Week 8-Do people masturbate more or less when they are in a relationship?

October 17, 2008

To receive the weekly question per text, text FACTS to 90999.  

Studies suggest that people continue to masturbate while in relationships and enjoy the pleasure of both coupled sex and personal sexual satisfaction. Some research even shows masturbating frequently can lead to a more satisfying sex life, because of the resulting familiarity with one’s body.  

Masturbation does not have to be a solo performance! It is a great option for couples who have varying levels of sexual interest and many couples include it as part of their sexual activities together. Masturbation can be unhealthy if it replaces sex between a couple.

Planned Parenthood of Northern New England’s Education Department carefully selects all weekly questions. All questions are actual inquiries made to PPNNE by college-aged students.
