"Some time ago, I read this article called 'I went to a Female Masturbation Class' in The Cut about a woman's first experience with guided female masturbation classes. I was so fascinated by the idea, that I started reading and digging about the topic.
For my last birthday, I finally gifted myself with a ticket to an all-day masturbation class in my city and it was hands down one of the most empowering and liberating experiences of my life. Being in a room with other sex-positive women touching ourselves, feeling orgasms rising up inside of us was unlike anything I've ever done before. It was so powerful seeing these women pleasuring themselves, discovering their own bodies and minds in such an open space without shame or reservations, even though none of us knew each other beforehand. This day has changed my life and the way I look at self-pleasure and self-care forever.
I would love to see a movie about masturbation classes that encourages other women to get in touch with themselves ;)"
Female masturbation remains one of the most stigmatized topics to discuss. And honestly, I've had it!
I want to make something very clear, once and for all: WOMEN MASTURBATE.
Yes you've heard right. Women are horny, too and we are just as capable of enjoying our sexuality as men are. Masturbating is a natural and fun way to connect with and get to know your body and to find out what brings you satisfaction. Masturbation is self-care and there is absolutely nothing shameful about it. Period.
