19 Health Benefits of Female Masturbation ...


Female masturbation is not generally a subject much discussed or even acknowledged (unlike male masturbation), but there are some excellent health benefits of female masturbation you might like to learn about.

And, no matter that we donโ€™t talk about it much โ€“ female sexual needs and desires are as equally as important as malesโ€™.

Never feel guilty, never need a reason, but if you want to feel just a little bit better about it, here are some great health benefits of female masturbation.

1. Stress Relief

One of the best health benefits of female masturbation is that it is a terrific way of relieving stress and tension.

And why not?

You retreat to your quiet space and for a few minutes (or however long), thereโ€™s no-one intruding in your world, no reminders of all those pressures or things that are closing in on you.

Itโ€™s special time just for yourself.

2. Strength

Female masturbation is also exercise!

Orgasm is a real work out for your pelvic floor.

During the plateau stage of orgasm as the clitoris engorges due to increased blood pressure, your heart rate and respiration increase.

The uterus lifts and contracts, which not only helps sexual satisfaction but strengthens the whole uterine/vaginal muscle area.

3. Sleep Aid

Another of the reasons why female masturbation is healthy is because it can help with sleep.

It fights insomnia in a natural way, through tension and hormonal release.

In anticipation of sexual climax, the โ€œfeel-goodโ€ hormone โ€“ Dopamine โ€“ is released.2

Then, after climax, oxytocin, the calming hormone, is released along with endorphins which provide that lovely afterglow that can lull you into sleep.

4. Mood Enhancer

Do you need any better reasons women should masturbate other than it makes you feel good?

Masturbation is an instant mood enhancer.2

The hormones that are released before, during and after climax โ€“ dopamine and epinephrine โ€“ are natural mood-boosters.
