Sex is like ice cream...it's okay to indulge in it alone!
I mean, sure, it's great to share it with someone special. But hey -- YOU'RE special, right?
And you know that "they" say about masturbation, right? It's sex with someone you love! At least, I sure hope that's the case!
Masturbation is a natural thing. We all do it. How can you tell if someone is lying to you about masturbation? If they say they NEVER...rest assured, they're more than likely fibbing about it.
And that's because we're taught (well...an unfortunate too many of us are taught) that it's a shameful, dirty thing.
It's not. You're not going to get hairy palms, or be struck by lightening. (Although I suppose if you're masturbating outside, during a thunder storm, and you're holding a metal object or near something tall, you might be courting danger.)
It's also important that you know how to pleasure yourself. After all, how can you expect a partner to do what you can't do yourself? Or don't understand what your body likes? You can't communicate your preferences if you have no idea what they are.
The FoxNews article I linked in my last post mentioned that the sex myth: "If you don't have a partner, there's no point in having a libido." To which I say, poppycock. (G)
As always, balance is important. You don't want your activities interfering with your work, or interfering with a relationship you DO have. (If you spend so much time pleasuring yourself that you're not interesed in engaging in sexual activities with your partner, then...that's not a good thing.)
But orgasm is good for the body. Good for the brain. Good for the mood.
So next time you find yourself in the mood for a little ice cream, and there's no one around to share it with...go ahead. Indulge by yourself.
