Long gone are the days when we thought masturbation was unhealthy and dangerous for your health. On the exact opposite, masturbation can actually save your life one day!
A scientific study conducted by the Center for Sexual Health Promotion, Indiana University, in the United States, with a representative sample of more than 3,000 women, highlighted a surprising link between the use of vibrators and detection of certain cancers.
Indeed, users of vibrators were much more likely to have had a gynaecological examination during the past year and to have carried out a genital self-examination during the previous month. However, genital self-examination has been suggested as an important tool for the early detection of vulvar skin abnormalities.
Although the relationship between the use of vibrators and these routine health practices is significant, the exact nature of these relationships is not known. It is possible that women who use a vibrator are also women who feel comfortable with their bodies. And therefore, more likely to touch their genitals for health reasons or not be embarrassed by a gynaecological examination. It may also be that novelty or sexual pleasure motivates women to use a vibrator, and that this experience helps them feel more comfortable with their genital and gynaecological examinations.
Whatever the reason, the lesson for us remains the same. We are still too numerous not to be interested in our private parts, even to find them repulsive.
But by masturbating, we discover our body, we get to know it better. This brings us marvels of pleasure, but also the ability to take great care of us! And building this new relationship with our body can one day save our lives...
For far too long women have bought into the mentality that masturbation is wrong, or sinful, or dirty, or generally just a taboo topic. When actually, female masturbation is GOOD for health, for both the body and the mind!
Cancer is a total ordeal for the body and mind. Treatments transform our body, whether it is surgical operations, or chemotherapies that can cause early menopause. And sex may not feel very appealing. You can feel as if your body isn’t yours anymore or has become only a place of pain. But your body is still yours to enjoy, you just need to reconnect to yourself!
