Misinformation and stereotypes abound when it comes to masturbation. I’m glad that publications like Teen Vogue are stepping up to demystify the topic.
In Masturbation: Fact or Fiction, Corinne Werder dispels some of the most pervasive misconceptions about masturbation: that it’s dirty, that it’s only for when you can’t get laid, that those with vulvas can get too attached to masturbating (especially with vibrators), and so on. Spoiler alert: they’re all false.
Better yet, the interview contains tons of quotes from my sex education colleague Kait Scalisi, who is a fantastic human being who’s also incredibly knowledgeable about sex and sexuality.
Kudos to Teen Vogue for running scientifically accurate, sex-positive stories like this one!
