Myth #1. "It’s done with just your hands"

Although it’s true that they can be handy, your hands and fingers aren’t the only thing you can use! Many folks choose to incorporate sexual aids (such as toys) into their play, and some styles even allow for full on hands-free fun!

Myth #2. "It has to be done alone"

No way, because mutual masturbation (masturbating alongside a partner or friend) counts too! 

Myth #3. "People in relationships don’t do it"

Whether you’re monogamous or polyamorous, many folks choose to incorporate masturbation into other sexual activities with a partner. It’s also ideal for when your partner(s) is sick, away, or simply not in the mood!

Myth #4. "It’s unhealthy"

Actually, masturbation has many known health benefits!

Myth #5. "Everyone does...or doesn’t do it"

Whether you choose to masturbate or not, it’s exactly that; a personal choice. While some folks do and others don’t, it's all about what’s best for you individually.
