HAPPY MASTURBATION MONTH! CELEBRATE & MASTURBATE! “Sex energy is the life force, and my body doesn’t care if it’s me with my electric vibrator and a dildo, or a lover’s tongue, hand…. Once we embrace masturbation, we can have all the sex we want on our own terms with someone we love and who will never abandon us.” – Betty Dodson
When you enter a Tulip boutique in Chicago, one of the first things you’ll see is the word Masturbate. Whether it’s our chalkboard “Tulip says, Masturbate!”, or our Masturbate Tanks & Totes, we are serious, and loud, about masturbation. Tulip believes in every person’s right to masturbate as much as they want. We talk about masturbation a lot because self-love, self exploration and self-pleasure are healthy human instinct, and should be a meaningful and crucial part of safe-sex education. When we teach a masturbation workshop or talk to customers, we often refer to Betty Dodson, sex educator and author of “Sex for One.” One of our favorite quotes from her Masturbation Manifesto is, “Sex energy is the life force, and my body doesn’t care if it’s me with my electric vibrator and a dildo, or a lover’s tongue, hand…. Once we embrace masturbation, we can have all the sex we want on our own terms with someone we love and who will never abandon us.”
Orgasms and Masturbation have physical and emotional health benefits such as better sleep, increasing self-esteem, reducing migraines, boosting the immune system and more. The ecstasy an orgasm brings by the at least 8,000 nerve-endings in our genitals all sending pleasure signals at once to the brain which bursts with endorphins and oxytocin while shutting down the fear and behavior control centers: Orgasms cause us to feel pure bliss while temporarily losing control and feeling no fear.
Masturbation and self-exploration can absolutely enhance relationships with a partner too.
Masturbation sessions can help: experience orgasm by exploring what feels good for you, gain expert control of orgasms, have multiple orgasms, experience more orgasms and better orgasms with your partner, and more.
Giving your partner a masturbation show or masturbating together can help each other learn more about what the other likes.. and can be a seriously hot experience too..
With all of that said, masturbate as much as you’d like, however you’d like, and we encourage you to be loud about it too!!! Loving, exploring, and nurturing yourself and being healthy is something to be very proud of :)
