What masturbation has to do with gummy bears: 6 reasons to close the Masturbation Gap
The Orgasm Gap is now almost as well known as the Gender Gap. But did you know that there is also a masturbation gap? When it comes to masturbation, according to a Forsa survey commissioned by ORION, men and women behave like two opposite poles: while 62 percent of men give themselves a hand at least once a week, 52 percent of women say they do so once a month, if at all – rather rarely, and 23 percent of women never. ORION knows six good reasons why women in particular should touch themselves more often.
… strengthens the immune system
… increases self-confidence
… improves orgasms during sex
… increases sexual desire
… reveals new points of pleasure
Masturbation increases the immune system by 60 percent, because it also stimulates the formation of white blood cells, which are responsible for the immune defence.
Those who satisfy themselves have a higher self-confidence. This is because self-awareness is to be understood literally: being aware of oneself. By consciously questioning one’s own needs – not least sexual needs – one’s self-awareness increases, which in turn increases one’s charisma.
Masturbation improves orgasms during sex! If you know what you like best, you can direct your attention exactly there during partnered sex. After all, each of us is responsible for our own orgasms.
Masturbation is relaxing. After an orgasm, muscles and brain relax, and at the same time prolactin, oxytocin, endorphins and adrenaline are released – masturbation thus produces a true happiness-bringing hormone cocktail!
Put an end to sexual aversion! If you masturbate regularly, you will feel more like having sex. When you do something regularly, it becomes a habit. This applies to eating gummy bears in the evening just as much as to masturbating or having sex with a partner – with the difference that masturbation and sex burn calories. With this knowledge, it’s much easier to snack on the sofa in the evening – after all, the calories could be burnt off again right afterwards.
New horizons of pleasure
Masturbation also draws attention to new, perhaps previously unknown or neglected erogenous zones. After all, women are not only aroused at the clitoris or the G-spot. Who has heard of the A-spot or U-spot?
The fact that a lack of masturbation and sexual dissatisfaction are often connected is also reflected in the questions that we at ORION receive in our social media channels and in customer service. Here, our tip amazes many: Love yourself! Those who want to get some ideas for this can find them in the book “WILLkommen”, in which ORION has combined the most frequently asked questions – an educational book for adults. So, what are we waiting for? Come on, women, let’s close the Masturbation Gap!
