From Sexual Myths About Women:

Myth: Girls/Women don't engage in autoeroticism

Au contrare, mon frère--

Female homo sapiens do indeed engage in autoeroticism (masturbation to the layman). Why else would there be sooo many vibrators in existence? I know, a man may like using one near his anus, but this is rather rare (or at least un- or under-reported).

4Q. How many men/women masturbate?

The best studies of this subject are now quite old. They found approximately 95% of men and about 60% of women claim to have masturbated. There is reason to think the figures for women would be higher if another comprehensive study were done today.

from alt.faq.masturbation at http://www.masturbationpage.com/asmfaq1.html#4q

Show me a woman who doesn't, and she is either repressed, ridicuously religious, or a liar. (This is a highly subjective statment, but I refuse to retract it. As for the religious statement, I was raised Catholic, which teaches that masturbation is a mortal sin. This worried me for about three seconds.)

Truth be told, I've been masturbating since I was born; been climaxing since I was thirteen. This is perfectly normal.

She-bop a-go-go! Viva la main!
