    15 Things People Believe About Masturbation

    When it comes to masturbation, everyone has an opinion.

    For some, it's the highlight of their day, and they can't get enough of it; for others, the appeal is completely unfathomable.

    Over the years, a ton of myths have sprung up around the concept of self-love, and it can be tricky sometimes to seperate the fact from the fiction.

    Will you go blind? Is it bad for you? Will it ruin sex if you do it?

    Particularly when it comes to our upbringing and the beliefs of those around us, the benefits of masturbation can be a bit of a murky area.

    4 Fantastic Toys For Masturbation

    For many of us, D.I.Y. is a term more often associated with tedious weekend trips to B&Q than something a lot more pleasurable.

    A History of Masturbation

    Whether you’re a bean-flicker or a bishop-basher, we can pretty much all agree that masturbation is great.

    But have you ever wondered how solo play slots into the history of humankind?

    From kinky cave paintings to steam-powered sybians, the history of self-love is deep, intricate, and inherently fascinating.

    For example, did you know that cornflakes were invented to lower your desire to yank the crank? Or that the first dildo is almost 30,000 years old, and made of polished siltstone?

    So hop on your hand-cranked time machine and come with us (pun intended) on a trip along a torrid timeline of touching yourself.

    The Problems With Kinkshaming

    We've come a long way in our perceptions of sex and sexuality recently, but we still have a long way to go.

    I doubt anyone reading this would feel anything but appalled at the idea of someone being made to feel ashamed of their sexual orientation, gender identity or relationship status, or unable to express their sexual desires.

    Yet, it's still so common in our society for people whose preferences when it comes to sex itself lie beyond the vanilla to feel abnormal or confused.

    So I've taken a look at the key reasons why this is a problem, and why it needs to change.
