When you masturbate, you are….
1. Giving your brain a natural surge of neurochemicals that increase happiness and reduce pain.
2. Putting your pleasure front and centre, in a world where (particularly, women’s) pleasure is often not considered a priority.
3. Allowing time to connect to your body and your mind. In many ways, masturbation can be seen as a form of meditation when done mindfully. It’s also a powerful educational space where you can learn what you like.
