10 Health Benefits of Orgasms and How Sex Toys Can Help
Orgasms shouldn’t be the point of every sexual encounter, alone or with yourself, but there’s no denying that there are benefits to climaxing at least every so often. Plus, it feels amazing! Beyond relieving boredom, orgasms offer a variety of potential health benefits. If you find it difficult to get off, sex toys can help.
Here’s what you need to know.
The Health Benefits of Orgasms
Masturbation or sex with a partner are each great ways to feel sexual pleasure, relax, and, of course, have a satisfying orgasm. If you’re getting off on a regular basis (once or twice a week), you may be receiving multiple health benefits. Orgasms can:
- Release oxytocin known as the love or cuddle hormone that makes you feel good.
- Reduce cortisol levels which can help control hunger and even reduce belly fat.
- Boost testosterone which can increase sexual desire and improve your mood and memory
- Suppress or relieve existing pain and even increase your pain tolerance
- Lower blood pressure and decrease your risk of heart disease
- Help you fall asleep. Anyone who’s dropped off right after an orgasm knows this is true.
- Increase antibodies and white blood cells that fight disease, bacteria, and viruses in your body
- Increase blood flow to your brain bringing nutrients and oxygen your brain needs
- Normalize your menstrual cycle
- Help you look younger due to additional blood flow and reduced stress
Orgasms don’t just happen in your genitals. They’re a full body experience and set off a cascade of reactions like releasing oxytocin and endorphins.
How Sex Toys Can Help
If having an orgasm isn’t something you do a lot or it’s been a while since you’ve had one, it’s easy to feel a bit anxious about whether you can get off at all. Whether you’re single or in a relationship, sex toys can make your orgasms easier and better.
Reduce Your Orgasmic Stress
Many women don’t have an orgasm through penetrative sex and even more find that it takes a while for an orgasm to build. Men with erectile dysfunction have their own sexual function stress whether it’s about getting hard, staying that way, or getting off. Sex toys help reduce those stressful feelings. How? They’re a tool designed to stimulate your body in pleasant ways and enhance the sexual experience.
Stimulate the Right Spots
If you’ve ever felt like you failed at finding the most pleasurable spot on your body, you’re not alone. Sex toys can help pinpoint the specific areas that light up with pleasure most. This might be a prostate massager that taps that p-spot or a clitoral vibrator that focuses all the stimulation on your clit.
Offer Faster, Easier Orgasms
Not every sex toy can guarantee a faster, easier orgasm (or an orgasm at all) but the right one for you might be exactly what you need. If you like vibrations or heavy stimulation, a vibrator will move faster than your hand will. If you prefer internal stimulation but your hand just won’t bend that way, a dildo or anal toy can hit the perfect spot. This helps speed up your pleasure and may help you get off faster than you would without a toy.
Use With or Without a Partner
Sex toys are most often considered something you use for masturbation, but they don’t have to be. For those who are single, use a sex toy if it’s preferable to your hand or you’re looking for new sensations. If you’re in a relationship, bring a sex toy to bed with you and get off together — or at least while you’re both naked at the same time. This is a great option for partners who don’t get off on penetration but want to share the moment with a partner.
Having an orgasm doesn’t have to be the sole purpose for masturbating or having sex with a partner. And if you’re stressed out about it, you’re not going to have a good time. But if orgasms are part of your sexual experience, having them on a regular basis could be good for your health. Using a sex toy to get yourself off can enhance your pleasure and make it easier to climax. For your next orgasm, shop Caliente Adult Superstore to find the perfect sex toy.
