1. TO CHILL THE F*CK OUT!
Everyone is experiencing this pandemic in different ways, but most of us are experiencing at least a bit of stress because of unexpected change. Masturbation and orgasm is an incredible stress relief and a safe way to experience pleasure while alone and isolating at home.
2. TO RELIEVE SEXUAL TENSION
Allot of us, especially those who are single or not cohabitating with our sexual partners are likely feeling allot of sexual tension, and there’s nothing wrong with taking things into your own hands. Don’t let your urges lead you into unsafe dating scenarios because no one should be having sex with people they don’t live with right now.
3. TO RELIEVE PAIN AND MUSCULAR TENSION
Similarly to relieving sexual tension, orgasm can also relieve tension in the body where you are feeling tightness and pain. For allot of us, we may not be moving our bodies in the same ways as we did before isolation, and it could be taking our muscles a long time to adapt to these changes, often causing pain. If your sleep patterns have been thrown off by the change in your routine or your mental health, an orgasm before bed can be a great alternative to a sleeping pill!
4. TO HAVE BETTER SEX WHEN THIS IS ALL OVER!
Self-pleasure inevitably teaches you what you like and need in your body during sex, so when it’s safe for us to meet up with our sexual partners again, chances are, communication will be a priority and better sex will be the result!
5. FOR THE POSITIVE FEELS!
For those of us who’s mental health may be taking a decline during this time self-love, pleasure and orgasms release happy and heart-warming neurotransmitters, so a little one on one time may just be what the doctor ordered.
We stand with those who’s lives have been impacted during this extraordinary time of transition — we see you and we feel for you. Our ‘figurative’ doors are always open, so if you think it would serve you,
please reach out (via DM or email) if you need someone to listen. Sending you all of the love and grounding vibrations!
