Over the years there's been a lot of rubbish talked about masturbation. 'It'll make you go blind' being one of the oldest! But no more. Now it's official. Masturbation is good for you.
The other problem with masturbation is that it's still one of those things most people are ashamed to talk about, but do it nevertheless! Well, don't be ashamed, because the latest video from AsapSCIENCE has shown that it can do you a lot of good and we should all be doing it! (in private of course)
The guys at AsapSCIENCE point out that masturbation makes your brain fire off good hormones, such as Dopamine. If you follow through to orgasm, you'll also release the happy hormone, endorphin. For women, one of the best ways of dealing with period pains can be to masturbate. Try it!
For men, masturbation activates certain parts of the immune system, increasing the production of white blood cells that fight infections. So it really is true, masturbating can help you get over a cold faster!
As many of our ladies in Leeds will tell you, masturbating is also a great workout! Whatever sex you are, masturbating causes the pelvic floor muscles to contract, providing your bits with a top workout.
Of course, you can always just have great sex instead!
