Goodlovin’ with Dr. Cathy

Why you should be doing it...often

Masturbation. Admitting to it or even saying it out loud seems to have so much baggage and shame attached to it, but why? This often-unmentionable topic tends to be something only men are expected to do on a regular basis. But, ladies, listen up: Don’t miss out on this pleasure party you literally have right at your own hands. 

Aside from discovering more about your body and educating yourself on what you like or don’t like sexually, this natural and healthy activity has many other health benefits you may not be aware of. 

Better sleep

Herbal teas, oils and over-the-counter sleep aids not cutting it anymore? Are you desperate for some quality sleep? After reaching a climax, your body automatically becomes very relaxed and calm, leading to a much more restful night of slumber. 

Stress and tension release

Trying to unwind and relax is not easy, but it is necessary. Our bodies were designed to be relieved of stress in natural ways, and it doesn’t get any more natural than this. 

It feels really good, of course

I hate to point out the obvious, but who doesn’t enjoy a great orgasm – especially one brought on exactly the way you like it done. If you are happy and satisfied, let’s face it, your world is a much better place. 


If masturbation is not something you have ever been super active with, there of course will be some awkwardness and uncertainly at first. But venture into that unfamiliar territory and your body will love you for it, you will love your body more, and you really have nothing to lose. Make time for this new and healthy habit. It won’t disappoint.

Please always remember in all sexual activity, practice responsibly and safely.
