Masturbation is not only pleasant, but also extremely healthy, says sexologist and director of education for the Satisfyer brand, Megwyn White.


The main ideas and messages include that Sexual health is for everyone regardless of their gender identity, socioeconomic background, age or gender and abilities. Each of their products is thought out to the last detail and in the final it looks more like a design accessory, which, by combining technological innovations and sexual health, brings customers pleasant experiences that affect all the senses.

We talked about masturbation and sexual wellness with Megwyn White, who is not only the director of education at the Satisfyer brand, but also a sexologist and certified coach who runs her practice in New York.

Megwyn, many statistics confirm that female masturbation is no longer such a shameful secret, but instead becomes an important part of mental health and physical well-being. How do you perceive it?

Yes, sure. Masturbation is not only pleasant, but also extremely healthy and is actually one of the safest ways to strengthen a positive connection with yourself. At the same time, it is beneficial in reducing stress, promoting overall health and well-being. The sense of shame that exists about this topic stems mainly from the cultural conditionality and inequality that exists between men and women, mainly due to the lack of education in the field of sexual health and anatomy of women. Other benefits of masturbation include better sleep, pain relief, increased self-confidence and a reduced risk of inflammation. The strongest ability of masturbation is to completely turn off the mind and raise the overall health of the body.

Masturbation is not just a substitute for regular sex, but an important part of our lives. Is this different for people who are single or on the contrary? How important is this, even in a relationship?

Masturbation is essentially about engaging our body for enjoyment. Because no one really knows our body better than we do. It can really be considered a practice that grows over time. A study from Portugal, published for the Journal of sex and marital therapy, showed that self-satisfaction is not only quite common among women, but also that women who masturbate more often experienced greater overall satisfaction in their sex lives. There is no doubt that masturbation can increase sexual self-confidence and the ability to express one’s own desire. By this I mean, for example, easier initiation of intimate relationships, frequency of sexual fantasies and less difficulty with sexual arousal or even relief from psychological inhibitions in intimate matters.

Most women need some form of clitoral stimulation to achieve orgasm, and 90% of a woman’s genitals are natural, so it is natural that masturbation, for example with a vibrator, is a viable way to achieve a woman’s pleasure. Research from the Journal of Sexual Medicine, already mentioned, suggests that using a vibrator offers an enhanced experience and can really improve sexual function. This is true even if you are not single. Masturbation can also be one of the best ways to improve an intimate moment with a partner. It is even very beneficial for couples to practice so-called mutual masturbation. It’s a great way to find out about each other, what you enjoy, what you love. It can also be an incredibly erotic affair, thanks to which you can push your boundaries again and get to know what not only your body wants, but also your partner’s body.

Has the pandemic and the fact that we have spent the last more than a year at home contributed to greater interest in sexual wellness? Do you think people are more interested in sexual health than before?

The pandemic taught us all to slow down and focus on ourselves. Social isolation can cause us great stress, because as a social creature we need to communicate regularly with others. At this time, we had to reduce the positive touch in the form of a handshake, a hug or an occasional pat on the back. The touch deficit, along with other challenges posed by the pandemic, led more people to a source of their own pleasure, which was primarily rest of the body and reduction of stress.

I will point out again one research – Harris Poll with Satisfyer, in which more than 25% of Americans reported an increase in masturbation in their sex lives during a pandemic. Sexual health is generally becoming a human priority because it affects all aspects of health. This can now be seen mainly due to the worldwide reduction of sexual taboo and innovation for the widest audience, which is experiencing the benefits of having a lot of sexual health products on the market.

Of course, research and science confirm the benefits of using these products for our enjoyment. It is only a matter of time before more women feel comfortable talking openly about the experiences and explorations of these sexual aids. When shopping, women mainly need to feel safe, which is why at Satisfyer we also focus on design innovation with regard to the woman’s perspective.

Do you have a lot of women around the world around you, talking about masturbation and in this form let’s say more self-love than before, they need to talk about it? How does Satisfyer give women that freedom?

Many women’s voices are finally shared thanks to the Internet, which offers the opportunity to share their views without any shame. It’s so easy nowadays, because if you have a question, you can just google it without having to risk being ashamed of asking someone. The possibility of being anonymous via the Internet has, of course, given rise to many new dialogues on sexual health issues, which help to make sexuality as a topic quite common. Women want to know how masturbation and self-care can benefit in all aspects of life, and most importantly, they like to learn from others.

Satisfyer is actively involved in improving sex education information based on overall pleasure and health benefits. The main effort is therefore mainly to deviate from the stereotypical idea that these are only so-called “sex toys”. We want people to realize that these are mainly products related to sexual wellness. This change has helped us get closer to the consumer and establish a conversation with each other. This gives us a greater opportunity to innovate these products with greater sensitivity and ingenuity.

Would you recommend something specific for women, and therefore perhaps not only them, to enjoy sexual wellness and enjoy it as much as possible? How to best tune and relax.

Above all, sexual freedom requires that we cultivate and improve our sense of desire, through the examination of our bodies and more open communication about our sexual selves, no matter who we may be. It is necessary to get rid of our old prejudices and shame that limits our pleasure. This can take a long time and, above all, it requires us to be patient with ourselves. Our body is like a lens through which we perceive all things, including pleasure. In many ways, sexual pleasure is a veil through which we can experience endless pleasure.

Let masturbation be an important part of your life to reach your own sexual potential. Give yourself pleasure products that will help you get to know your body better and activate the unknown.
