Masturbation has been a taboo subject for centuries, but it’s time to talk about the bright side.

The pursuit of pleasure is one of the main objectives of the human being . Men and women live not only from reflection and hard work. Pleasure, in its many facets, is associated with happiness and is (or at least should be) something we should all be looking for.

There are many ways to feel pleasure, including sex, either with other people or with yourself. We will talk about this last possibility today, delving into masturbation and its many positive effects on our physical, psychological and physiological health .

Masturbation: Pleasing yourself has its advantages

Masturbation is a sexual behavior that can be defined as any form of sexual self-pleasure obtained through any type of direct physical stimulation. This sexual behavior is widely practiced, since 95% of men and 63% of women have ever masturbated .

Masturbation as a habitual practice usually begins during  adolescence , with boys starting earlier than girls as a trend, with an average starting age of 14 and 16, respectively. A curious fact is that women tend to masturbate more frequently when they are in a stable relationship, on the other hand, men tend to masturbate more when they lose a romantic relationship and become single again.

This sexual behavior is not specifically human, as it is also seen in other animals , especially mammals.

Historical view of masturbation: religion and taboo

Masturbation has been condemned throughout history , giving it a negative connotation and causing or attributing various physical and mental problems to the people who have practiced it.

Thus, for example, the Christian religion has historically persecuted it, considering it even a worse sin than incest or rape in times past. Culturally, masturbation was considered the cause of health problems such as vision loss or infertility, which science strongly denies. Despite this, in times when information and access to scientific sources was a utopia, people firmly believed that masturbation would bring them severe problems, and therefore repressed their instinct to practice it.

But not only religion has transmitted negativity and generated a cultural taboo towards this sexual behavior: several scientists and health professionals have written extensively about the negative effects of masturbation on the health of people who practice it. For example, Tissot , in 1758, considered masturbation as a cause of brain softening .

This practice was also theorized to be one of the causes of  homosexuality , and Kraepelin explained that masturbation was a symptom of various mental illnesses. Sigmund Freud also wrote about this sexual behavior, and had the theory that masturbation was normal in  childhood , but a symptom of immaturity in adulthood, especially in the case of female masturbation.

Physical and psychological benefits of masturbation

Clinical research has been able to show that masturbation is beneficial both physically and psychologically , and in fact, it is widely used as a technique in  sexual and couples therapy

These are some of the benefits of this practice.

Physical benefits

  • It causes an analgesic effect and can help with menstrual cramps, since it causes a reduction in inflammation of the genital area.
  • It allows to maintain a healthy state of the genitals: it helps to maintain good lubrication in the case of women, and a good reflection of erection and ejaculation in the case of men.
  • Some studies indicate that masturbating helps to strengthen the immune system and prevent infections, due to the higher levels of immunoglobin A that can be observed in people who have more orgasms.

Psychological benefits

  • It helps improve sleep, especially in the case of men, due to the release of  serotonin and opioids.
  • It has a relaxing effect and a feeling of well-being, helping to release both sexual, physiological and psychological tensions.
  • It helps to explore and learn about one’s sexuality, promoting positive attitudes towards sex and genitalia, and being able to improve sexual functioning in the couple.

10 games in bed to share with your partner

A situation of fun and stimulating games for couples to use all the senses.

No one doubts that having a good sexual life as a couple improves the satisfaction of the members of the same. And it is that the connection that is created between both in the intimate moments helps to overcome many delicate moments.

Sex helps us in many ways, it not only gives us pleasure. According to some scientific studies, the benefits of sex are:

  • It helps to reduce stress.
  • It rejuvenates and helps the couple feel younger.
  • Extends life.
  • Improves cardiovascular health.
  • Improves self-esteem and mood by  releasing endorphins.
  • Helps to have a stronger immune system.

You can delve into these benefits and learn some more in this article: “The 13 benefits of having sex, according to science ”

Games in bed to share with your partner

Sexual relationships are truly enjoyable, but as time in the relationship passes and the monotony gains ground, some couples let the flame of passion go out.

