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,

Hanna "Semi Precious" Murphy

A legend in the roller derby community is gone. How and why, I do not know. What I do know is that many are reeling from the news, myself included. 
Hanna was known for big hits and a brilliant personality. I experienced her hits first hand as she sent me flying a number of times. Then she'd smile and make sure I wasn't hurt. 
I stumbled onto this clip on Youtube from 2012 and I think it shows Hanna as many knew her.
She was a force off the track too.
As a cofounder of the award-winning Top Shelf Distillers, she gave much to the surrounding Ottawa Valley community.  
Hanna was a relatively petite woman and it was she who taught me that I could be mighty despite my size. I wouldn't be the woman I am today if I hadn't had the pleasure and the privilege of sharing the track with her. 
I'm shocked. I'm sad. I'm upset I'll never see her or speak to her again.

Change is in the Air

I've been making a lot of changes lately around my home and some of them might seem a little odd, but they're making me happy. One thing I've done is taken apart my dining table. I never eat in there or have people over to eat. It was just another horizontal surface that would collect things like receipts, odd screws from various projects, and countless piles of paper. I had been frustrated because of the clutter it encouraged, but also because I didn't have a space for my Yamaha keyboard. I had been trying to use my keyboard in the living room, but it felt too cluttered and it wasn't sitting at the right height. With it now in my dining room, I was able to relocate my storage bench, which happens to be the perfect height to sit at while playing my keyboard. I now have much more breathing room. There is still a lot of mess to handle here yet, but I'm making solid progress. A lot of people suggest the bedroom is the place to start when decluttering, but I haven&…

Feeling My Age - ROW80 2020 R1-4

I've reached the age where my body has decided to have issues. Not constantly, but frequently. Sprinting for a bus can leave me with an injured ankle simply from using it, not from actually twisting it in ways it shouldn't move, just a fairly normal activity. I guess I need to warmup and stretch before walking to the bus now. About a decade ago, I was given a guard for my teeth due to grinding. And for the next month, I need to sleep with wrist braces because my doctor thinks I'm developing carpal tunnel. Really, I'm surprised it hasn't happened before now given my level of computer use. My mom had it years ago and had to have surgery. From reading books of all things. Anyway, he thinks if I sleep with braces on that it may be enough to keep it at bay because the nerves will get 7-8 hours of rest. After 4 days and nights, the tingling has been reducing, so I'm hopeful.
