Masturbation also fights urinary tract infections by flushing out the cervix. For post-menopausal women, a narrowing of the vagina can make pelvic exams and intercourse painful, but masturbation, particularly with a water-based lubricant, increases blood flow to the sex organs. This can help relieve moisture problems and prevent the narrowing of the vagina. Masturbation can also improve your sex life. Self love allows both sexes to become more familiar with their bodies and pleasure centers.

Sex is great, but it doesn't need to be the only way you experience your sexuality. Sometimes, you just want immediate sexual fulfillment without having to account for anyone else -- pure, unfiltered "me time. Sex helps you grow as a lover, teaching you how to respond to someone else's body and desires, and it can help you grow much, much closer to your partner.
When it comes to getting it on, you've probably established a few tried-and-true routines. But a healthy sex life means experimenting every now and then — not just with a partner, but during masturbation, too. This will not only increase eroticism, but can help make your orgasms more powerful. So what can you do to spice up your next solo sex session?