Experts recommend that we be creative so that this does not happen. In the following lines you can find a selection of games in bed that will help you activate your sex life again .

1. Sexual temperature

One of the classics of games in bed is playing with the sensations of our body. To do this it is simply necessary to grab an ice cube or have a hot drink.

It is possible to apply ice directly on the body of the person we want to stimulate, or put it in the mouth for a moment (as with a hot drink) so that when practicing oral sex or licking the partner the sensations are different thanks to the cold tongue or hot.

2. The detainee

Another of the classic erotic games consists of handcuffing one of the members of the couple so that he cannot move. In this game, a stoppage or capture is usually simulated.

One of the two members of the couple is tied hands (and feet in many cases) and is at the mercy of the other person who is responsible for giving pleasure. This situation is very encouraging for many.

3. Dice game

The game of dice is a variation of the previous one. It consists of the two members of the couple being assigned different numbers.

One the two even and the other odd. Then a dice is rolled and the person who wins is the one who will be tied for 5 minutes and will receive the pleasure of the couple.

4. Sex flavors

If the sensations of cold heat can be very pleasant, so can the flavors. There is nothing better than being with the person you love and also delighting the palate with chocolate, strawberries or ice cream.

The taste of each person can change, although some classics are smearing parts of the body with chocolate and cleaning them with the tongue . Also eat strawberries and champagne with the partner in an erotic way. The important thing is not to use your hands but everything else.

5. Oil massage

Massages are always pleasant and relaxing, and are ideal for increasing sexual arousal and creating an ideal climate for sexual intercourse. The massage can be carried out in the same bed, where the person who receives it must be comfortable face down.

There are different types of oils with different aromas that produce different sensations. The touch, smell, and feel of the oil can be very stimulating, and a massage is ideal for foreplay in bed .

6. Sex bomb

The sex bomb is a juice in bed that provokes dynamite of pleasure. It is a simple game, which consists of taking a clock and setting a time interval in which it is not allowed to enter. If, for example, the time without penetration is 20 minutes, only caresses, kisses, bites, etc., are allowed until that stipulated time has passed.

7. Choose a piece of paper

A game that can be very erotic and can excite your senses. It consists of taking two jars or jars (for each of the two) in which to put a series of pieces of paper. Different verbs are written on each piece of paper that have to do with sexual and exciting acts, for example, suck, lick, bite, etc. In the other bottle will be the papers with the written parts of the body. The combination of the two pieces of paper will tell you what you should do to your partner so that he or she feels great pleasure.

8. Blindness

Another mythical game is that of blindfolding , because when one cannot see, the other bodily senses are intensified. The operation is simple; blindfold and let the couple do their job to satisfy us. Imagination plays a fundamental role in this game, which is ideal when combined with the detainee’s game.

9. The battle

The bed can be turned into a fighting ring with this game, where it is not necessary to be violent, but it can be fun. The two members of the couple must undress and hold a cushion with which they must start a battle . It’s not about hurting but about having a good time. This can lead to a relaxed atmosphere that can end in love rather than war.

10. What does my mouth taste like?

This game in bed is ideal to combine with the game of blindness. Well, when one of the two members of the couple is blindfolded, then the other places different foods in his mouth: chocolate, ice cream, strawberries, liqueurs, cream, etc.

The goal is for the person who is blindfolded to guess what the other person has in their mouth. If it is not correct, then the person who was not blindfolded will smear his body with the food and the person who has lost has to lick it and clean the body without using his hands.

The pale pink dress boasted spaghetti straps and a long ruffled train that reached the floor.

Victoria took to Instagram on Monday to share two mirror selfies of herself modelling the outfit.

In the caption she teased: ‘Monday morning fitting. New Summer collection for a special occasion x #VBSS23 coming soon!! VB’.

