News flash: women masturbate. And it’s not just for sexual pleasure… it can help reduce the pain of menstrual cramps and improve cardiovascular health. Men have been shown onscreen masturbating for years, yet film and TV makers tend to ignore female sexuality. However, things are starting to change, as more and more TV shows depict scenes of female masturbation in their programs.
The scenes cross all genres. There are scenes meant to be sexy, such as Moria the Maid’s scene from American Horror Story. Read More

Josephine Decker is an actor, writer, performance artist and filmmaker. Her most recent creations are two fearless feature-length films, Butter on the Latch and Thou Wast Mild and Lovely. These evocative movies defy expectations of narrative and rely on alternative styles of storytelling to illuminate the lives of young women. I got a chance to ask Decker some questions about her filmmaking process, feminism and fantasy. She is currently taking a physical theatre course in Philadelphia, gathering inspiration and research for her next film. Read More

Reign, the new CW period drama, is focused around a young hot Mary Queen of Scotts. In the pilot episode, a female masturbation scene was trimmed down for ambigious reasons that may or may not have been linked to decency. The hilarity of this action was that the masturbation scene took place moments after a sex scene and moments before another. Begging the question, WTF CW?
There is an interesting line drawn when it comes to television and sex. Female masturbation I guess hangs out beyond this line. Read More

The online world has been a buzz with photographer, Petra Collins, and her menstrual blood-themed t-shirt. Collins designed the shirt, which is illustrated with a menstruating hairy vagina (vulva), especially for American Apparel. Commentary on the product has ranged from disgust to intrigue to even some who see it as pure feminist genius.
This shirt is cool because it leaves little to the imagination. I think it is a beautiful feminist statement but would I wear it? Well, possibly... Read More

Not too long ago, we partnered up with German sex toy manufacturer FUN FACTORY to give away one of their spiffy sex toys for free. Now the company has created another kind of fancy-ass, hands-free device. Read More

If you never thought you’d hear the words masturbating and fetuses used together in a political statement, think again, because Texas Congressman Michael Burgess has just uttered the seemingly unthinkable phrase.
We didn’t think there was much left to be surprised about when it came to right-wing assertions concerning women’s rights, especially after Romney’s binders full of women and Akin’s legitimate rape, but this week has been especially stupefying. Read More

Coming (ha) to an iPhone near you: a new game that teaches females how to masturbate. Just like you’ve always wanted, but didn't know how to ask. The game, called HappyPlayTime, is an instructional journey to the world of female orgasm, and offers…playful diagrams to help you reach your destination. Cool?
The goal of it is to smash the negative cultural stigma that frowns upon female masturbation, ‘cause you know, we’re all supposed to be delicate little flowers without desires and what-not. Read More

Well, it finally happened. Will.i.am did something that was actually...GOOD. All thanks to our favorite potty-mouthed comedienne, Sarah Silverman, of course. In honor of YouTube Comedy Week, Silverman and Will.i.am together create a more-than-perfect parody of "I Gotta Feeling." This club banger all about celebrating some "me" time (AKA ordering in, watching a movie, and masturbating). This song first of all, made me LOL. Hard. Second of all, is fucking catchy as hell. Third of all, you don't even need another reason. Read More

Let’s talk about sex, baby. Seriously, Let’s talk about sex, right out in the open. According to a recent obvious article, sexual squeamishness does women no favors. No Shit.
May is National Masturbation Month. That’s right, dear chums. Happy Monday.
(I am just putting this out there...Best money I've spent. The Lelo Liv Rechargeable vibrator. Lovely.)
So for a mid-month celebration, let’s talk about masturbation. Let’s abandon the euphemisms (I had a friend once call it “sending Muffin morse code”) and just talk. Read More

**UPDATE: We have our winners! Thanks for playing, everybody!
May is National Barbecue Month, Blood Pressure Month, Hamburger Month, and Bike Month, but most importantly, and amusingly, it's also National Masturbation Month! We're long-time advocates of self-love, so we're happy to publicize this holiday (though we celebrate it all year, not just in May). Buying a vibrator used to require a trip to the nearest sexy-times emporium, but recently, sex toys have been going mainstream. You can now buy all sorts of pleasure enhancers at places as mundane as the drugstore or grocery store. Read More
