I find it interesting that quite a few men have commented here that they don't really talk about it. I get that the point is that by normalizing talking we normalize the act since often those are two tightly related. There's so much implicit cultural judgment in society that yes, we need to open these doors. But I am not sure if in this case talking would be enough. Not sure a young boy needs to talk about masturbation to start masturbating. So many other factors seem to be playing with the fact that young girls/women are not taking joy in discovering their sexuality and power. Factors that make sure we are never empowered. It's a big fight but certainly one worth fighting for. Thank you for the great writing :)
