my (male) friend once told me that if he didn’t jerk off, he’d probably murder people. it’s a stress release thing for him.
but look at all these other things that masturbation can do:
-it can help you sleep
-it can satisfy you sexually so you don’t make bad/impulsive choices about who you sleep with
-it can satisfy you sexually so you can focus on things that are more important than sex and love
-it can be transcendent and spiritual
-it can ease menstrual cramps
-it’s good for your heart and overall sexual health
-it can teach you what you like in bed, so you can teach that to a partner
-it can help you learn to orgasm if you never have before
-it can be a wonderful accompaniment to any kind of crazy sexual fantasy you can dream up
-it can be an activity you share with a partner, or just do on your own
seriously, i don’t understand people who think masturbation is wrong/bad/pointless. have they actually tried it? have they actually stuck with it for long enough that they got good at it? probably not.
