It’s that time of year again where Emojibator and MasturbationMonth.com invite you to share in 31 Days of Self Love in celebration of International Masturbation Month. For our third year running, we offer readers 31 days of tips, how-tos, stories, and an in-depth look at masturbation from contributors often under-represented in the media.
This year might be even more significant than years past seeing as no matter your race, gender, sexual or religious identity, everyone on our planet has been instructed to stay home on COVID-19 quarantine. Sexual health affects everyone and masturbation does not discriminate as a way to escape the mundane, relieve stress, and self-satisfy. As we stare into our computers and phones, chatting with our loved ones from afar, browsing our favorite smut sites, and ingesting our media from the world wide web, we truly are more connected than ever as we live through what will arguably be the most significant event of our lifetime.
It’s no coincidence that the sexual wellness industry has seen a surge in demand. Consumers are catching on that in addition to balancing mood and reducing anxiety, masturbation has been shown to keep brain functions sharp and focused, help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, and decrease the risk of catching a cold or the flu by activating cells known to fight off illness and infectious diseases.
It’s time to wise up. In a recent survey, 70% of adults reported they still wanted sex-ed, in large part due to a lack of knowledge. 92% of respondents had never learned about sex positions, sex toys, gender and sexual identity, how to access local sexual health resources, and literally...how to have sex. Only 30% of respondents reported they had any form of sex ed (through school, or online education, as opposed to learning from porn or a friend). This site serves to fill in the gaps where traditional sex-ed has failed.
Sexual Wellness = Healthy Society.
Masturbation is a natural and safe way to explore your body, feel pleasure, and release built-up sexual tension. People of all backgrounds, genders, and races can experience the countless benefits of masturbation and orgasm.
Did you know that orgasms are healthy?
Orgasms reduce stress.
Orgasms improve sleep and relaxation by increasing oxytocin and vasopressin in the body.
Orgasms boost your immune system by increasing the number of "killer" cells called leukocytes.
Orgasms can make you look younger by stimulating collagen production, which makes skin healthy, clear, and glowing.
Orgasms reduce period cramps.
Orgasms improve prostate health.
Shortly after we started Emojibator, we realized we had a platform to spread sexual health education to a new audience and to disrupt the taboos around female masturbation. When support came rolling in from vibrator sales, like-minded brands, influencers, and fans from over 50 countries, we realized we were not alone in this mission. Along with countless sex-positive organizations paving the way and connected as ever in 2020, we are a part of a sexual revolution.
Over the next 31 days of May, we hope you keeping coming, and coming back for daily how-tos, sex-positive health education, tips & tricks, an in-depth look at fetishes, and mindful masturbation. We believe this knowledge will lead to enhanced sex, improved health, and overall higher quality of life--and who wouldn’t want that?
As always, our door is always open and you can reach out to us for questions or comments at firstname.lastname@example.org.
