...or if they still are! Classics.

*of course this was never discussed at the ages of 12-18. I think my first real conversation with friends about masturbation happened at the end of college. For guys, the act is almost glorified and totally the norm. Expected. As a woman, I felt embarrassed by it. Abnormal. 

In all honesty, of all the personal and bodily topics I discuss here, this aspect of my body is still the one I feel most sheepish about. So, here I am making myself a little bit uncomfortable in hopes that through sharing I embrace this aspect of my sexuality more!

Here's to masturbation!
