Masturbation is a taboo in our society, especially when it comes to girls. We rarely talk about it, even to our friends or sisters! However, we’re here to help you! Here are 10 things that your vagina would love to tell you about female masturbation… if it could talk. So, listen up girls!
Masturbation can actually help you be happier and sleep better. It’s also known to help you relieve stress. This is all thanks to the oxytocin that is released when you orgasm. You know what’s better than that? It helps you get in tune with your body and accept yourself.
The hormone oxytocin is magical. Not only does it make you feel good, it also releases endorphins, which are natural pain-killing hormones. This is extremely beneficial when you are in pain during periods. I know it may sound gross, but masturbating during periods helps a LOT with those hateful cramps!
If your vagina could talk, it would most definitely tell you that it is not enough to make you orgasm. It needs help from its friends - the clitoris and the breasts to help you get off. So, dear girl, use all the ammunition that nature has given you to help yourself.
This is really really important. Please go and pee as soon as you’re done masturbating. It helps decrease the chances of getting a urinary tract infection by flushing out the bacteria before it causes infection.
It is a myth that fingering or using sex toys during masturbation will make you loose down there. Your vagina is like an elastic band. If we stretch the elastic band and then let go, it returns to its original size. Similarly, when aroused, your pelvic and vaginal muscles relax to allow easier penetration and then return to the normal size. That’s not the equivalent of becoming loose down there!
You can masturbate every day, if that’s what you like and still be a virgin. You lose your virginity when you have sex with another person, which is not the case in masturbation. Also, the concept of virginity is very subjective and varies from person to person. Also, virginity happens to be the most hyped and overrated concept out there so you might as well ignore it!
Another thing that your vagina surely wants to tell you is that masturbation actually will make sex better for you, contrary to the popular belief that it kills your sex drive. One, you’ll know what you like and how you prefer things and in future, you can tell your partner that. And two, if you find it difficult to orgasm with a partner, masturbating will help you loosen up and shed your inhibitions!
You might not be able to give yourself an orgasm the first time around and that’s perfectly okay! Women’s bodies are complicated and it might take a few tries for you to get there. Also, it might happen that once in a while, you don’t orgasm at all and that’s fine too. Sometimes it’s all about the journey and not the destination!
Sex toys like vibrators and dildos can actually make your experience much better than using no toys! Using these toys helps you stimulate your clitoris and have a better masturbating experience than if you don’t!
This applies to both sex with a partner and masturbating. The power of lube must never be underestimated! Lube can help you reach orgasm more easily by making things smoother and easier even if you’re just using your hands and not sex toys!
