Breaking the Taboo: The Health Benefits and Importance of Masturbation

The topic of masturbation has long been plagued by misinformation and myths (let’s not even get started on the claim that it’s only for single people). It’s about time we set the record straight and give masturbation the recognition it deserves.

Is excessive masturbation linked to blindness? Only if you’re foolish enough to stare directly at the sun while doing it. Can it cause erectile dysfunction? No, but keeping your phone in your front pocket for extended periods might. Does masturbation have any health benefits? That’s what we’re here to discuss. Good news for men: Masturbation can lead to better sleep, reduced stress, and increased self-esteem by improving body image perception. Essentially, you can reap the same benefits as lifting weights or running on a treadmill, without the need for a gym membership or dealing with sore muscles the next day.

A study conducted by TENGA, a toy company, revealed that frequent masturbation can make you a better lover and enhance your orgasms. After studying the masturbation habits of 2,000 men, the research showed that men who masturbate weekly are 10% more confident in their sexual performance compared to those who rarely engage in self-pleasure.

Furthermore, 12% of men who masturbate experience higher quality orgasms, and 6% feel more satisfied with their body. The key takeaway here is that pleasuring yourself more often or finding a partner who does can greatly benefit your sexual experiences.

Alix Fox, a sex and relationship ambassador for Tenga, firmly believes that men who regularly engage in self-pleasure and appreciate their bodies are more likely to feel confident and at ease when engaging in sexual activities with a partner. The more men explore their own bodies, the more likely they are to bring that liberated sense of adventure and excitement to their relationships.

Believe it or not, touching yourself could actually save your life. Engaging in self-pleasure, getting to know your own body, and feeling comfortable discussing it openly can genuinely be a lifesaver.

A recent survey found that 60% of men wouldn’t recognize the signs of a potentially cancerous lump in their testicles. Even more concerning, 82% admitted to feeling uncomfortable discussing genital issues with their general practitioners.

As Alix points out, men’s lives are at stake because symptoms of testicular cancer often go unnoticed or are not addressed promptly. Men’s worries or embarrassment about discussing their bodies, fueled by the taboo surrounding masturbation, hinder their ability to seek help in such situations.

For the sake of men’s health and the enjoyment of a fulfilling sex life for everyone, it’s crucial to elevate the conversation around masturbation and encourage men to embrace it without shame.
