Masturbation boosts your immune system – true story!
Good news – if you’re looking to boost your immune system, it’s been scientifically proven that masturbation is the answer.
Sure, washing your hands is important, but it’s official – masturbation improves the functioning of your immune system by providing a natural boost to your cortisol levels.
Cortisol is important because it helps to regulate how your immune system functions.
What other health benefits does masturbation have?
It’s not just your immune system that benefits from your regular masturbation session. There’s actually loads of reasons you that having a bit of quality me-time is good for your health.
Masturbation delivers your body a boost of endorphins through the bloodstream. These endorphins can help you to tackle depression and anxiety.
It’s also a great stress-relief strategy. If you’ve had a difficult day and finding it hard to switch off, find a quiet space and treat yourself to the ultimate relaxation technique.
Some studies have also shown that masturbation can help boost your self-esteem. The science behind that claim isn’t exactly clear, but if you’re relaxed, not feeling stressed, and you’re anxiety is under control, then it makes a fair bit of sense that you’re giving yourself the head-space to feel good about yourself.
Masturbation stimulates your prostate gland – even if you’re not specifically targeting it with a toy or a dildo. If your prostate is active, you’re less likely to develop prostate cancer.
Embracing a bit of self-love has also been shown to help lower your blood pressure.
Honestly, it’s a total no-brainer. Schedule some regular me-time and you’ll be ready to take on the world.
