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.
