When talking about masturbation, it involves sexually arousing yourself by touching your genitals. Masturbation is common among men and women and you can masturbate yourself or someone else.
Aside from the pleasure it provides, masturbation can assist you in having a better understanding of what you like and dislike about sex. Masturbation enables men to have control over their orgasm while on the other hand women can discover what helps them to achieve orgasm. A lot of couples masturbate together and consider it a very pleasant part of their relationship. Others do not do it and that’s good: the choice of masturbating is considered to be personal.
There is no good or bad way to masturbate. The normal way of masturbating in men is by rubbing their penis. While touching and stroking of the clitoris and the area around the vagina is the way by which women masturbate. The clitoris is a small very sensitive and touching and when it is stimulated, it can provide a strong feeling of sexual pleasure. Most women need clitoris stimulation to orgasm during sex or masturbation.
Aside from feelings of sexual pleasure, masturbation results in ejaculation. Ejaculation is common among men and it occurs when a sperm comes from a penis when a man has an orgasm. Usually about 5 ml of fluid, but there may be more, especially if a man has not ejaculated for a while. Women can also ejaculate fluids, but this is much less common than in men.
It has been shown that masturbation does not cause any arm. It does not cause blindness, dementia or acne and does not grow hair on the palms. There is no risk of pregnancy or sexually transmitted infections (STI) when you masturbate alone.
Care must be taken as there is a risk of infection if you use sex toys during masturbation, and if someone with STI uses it before you. Any object used in sex can be referred to as a sex toy, whether it is designed for that purpose or not. It is important to keep sexual toys clean. If you share sex toys with others, clean them between each use and, if possible, give them a new condom each time.
Masturbation will not affect the ability of a man to produce sperm. Men will not run short of sperm, this is because sperm is produced continuously in the body. After a man’s ejaculation, it will take some time before he can ejaculate again. This is normal and does not indicate that the sperm of the man has a problem.
Masturbation is harmless, but in the event that you overdo it, it might hurt your genitals. If men often do it in a very short time, they may have a slightly alarming swelling of the penis, called edema, which occur as a result of fluid in the tissue. The swelling disappears for a day or two. However, if you feel the need to masturbate is affecting your daily life, talking to your doctor may be helpful.
