A study revealed that 95% of men and 89% of women masturbated at least once in their lifetime. Masturbation is a sexual arousal or stimulation of person's genitals resulting to orgasms. I already discussed the health benefits of sex and the different positive effects of kissing, below are the proven health benefits of masturbation.
