No, masturbation will not cure you of COVID-19. But when the worst of the symptoms is over and they are relatively better, masturbation can be a great ally and bring benefits such as relaxation, mood improvement and strengthening your immune system.
MASTURBATION HELPS TO DECONGESTION THE NARINS
One of the most common symptoms of COVID-19, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is a stuffy nose.
According to a study published in the Ear, Nose & Throat Journal in January 2021, climax can help decongest the airways. Some research claims that both physical exercise and hormonal changes can affect -positively- the function of the airways in the medium and long term.
Despite the study carried out by the University of Cambridge talking about having sex together, their theory that there is a physiological connection between the nose and private parts. What’s more, after three hours of having sex, study participants’ nasal breathing returned to baseline levels, while people who used a nasal decongestant spray saw improvements in breathing for longer. So consider reaching for an orgasm for instant relief while you wait for your cold medicine to kick in.
MASTURBATION HELPS HEADACHES
Another common symptom of COVID-19 is your terrible headaches. A study published in Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry demonstrated that sexual activity was able to relieve headaches and migraine episodes. Around 31% of patients engaged in sexual activity during a headache attack, with 37% of that group reporting a moderate or complete improvement in pain. This happens because of the endorphin released in practice, which helps to inhibit pain, according to studies.
HELP YOU SLEEP BETTER
Although it is not a symptom, people who have tested positive for COVID may experience fever, shortness of breath, cough and body aches, which impact sleep quality. O sleep foundation conducted a study that showed that patients with COVID-19 are more likely to report sleep problems, due to symptoms of the disease that make it difficult to rest, such as breathing and coughing. 75% of patients reported trouble sleeping.
Also, to fight the virus, what your body needs is rest. And coincidentally, the most important hormones to ensure sleep quality (oxytocin and prolactin) are released during sexual activity. One study reported that 54% of volunteers demonstrated improved sleep after masturbation and 47% experienced less difficulty falling asleep.
HELP WITH MEMORY
Also according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, one of the long-term symptoms of COVID-19 that may occur is memory loss and difficulty concentrating.
Masturbation can help clear your mind, allowing you to think clearly. A study by Age and Aging found that among adults ages 50 to 89, having sex can help improve memory and cognitive function. This happens because masturbation releases endorphin and dopamine – which according to the National Institutes of Health is a great ally for focus and concentration.
ORGASM HELP IN THE PERCEPTION OF SMELLS
Orgasm releases the hormone prolactin in your body, which can improve your sense of smell, something that is commonly linked to COVID-19. Prolactin helps the stem cells in your brain’s olfactory bulb, encouraging the development of new neurons, according to the book “Why Women Have Sex?” by Cindy M. Meston and David M. Buss.
Clearly having orgasms alone will not improve COVID-19 symptoms. But it will definitely be bringing great benefits.
