Is it harmful for children to masturbate? Can self-satisfaction be a symptom of a bad relationship in a couple? These and other exciting questions are answered by a professional sexologist Lori Watson.
1. Children involved in masturbation, begin to have sex early - the myth
All children explore their bodies. And some touches bring them more joy than others. Therefore, there is nothing terrible or surprising in that boys and girls begin to masturbate
Studies show that age-appropriate sex education reduces the risk of sexual promiscuity in children and adolescents, and also reduces the risk of other problems at the beginning of sexual activity.
The only thing that can cause concern is excessive masturbation in young children. It is possible that it is a sign of anxiety or stress.
2. In relationships, adults do not need masturbation - a myth
Most people masturbate throughout life. This is done by the fetuses in the mother's womb, and the elderly. Of course, after puberty, we realize the beauty of being close to others. But this is far from the final point in the story of self-satisfaction.
There are many reasons why people can masturbate, even while in a relationship. Perhaps they need it to relieve stress. Perhaps in order to resolve sexual differences with a partner. Or maybe just because it's nice.
3. If one of the partners masturbates, then the relationship does not satisfy him - a myth
Consider an example. Conventional Katie discovers that her husband Brian Masturbates in the shower. He says: this is his standard morning ritual. Katie is shocked. She worries that she is no longer sexy for her husband. But Brian explains that his actions have nothing to do with her. He masturbates simply because it is pleasant, fast and he likes to start his day like that.
I must say that sometimes masturbation is still a sign of problems in the pair . This case will be discussed below.
4. Masturbation helps to study the body - a fact.
First, most teenagers open an orgasm through masturbation. Secondly, experts advise and adult women who have problems with achieving orgasm during sex, to resort to this simple method. For them, this can be a way to learn to have fun without concentrating on the needs of a partner.
5. Masturbation - the fastest way to orgasm - a fact.
Women often admit that they get an orgasm on their own for a couple of minutes, and with a partner - for 45.
The fact is that masturbation is usually caused by strong sexual desire. Sex is often initiated by one of the partners. And although the second one may also experience excitement, he does not necessarily keenly want sexual release.
6. People prefer sex masturbation - fact and myth.
Many say that masturbation gives physical satisfaction, but not a deep sense of completeness and a sense of the close relationship that sex brings.
However, sometimes because of difficulties in intimate life with a partner, a person begins to prefer self-gratification to sexual contact. This is an alarm signal. Therefore, if sexual differences in a couple cause distress or a weakening of the connection between partners, it is worth going to sex therapy together.
Summarizing all the above, we can conclude: most often masturbation is normal. Most people start doing it in childhood and continue throughout their lives.
Perhaps we are sometimes ashamed to admit this, but the fact remains that everyone either masturbated or masturbated and continues to masturbate. So keep your hands not above the blanket, but on the pulse of your desires.
