It’s Masturbation May and we at Naughty North are thrilled to be celebrating the topic of self love all month long!
As Canadians, we like to think of ourselves as a worldly, open-minded kind of people but does that extend to our attitudes towards masturbation? We (almost) all do it. Masturbation is a healthy, natural way to explore our bodies, it is great for our mental and physical health, and it lets us learn what we like and don’t like if we choose to become intimate with a partner. So why don’t we talk about it more?
At Naughty North, we decided to start off Masturbation May by looking at some statistics and numbers because, we know you’re all curious about who does it, and how often. One of the most commonly asked questions on the internet is ‘how often do people masturbate’ so let’s break it down.
