Women masturbate. On a Bed. In the Shower. In the Car. In our dreams. With Friends. We do masturbate.
Still with me? Okay. I just had to get that point across as flagrantly as possible. Are you squeamish yet? Good, because this post is about to become a whole lot more blunt.
I’m sick and tired of this stigma against female masturbation. Even more than that, it kills me that this subject is so taboo. Yes, little boys masturbating is considered a ‘taboo’ topic, but take a moment to consider all of the PSA’s that went into the creation of the stereotype of little boys disappearing off to the shower for a little ‘personal time.’
“Oh don’t mind Billy. Boys will be boys after all.”
In our society[the U.S.] there is a socialized norm towards boys masturbating, but that same norm does not get extended to their female counter parts. I used to wonder why that was but then I had to stop myself and give myself a reality check. Duh Kalhu, we live in a patriarchal society. Men can socially get away with more than women can. Now before I lose any of you, I am not some raging femme bitch who wants death to all men. No, I am just a girl living in a male-dominated world and having to suffer the consequences. We have progressed a lot in terms of women’s rights. Hell, I’m a 21-year old college student with no marital prospects, that right there is proof enough. But what we have achieved in overt success also has a dirty secret that lurks in the subtle beliefs and paradigms of our culture; indirect sexism. It’s still alive and kicking, and it is rearing it’s ugly head especially in the conversation on female masturbation.
Let’s talk about masturbation. Girls will be girls after all. We experience sexual pleasure as well. We do have sensory nerves down there. A lot of them actually and we do get the urge to engage those same nerves. And you know what? It feels damn good! We can experience happy alone time too. I personally partake in Kalhu’s special happy time quite often, (this is code speak for I masturbate, everyday). I don’t say this to be vulgar but I want to break through the barriers of this stigma and start the conversation on women masturbating.
So if you’re interested in starting up the conversation with me, check out my video on this topic.
Let me know what y’all think. The good, the bad, and the ugly.
Peace ; D
