Tabuu Wrap-up: Do yourself a favor and learn to truly enjoy yourself through masturbation.
Masturbation Month is the kind of holiday everyone can get behind. Well, it’s not technically a holiday, but it’s an important month for several reasons. There’s still a bit of stigma around the idea of masturbation, especially as it relates to women.
While the knowledge that masturbation is perfectly normal has been filtering slowly but surely into the world, there are still people who associate it with shame and embarrassment.
This holiday of sorts is all about self-love and the promotion of healthy sexuality and well-being. If you want to join in the fun and celebrate yourself through masturbation, here are 7 different ways you can do this.
1. Make It a Daily Habit
Whether you’ve already integrated masturbation into your daily life or you’re a novice, Masturbation Month can be the perfect opportunity to get yourself a vibrator or a dildo and enjoy yourself. Masturbating is good for you, not just physically, but mentally, and this is backed up by numerous studies. We are capable of experiencing pleasure in many different ways, so why not make it a part of daily life?
2. Set Up a Sexy Movie Night Focused on Masturbation
The point of setting up a movie night is not to be super awkward about it, but to be inspired by positive and empowering representations of masturbation. Masturbation is being portrayed more and more realistically, which makes it fun and exciting to watch. Some positive representations can be found in movies such as “Secretary”, “The To-Do List”, and “Pleasantville”, just to get started, but there are many more out there.
3. Start a Vibrator Club With Friends
If you’re used to attending clubs or groups related to your interests or hobbies, maybe you could start a club of your own, but focused on masturbation. A vibrator club can be a space for you and your friends to come together, whether in person or online, to share tips and talk about the different vibrators you’re trying out, lubes, techniques, etc. You may have tried things your friends haven’t and vice versa, so talking about it can further your exploration of masturbation.
4. Dispel the Myth that Masturbation Is Not for Women
The topic of women masturbating used to be a big taboo and some people still feel very awkward talking about it. Personally, I think it’s not discussed enough. Masturbation Month is a great opportunity to spread the word and talk about a subject that’s important to you and spread awareness. According to a study in 2008, 92% of women masturbate somewhat regularly, so you’ll find many people willing to listen and have a discussion about it.
5. Post Updates to Encourage Others During Masturbation Month
I’m not saying you should share graphic, intimate details of how your Masturbation Month is going to the shock of your friends and family. However, you could post updates, encouraging messages, or even write an article about how your experience is going so people can be encouraged to give it a try. You could even share tips and knowledge!
6. Give Mutual Masturbation a Try
Trying something new is always fun, no matter if you’re single, casually dating or in a committed relationship. So instead of paying so much attention to intercourse, why not give mutual masturbation a try? It will make you feel a lot more vulnerable, so you’ll need to be more open and trusting, but you may enjoy it and find more pleasure in it than you think.
7. Make a Top 5 List for Masturbation Inspiration
If you haven’t heard of it, a Top 5 list is a list of celebrities you would have sex with if you could. In honor of Masturbation Month, make a Top 5 list specifically for your masturbation sessions. Be as detailed as possible because you want this to fuel your imagination when you get down to business!
As you can see, you can take advantage of Masturbation Month in many different ways. Of course, the main source of enjoyment and pleasure is masturbation itself. But there are many other things you can do that will help you integrate masturbation into your life and be a lot more comfortable with your own body.
