There’s a weird idea floating around reddit (and, apparently, various odd backalleys of the internet) that masturbation is bad for you.
I was under the impression that we weren’t getting our science from taste or from outdated superstitions but apparently, yes, some people are.
As much as I would encourage people to have sex in a meaningful relationship, masturbation is pretty awesome for your body, quite the opposite of what these internet murmurers would have the world believe.
I don’t need to remind you of the good that releasing ‘pleasure hormones’ such as serotonin can do for you, and if we’re talking about just the men here for a second (purely because I don’t know if this is the same for women), if you don’t get your little swimmers to leave, you’re body’s going to send them packing for you in the night. Just saying, perhaps you might want to be prepared for a late night clean-up.
Your body produces so much sperm anyway, that the idea of saving them up, if not ridiculous, is questionable. Nothing about pulling a sad face at your boner and putting it away is going to rid you of whatever detriments you believe masturbation is giving you, in fact (as with most of these things) you should probably go to the doctor if you suspect something is wrong with your body.
Because, you know, that’s what they’re for.
I’m claiming to have a wide knowledge range about what lies between your legs, but I am claiming that jerking off is actually good for you. Sorry haters.
