In Australia, health authorities launch campaign in favor of … masturbation

Australian health authorities want to encourage masturbation with a recently launched social media campaign. An initiative that relieves guilt.

Masturbation is still taboo, and yet: this healthy activity, free and accessible to all is as good for the body as it is for the mind. Thus, it has been proven: masturbation is a bulwark against pain (especially during menstruation), improves the couple’s sexual life (because we know our body better) and fights depression (in particular: against seasonal depression). In short, there is no question of depriving yourself of it!

Precisely: to encourage the practice of masturbation, Australian health authorities have just launched a rather original campaign on social networks. Called “Give yourself a hand” (“give yourself a hand” in French), this hyper-modern campaign notably appeared on Facebook this Wednesday, November 3, 2021.

Normal, healthy activity … and good for your health

Stop the guilt! Because it is the Australian health authorities who say it: “masturbation is a normal and healthy activity that is part of everyone’s sexual experience and is a great way to find out what makes us feel good (…). It is therefore essential to normalize masturbation in order to reduce the feelings of shame and fear that are still associated with it.

This campaign (which is now expected in France!) Also gives advice to parents on addressing the issue of masturbation with their children and adolescents.

On average, according to a survey published in August 2021, men masturbate 140 times a year against “only” 53 times a year for women. Shall we get started?
