[caption id="attachment_4712" align="alignleft" width="300"]tgif Image created using Bit Strips.[/caption]

It's Frisky Friday and I wanted to give you something fun to read. It's likely NSFW, so you've been warned.

Today's post is about masturbation. A taboo subject that is completely normal and healthy in most cases.

There are pros and cons to masturbating. Masturbation has had a conflicting history for something so natural. Some religions still see it as a sinful practice. There are a lot of other animals that masturbate using a wide variety of methods.

Pros

  1. Orgasms release endorphin, which is the happy and feel-good chemical. This is beneficial for reducing stress, anxiety, pain, and sadness.

  2. In men, it freshens the sperm which is thought to improve the chances of making babies. This happens with regular sex too. Couples that are having difficult conceiving are no longer told to abstain from sex.

  3. It's a natural human instinct.

  4. It's a mostly safe way to release sexual frustration that doesn't lead to unwanted pregnancies or sexually transmitted infections.

  5. Improve muscle fitness in the pelvic region.

  6. It *can* make you a better lover if you use it right.


Cons

  1. Some people can become addicted and they are at risk of rubbing themselves raw.

  2. Many religious orders feel it is sinful. If you're religious, it might make you feel bad.

  3. Semen stains floors as noted by this school. It probably took a long time though and if they aimed better, it wouldn't happen at all.

  4. You could get a urinary tract infection if your hands aren't clean and you spend too much time touching one area. On UTIs in men. Women more commonly get UTIs and this can happen from frequent intercourse as well from a combination of irritating the urethra and bacteria getting places they don't belong.


A Brief History of Masturbation

Other Animals That Masturbate

  1. Cetaceans: A dolphin masturbates using dead fish.

  2. Other primates: Here's a monkey gripping his own wood.

  3. Turtles: Wall, shell, who can really tell the difference?

  4. Bats: Here's a bat giving himself a suck.

  5. Squirrels: But will any old branch do?

  6. Walruses: Here's a walrus playing just the tip.

  7. Rhinos: Rocks can be fun, but they're probably just scratching an actual itch.

  8. Birds: Here's a budgie rubbing one out.

  9. Dogs: Man's best friend giving himself a little touch.

  10. Bears: Well they do spend a lot of time alone...

  11. Elephants: At least he remembered the rubber?

  12. Cats: When they feel like putting the effort in...

  13. Kangaroos: He *could* be cleaning it... Right?

  14. Hedgehogs: What a great way to wake up!

  15. Koalas: It could just be really into scratching itself...

  16. Rabbits: A friend of mine had a rabbit that loved its stuffed animals.


Conclusion

Masturbation is a normal and healthy activity to engage in as long as it makes you feel good. Even babies do it in the womb. Don't neglect your other activities and practice good hygiene before and after. Moderation masturbation is fun!

I hope you enjoyed this installment of Frisky Friday. Have a fantastic weekend!

Salut,

The Gauntlet That Was October

I had a lot of things happen in October. I watched Frankenstein in the cemetery with friends. I had tea with a friend. I started a new sport: curling. This is really fun and I'm enjoying the level of activity it provides and all the strategic elements. I'll do a separate post on it soon. Unfortunately, soon after my first game, I came down with Covid and so did the friend who I had tea with, so I think we both caught it at the place we went to. That wasn't fun. I already posted about that. I was fortunate to be free of it in time to attend Can-Con where I took in lots of panels, saw some of the wonderful writer community, bought many new books, and volunteered to help out in the rooms. The following weekend, I went to the livestream for Danielle Allard's new album release, followed by the in person release. As part of this, she has a 6 video series that releases every Sunday on her YouTube at 1:15 PM EDT. Video number 2, Falling Into Place, is one that I feel fortunate

Under Siege

My city is under attack. I wish I was being facetious.  The so-called "freedom" convoy is here and so far this is what has transpired: 1. They parked on the war memorial. These people who call themselves patriots. This is where the Unknown Soldier rests. This is where Corporal Nathan Cirullo lost his life in October of 2014. The cars were towed, but who knows what actual repercussions they will face. 2. Later, when asked to move away from memorial, one stood and jumped on the tomb itself while others cheered.  3. Despite having port-a-potties provided for by the mayor, they've been defecating on Parliament Hill, in snowbanks, and on streets nearby.  4. Flags being flown include the Confederate flag of the United States, Trump flags, the Quebec equivalent to the Confederate flag, upside down Canada flags, regular Canada flags, Fuck Trudeau flags, libertarian flags, and ones adorned with swastikas. Yeah, this is totally about freedom rather than racism, white su

2023 - Week 40

I felt a touch rough on Monday. After exchanging some shoes, I needed electrolytes. The heat with the egg thing made me a bit nauseus. I had lots of fluids before having noodles for dinner. That made me feel better. When Tuesday came about, I was looking forward to what I might be learning at GSL curling in the evening. I was also excited to being on the ice as a break from the unseasonal heat. It's spooky season! It's supposed to be a cool and cuddly time. We should be wearing hoodies (or bunny hugs if you prefer). Instead, I was sweating in jeans as I simply walked from my condo building to my car. Wednesday's plan was streaming, but I also hoped to fit an exchange at Home Depot in as I got the wrong shelf size for a project. Really, my original plan for something didn't work, so I was choosing to go a different way. I did stream, but I didn't get to Home Depot. Thursday featured work followed by packing for my spooky weekend away with friends. I got my oil and my
