IT’S COME TO THIS: Women Ashamed Of Not Masturbating. “The ‘taboo’ for me, or the shame, rather, was that I was this sexually liberated, feminist woman who very much enjoys sex, who also doesn’t masturbate. I felt like everyone was doing it but me. . . . So there’s another side to masturbation shame.
