It’s healthy, pleasurable, natural, and fun. So why is female masturbation still such a taboo subject? It’s time to dispel the myths and get down to basics. We should all be masturbating.
First, there’s no “right” way to do it, and you’re not doing it wrong. It’s all normal. Whether you like to use your hands, pillows, running water, or toys—it’s normal. Whether you do it once a week, once a day, or three times a day—normal.
Second, it’s good for you. “Masturbation releases stress and anxiety,” says Leah Millheiser, M.D., clinical assistant professor and director of female sexual medicine at Stanford University Medical Center. “We know that you get a total body relaxation after orgasm, which is great for someone who is tense. Masturbation also increases blood flow to the genitals which is important because blood flow keeps the vagina healthy.”
Plus, if you’re in a relationship, masturbating on your own can help you orgasm during sex, and it helps you form a closer relationship with your partner. “When a woman masturbates and has an orgasm, it releases oxytocin, a powerful hormone, which makes a woman want to bond more with her partner,” Millheiser says. “We also know that people who don’t masturbate are more likely to have difficulty reaching orgasm with a partner.”
Whether you’re a beginner who’s just starting to explore your body or an OG looking for more, Millheiser offers some tips and tricks on how to take your usual masturbation game to the next level. You’re only a week (err...an hour?) away from the best orgasm of your life.
Up for the challenge? Here’s a five-day exploration guide that will leave you begging for more.
