This particular list was compiled by Taylor Andrews, who is one of Cosmopolitan Magazine's Sex and Relationship editors. Cosmopolitan has always been a champion in facilitating an interesting dialogue around sexual health and wellness. Masturbation is a part of the sexual health and wellness conversation. So many men and women feel more confident after a great session of self-pleasure. Though this type of stress reliever is always ideal when it's experienced with another person, it's not always available. In the meantime, you don't have to miss out on relaxation.

It's okay to make masturbation an experience. Include music in the equation. Run a bath for yourself. Throw a bath bomb or some bath oils into the tub. Add a few rose petals if you have the time. Once you finish your bath, use some luxurious creams, lotions and oils to moisturize your body. Take your time because you deserve it. Lingerie isn't just for you to experience while you're with someone. You can wear a teddy or some lingerie for yourself. You can enjoy your own view.

It's also a great idea to add some aphrodisiacs to the mix. The right foods can enhance your experience. Now is the time when it's okay to indulge in some chocolates. While you're listening to Drunk in Love, enjoy some champagne. Oysters and strawberries are great options as well.

So many women feel confident and empowered to explore what it means to be a sexual being. As a woman, you can enjoy pleasure on your own. Besides, when you feel the need for personal pleasure, a girl s got to do what a girl s got to do.
