10 amazing unknown benefits of NOT masturbating

We all know the benefits of masturbating, they’re glorious, but there are also benefits to not masturbating – believe it or not. While people have been masturbating for as long as we’ve had erotic zones, it is still looked down upon in some cultures and religions. Let’s be honest, that hasn’t stopped some from stealing a few minutes of pleasure when alone.

The frequency with which people masturbate varies upon personal need and sometimes personal beliefs. For those who choose not to masturbate, once they do partake in intercourse, they experience certain benefits you just cannot achieve with self-pleasure, and they could be just what you’ve been looking for.

  1. The real thing will be better. Way better than your hand. Masturbation gets rid of sexual desire, therefore you’re not as turned on for the real thing as you could be. This can lead to actual sex being less satisfactory, aka when you cum you won’t experience that releasing feeling.
  2. It’ll be easier to orgasm. Especially women. When you give up having control over your own orgasm, you give someone else the chance to give you one. Keep in mind, it takes longer to finish after each time you orgasm so it will take longer and longer for you to get there each time.
  3. You’ll be more productive. You’ll stay more focused on specific tasks because those who masturbate have sex on the brain more often than not. It also takes up a lot of your time, especially if you’re watching porn while you’re at it.
  4. You’ll have more energy. Masturbating can get tiring, it’s as simple as that.
  5. It’s easier to get aroused. Honestly, it’ll take almost nothing to turn you on so if you struggle with your libido this is definitely something to try. Skin-on-skin action will rile you up instantly and gentlemen will wake up thinking they’re 14 again.
  6. You can get rid of depression. It’s what some people have reported when giving up masturbation, but it’s something that you will only know if you try it out. Everyone is different, but they say if you stop masturbating you’ll start to feel better.
  7. You’ll feel more connected during sex, more connected and more affectionate. Those who masturbate tend to leave their orgasms up to themselves, but if you’re not masturbating you’re letting your partner in bed take charge of your needs. This is what allows you to feel more connected to them. Isn’t sex always better when you’re emotionally bonded with the person anyways?
  8. You’ll have more interest in one person. SERIOUSLY. Scientists discovered that those who masturbate usually watch porn to get themselves off, which translated to the same individuals needing variety in their sex lives (like when you switch between videos on your favourite porn site).
  9. You’ll be less anxious. Normally, we aren’t aware of what causes our anxiety on a regular basis, let alone how to deal with them. Some experience subconscious guilt over masturbation due to culture or religion, while others are affected by the addictive properties of masturbating. This brings us to the last unknown benefit of not masturbating.
  10. You’re freed of addictive behaviour. We all know addictions are bad, most of us cannot function without our morning java, and they can take over your life in truly terrible ways. The same area of the brain triggered by the use of addictive substances is the same area masturbation triggers.

All of this being said, masturbation is completely natural and many many people do it on a regular basis. Knowing the unknown benefits of not masturbating could help you take a much-needed time out to re-evaluate and make some important decisions.
