[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,

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

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

OIW - Book Cover Design Seminar

On May 22nd, I went to a seminar on book cover design. Before the information was presented on design, the author of Imposter Bride, Nancy Richler , read part of her first chapter and the story sounds intriguing. Lately, I am preferring to read the work of other Ottawa-area authors. Perhaps someday it will be my book that they read in turn. Currently, I am reading The Crimson Man by Patricia K McCarthy and though it is not in my genre, it is a fiery read. Ladies, you'll enjoy it. So far it feels heated like 50 Shades of Grey, but with more substance and a higher level of writing skill. At the beginning of the meeting, announcements were made about newly published works by members of the Ottawa Independent Writers group. The Autism Story is written as fiction by a university professor that specializes in the area. It sounds interesting as well. Nancy Richler answered questions about publishing after she completed her reading. Here is what I took from it: 1. Avoid small pr
