OMG! …You, Masturbate??
“80-90 % of men masturbate, 65-70% of women masturbate and the rest lie.”
—Former Surgeon General of the United States.
I grew up hearing that masturbating was a sin; That I would be damned to the fiery pits of hell if the idea dared so much as drift through my mind. As a teen, when it did occasionally surface in my thoughts, I would dismiss it as quickly as it came, then pray for forgiveness and mercy. (LOL)… true story.
As a young woman, one of my girlfriend’s introduced me to a very cute, pink, vibrating thing-a-ma-jiggy. A dildo; vibrator, artificial penis, johnson–barI, or whatever you choose to call it. I finally gave in to my pervasive curiosity, and ran the risk of being struck down by lightening during the condemned, and immoral act of using it on myself.
Was it worth it? Hella Yeah!
I won’t lie; after it was all said and done…I had this overwhelming sense of uneasiness…shame maybe? But at least I didn’t get struck down by lightning!
My attitude has changed (I’ll pet my bunny shamelessly) and so has society. Over the last two decades, masturbation has become less and less stigmatized and more and more idealized. After several discussions on the topic I’ve come to realize that if anything, it’s a subject that has always been more considered taboo-more often by women as opposed to men. 100% of all the men I have had the pleasure of discussing the subject with have declared masturbation to be mouth-wateringly acceptable in their point of view, and especially—within their view.
All kidding aside; besides a blessed experience, everyone deserves to feel whether in a relationship or not, here is a list of 10 amazing things masturbation can do to immediately enhance your health and wellness:

- Decrease your risk of cervical cancer
- Cure a urinary tract infection
- Boosts your immune system
- Ease menopause issues

- I’ll throw in one extra: Zero chance of an STD!
