Guys do it so why shouldn't you?

One of the most important philosophies I live by, and am keen to teach, is that you have to learn to love yourself first, before you can expect anyone else to. Beauty really does come from within, and a confident, self-assured person exudes powers of attraction a thousand times more fatal than someone who is yet to know themselves.

It’s very important to put aside some 'me' time, to concentrate on attending to your individual needs, by self-pleasuring. Regardless of whether you're in a solid relationship, are happily single, or are on the lookout for new excitement, it's important to reacquaint yourself with your own body from time to time.

Exploring what turns you on, experimenting with different toys, and really using your imagination can have a significant impact, not just on your love life but on you as a person. 

As one of the best ways to explore and get to know your own body, masturbation is one of life's essential pleasures. It gives us not only a quick-fix in the orgasm department, but it's also a vital way for both singles and couples to find out what gets you off.

Masturbation shouldn't just be about having a quickie in the bathroom or underneath the sheets; it can be so much more than that. Whether you're working solo, or want to get your hands on a loved one, exploring different ways of exciting yourself (and each other), can have all kinds of benefits from achieving a better understanding of how your body works to getting rid of previously-held inhibitions, taboos and other social barriers that society still insists on putting in our way.

Still not convinced? Here are two great reasons to consider self-loving.

1. Masturbation is good for you!

Masturbation helps prevent cervical infections and helps relieve urinary tract infections and is associated with improved cardiovascular health and lower risk of type-2 diabetes. Having trouble sleeping? Yep, masturbation can help work against insomnia naturally, through hormonal and tension release. Frequent self-pleasurers will be in a better mood and cope with stress better.

2.  You'll have seriously stronger orgasms.

The more you practice solo sex (and do you Kegel exercises), the more intense your orgasms will be. The practical aspect of strengthening your PC (pubococcygeus) muscles through Kegel exercises is that you'll recover from childbirth faster and prevent incontinence. The sexy side of it is that you'll have stronger orgasmic contractions paired with masturbation, women who have difficulty climaxing may find it easier.
