[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

ROW80 2020 R4 - GOALS

I've gotten zero writing done recently, however, I had other pressing things.  HOME As my new bed frame was due for arrival last Friday (more on this later), I hauled ass and purged a bunch more stuff from my home. I brought a full carload to donation and started loading up again. I also dealt with my old mattress, which I'm repurposing for a couch. Now, I didn't fully complete it as I haven't figured out all the pieces, but I did get it cut up appropriately and moved out of my bedroom. I'm currently sewing it back together. As for my bedroom, I was able to do a major declutter and access areas I haven't been able to in months. But that area now has bathroom stuff in it. There is more to do, but I'm really happy with my progress of late. I've cut myself numerous times on the couch project including my heel finding a tiny piece of glass, my palm finding a wayward staple, my knuckle finding who knows what, my one thumb having a run in with a box cutter, an

Catching My Breath - 2020 ROW80 R3-C6

 I've tried writing this post numerous times, but I needed a break. A long one. I've been mega stressed out and depressed, so I have been taking a little breather. I was feeling broken, but the experience has forced me to slow down and relax. I've gotten some help including medication for it and I am feeling much better. I'm feeling like myself more with each passing day. I'm sleeping better and have energy again.  I have been reducing my social media time. Especially Facebook. Actually, I enjoy Instagram much more. FITNESS I've been scooting and I'm getting back into skating. It's often hard to get out because of rain. Eventually, I want to do tricks on my skates. This skater may not be in derby anymore, but she's still a skater ;) I have a ton of plans for cross training once winter is here. I'll be hitting up outdoor rinks if they are available, but I'm also going to work on off skate skills that will help me get to doing tricks later on.
