Did you know that John Harvey Kellogg, the creator of the Kellogg’s cereal brand, believed that masturbation was unhealthy so in order to prevent it he created corn flakes?
Yeah, crazy right. Well… not really. Many people grew up believing that self-love and sexual pleasures is something to be guilty or ashamed of. I myself have been taught that it’s bad to touch yourself, it’s nasty, and just something that is forbidden. I literally thought I was going to go to hell for my sexual urges. I grew up in a Christian home where I felt like I was walking on egg shells doing just about anything pleasurable. I couldn’t even watch someone kissing. Now that’s crazy.
As I got older and began doing my own research I found that a lot of the things I thought were like crazy sins was actually not. I mean let’s be honest, why would little kids touch themselves if it was really something evil? Like unborn babies even participate in this behavior, so how could it be evil?
In my opinion masturbation is just like eating, or taking a shit. I feel good after relieving myself and I feel amazing when eating a plate of unhealthy food. If pleasure isn’t normal then why would God give those emotions to us? Why should we feel guilty when receiving a gift from God (the gift of pleasure)?
Instead of living a miserable life why not have fun and enjoy all the things given to us from God. Sex, and sexual pleasures are natural it’s apart of being human, sex and love is what creates us in the first place so how can those things be bad?
Masturbation is so beneficial to the body, mind, and soul. It’s a great way to relieve stress and bring up your euphoric levels. Practicing in masturbation can result in longer and stronger orgasms while gaining sexual confidence and empowerment.
Tips for Masturbating
It’s important to be in a comfortable environment where you feel safe and won’t be disturbed. Sometimes because of our environment we are rushing these sexual pleasures hence, missing out on the whole experience. Instead our mind is just focused on relieving ourselves instead of loving ourselves.
*You don’t need porn or sex toys to self-love*
Yes… you read that right. Many people believe that you need porn to masturbate or sex toys or whatever but that’s why we have our minds and hands. Also using those things can rob you of the whole experience because you’re no longer in the moment instead you’re just distracting yourself.
When masturbating many people forget to pay attention to their whole body. Imagine an experience between you and your partner, (or past partner if you’re single) and how you make love or have sex with them. The same gentle touches you give them, give to yourself. Shower yourself with loving and gentle strokes all over and appreciate your temple. Doing just that can create a whole body experience, not just at your genitalia.
Last but not least, breath is another important thing in creating one of the best sexual experiences of your life. Sometimes unconsciously we end up forgetting to breathe but when you concentrate on your breathing you get to feel the sensation all across your body, from the top of your head to the tip of your toes.
Did you also grow up believing self pleasure (masturbation) was a bad thing?
