to agree that wanking should be available on prescription?

except for feeling a bit shuddery at the concept of an NHS vibrator, maybe we could have shiny privately financed ones?

the idea whose time has come again, at last!

I am too moist to think of a suitable response to that confused

Mitchy1nge Wed 06-Feb-13 11:50:50

everyone is sad

YADNBU as apparently

"the challenge to redress gender inequalities in masturbation is the entrenched androcentric view that women either cannot or should not be capable of sexual satisfaction without penetration. Masturbation then, is not just a tool for sexual wellbeing, but an expression of autonomy and liberation and a challenge to the persisting attitudes that, like female orgasms, women are not only incidental but irrelevant"

Wanking is a feminist issue

do you think there will be government guide lines like the 5 fruit and veg a day

Mitchy1nge Wed 06-Feb-13 12:04:43

yes, incidental and irrelevant - I especially like this bit

"Female orgasm, though expected, is incidental and irrelevant. Save for a few reports by medical men, female masturbation is but a footnote in the history of masturbation, and female masturbators are caricatured as morbid, pathological and deranged."

"morbid, pathological and deranged"

Yep, that's me grin

Mitchy1nge Wed 06-Feb-13 12:53:39

and ME

but five a day is a bit much even by my enthusiastic standards

ouryve Wed 06-Feb-13 12:55:45

Mitchy, doesn't it only count if you do it 5 different ways each day?

Mitchy1nge Wed 06-Feb-13 12:58:41

dunno, probably do manage at least five orgasms most days blush but not in separate sittings

author does not actually mention any actual health benefits though, only a sort of moral entrepreneurialism to promote wanking as way of undoing the horrors of the pastel

Personally I didn't get past the stock image advert....

When was the last time you ran your rabbit over your neck and shoulders malady???

Mitchy1nge Wed 06-Feb-13 12:59:08

and also of the past

Mitchy1nge Wed 06-Feb-13 12:59:54

obviously do not want the horrors of the pastel NHS vibrator near my minge

fallenangle Wed 06-Feb-13 13:07:50

Mitchy seperate sittings ! Do you only do it sitting down?

Mitchy1nge Wed 06-Feb-13 13:09:42

well, in repose then

I can't do it standing up, I tried in the shower, it was rubbish

fallenangle Wed 06-Feb-13 13:13:20

Not enough pressure from the shower stream for me either, feels v nice but not enough to get me over the edge.

It is interesting to think about the ideas around women's sexuality through time, and currently.
It blew my mind when I read a blog, linked to from here, that suggested that women should be considered to have lost their virginity when they had an orgasm with someone else, not when they were merely penetrated.
I (half, well, probably not really, but you know, it's fun to say it) think all girls should be given a vibrator when they are 16.

Mitchy1nge Wed 06-Feb-13 13:23:30

I do think girls should be taught about this sort of thing, on some other thread recently a man pretending to be a woman expressed surprise and disbelief that women could wank at all shock

fallenangle Wed 06-Feb-13 13:31:52

Hmmm. I found out what to do all by myself, I just assumed everyone found out by experiment the same way. I do remember it being discussed in sex ed at school. I have a 14 year old DD, better consider when to have a chat with her.

WhichIsBest Wed 06-Feb-13 13:35:44

What do girls get taught?
At school, how to / how not to procreate. And from peers, which I suppose these days means porn, how to... fake enjoying whatever is good for your male partner.

Women deserve to enjoy sex. Alone or with someone else. Nobody seems to tell that to girls.

fallenangle Wed 06-Feb-13 13:46:52

I think they get taught the mechanics and about contraception. Not sure I would want either myself or school proclaiming how much fun sex can be.

Tee2072 Wed 06-Feb-13 14:14:52

I don't really have time for 5 a day. Sometimes I don't even have time for 1.

fallenangle Wed 06-Feb-13 14:35:54

Tee Prioritise, my dear, prioritise. grin