It comes after Victoria cut the prices of hundreds of clothing items in a huge sale amid the reported financial trouble of her company after it reportedly racked up a total of £66.3million of debt since its launch.

For example a green dress in the sale section is down 40 per cent from £990 to £594 while a camel coat is also 40 per cent reduced £1,590 to £954.

A representative for Victoria has been contacted by MailOnline for comment.

It comes after earlier this week it was revealed that the company reportedly has racked up a total of £66.3million of debt since its launch.

The fashion designer launched her fashion label in 2008 with a small collection of dresses. It swiftly grew to an extensive range that now includes handbags, coats, shoes and accessories.

According to The Mirror, the latest accounts for Victoria Beckham Holdings Ltd show it made losses of £5,887,036 in 2021, down from £8,581,944 in 2020.

This means overall losses for the firm now stand at £66.3m since its launch in 2008 and directors of the firm – including Victoria and her husband David – were not paid a dividend.

The study says: ‘The loss for the year, after taxation and minority interests, amounted to £5,887,036 (2020 – loss of £8,581,944

Power couple: Despite the big losses, the Beckham¿s global empire has reportedly doubled its profits - racking in £11.6 million in 2020

‘During the 2021 financial year the ultimate shareholders provided additional loans of £0.6m to the group.’

The luxury fashion business has expanded to Europe and the Middle East, with the annual accounts saying the brand was also expanding into new products, with the launch of leather goods and the VB Body range.

A company spokesperson told MailOnline: ‘The shareholders continue to support and invest in the business for growth. The balance sheet is good, there is no bank debt.’

CEO, Marie Leblanc added: ‘2021 saw the successful repositioning of Victoria Beckham Limited and 2022 is set to be an even stronger year.

‘We have entered a new chapter for the business and our energy is focused on accelerating growth and taking the brand to its full potential.

‘With the successful launch of leather goods in 2022 and the continuous acceleration of sales growth in Beauty, we have high expectations.’

Despite the big losses, the Beckham’s global empire has reportedly doubled its profits. Annual accounts filed with Companies House in London showed the pair made £11.6m in the year ending December 2020 despite the pandemic – compared to £4.5m in 2019.

In accounts submitted in 2021, auditors warned of ‘significant doubt’ about Victoria’s fashion company’s ability to continue operating when it was reported that the company had racked up debts of more than £46 million since it launched.

Friends of the star said at the time that she is determined to continue with her company even though her detractors have dismissed it as a vanity project.

One said: ‘This is what gives Victoria her identity, she loves it and despite its obvious obstacles, she is a grafter and hugely passionate about it.’

In February 2021, it emerged that Mrs Beckham’s beauty range she set up in 2019 had suffered a loss of £4.7 million.

A spokeswoman for Mrs Beckham said: ‘Whilst 2019 was a challenging year, the business halved its losses – a significant step in the road to profitability. The launch of the hugely successful beauty line in the same year helped drive overall revenues up 7% on 2018 and both businesses are focussed on profitable growth.

‘The showcase of the recent AW21 fashion collection has been well-received by fashion critics and the beauty business has seen multiple sell-out products in recent months.’

A company spokesperson told MailOnline: 'The shareholders continue to support and invest in the business for growth. The balance sheet is good, there is no bank debt'

My M-sized boobs won’t stop growing because of a rare condition

An OnlyFans model fears her M-cup breasts won’t stop growing because of a rare condition.

Pamelia James, 27, of Melbourne in Australia, claims her gigantomastia has caused her to go up four bra sizes — or 31cm (12 inches) — in just one year.

The mother-of-one sought medical help in March for her back, neck and shoulder pain.

She also noticed her chest was growing rapidly when her most-worn bra no longer fit.

A rare condition called gigantomastia has caused Australian Pamelia J’s boobs to grow four bra cup sizes to an M-cup, and they won’t stop growing (Pictured: Pamelia now)

A doctor suggested her issues were due to the weight of her breasts and referred her for follow-up care.

