Here’s a New Year’s resolution you can get behind – pleasuring yourself more often.

Science has shown that self pleasuring can provide plenty of health benefits. Men’s Health magazine says it helps prevent cancer. It ups your immunity. And it boosts
your mood.

Masturbating releases a ton of feel-good neurochemicals like dopamine and oxytocin that lift your spirits, boost your satisfaction, and activate the reward circuits in your brain.

An orgasm is the biggest non-drug blast of dopamine available, say researchers. A brain scan of someone having a self-induced orgasm looks like a heroin addict’s.
