Masturbation has often been considered a taboo topic and female masturbation in particular has always been regarded as unethical and immoral. But, the real truth is that female masturbation does have a number of health benefits. So, here are a few reasons as to why women need to masturbate more often.


Masturbation will increase your self-esteem
Masturbation gives you a sense of freedom that makes you feel good about yourself. Masturbating to give yourself an orgasm will help you feel in control of your body, thereby also increasing your body image. Overall, it can also help build self-esteem and sexual confidence.

Helps you understand your body and pressure points better

Masturbating allows your mind to wander into realms and fantasies that you’d otherwise shun away. This will help you learn about what turns you on. It will also help you understand your body’s needs and pressure points, which trigger intense sensations.

Boosts mental health

Studies have revealed that masturbation can help relieve tension and stress. The chemicals released during this pleasurable activity helps heal depression naturally. Masturbation also triggers the release of hormones, dopamine and epinephrine that help enhance one's mood.

Boosts sexual health
During masturbation, a woman works out her pelvic region which causes the uterus to contract and lift throughout the act. This activity strengthens the vaginal muscle. It also helps keep the vagina lubricated thus flushing out bad bacteria that could cause infections.

Helps you sleep

Masturbation also acts as a natural remedy for a good night’s sleep. When you masturbate, there are a number of hormonal releases that help calm you down and can induce sleep.
