Own Your Own Orgasm
The physical benefits of masturbation for women have been well documented in research: it is great for relaxation, can help you sleep and can even assist with period pain.
However, more importantly, masturbation is actually empowering, according to Christina Spaccavento, a leading sex therapist and ambassador for My Little Black Book.
“Masturbation is incredibly empowering because it helps us take control of our sexuality. You’re not leaving it up to someone else to fulfil your needs,” she explains.
“Masturbation also helps you get comfortable with your body, can help build self-confidence, sexual confidence and self-esteem, all the building blocks of self-love.”
“It’s important to masturbate so you can get to know your body and get comfortable with it, its sensations, feel, look and its juices. Masturbation helps you connect with all those erogenous areas of your body, and helps you know what you like and how you like it – and it makes you aware of what you don’t like.”
However, according to a recent survey conducted by My Little Black Book, 11% of Australian women never masturbate.
Still not convinced? Well, here are Top five Reasons for Women to #OwnYourO todayon International Female Orgasm Day!
- Masturbation helps you relax
During sex and orgasm, feel good hormones and chemicals that help us to experience relaxation are released in the body. Masturbation is simply sex with yourself, so by masturbating we are able to experience the same relaxing and calming effects as we do when we have sex with someone else!
- Masturbation can assist with period pain
For some women, it has been noted that the rhythmic contractions of the uterus during orgasm can assist with period pain.
- Masturbation boosts your self-esteem
Masturbation helps you to become comfortable with your body, can help build self-confidence, sexual confidence and self-esteem, all the building blocks of self-love.
- Masturbation improves your relationship
Masturbation gives you the opportunity to connect with your body and understand exactly what it is that you like. By doing this, you’re in a better space to communicate your sexual needs to a partner. Research has shown that women who can communicate with their partner, both about sexual and non-sexual matters, tend to have better relationships.
- Masturbation is empowering
Masturbation is incredibly empowering because it helps women take control of their sexuality; you’re the one taking charge rather than leaving it up to someone else to fulfil your needs.
