As you may have heard, May is National Masturbation Month. With Twitter Buzzing about this annual event, does it make you stop and think about the subject of masturbation and sex education or do you just pass it off as a wacky group of people.
Before this year, I’d never heard of National Masturbation Month and it’s something I never gave much thought to. To be honest, I’ve only tried masturbating a few times and I didn’t like it at all. Needless to say, it’s not something I’ve ever really read up on or anything.
Now with all the talk about Masturbation going on, I’ve been giving the subject a lot of thought and reading many great articles about it. One question keeps coming back to mind, “Why don’t I like masturbation when I enjoy my husband playing with me?”
After hours of pondering this question, I finally figured it out why I don’t like masturbation; deep down I’ve always believed that my body is for the pleasure of others, not my own.
There are many reasons why I feel this way; but that’s a story for another time.
I now realize that masturbation is an important part of our sexual experience and I’m starting to wonder what I’ve been missing. We all know it makes you cumm, but
masturbation seems to be much deeper that that alone. I think that through exploring your own body you build a bond with yourself. Also, you get to know yourself; your likes and dislikes. You discover how your body reacts to different types of stimulation. Most of all, you discover and develop your inner sexual being.
Now, I feel that through exploring your own self sexually, your sex life can mature and grow in a healthy way. Empowered by knowing yourself sexually, you don’t have to fall into the trap of having others determine what should be fun for you. In addition, feeling comfortable with your sexuality allows you to open up on another level with your partner and ultimately enjoy sex to a greater degree.
I truly can’t think of one down side to masturbation. So why do I still have these feelings? Old thoughts and mindsets are hard to break down. Thank goodness for awareness campaigns such as National Masturbation Month.
Now that I’m equipped with knowledge, I’m going to start new journey.
