Why Is There So Much Stigma Around Masturbation? Women Masturbate. Let’s Talk A Tit Bit About It

By  | 

Okay look, it’s time we get this out in the open, men do not have a monopoly over masturbation. Men and women alike indulge in a little self-play every now and then and this should not be news to you. If it is, then brace yourself for we are about to go on a stigma-shattering ride!

It is an open secret that boys start watching porn and touching themselves as soon as they hit puberty, but when a girl does the same thing, she is basically slut-shamed and looked down upon. Unfortunately, our society treats women’s sexuality as a community affair as they try to take control of it and curb it down. There are times I feel like this patriarchal society just wants to see us as gumball machines here to repopulate the earth. I mean, they just aren’t ready to accept that we too need to feel sexual pleasure and gratification as much as men do and sometimes, we just need to satisfy ourselves. Already starting to get uncomfortable? Ideally, you shouldn’t because I am just being honest.

The truth is that a woman taking charge of her pleasure is all things taboo that needs to be done away with. Why is a woman touching herself such a bad thing? When a man masturbates, they say it’s actually important since getting that release is a physiological need of the body.  So why does it make everyone uncomfy if a woman does exactly the same? Women feel sexual desires as much as men and we too have the right to “release” ourselves.

Listen To Our Tit Bit Podcast On Masturbation 

After ranting on about this, I want to ask you when was the last time you spoke about masturbation without feeling even a shred of embarrassment? If it was a long time ago, I urge you to go and listen to the first episode of our podcast, Tit Bits. We spoke to several women at Hauterfly who have no qualms whatsoever with talking about masturbation and why it is considered to be such a behind-closed-doors conversation. These ladies are on point and you will either relate or want to!

The first person in the lineup said that she believes that women masturbating is such a problem because we don’t believe that women are sexual beings to begin with, it makes people uncomfortable to think of women being sexual. Another person blamed this stigma completely on patriarchy. Well, she is not wrong the patriarchal society is known to be ignorant to women’s desires.  Another person believes that women are only comfortable talking about masturbation in their own close circle of friends.

Look, I am not saying that you have to shell out every single detail. All I am saying is that you need to know that it is okay to accept your own sexual needs (no matter how ignorant the society is) and just give yourself a hand every once in a while. There is nothing wrong with that and moreover you deserve it.
