The world isn't doing so well right now. 🤒
First things first, please know aren't trying to make light of world events, but more share some information on how you can be healthier than most horses. COVID-19 has us all on edge and if there's one thing we know helps with stress, its jerking off. 🍑
Want to know something exciting? Masturbation DOES HELP With your immune system.
Let’s talk about pleasure pathways. 🧠
These pathways release incredibly neurochemicals/hormones such as dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin, which help balance cortisol levels! Cortisol is a stress-inducing hormone, which limits the capacity of our immune system - so Masturbation tells our stress levels to chill, and allow for the immune system to thrive! 😊
Masturbation helps with sleep - pleasure pathways help with muscle regeneration and aid in a calmer state of mind. Rest is vital when feeling unwell! 😴
Habitual behavior boosts your immune system. So if you have an active sex/masturbation life, these behaviours support active and continual developments of hormones, which in turn supports a dynamic and developed immune system. 💪
Lastly, masturbation can boost your white blood cell count! According to Dr. Jennifer Landa, a hormone-therapy specialist, Masturbation can produce the right kind of environment for a strengthened immune system to thrive. 🌳
A study conducted by the Department of Medical Psychology at the University Clinic of Essen (in Germany) showed similar results. A group of volunteers were asked to participate in a study that would look at the effects of orgasm through masturbation on the white blood cell count and the immune system.
During this experiment, the white blood cell count of each participant was analyzed through measures that were taken 5 minutes before and 45 minutes after climax from masturbation. 🎆
The results confirmed that sexual arousal and orgasm increased the number of white blood cells, particularly the natural killer cells that help fight off infections ⚔️. Cool, right?!
