May brings with it the beginning of winter, when animals start to ready themselves for hibernation, and the air is suddenly crisper and cooler and the colours change from green to orange. Since nature seems to be getting ready to stay indoors and practise self-love, it makes sense that May is Masturbation Month. We’re sure most fans of self-pleasure would agree, winter is the best time of year for staying under the covers and getting in touch with yourself.
Launched in 1995, the unofficial sex-positive holiday has gained popularity since its inception 24 years ago. The holiday provides a unique opportunity to get people talking about self-love and encourage conversations about sexual wellness – it’s all about expressing your sexuality and embracing yourself. And if that wasn’t enough motivation, experts say that masturbation relieves anxiety and helps you sleep, so… you know…
The health benefits of masturbation are often not highlighted (due to social tabooes, or whatever the reason may be), but giving yourself a hand (or lending a hand to a partner) can help reduce stress, promote good sleep, and release endorphins, amongst many other pros!
While it is true that you don’t really need anything to enjoy some one-on-one time with yourself, local online store Secret Corner wants to help the guys out this month by introducing you to a handful of products that can enhance your time alone or with your partner – because, of course, masturbation doesn’t need to be a one-player game.
We’ve picked a few items that can make that one-on-one time, or some fun couple play, a whole lot sweeter:
