With many of us working from home, in self-isolation and social distancing there’s one thing we can most certainly achieve to keep us happy – an orgasm.

According to sexual wellness Doctor for Kandid Elesha Vooght masturbating while in isolation can have many benefits, including relieving stress, boosting your immune system and even providing pain relief.

“Regular solo sex comes (literally and metaphorically) with a multitude of benefits, which is where sex toy companies such as Kandid come into play.

“They’re attempting to break down the stigma around sex toys, making them accessible for all. After reading how pleasure can improve your life, I promise you will be reaching for your vibrator in no time!” Dr Elesha says.

If it’s prescribed by a doctor then what are we waiting for? Let’s see what else it helps with…

Relieving stress

Let’s start with your mental health. When we masturbate, our brain releases its store of “happy hormones”, mainly dopamine and oxytocin. Dopamine gives you a boost in your mood, making you feel happier.

Oxytocin combats stress hormone (cortisol) levels in the blood, which automatically relaxes you. These hormones are the perfect biochemistry for a deep and restful sleep, which we know can improve your mental wellbeing.

Masturbation uses repetitive movements and tends to be all consuming, making it a perfect mindfulness practice. It can also give you a much needed confidence boost. Regular masturbation helps you acknowledge your body and all the great things it can do for you, leading to an increase in self esteem.

Glowing skin and less wrinkles

A surprising benefit of regular masturbation is great skin! The hormones released during masturbation have a variety of anti-inflammatory properties, which can help flush all the nasties from your skin.

Better sleep also leads to a reduced chance of developing acne. Endorphin release raises our heart rate and reduces our blood pressure, giving our skin a dewy glow. When women orgasm, we get a big wave of oestrogen into our system, which is associated with improved skin elasticity and less wrinkles.

Better sex

Regular masturbation, especially with a rumbly toy like The Small One from Kandid, increases nerve sensitivity. If you have a clitoris, this tiny power house has over 8000 nerve endings, so imagine how mind blowing your orgasms could be?

Regular internal vibrator use (look at The Smooth One or The Wild One for inspiration) can lead to improved levels of desire and arousal, so it’s a natural libido kick with minimal side effects.

In fact, masturbation can improve your sex life overall. By getting to know what brings you pleasure, you can communicate this much easier with your partner leading to a more enjoyable sex life.

Pain relief

Masturbation has lots of benefits for your overall health. For one, it’s a great pain reliever. The endorphins released during masturbation act directly on your pain receptors to kill pain and hang around for hours afterwards, dulling our overall experience.

This is really good during your period as increasing blood flow to the pelvis can reduce abdominal cramping and back spasms.

Using kegal balls can strengthen your pelvic floor, giving you better control over your bladder and stronger orgasms.

Knowing your body better

People who masturbate are also more likely to be aware of their own sexual health and wellbeing. They are more likely to attend regular STI and smear tests. It means that you know your body better, so can notice changes such as lumps or bumps.

Most of us received sex education which was intensely focused on avoiding pregnancy and STIs… pleasure wasn’t even mentioned!

This means as we’ve grown up, it can be quite difficult to enjoy sex (especially casual sex) without an intrusive image of herpes entering your mind.

When you masturbate, there is no chance of pregnancy and infection is practically impossible, as long as you clean your toys properly.

Kandid are currently offering up to 30% off products for people in isolation .
