Why Masturbation Gets Your Doctor’s Thumbs Up
We all know that masturbation is pleasurable, but is it good for you? Actually, yes. Masturbation has been found to have a range of health benefits that are so excellent your doctor will give this activity a thumbs up.
For men, masturbation (and frequent ejaculation) reduces the risk of prostate cancer. For women, masturbation has been known to improve blood flow, which helps prevent both cervical and urinary tract infections. For both men and women, a little self-love also helps improve immune function by increasing cortisol levels. Sounds pretty great, right?
