Not only do orgasms feel good, nay great, there are actually many health benefits should you need reminding of. All the more reason to get busy, whether it be you doing it partnered or solo!
Kate Moyle, sex expert for sexual wellness brand, LELO has said orgasms help everything from sleep to pain. “There are many benefits of an orgasm ranging from neurochemical boosts which combat the stress hormone cortisol, it can aid sleep with the release of oxytocin, vasopressin, and prolactin, and they can even be a form of natural pain release.”
Mental health can also benefit from you feeling those orgasm waves. “Making orgasms part of your self-care routine can be hugely beneficial, making yourself feel good both phsycically and psychologically,” says Kate.
“Building a sensual relationship with yourself, whether it be a bath, taking time to moisturise through to self-pleasure are ways of nurturing the relationship with your body and learning what you like both sensually and sexually.”
Learning what you enjoy and how you enjoy sensuality is key in making your orgasm mind-blowing. “Orgasms are a brain, body, and mind experience. learning how to relax, feel comfortable and experience pleasure alongside knowing what types of stimulation you enjoy is all part of the process,” adds Kate.
“Context is key, for example when we feel stressed that distraction can interrupt sex versus when we are aroused it can happen very eaily. Sex toys can be a great way to offer more stimulation in a different way to offer more stimulation in a different or more intense way, so getting to know yourself and your body is very important.”
