Masturbation should be part of everyone’s self-care routine and Vush is here to help

WORDS BY RACHAEL SMITH

Let’s count the benefits.

When it comes to the conversation around self-care, our sexual wellbeing is often overlooked. But limiting our view of self-care to meditation, yoga and green juice may be letting ourselves down. There’s no doubt that a healthy self-care practice leads to self-love. And so, it would be wrong of us to overlook perhaps the most tangible and life-affirming act of self-love; masturbation.

The health benefits of sex are well-documented, and we get many of the same benefits from self-pleasure. The glowing skin after orgasm (coined the after-sex glow), the sense of connectedness and groundedness we feel after sex, the feelings of pleasure and self-love that inevitably follow – there’s no doubt as to the number of beneficial effects it has on our physical and mental health.

And let’s not forget how self-pleasure helps us become more intimately acquainted with our bodies and sexual desires, two elements that are vital in us learning how to enjoy sex.

In our view, masturbation is an essential self-care activity for women. Whether it’s part of your daily self-care routine or you prefer to be more ad hoc, it is an important practice for all.

The question then becomes, how to masturbate well? The basis for this question is pretty well-founded. Female pleasure, sex and sexuality have been oppressed for centuries. The topic of female self-pleasure has been traditionally regarded as taboo. Even in our somewhat progressive modern-day society, the topic is still rarely broached.

It’s why we resonate deeply with the mission and vision of Vush, a brand devoted to empowering all women to embrace their sexuality through female pleasure products such as clitoral stimulators and vibrators. Vush was born out of the desire to destigmatise masturbation and empower women sexually.

Their central belief is that female sexual liberation will help create a truly equal and open society. Women engaging in a self-pleasure practice is not only vital for good wellbeing, but holds great social and political weight. Now that’s something we can get on board with.

Sex toys and vibrators are a great place to begin, but choosing the right sex toy or vibrator can be overwhelming.  So, I’ve done the hard work for you and turned to the team at Vush for their expertise and assistance.

For those new to the world of vibrators and toys, Vush has a host of sexual wellness devices for empowered women. There’s The Empress, named ‘the most popular sex toy on Instagram’ with over 1,500 five-star reviews, and counting. It’s a vacuum vibrator with eight different suction levels, each designed to stimulate the clitoris and help you get to know your body better.

And let’s not forget The Empress’ functionality. It’s water-resistant, so it can be used in the shower or bath with no qualms and is easily cleaned. Plus, it arrives in discreet, plain packaging, which for many of us is very important.

According to the team, however, its best vibrator for newbies is The Rose. It’s a signature bullet vibrator and the perfect entry-level option for those wanting to begin their exploration into the world of self-pleasure.

It’s discreet in its operation but undoubtedly powerful. Its near silence is noteworthy for those among us who crave discretion. We particularly enjoy the variety of vibration settings – there’s 10 for those wondering – which ensures maximal pleasure.

Or for those wanting more of a classic wand vibrator, there’s the Your Majesty. This toy is one of the most luxurious on the market, thanks to its 25 (!!!) vibration settings.

Like all vibrators, The Empress, The Rose and Your Majesty can not only be used solo but with partners as well. It’s a great addition to our box of self-care tools, helping us harness the many health benefits of masturbation and sex.

Whether you’re new or experienced in the world of self-pleasure, there’s no denying that it ought to be an essential part of your self-care routine. Connecting and engaging with our sexual self is vital to the liberation of women, plus, it’s a fun and simple way to practice self-love.
