Deeper sleep

One of the first benefits of female masturbation is that it helps you sleep in a much deeper and restful way. So if you suffer from insomnia or find it hard to fall asleep the best thing is to masturbate and see how fast you can fall sleep and, above all, how well you get to rest.

The reason this happens is because when we masturbate, our body releases endorphins, i.e. the hormones that give us a sense of pleasure and well-being. For this reason, after masturbation or orgasm, people usually stay in peaceful sleep.

Be full of optimism

Masturbating also makes you feel at your best and full of optimism. Why? It is due to the same reason as we mentioned earlier: endorphins. Thanks to masturbation two types of hormones called "dopamine" and "oxytocin" are released; which are those that produce a feeling of comfort and pleasure just like when we eat something we love or when we drink alcohol. This is why it helps your self esteem and being in a better mood.

Stronger muscles

Female masturbation also makes your vaginal muscles stronger and toned. When we make love, we are also strengthening our body and doing exercise since we have to work many muscles to make sexual movements. And the same thing happens with masturbation since our pelvic and anal muscles are stimulated and work to reach the pleasure of orgasm. It won't favor the pelvic walls as much as kegel exercises do, but it is still pretty useful.

Knowing your body

One of the best benefits of female masturbation is found in how women can find their personal erogenous zones in our body and, therefore, we can know what we like. This is important to know in order to enjoy pleasurable sex, but above all, it is interesting for every woman to discover her body and the incredible pleasure that it can feel by learning to play the right keys.

This self-knowledge will allow us, when we have sex, to reach orgasm in a faster and easier way so you know what you have to do is to pay more attention to stimulation for your pleasure to be immense.

Less menstrual cramps

Do you often feel a lot of pain during your period? Then, masturbation can be a good option to reduce this nuisance and help you have easier periods. The reason is that when we masturbate we stimulate the blood flow to our pelvic area and therefore, will reduce the intense pain when you do have your period.

Premenstrual pain that affects our ovaries, kidneys or back can be relieved through masturbation. Great, right?

When a woman masturbates it means that, when she has sex with her partner she can reach orgasm more easily.

It prevents infections

Besides all these benefits of masturbation that we've already listed, there is still one more and very important benefit for the sexual health of women: masturbation helps prevent infection.
