Is it bad to masturbate in the shower?

No. It’s perfectly fine to masturbate anywhere that’s private.

Masturbation has a number of physical and mental health benefits — here are just a few:

  • Masturbation releases stress and physical tension. Many people masturbate to relax, and it can help some people fall asleep.
  • Orgasms — whether they’re from masturbation or sex play with a partner — can act as a natural painkiller. Some women masturbate to relieve menstrual cramps. Research has also shown that orgasms may even prevent endometriosis, a disease of the uterine lining.
  • One recent study found that frequent ejaculation from masturbating may reduce a man’s chances of developing prostate cancer.
  • Plus, solo sex is the ultimate form of safer sex — there is no risk of pregnancy or infection.
