Sex can take many different forms, from straight man-on-woman in the missionary pose to hookups found on BBW and transgender dating sites that turn into full-blown BDSM sessions. Still, there is something that we all share, that everybody partakes in and that has been around since the beginning of mankind – masturbation.
Although it’s a common part of everyone’s life (whether you want to admit it or not), there are certain people out there that will tell you it’s not okay and not healthy to masturbate at all. And while that’s completely bogus, let’s take a look at the idea of day-to-day masturbation and whether it has any negative effects on your life.
Benefits and Advantages
First and foremost, let’s assess this situation from a physical point of view. Masturbating every day may seem like a tedious task to some, but if you ask those who do practice it, you’ll notice that they don’t feel like they have an obligation or chore that they have to fulfill daily.
It’s very well documented that masturbation is healthy for both men and women. Physically, it helps keep our reproduction organs healthy, in good shape and always ready for action, and psychologically, it’s a pretty good way to relieve stress and figure out your own sexuality.
Many sex experts out there say that solo time is a crucial part of any relationship. This is mostly because it’s a perfect way for you to learn about your body, your erogenous zones, what turns you on the most and so on, which can later be applied to having sexy time with your partner.
So far, we couldn’t find any downsides to masturbation, at least in the psychological and physical sense. The only problem that may come from it is actually caused by ourselves – or rather how we implement masturbation into our everyday lives.
Medically, there’s absolutely nothing wrong and there are no risks posed by day-to-day masturbation. However, if you can’t properly introduce this wonderful activity into your daily schedule, you may run into some problems in other fields.
A good example of this would be running late for work because you simply had to masturbate right this moment. Another scenario would be actively avoiding sex with your partner because going downtown by yourself feels so good.
Bottom line, it’s all about the way we handle it. Too much of anything is never good, but in this case, it’s not because of the nature of masturbation.
There are a lot of people out there (especially men) that have masturbation sessions every day or at least almost every day and they can function just like any other human out there. If you can find a way to insert masturbation into your everyday life so that it doesn’t come into conflict with your other activities or duties, then by all means – go for it.
