Does Coronavirus can make it seem like there’s a lot more time on your hands? Perhaps some of that time should be spent on self-love and the benefits that masturbation can provide.
In addition to helping relieve the stress that everyone is feeling right now, regular masturbation can help strengthen muscles in your pelvic floor. So, if you’re feeling a bit guilty about self-pleasure, which many women do, focus on the beneficial aspects of intimate exercise.
Kegel Exercise = Stronger Pelvic Floor & Better Orgasms
The first benefit that Kegel exercises do is draw additional blood flow to your pelvic floor. Healthy blood flow and circulation helps increase sensitivity and arousal, so practicing pelvic floor exercises will help prepare your body for sex play.
Kegel exercises also tone and strengthen your pelvic floor muscles, which makes them healthier, and can make sex play more enjoyable due to enhanced sensations. Plus, being able to squeeze your partner tighter during sex play also helps heighten their experience as well.
As for better orgasms, strengthening your pelvic floor helps tighten your PC muscle (pubococcygeus muscle), which is one of the muscles that voluntarily contracts during orgasm. Since your PC muscle will contract on its own during orgasm, making sure that it’s well toned will make it easier for your body to achieve a stronger orgasm.
Use this time in isolation to learn more about Your Body
Explore your body to learn if you have other erogenous zones or sensitive areas that aren’t the usual places. The inside crook of an elbow can be a popular erogenous zone that not many people know about. Use warmth and coolness to discover how your body reacts to temperature play with massage stones and glass massagers. Now can also be a great time to learn more of your own sexual likes and dislikes so that you can be more intimately confident in your next relationship or when you reconnect with your partner after isolation.
For those of you who are ready to take self-love to the next level, I would suggest trying new techniques, such as teaching yourself how to have multiple orgasms.
But watch out, this much pleasure can give some women, including myself, a stomachache.
After experiencing an orgasm, women’s bodies are perfectly capable of having a second orgasm within a minute or two of the first one.
Most often the easiest way to enjoy a second, third or fourth orgasm consecutively is to use a different type of stimulation from the first orgasm. So, if the first orgasm is via your hands, use a pleasure product to stimulate to the next orgasm(s), which will allow your body to respond quickly to this new sensation. A rocking motion where your hips are mimicking a thrusting motion can also help lead to additional orgasms.
Masturbation can limit Yeast Infections & UTI's
If your own personal health in foremost in your mind, studies have shown that women who masturbate regularly build-up a natural resistance to yeast infections. Regular masturbation can also protect against urinary tract infections by keeping the vaginal canal lubricated, thereby helping flush out any unhealthy bacteria.
Masturbation, especially for women globally, is growing so much in popularity that the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education carried out a poll to create a new word to specifically describe female masturbation. After receiving over 1,200 suggestions, Klittra became the winner. Klittra is a combination of clitoris and glitter.
ACTION: Take time and give yourself permission to enjoy a little self-pleasure. Take notice of how it makes you feel - calm, happy, relaxed? Make a point to connect with the feelings that masturbation provides to you.
Today and every day, be good to yourself!™
