According to a recent US survey, people within the age group of 18-45 years tend to masturbate at least once every week. When it comes to females, they are very shy, or rather conscious when talking about it. Due to this, there have been some common myths regarding 'doing the deed' and most of them are relatively false.
Most of these myths claim that there are various health hazards caused by masturbation but it is a completely natural process so there's nothing to worry about. Here are some facts you didn't know about female masturbation.
Although, there is no direct connection between marriage and masturbation, but every time you do it, it releases happy hormones called endorphins in your body which gives you a feeling of well-being and increases the attraction towards your partner.
Yes, that is true. Trying to pleasure yourself during a sexual act will get you more aroused and let your partner penetrate you better. Hence, the duration of the act will be longer but the pain will be less for females.
During the period of menopause, women go through a natural decline in hormone levels and the elasticity of the vagina tends to lessen. In such situations, having a regular intercourse with your partner tends to become more painful and less interesting for the female.
Because every time a female masturbates, she gets a shoot of hormones inside her reproductive tract which can lead to increased elasticity and better lubrication of the vagina.
As we all know, there are various sex toys available for men and women. Similarly, women can utilize those toys for masturbation purposes as well.
Although, there are no health hazards with the use of toys, but you could face a complication rarely.
If you've opted for a birth control method such as IUDs or monthly contraceptive pills, masturbation will not cause any trouble with your birth control method.
The functioning of your reproductive organs will not be affected because of masturbation. Your monthly menstrual cycle also won't be disturbed so there's no need to worry about causing harm to your body while masturbation.
