Masturbation

Why do we masturbate?

Masturbation is a way to discover and explore the erogenous zones of your body and your genitals. The purpose is to feel sexual pleasure and sometimes to have an orgasm.

It’s your choice!

Masturbation is a personal choice. You’re free to masturbate or not, to do it alone or with a partner. The important thing is to respect your own pace, feelings, and values. If you feel like doing it, go ahead. If not, it’s fine to wait or even never to do it at all!

The right time

Needless to say, masturbation is something you do in private, alone or with your partner. So it’s important to choose the right time and place so you won’t be disturbed.

Is it bad for my health?

No! Masturbation has no negative affect on your health. In fact, it can even have positive effects. It can help you relax or ease sexual tension. However, if masturbation starts to take up too much space in your life and you think about it all the time, you should discuss it with a counsellor or someone else you trust.
