Sex can affect and improve our daily life. It offers a cocktail of brain-balancing delights. Giving yourself pleasure should be as fundamental as breakfast for everyone, regardless of age, social status, or sexual orientation. It is important to know, when we orgasm, our brain releases a whole host of feel-good chemicals that offer a state of calm and well-being to the mind and body.

It’s produced in the hypothalamus and released into the bloodstream. We produce oxytocin when we’re excited by our sexual partner, and when we fall in love. Also, helps to induce anti-stress-like effects such as blood pressure and cortisol reduction.

Meanwhile, it increases pain thresholds and stimulates various types of positive social interaction. In addition, it promotes growth and healing.

Oxytocin can help us bond with loved ones and can be released of non-noxious sensory stimulation, like touching, music and exercise

Our body is amazing; it naturally offers a lot to make us feel good, all this happens when we are experiencing pleasure.

Everything about masturbation must be perceived as a fundamental part for our health, let’s put aside what other people think. This is something personal and every person is different and can do what thinks it’s best for them.

Biologically masturbation is good for health due to the chemicals that are released while we experience pleasure, it is important to maintain a healthy lifestyle involving sexual activity.

Remember that there are no rules to enjoy our sex life, the only thing that matters is to enjoy, if there are other parts involved, make them feel good as they want to.
