Self-pleasure is rarely, if ever talked about, and female masturbation especially, which happens to be the commonest, still makes people weirdly uncomfortable. Who knew it had health benefits?

According to research, about 92% of women say they masturbate so why isn’t it talked about?

It’s been discovered that solo sex can not only boost your emotional well-being and your sex life, it can also improve your health. These are some of the incredible health benefits of maturbation.

1. Improves Sleep
 Masturbation is actually a natural snooze sedative. Better (and way more exciting) than the rainforest sleep sounds on your phone. Self-pleasure produces endorphins, the essential chemicals that help ease pain, stress, and cause you to relax.

2. Strengthens Muscles
Masturbation tones pelvic and anal muscles. Not only does having a stronger pelvic floor lead to better sex, it can also reduce a woman's chance of involuntary urine leakage.

3. Menstrual Pain Relief

According to WebMD, self-pleasure can actually relieve a lot of the pain you feel during your period. Premenstrual irritability, cramps and those painful backaches you get during your period can all be eased by masturbation. Masturbation actually increases blood flow to the pelvic region.

4. Alleviates Urinary Tract Infections
Are you prone to UTIs? Masturbating not only helps relieve discomfort, it also can flush out old bacteria from the cervix.

5. Lowers Risk Of Type 2 Diabetes
Women who experience more orgasms have been shown to have a greater resistance to type 2 diabetes.
