In case you needed some scientific reassurance

"Masturbating can cause you to release healthy amounts of hormones, which is why it can positively affect your mood and physical health.

  • Dopamine. This is one of the “happiness hormones” that’s related to your brain’s reward system.
  • Endorphins. The body’s natural pain reliever, endorphins also have de-stressing and mood-boosting effects.
  • Oxytocin. This hormone is often called the love hormone and is associated with social bonding.
  • Testosterone. This hormone is released during sex to improve stamina and arousal. It’s also released when you have sexual fantasies, according to a 2011 study Trusted Source.
  • Prolactin. A hormone that plays an important role in lactation, prolactin also influences your mood and immune system.
