[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,

A Lot of Bullspit - 2020 ROW80 R3-W5

This week has had a lot of bullspit in it. Shortly after my last trip to buy reno supplies, I discovered mold in my bathroom. While that's not shocking, it's pretty much because they appear to have left wet drywall in the wall and covered the wall with another layer of drywall instead of properly repairing it after a leak. Geniuses. This is a mixed bag. It means I may have to do the tub area sooner than I expected. It is the same wall as the annoying peeling paint, so that's kind of good. I may just need to replace much of the wall, which is about 1.5 drywall boards because it's a small room. Cost wise, the wall repair isn't so bad. I'm not looking forward to having to deal with it, but I acquired the PPE gear for it and the mold removal supplies. Now, here's where the project may change substantially. I was originally planning to install a tub surround over the tile and then use the Rust Oleum tub restore stuff, but if there is mold in the wall, it's li

My DRAWING course is done. I was happy to be learning it, but I am looking forward to not having graded assignments. After this, I will continue another course I started, which is entirely self-paced. I'll continue sharing my drawings on my Instagram: @thewritebuttons   On the HOME front, I have made a lot of progress on my couch project. Really, it will be a loveseat. I finished the sewing portion of the seat section, the wood base, and have nearly finished the wood back for it. I've added wheels to it instead of legs because I want to be able to move it for easy cleaning. Today, I am working on the sewing of the back piece. I acquired all the hardware I needed for attaching everything. I will have a wood skirt to do, which will help everything stay in place. I also have the sofa cover for it, though I will still have to figure out the arms. I'm taking a break on the sewing until thimbles come later this week because I'm tired of pricking my fingers.  As far as MUSIC

Slumps

Image by Ulrike Mai For quite awhile, I was stuck in nearly every area of my life. I couldn't even think up ways to get unstuck. And I was sleeping terribly, so perhaps there is a connection there. Recently, I became unstuck. I don't know how or why, but lately I see a problem and can think up a work around in seconds. I may not have the energy to execute it, but at least I am getting the ideas for when I do have the energy. Maybe it's because I started a gratitude journal or because I'm beginning to see the light at the end of my renovation tunnel. It could be the hope I've felt since the inauguration happened. Who knows, maybe it's coffee. Speaking of renovations, there has been some slight progress on the bathroom front. They took measurements and will hopefully have materials soon. I don't know when, but hopefully soon. I had a look at the floor I was originally going to get and it wasn't available anymore. The one that was just like it had a pattern
