

18) It Better Educates You Of Your Own Body

You might think you're pretty well acquainted with your own body, and if you really think about it you’ve only developed this knowledge from exploring and masturbating throughout the years, am I right?

Masturbation is a way to get in touch with your body.

Furthermore, it’s always good to try new things whether this is new foods or sexual techniques.

It’s often helpful to give yourself refresher courses in what you like by trying new toys and techniques.

Next time you go for a solo session try going beyond just stroking your shaft. Explore applying pleasure balls, perineum, and even your penis head to discover any new pleasure points.

19) You Do NOT Need To Set The Mood

Turn off the lights?

Light a candle?


The beauty of masturbating is that you don’t have to set the mood or impress anyone but yourself. That means you can do it whichever and however way you feel is most pleasurable for you!

Solo play allows you to place your full attention on yourself and your needs and desires, without having to worry about anyone else.

20) It Improves Your Heart Health

Myth: rigorous sex can increase your risk of heart attacks, strokes and type 2 diabetes.

Truth: Regular sex (that includes self pleasure) can help to reduce your chances of cardiovascular disease, strokes, and type 2 diabetes.

A study from Massachusetts Aging Study found that men who had sex less than twice a month were 45% more likely to die from cardiovascular disease than those who orgasmed twice or more a week.

So next time you decide to stay home, tell your mates it’s for your own health. Technically, you won’t be lying!

21) Masturbating Helps Relieve Sexual Tension

Haven’t had sex in a while?

Sexual tension starting to pile up?

It might be smart to take a little time off to knock one out.

Masturbating can be a good way to release sexual tension to clear your mind to focus on more important tasks at hand.

22) It Can Relieve Your Cravings

As previously mentioned, masturbating can lead to decreased levels of cortisol levels.

This also helps to cut food cravings brought on by stress.

These emotionally triggered cravings are usually for sugary, fatty or carby foods that often provide temporary short-term relief but cause longer-term damage to your body.

23) Be More Productive

Masturbation can be a great way to clear your mind and take a break between tasks. A quick rub can help you relax, clear your mind, and do wonders for your mental health in between those long work or study sessions. 

24) If You Are Having Partner Issues

Is your partner not in the mood?

Is there a physical limitation, are you in a long-distance relationship?

Masturbating is a common solution for when your partner “doesn’t feel like it” or isn’t “in the mood” … but you are.

Mutual masturbation is amazing for anyone who’s in a long-distance relationship. This way both parties can have an intimate and physical stimulating sexual session with someone who might be 100s of kilometers away!

25) It Can Warm You Up

If you’re feeling a little chilly from these cold winter nights, whacking one out actually could help to warm you up a little.

Wrap yourself up in your favourite blanket, pull out your pocket pussy and put on your favourite video.

You’ll find that as you go on, you’ll slowly start to warm up from the increased blood flow around your body.

Though, I wouldn’t rely on this technique to survive freezing temperatures!

26) Pleasure Is Extremely Accessible

With the huge range of affordable men’s sex toys available to everyone around the world nowadays you really are spoilt for choice when it comes to your pleasure.

From the beloved pocket pussy to sex torsos to life-sized sex dolls, you're sure to find what fits your preference without making as much as a dent in your wallet.

27) It Simply Feels Good

How often do you allow yourself to do something just for pleasure?

Not to advance your career or earn more money but just for pure pleasure?

Answer: not often enough.

Masturbating is one of those things that you mainly do for the sexual pleasure it brings. Not for anything or anyone else. You do it purely for your pleasure because, simply, it feels great!

Just be careful not to rely on masturbation as an escape from your personal issues, because it’s through that reliance that an unhealthy addiction can form.

But the occasional solo roll is very healthy and can easily help to make a bad day a little bit brighter.

Final Thoughts

No matter the reason why you masturbate, what really matters is that you are masturbating.

Besides feeling freakin' amazing, masturbation also has several health benefits, from reducing stress levels to lowering your risk of prostate cancer to boosting your sexual satisfaction during sex. 

There are no negative effects to solo sex but in fact a lot of upsides! So, you really have no reason not to do it. I just can't stress enough how beneficial it is.
