Britain's NIH has hordes of nay-saying conservatives up in arms over its recently published "Pleasure" paper which offers teens and young adults advice by which they might achieve a more fulfilling sex life.
The quote "an orgasm a day keeps the doctor away" had half the medical community up in arms over the fact that funding was allocated to these 'medically unproven' practices aimed at improving health and well-being. Well, as far as I knew, stress reduction, hormonal stabilization and physical release were certainly beneficial to a cortisol poisoned populace.
In fact, regular orgasm is a wonderful way to stay in tune with one's body, to sleep more soundly and to enjoy the elation of seratonin and oxytocin. Muscular contractions and increased heart rate are beneficial to the being. Increased blood flow to your skin is great for your glow. The feeling of an orgasm is unparalleled. Knowing how to orgasm is important for anyone of sexual maturity who hopes to enjoy a sexually fulfilling life.
So, I ask these folk, who would prefer burying their heads in the sand and denying that previous attempts to ignore frank talk about masturbation as an alternative means of sexual release, how on earth can the country with the highest unwanted pregnancy rates in all of Western Europe not embrace any alternate means of communicating a healthy sex mantra to its young?
