Masturbation is one of those topics that people are either comfortable talking about or not. It's a marmite topic. But I think it's an important one because there's a negative stigma around masturbation that shouldn't exist.

Just hearing the word masturbation, people instantly think of a teenage boy hiding away in a dark bedroom with the door locked and laptop on. Through the inability to make discussing masturbation a normal topic, we've come to believe that masturbation is a dirty deed and not the healthy act of self love that it is.

Most of us start experimenting with masturbation in our teenage years as hormones change and we become intrigued by these new feelings and desires. We explore how these things feel and with the internet having an ever increasing presence in our lives, access to porn websites is easier than ever before.

I don't remember the first time I tried masturbating but I do remember that to start with it was a confusing process; there's so many new feelings that it's hard to accept that you want to try these new things. And now I can look back on my teenage years, I can see where the issues lie.

From what I can remember I'd started masturbating after we'd had a sex education class at school. But I didn't know what masturbation was because it wasn't covered in sex ed. It wasn't talked about and that only made the process even more confusing.

Fast forward a few years and I'm a massive advocate for masturbation. It's the perfect way for people to get to know their bodies better - teenagers learn all about what's going on with their vagina or penis and learning about your body doesn't stop with the physicality's, you learn how to turn yourself on and what you like or don't like.

Masturbation is a way of making yourself feel good and helps you to be more body positive. It's also a great way of satisfying your needs without a partner having to be involved. In fact, I always have a better orgasm through masturbation that I do sex with a partner.

Talking about masturbation as an everyday topic could have a profound effect. Not only for the teenagers who are just starting but for everyone, because even at 20 I still enjoy masturbating and that's perfectly healthy.
