Little Shop of Pleasures owners Chris & Don Wilhelm have heard it all when it comes to people's conceptions of love and relationships. With that in mind, in this recent blog entry they seek to set the record straight RE: real life vs. romantic movies. SO LISTEN UP.
Masturbation is no big deal- unless you want to reduce stress in your life, improve your overall mood, increase your sexual desire, enhance intimacy with your partner, and expand your sexual palette. This is just the tip of the iceberg. And it's free and tax-free (shhhhhhh, don’t tell the government)!
Many women wonder if masturbation will reduce the passion in their relationships. Passion is not limited. Don’t think about your sexuality like apples in a basket, where you start off with ten apples, eat two of them on the way home and only have eight left.
A more accurate way to think about your sexuality is to compare it to a muscle. Like a muscle, the more you exercise it the larger and stronger it gets, the longer you will be able to use it, and the more you will be able to do with it. Far from taking anything away from your sexual relationship, instead, it would add to it.
Another excellent reason why masturbation is good for you is it feels great. Why does it feel great? It floods the body with feel good chemicals that lower our stress, elevate our mood, and create a stronger muscle of desire.
Masturbation uses two of our favourite organs, our genitals and our brain. The imagination is a powerful secret tool. Creating mental fantasies when masturbating is a fun way to use our imagination and exercise the mind. No matter what you start thinking of while you masturbate, eventually, you will become bored and begin adding new ideas which then broaden your sexual palette. Remember, what you focus on expands.
Speaking of expanding your sexual palette, an excellent way to do this for free is by utilizing the HUGE amount of free pornography available on the internet. Whether you watch videos or read stories, it is a way to expose yourself to new and interesting ideas you may not have considered before.
It is vital for women to masturbate frequently. Besides all the amazing reasons we mention above, masturbation prevents muscle atrophy. As we age, our muscles, including those in our genitals will start to atrophy and with women this means sex becomes painful. So ladies, start diddling down under.
Now we would like to encourage men to masturbate... but who are we kidding. Guys have had this down for generations. Keep on stroking.
