Masturbating has occurred across the world for years — so why didn’t we know about this incred benefits before?! Here are five reasons why wanking can make you so much better in bed.

Masturbating means more orgasms for everyone!

In the literal solo sense, because if you are putting in the time with yo self, then you will be clocking up the O numbers — but also, because it is the perfect opportunity to find out what makes your body tick. In the privacy of your own home (and completely free of charge) you can experiment with yourself or with toys, you can watch a lil porn to get the creative juices flowing about what you actually get off on (as well as how you physically do it).

Once you have mastered your ‘how-to-orgasm’ ticklist, you can share this with your partner (or one-time bedroom buddy) to make sure you get your rocks off too. Remember to be super clear with this, perhaps even run them through it before hand, a la Monica in Friends.

Jump on board that self-love train!

Connecting with your body in this kind of intimate way can have a HUGE effect on your self-esteem. Learning about your bod and all the wonderful things it can do and feel is a sure-fire way to boost your feels towards your physical body AND wanking will release a bunch of endorphins meaning you will be riding that natural high all damn day.

Why does this make you better at sex? Well, because when you are feelin’ yourself, you are a million times more confident and will be more likely to throw yourself wholeheartedly into a passion sesh. Gone are those ‘oh god, he is looking at my vagina’ nervous feels, and in their place are those ‘fuck yeah! You look at my magical body and you enjoy it SIR!’ feels.

It is really good exercise for your vag.

As we get older, like the rest of our body, our vagina’s lose their muscle tone. Regular masturbation actually keeps your down-belows fit as orgasms are like a HIIT class for your pelvic floor. Can’t be arsed going to the gym tonight? Swap squats in for a self-love sesh.

A little self-service is a great way to unwind.

Feeling stressed? Masturbating is a brill way to unwind, relax your mind and your muscles. Post-orgasm your body will feel floppy and chilled out. It is a quick-fire way to blow off the stresses of the day and when you aren’t all wound-up about work or personal dramas then you are way more likely to be in the mood for sex.

Ps. It is also a great activity to slip you off into a deep snooze, if you have been struggling to drop off at night.

Masturbating can actually make you healthier.

Another little bonus of wanking is that it literally boosts your immune system. This is because with every orgasm you increase your levels of immunoglobulin (which is an immune system strengthening hero), keeping you fit, healthy and ready to fuck!
