“The only shame in masturbation is not doing it well.”-Sigmund Freud
Masturbation or self-pleasure is a typical, healthy, and natural way of practicing self-care. It is beneficial for both mind and body. People masturbate for different reasons. It allows individuals to relax and understand their body better. Moreover, it can also become an outlet for release tension in the body. However, most people do masturbate just because of how good it feels.
According to a study in 2011, learning self-pleasure is not done from home or school, instead, through friends and social media. Despite the social stigma against doing self-pleasure, both genders come to terms with doing it. However, men recognize and come to terms with doing it as a regular occurrence faster than women.
Another study in 2016 found that men who ejaculate more frequently have a lesser risk of developing prostate cancer by 20%.
