F
irst, here are some facts. Over 95% of men and between 56 and 89%
of women masturbate at some point in our lives. Masturbation is often
our first introduction to sexual pleasure and self-soothing.

Here are some of the benefits of masturbation, as established by
research studies.

Masturbation Lowers the Risk of Prostate Cancer

1.
Masturbation Protects against  Prostate Cancer.

Men who masturbate more than 5 times a week in their 20's are 33%  
less likely to develop the most aggressive form of prostate cancer later in
life. A 2003 study by Graham Giles at the Cancer Council of Victoria in
Melbourne Australia found that the ejaculate helps to "flush" or rid the
male body of carcinogens.  Article Continues Below.


























2.
Masturbation Tones The Penis.

Masturbation appears to tone the penis by exercising the pubococcygeal
(PC) muscle, commonly known as the "pelvic floor". The PC extends
from the mons pubis to the anus. You use your PC to hold your water,
preventing urination. Dr. Arnold Kegel a Californian obstetrician
developed the "Kegel exercises in 1946 to prevent incontinence. Since
then, Kegel exercises have been used to tighten the vagina after
childbirth and to heighten sexual pleasure in both men and women.

3.
Masturbation Relieves Stress.

Masturbation releases serotonin, the "feel good" hormone which causes
us to relax and feel better.

4.
Masturbation Induces Restful Sleep.

For many centuries, native cultures in Hawaii and elsewhere have used
masturbation to induce sleep. Many urbanites throughout history have
also discovered this natural sedative for inducing sound sleep.

Why do you want to go to sleep after ejaculating from sex or
masturbation?  The answer lies in a powerful combination of chemical
compounds released when you ejaculate from orgasm.  According to
New York University, when you ejaculate, your brain releases chemicals,
including norepinephrine, serotonin, oxytocin, vasopressin, nitric oxide
(NO), and the hormone prolactin. Prolactin is the hormone that makes
you feel sexual satisfaction and delays when you can have another
orgasm. Researchers believe that prolactin, and the chemicals oxytocin
and vasopressin cause you to feel sleepy after sex.

Because four times more prolactin is released after you have intercourse
than when you masturbate, you will in fact feel even sleepier after sex
with a partner than after you masturbate.
