Yesterday my co-workers and I were engaged in a heated discussion in an effort to determine why women are much less likely to openly discuss masturbation than men.
It's not an issue of propriety or morality because for the most part women are as graphic (or even more so) in their discussion of their sexual exploits than men are but you never hear a woman say, "Man I'm gonna go home and rub one out" or talk about the one time they gave themselves a stranger or brag about how often they masturbate in the same way that men do.
Why is this? Why are we so shy about discussing pleasing ourselves but not shy about talking about the blow jobs we gave last weekend?
Shows like Sex and the City talk around the issue by focusing on a specific trendy toy (Hello Rabbit!) but I'm sure none of those women would be willing to admit to each other that they were late for brunch because they were busy buffin the muffin.
In tribute to women who are ballsy enough to talk about it here are some of my favorite songs about self abuse.
