You’ll become weak, lose your sight, and hair will grow on the palms of your hands. Those are just a few of the side effects of masturbation we were taught to believe.

In fact, science only has great things to say about masturbation and it has been proven to provide many health benefits for men and women. Here’s how masturbation every day will keep the doctor away!
The Benefits of Masturbation Are Old News
For all the awful things that have been said about masturbation through the years, it turns out doctors have known it was good for women’s health for a very long time. Back in the 19th century, and even earlier, women could go to a doctor or a midwife to receive genital stimulation as a treatment for their hysteria.
Yes, you read that correctly! Masturbation used to be prescribed and it was performed by doctors and midwives. It’s funny to think that this sort of thing used to happen. And we should be grateful because many of the developments in that era led to vibrators. Imagine how tired doctors and midwives would get! It’s no surprise they started to think of ways to solve this issue. Thank you, technology!
