It's doctor recommended.

If you’ve ever had an orgasm—and we sure as hell hope you have—then you know just how ~magical~ it is. I’m sure many of you can agree that very few things are as satisfying as the Big O. That’s why Cosmo is a huge advocate of masturbation.

Masturbation lets you explore your body and makes you more confident in your sexuality. And apart from momentarily taking us to heaven, masturbation (and as a result, orgasms) can actually ease the pain and discomfort we experience from our monthly cycle. Esqueeze me?


Sex therapist Judith Golden asserts, “The strength and intensity of an orgasm can relieve cramps. The hormones released during sexual excitement can also help.” Plus, you develop a higher tolerance for pain when you’re experiencing an orgasm so we highly recommend this awesome miracle cure.

Unfortunately, there’s still a lot of stigma when it comes to women embracing their sexual side. Frankly, it’s unfair and archaic. Masturbation is normal, and obviously, it has a lot of biological benefits. 

So the next time your period comes, ditch the heating pad, turn to your battery-operated boyfriend, and love yourself.
