30 Sex-Ed Lessons I Had to Learn from Big Mouth
Women Masturbate, Too!
To be fair, the first time I heard about masturbation was during a middle school sex-ed course. It was only talked about in regard to boys, and the entire class started laughing every time the word was mentioned. A wonderful introduction to the topic, it was not. It wasn’t until college that I learned what Big Mouth explains during season three’s “How to Have an Orgasm”: Most women masturbate, too. Women rarely talk about pleasuring themselves, and it’s so uncommon in media that Marnie’s masturbation scene on Girls made national headlines. This was in 2012, people!
