Masturbation

Hi, I've got a simple question: what's masturbation for? Thanks!

Masturbation is the stimulation of your own genitals, which often begins naturally in childhood as we explore our bodies. Apart from releasing sexual tension, it's not really for anything, although some women find it easier to bring themselves to orgasm through masturbation, and knowing your own body will have a positive effect on your sex life.
