6 Reasons Why Masturbation Is Actually Good for Men

6 Reasons Why Masturbation Is Actually Good for Men

There has always been a stigma surrounding masturbation. For the longest time it was one of the biggest taboos, topics that are not widely and openly discussed. Despite it being normal and despite the fact that everyone does it, it is still being treated as something vulgar, funny, or sensitive to talk to.

Things will probably not change much in the future, but that does not mean that masturbation has to be an unfamiliar and foreign thing. For men, it is actually a very healthy thing and it can help in many ways. In this article we talk about reasons that make masturbation good for men. Read on to learn more and check out

1. Lowers the Risk of Prostate Cancer


Numerous studies over the years have shown that men who ejaculate at least 21 times per month reduce the risk of developing prostate cancer by a whopping 33%. This is in comparison to the guys who do it only 4 to 7 times per month.

Ejaculating between 8 and 12 times in 30 days reduced the risk of this cancer by 10%. Masturbation is a more likely way to ejaculate than waiting to be intimate with your significant other, especially if you want to reach a certain number and help your health.

2. It Makes You Last Longer in Bed

Men who struggle with premature ejaculation or who simply want to last longer while they have sex need to masturbate more. Having practiced and getting your body used to certain sensations makes every man a better lover.

Extending your sessions is easily achieved if you masturbate on a regular basis. Also, masturbating during the day when you know you will have sex in the evening will certainly make you last longer in bed.

3. It Is an Immunity Booster


As unlikely as it may seem, masturbation is also good because it increases the levels of cortisol, a stress hormone that helps us regulate the immune system. The feeling we have and the processes that take place in the body during masturbation produce the right conditions and environment for a healthier immune system.

4. Mood Booster

This one is a no-brainer really. Doing it makes us feel good and fulfilled, and sometimes that is all the reason you need to do something. If it is pleasurable and so easy to do, why not do it regularly, especially when you lack a partner to enjoy the night with?

5. It Helps with Falling Asleep


There is a good reason why many men masturbate right before going to bed. It is because it improves the quality of sleep since serotonin and oxytocin are released into the brain, the “feel good” hormones that are linked to relaxation and happiness.

The body enters a happier and more relaxed state after ejaculation, resulting in an easier time falling asleep. If you have problems falling asleep on time, try masturbating before showering (or during the shower) and see what happens.

6. Get to Know Your Body

Masturbation also helps you learn things about yourself, like what you enjoy the most in terms of physical pleasure during sex. It is a great way to get to know your feelings and what makes you the most excited and aroused. Then when you are intimate with someone you will know exactly what to go (or ask) for in order to reach that feeling.
