The current Corona Crisis has affected all of us – physically, mentally, and financially. We are all feeling more stressed as we worry about our health, the health of our loved ones, our paychecks and our future. Now, more than ever, is the time to practice good health habits. In addition to washing your hands regularly – for good health you should also be masturbating regularly.
Masturbation Releases Feel Good Chemicals
Dopamine is a chemical your body naturally releases that puts you in a good mood and makes you feel good. Oxytocin is a chemical your body releases which lowers your cortisol. Cortisol is a stress hormone. When you orgasm your body releases dopamine to feel good and oxytocin to lower your stress – exactly what you need to combat the stress and anxiety you may feel right now!
Masturbation Improves Sleep
If stress and anxiety is keeping you up at night, masturbation is a sure fire way to induce sleep. Of course all of our minds are racing at night, making sweet dreams hard to come by. Orgasms release prolactin in addition to oxytocin which can act like a sedative to make you feel relaxed and sleepy. A good night’s sleep can also improve your libido!
Masturbation Reduces Physical Pain
In addition to mental stress, some of us may be suffering from physical pain. If we’re working harder in our industry, putting in long hours or late nights our bodies may feel physical pain. Even if we’re working from home, working at a different desk (or on the couch!) can result in back pain or if we’re spending hours on new tasks like gardening it can also bring about new aches. But having an orgasm releases endorphins which have pain killing properties.
Self Love is Self Care
We are all being told to take better care of ourselves. It’s like being in an airplane crash – take care of yourself first and then your loved ones. Masturbation will improve your body image and your self esteem so you’ll just feel more positive.
Change Your Focus
Whether you’re turning on the TV or just surfing social media, coronavirus is all anyone can talk about. Masturbation allows you, for just a few minutes, to focus on something else. If your mind won’t relax enough to let you delve into a good book or movie, masturbation may be your best chance for release.
