New Facts about Masturbation

           Masturbation is a form of  autoerotism characterized by sexual  arousal though manipulation or stimulation of a knowledge of sex organs , especially the penis and clitoris. The act is usually accompanied by sexual fantasies and may involve the use of a mechanical device.

           Masturbating can give a good feeling and it can make  the person sexually excited enough  to have an orgasm. Various studies show that more than 90 percent of males and 85 percent of females use this technique of self arousal. There are different ways of masturbating. Boys and men often hold the shaft of their  penis in their hand  and move their hand rhythmically up and down.

           Girls and women may use their fingers or hand  to rub their clitoris. Some people masturbate their sexual partner by doing this for them.

           Babies and small children explore  and fondle  their bodies quite naturally and with no shame at all, and would continue to do so. As they grow up, they receive strong message from parents and others that is not an acceptable sex behavior. They receive a scolding.  As they develop a sense of propriety, masturbation becomes a secret activity and sometimes stop altogether.

           Some men masturbate by stroking and fondling the shaft  and head of the penis, or by squeezing gently and then more forcefully as excitement mounts, others life face down and rub their bodies  up and down on the bed.

           For most women the usual focus of masturbation is the clitoris. Some prefer to apply direct pressure by stroking and tweaking their clitoris with their fingers, while others apply more indirect pressure by rubbing, the whole of the genital area, massaging, rhythmically and then faster and harder as excitement rises.

           Some women like to insert a finger or some other penis shaped objects into their vagina. Some women find that they can reach orgasm amazingly quickly by masturbating  in a matter of seconds. For others it takes longer and it may be quite difficult to let go completely. Many women say that the orgasm they get through  masturbation is often more intense than those experienced during  sex with a partner.

           Masturbation should not be thought  as second best. The experience is a different one from sex with a partner. It does not involve the pleasures of sharing and giving, but it can be a useful way of relieving sexual tension.

           Many myths are associated with masturbation. These are scaring the people are generations. There are a log of imaginary  stories about the people who masturbate. Some say that they go mad, go blind, and can't have babies etc. These stories are not true. Masturbating can't do  any harm and there is no need to feel guilty or scared about it. Some people feel guilty because their religion or morals say that it's wrong.

           Many young persons have fought against masturbation. They promise not to do it again; then mounting sexual tension they are led to do it again.

           It is worth emphasizing that masturbation as practiced by the average adolescent has no known harmful physiological effects. It is actually considered a normal and healthy sexual outlet for young people.

           Children who feel unhappy, lonely and unwanted may center too much of their activity around masturbatory practices in an attempt to compensate for their frustrations. Occasionally, masturbation may be used as a form of hostile behavior.

           Masturbation may continue into adult life at the expense  of normal heterosexual behavior for example in the case of an individual who is extremely shy and fearful of the opposite  sex. When a person finds his or her spouse unattractive and prefers the more exciting and desirable persons depicted in the fantasies that accompany masturbatory activities; or when the person  has a strong but inhabited homosexual inclinations and prefers the figures of the  same sex in the masturbatory fantasies to heterosexual relations.

           The only undesirable features of masturbation are the worry guilt, and self-devaluation that may be associated with it, otherwise it is a normal phase of development, that precedes adult heterosexual behavior. It is an alternative sexual activity.

Process of Menstruation
           Menstruation is a discharge of blood and tissue from the lining of the uterus, which has been built up in anticipation of implantation of a fertilized egg. If pregnancy does not take place, the menstrual period usually occurs once a month and lasts from 3 to 6 days. It is also called menses; monthly  period and catamenia. Menstruation usually happens every months  between puberty and menopause but not while women are pregnant.

           A girl begins to menstruate any time between the age of 9 and 18. The average age is about 13. The beginning of Menstruation is determined by the release of hormones according to the particular girl's own internal timetable regardless of when other girls start.

           It happens  because sex hormones make the endometrium grow thicker and get soft and spongy, ready to receive a fertilized ovum. If no ovum is fertilized, the thickened endometrium is not needed, so it breaks away from the uterus and passes out of the vagina  together  with a little blood during  menstrual period. Endometrium is a specialized form of mucous  membrane that lines the uterus.  It is divided into two main types of tissue. One is the pars functional is, which is shed during menstruation, and the other  is pars basilis which is not shed and serves as the base fro proliferation of cells for the layers of pars function is that develop during the next  menstrual cycle.

           Menstruating women need to use sanitary towels, pads or tampons to soak up the menstrual flow. After menstruation, the endometrium starts to thicken again and he whole menstrual cycle repeats itself.

           Many women and girls have no problems when  they menstruate. But some get an ache or cramp like pains in their lower abdomen before and during menstruation . Some girls and women also get sore breasts, have headache and feel  tired, irritated or depressed before they menstruate. Some women and girls have the same problems every time, whenever they have their menstrual period. But the problems usually go away after her menstrual  period has started and then come back again before her next period is on its way. Average bleeding period is  four days and the amount of blood discharged  varies from one to five ounces.

           The length of the menstrual cycle can be anything from 20 to 36 days. But the average cycle  is about 28 days long.

           It is estimated that a woman  who starts to menstruate at 13, stops at 50, and has two children could have more than 400 menstrual cycles in her life time.

           When the girls  start menstruating, their menstrual  cycles are often not very regular. They may menstruate three or four times in the first year. A middle aged woman's  menstrual  cycle may also become irregular before she starts  the menopause.

           Sudden shock, worry, or great joy can affect the cycles and may make the menstrual period come late or early or prevent it altogether. These are called psychic impression and Sensations. There are women who are regular to time. Others are never quite certain when to expect their periods. Influence of climate, way of life, constitutional and hereditary tendencies may cause variations.

           There are many myths attached to menstruation. There are many stories about do's and don'ts during menstrual period like you must not wash your hair, have a bath, and do sports etc.

           Some religious and cultural restrictions are also there about what menstruating girls and women can do and can't do. Some backward tribes construct a shelter at the edge of a village reserved for women of the community who are menstruating. Menstruating women are thus isolated from the family and other members of the village for a period of about seven days every month.