Miss James, a mother-of-one, was eventually diagnosed with gigantomastia, also called breast hypertrophy or macromastia.

The condition is benign (non-cancerous) but can cause debilitating breast, back, neck and shoulder pain, among other symptoms.

As of 15 years ago, fewer than 110 cases of the condition had ever been published in medical literature.

The condition caused Miss James’ boobs to grow to an M-cup, with her bust growing from 100cm (39 inches) last January, to 114cm (45 inches) by July and now sitting at 131cm (52 inches).

She said it has left her with massive physical and mental discomfort.

Miss James said her mental health has suffered as a result of the condition as people give her ‘dirty looks’, so she tends to stay at home.

The OnlyFans content creator said: ‘It is very uncomfortable — they are so heavy and I can be in a lot of pain.

In January last year, her bust was 100cm but just seven months later it had grown to 114cm (Pictured: Pamelia before the excessive breast growth)

 

And now Pamelia's chest measures 131cm - causing her massive physical and mental discomfort (Pictured: Pamelia before the excessive breast growth)

‘At first it was fun and interesting to see how much they were growing, but recently I’ve grown to be uncomfortable and I find myself wishing I had normal-sized breasts.

‘I struggle to find clothing to suit my bust and I end up just wearing oversized t-shirts. There are very limited options for bigger-busted women, especially if you don’t want to have your cleavage on show.

‘I feel very self-conscious when going out in public. If I wear something that is tight on my chest, I notice women giving me looks.

‘I feel like I’m getting dirty looks for having such large breasts so I tend to stay at home — my mental health has suffered from it.’

Annie Turner-Hawkins, a 66-year-old fetish model from the US, holds the Guinness World Record for the largest natural breasts (102ZZZ).

She also has gigantomastia and has spoken out about the struggles of having such large boobs — which weigh 30kg (66lbs) each.

Ms Turner-Hawkins previously said she has to ask herself ‘who is going to attack me today’ when she goes out.

Gigantomastia is thought to be caused by a range of factors, including hormonal changes, medications and autoimmune diseases.

Miss James also has polycystic ovary syndrome — abnormal hormone levels that cause irregular periods and for the ovaries to become enlarged. She is undergoing testing to see if the two conditions could be related.

She said her best option is to get a breast reduction, which she hopes to get at some point this year.

She has a seven-year-old son but would like to have another baby before undergoing the surgery.

There is a chance her breasts may grow back to their current size after the reduction but Miss James is looking forward to having some of her discomforts eased.

She has been using the social media site TikTok to share her experience as she hadn’t yet seen people post about gigantomastia.

She hopes sharing her story will encourage people to think twice before passing judgement on her appearance.

Miss James said: ‘The online reaction has been surprisingly positive overall and I’ve had a lot of women sharing their experience with getting a reduction.

‘Of course, you get the odd rude comment.

‘But for the most part, I feel that it’s opened people’s eyes to what gigantomastia is — it is a very rare condition so most people don’t know about it.

‘I’d like people to do research before giving an opinion on the way that I look. It is uncomfortable and it is not easy to have gigantomastia.’

What is gigantomastia?

Gigantomastia sees breast tissue quickly become abnormally enlarged.

The condition is usually diagnosed when the breasts weigh more than three per cent of the total body weight.

It is thought to be caused by a heightened sensitivity to female hormones prolactin, oestrogen and progesterone – or an abnormally elevated level of these hormones in the blood, or both.

Sometimes it occurs naturally in pregnancy, but usually the breasts shrink again a few months after the baby is born.

Breast reduction surgery is commonly offered to most patients, in order to reduce the size of their breasts to be more proportional to their body.

Surgeons say it can reduce discomfort in the back, neck and shoulders, while also improve sleep quality and help with insecurities.

Studies have repeatedly shown the condition, which often develops in adolescence, can be detrimental to the mental health of teen girls.

Figures are unclear as to how common the condition is, however it has been branded rare in various medical reports.
