The evangelical Christian take on masturbation is usually pretty simple: Don’t do it. Don’t touch yourself. Don’t even think about touching yourself. There’s something wrong with you if you do it. Pastor Mark Driscoll even went so far as to say it basically amounted to homosexuality (*gasp*) because it was a sexual act that didn’t involve a woman and did involve you touching a penis.
But that’s all referring to male masturbation. They typically don’t even want to acknowledge that women may want to touch themselves, too.
So I was pleasantly surprised to see Jordan Monge‘s article in Christianity Today in which she discusses female masturbation. Finally, a sensible take on the matter, right?
Not even close.
