When do you start to masturbate?

Each one of us may have already explored masturbation and perhaps his first masturbation was in a surprising way. Indeed, it is in the womb that the fetus would explore masturbation for the first time. Then the child discovers as it goes along that certain practices are pleasant, and then discovers a pleasure in doing it. If almost all men say they have already practiced it, this figure is only 60% for women. This can be explained by persistent taboos... Indeed, female masturbation is still very taboo in our society and suffers from many prejudices.

However, masturbation is normal, diverse and is even considered in sexology as having an importance in the construction and structuring of sexuality. The practice of masturbation would present many physical and psychological benefits.

What are the benefits of masturbation?

On a psychological level, masturbation fights against stress and promotes sleep.

Indeed, masturbation as well as sexual intercourse promote the production of endorphins by the brain. These promote muscle relaxation, calm and appeasement.

This production of endorphins also acts as a very good painkiller, in particular against migraines and menstrual cramps. But that's not all, masturbation would allow to have a more positive image of its body, and thus a greater self-esteem and a better self-confidence.

On the physical side, masturbation is a good activity for the heart because it accelerates the heartbeat and makes it work while strengthening it. Moreover, in men, it would prevent prostate cancer.
