Stress Binge

‘I masturbated every day for a week to fix my sleep schedule. Here’s exactly what


I ended my week-long experiment with a bang, pulling out Kama by Share Satisfaction. Boy does this toy hit the spot! It’s no wonder it’s a current best-seller. 

With both internal and external stimulation, it provides an experience like no other. Kama has both internal vibration and clitoral suction. I only use the suction, with the shaft inserted but the vibrations off. 

This helps me focus on the clitoral stimulation. And TBH, I can’t even get past level three. This thing is insane! And led to a particularly great night’s rest.

The verdict?

As I’m sure you can imagine, masturbating every day definitely wasn’t the hardest task, but I was sceptical whether it would actually make a difference. The results were a happy surprise!

Orgasming before bed helped me feel more relaxed and helped me fall asleep a lot faster than usual. The main thing was that it helped reduce my stress levels. 

Focusing on something other than Instagram or TikTok before bed made a difference, and it was also nice to end my day with self-love and self-care beyond the usual face mask and a scented candle. 

People often overlook how much self-pleasure can improve your mood and health. My night routine would consist of mindless scrolling until my eyes were too tired to stay open. So this was a welcome change.

Psst! Have a listen of this episode of Sealed Section, Mamamia’s sex podcast. Post continues after audio.

Mixing it up by using different sex toys kept things interesting, and at the end of the week, my Apple watch showed an ‘average time asleep’ of seven hours and 45 minutes, compared to the previous week’s six hours and 50-minute average. Now, I’m not sure how accurate relying on a watch is… BUT this seems like great progress to me!

While I’m not sure I’ll continue with masturbating every night, this experiment was a great way to wind down and reminded me that you do need a little downtime at the end of the day. Whether you decide to masturbate, read a book, take a long bubble bath, do some yoga… It’s up to you!

This experiment also helped me appreciate the power of pleasure and orgasms. Sexual pleasure is a vital part of our health and wellbeing, and it can do wonders for our bodies. I think this experiment proves that self-pleasure is self-care!
