Hello, mutual masturbation!

Plus, there’s nothing quite like being confident enough to put on a sexy solo show live for your partner.
5. The more you practice, the more you know.
The educational component to the benefits of masturbation is crucial. After all, how will you know what you like if you don’t figure it out for yourself? Your mind might know what turns it on, but your body often isn’t nearly as straightforward. Experimenting with touches, sensations, and pressures will help you learn what feels good for you and, equally as important – what doesn’t.
6. It can teach you about more than just what feels good to your body.
Masturbation can also help you connect with yourself on a number of levels. For example, if you find yourself having difficulty achieving orgasm, no matter how hard you try, that could be a physical symptom of a psychological problem, such as how you’re handling relationship, family, or work issues. One of the benefits of masturbation, then, is the chance it gives you to pay attention to yourself and your body, to better understand what it’s saying to you and why.

The logic here is quite clear: the more you know about what you like, the better you can share with your partner what you need. As pointed out in our fifth point, the more you masturbate, the better you’ll know what turns you on. By extension, the better you are at turning yourself on, the better you can communicate to your partner how to turn you on, and vice versa, creating lasting, positive effects which will reverberate across your relationship and foster your best sex yet.
8. You never have a reason to be bored.
Even if you don’t have anything else to do, you can always masturbate, and there’s something to be said for that.

Start with your own body, and eventually you can discover that the whole world is full of all kinds of amazing things to explore, sexual or otherwise.
9. With many kinds of toys come many kinds of pleasures.
From G-spot vibrators to anal toys and everything in-between (literally) – you can find a unique sex toy to offer the exact kind of pleasure you want. Many women love clitoral vibrators because they get right to the point, while realistic dildos offer an experience that may be more true to life. With fetish toys, you can take the benefits of masturbation even further – like indulging in your S&M desires with Metal Worx Adjustable Nipple Clamps.

12. If you’re comfortable with masturbation, you’re comfortable in your own skin.

When you have self-confidence, the world is your oyster. From rocking more provocative lingerie than you’ve dared to try before to simply voicing a desire to learn how to spank, increased confidence will help you embody your sexiest self yet.
