Find Your Wiggle: The Benefits of Self-Love and Masturbation

It’s International Masturbation Month so we want to talk all things self-love, starting with the benefits of masturbation. It is a tricky topic and often people feel embarrassed to talk about it, let alone do it!  But a little solo play and pleasure can be extremely beneficial for both physical and mental health and well-being. Masturbation is a natural activity yet many still shy away from discussing it openly. It's time to break down those barriers and celebrate the beauty of self-love. Let's start with the benefits.

Stress Relief

Masturbation triggers the release of endorphins and oxytocin, often referred to as the body's natural feel-good chemicals. These neurotransmitters promote relaxation and reduce stress and in this overstimulating world, a little stress relief is needed for most of us!

Improved Sleep

The release of endorphins during orgasm can also aid in better sleep quality. Masturbating before bedtime can help you unwind and fall asleep faster, leading to a more restful night's sleep.


Engaging in solo sexual activity allows you to explore your body and discover what feels pleasurable to you. Understanding your preferences, how you like to be touched, and where,  can enhance your sexual experiences. Knowing what makes you wiggle can lead to great satisfaction in intimate relationships with partners too!

Boosted Mood

Masturbation has been linked to an increase in mood and overall happiness. Taking time to indulge in self-pleasure can uplift your spirits and provide a sense of empowerment and self-confidence.

Body Confidence

Hands up who doesn’t like their body much? We spend a lot of time looking at our bodies in the mirror but do we touch them? Physically getting hands-on with your body can help you get comfortable with yourself, lumps and bumps and all, and elevate your confidence when it comes to getting naked. 

Embracing self-pleasure is an act of self-love and acceptance. The multiple benefits that masturbation offers make it a no-brainer. Whether you are a midweek masturbator or a weekend explorer, whether you use toys or simply your fingers, find a way to masturbate that suits you.
