Masturbation is even recommended during your period and here is why.
Who says that having our period doesn't come with personal pleasure and female masturbation? Yes, ladies, even during your period you are allowed to treat yourself (or be treated) with pleasure. And no, there's nothing dirty about it.
Why is it okay to masturbate during your period?
Menstrual sex or masturbation is good for your health. In fact, according to several studies, orgasm and the release of endorphins can considerably reduce menstrual pain.
According to Dr Alexandra Hubin, sexologist and doctor of psychology, interviewed by Passeport Santé, it is even recommended:
"During masturbation and at the moment of orgasm, the hormone known as the pleasure hormone, the dopamine, is released, which causes a feeling of well-being.
Thus, the other chemical processes that cause pain are naturally pushed into the background, which is similar to pain relief. At the same time, the metabolism and blood circulation are stimulated, which also reduces the pain. Finally, when the muscles contract and relax during orgasm, this also has a relaxing effect."
How do you masturbate when you have your period?
If contact with your own blood (although natural) limits your desire to masturbate, don't panic. There are a few tricks. Firstly, masturbating in the shower is ideal when you are on your period. There is no trace of blood, everything is clean. Otherwise, you can use a vibrator. Remember to clean it well, whether you have your period or not. Finally, the towel-on-sheets technique can be useful to avoid staining bed linen.
