December is the month of fun. Things are getting festive and everyone is here for a good time. However, as the nights draw in and the weather gets colder, this month is the most perfect time to stay inside, get cosy and have a good old fashioned wank.
Minimise your blue balls and maximise your pleasure
Masturbation is great. It’s a stress reliever that is needed after a long day in the lead up to christmas. There is nothing that compares to that feeling. However, you may have heard of No Nut November, the online challenge that started a few years ago, encouraging people to not ejaculate for the whole month of November. That’s 30 days of denying yourself pleasure, and torturing yourself until your balls feel like they’re 2 stone heavier.
The truth is, ejaculating is good for you. In fact, there are endless benefits that doctors, sexologists and other experts have praised masturbation for. So why go without? Here at Fleshy, we would like to propose a new fun challenge that can make your festive season a whole lot more pleasurable - Deck the Balls December. Essentially, you can nut until your hearts (and balls) content;in fact, we want you to wank as much as possible, but with one catch - no porn for a whole month.
As masturbation connoisseurs, we would never want you to go without, but even we see the benefits of a porn cleanse. It’s very easy to get into the habit of pulling up your favorite porn category and watching the first thing that tickles your fancy. Then you’re mindlessly fapping away until you cum, but the dreaded feeling of guilt soon creeps over you.
December is the time to break the cycle and feel good after your solo sex session. Now, we appreciate there are a few grey areas and potential loopholes with this challenge. What really counts as porn? Does audio erotica count? Can I download 50 shades on Netflix and fast forward until I see a bit of action? We would argue that it all counts.
There are so many other ways you can enjoy your self-love session and maximize pleasure.

Benefits Of Masturbation
There’s a reason masturbation feels so good and that’s because it is good. There has been a lot of research into whether masturbation and ejaculation are good for you and it turns out, it is in fact extremely beneficial for both your physical and mental health, as well your sexual health. We have shared just a handful of these below:
|Improves your performance - Your partner may even thank you for having a wank as regular masturbation actually helps you last longer in bed, as well as decreasing.
|Improves your mood - Masturbation can help relieve stress and anxiety by encouraging relaxation. When you ejaculate, your body releases mood boosting chemicals such as endorphins and serotonin that will help boost your good mood.
|Improves your sleep - Have you ever found that after an intense orgasm you feel really sleepy? It turns out there is a scientific reason for that. In the same way that they improve your mood, the chemicals that are released when you climax help you relax and therefore, encourage you to fall asleep quicker.
|Improves your heart health - If you ever feel guilty for skipping the gym just to stay home and bash one out! Masturbating actually improves your cardiovascular health as your increased heart rate gives your ticker a good workout.
|Improves your skin - Your heart beating fast while you masturbate actually brings an unexpected benefit of improving your skin, as it pumps essential oxygen around your body. This improves circulation and therefore overall skin health.
|Lowers the risk of prostate cancer - A Harvard Medical School study found that men who ejaculated 21 or more times a month had a 31% lower risk of prostate cancer than those who ejaculated 4-7 times per month across their lifetime.
