This conversation I had with a male friend embodies the surprise a lot of people express when they find out I not only masturbate, but also admit it unabashedly. And that seems to surprise people, too. Because most depictions of women masturbating are either pornographic or part of some narrative of feminist empowerment, people are surprised when women treat masturbation as a normal, everyday activity. Viewing masturbation habits as fundamentally different by gender contributes to the view of sexualities as fundamentally different by gender.
That is more than any other area of the female body and accounts for the sensations felt during intercourse and sexual activity. According to statistics, masturbation is very common among women. More than half of American women ages 18—49 both single and those with partners masturbate at least once every 3 months. However, many women are tormented by doubts about whether female masturbation really is harmless to their health and whether it affects menstrual cycle regularity.
I wish more women talked about getting themselves off as much as men do because then we'd probably all know the answer to questions like, " Is masturbation healthy for women? But before I get into those, I'd like to point out that it's totally fine to masturbate simply because it feels good! You don't need to justify this to anyone with a thousand-word thesis on the health benefits of rubbing one out.
