Why masturbation is good for you
1. Masturbation helps prevent cervical infections
Masturbation has been found to help reduce the risk of prostate cancer in men, and now studies are finding that female masturbation can help protect against cervical infections and UTIs as is flushes out bad bacteria.
2. Better cardiovascular health
Women who have more orgasms – whether with a partner or not – have been shown to have a greater resistance to heart disease and type-2 diabetes.
3. Relieves depression and stress
Levels of mood-boasting dopamine and epinephrine rises in the body when aroused. Also taking sexual time for yourself has been shown to alleviate emotional stress.
