Surprising Facts About Female Masturbation

When hearing the term “masturbation,” we oftentimes think of a male doer, and even despite feminist movements and their equality propaganda, some people still get uncomfortable discussing sex and masturbation when the subject is a woman.  

According to a somatic psychologist and a certified sex therapist, “masturbation is taught to us in a way we view it as normal to boys, but not to girls.” This is very problematic because similar to human males, females also have sexual urges, fantasies, and need for physical pleasure. Luckily, unlike before, different industries are now becoming more open and inclusive to women when it comes to products and services such as adult kits and toys for females.  

And since it is a taboo to talk about female masturbation, we will break it by sharing with you today some of the surprising facts about female masturbation.
