Few people talk about masturbation – but although it’s taboo to discuss, many people do it and it can have positive effects on our mind and body. One benefit of masturbation is that many people feel it helps them sleep better. Though it hasn’t been scientifically proven to help sleep, masturbation certainly helps us feel more relaxed and can relieve stress – ultimately resulting in a better night’s rest.
Orgasms relieve tension in the body, allowing you to fall asleep quicker. It also releases dopamine and oxytocin, hormones that provoke tiredness. It also releases endorphins, which can relieve pain and have a sedative affect – similar to how many people sleep better after working out. While not a cure for a lack of sleep or insomnia, it is certainly a trick to try if you are having trouble sleeping. However, if you are having trouble sleeping for a long period of time, you should see a doctor.
Science says there is no “normal” amount of masturbation – some people masturbate once a week, once a day, or once in a blue moon. In addition to helping you sleep, masturbating can help men and women become more comfortable with their body, improve your sex life, release sexual tension, and ease other body aches and pains.
Relieving stress – whether through exercise, a massage, or masturbation – can help you sleep. Next time you are lying in bed unable to sleep, try masturbating to help you sleep. It will help you relax and could be your new sleeping aid.
