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'd been feeling unwell, so I went the Doctors and the Doctor told me: 'I'm very sorry Mr Hat but you are going to have to stop masturbating'

Why is that I asked?

'Because it is rude when I'm trying to examine you'

Taxi for Hat

My goodness Hat did you inherit that joke from your great great great grandad?

ComposHat Thu 07-Feb-13 21:03:22

No I think I purloined it from that series, 'Old Jews telling jokes.'

It was told by an elderly Jewish man though.

why is it that 'wanking' sounds like such a male word hmm

Fallenangle Thu 07-Feb-13 21:16:00

I thought wanking was the male act, with frig being the female.

Fallenangle Thu 07-Feb-13 21:17:22

Women! We cant even let a man have a wank in peace without trying to get in on the act.

ButterCreamJam Thu 07-Feb-13 21:20:44

frig is a horrible word though, lets just claim wank as well - equality and all that

5 a day <faints> grin

Ds is lucky if he gets twice a month

Fallenangle Thu 07-Feb-13 21:26:43

shaky I think you may have mistyped, did you mean Ds or DP? I hope you meant DP.

This is a funny thread, but semi-seriously (fnar) I have actually seen women on this website who have never had an orgasm, or even considered achieving it by themselves, never looked at their genitals, or explored etc.

I do find that quite sad really, I hate this idea that sex is all about men and what they want. Teenage girls are just as horny/hormonal as boys mostly, it's just never discussed or normalised.

I remember reading an article on cracked about alternative sexual cultures, it could have been bollocks, btw. It was about people who ate a certain fruit which subdued fertility, like a natural contraceptive.

In this place people just shagged all the time, when they were bored, with anyone who was around, from younger than us etc, sex was just a thing you did which was nice, no moral values placed on it. Makes you think.

Something very indicative of this is the amount of "My 2yo daughter is playing with her bits/humping furniture" posts you get compared to the "My 2yo son is playing with his bits" posts.

I'd say it was about 10:1, says it all really.

Sorry for the essay blush.

Unfortunately sex and power are often interlinked which is probably why men's desires dominate. Sex and power can be a great game if you know how to play it, but too often neither party realises they are even playing. We still suffer from the remnants of the victorian attitude that sex is for men, women a necessary inconvenience.

Who needs a prescription, I happily use my hands. And it's one of my 5 a day.

Fallenangle Thu 07-Feb-13 22:43:48

But Mia it is so much more fun when a gorgeous young man in a white coat tells you that you must do it.

Mia4 Thu 07-Feb-13 22:45:23

Only if the gorgeous young man slides of the coat and lets his tongue take the place of my fingers smile I like to give the orders.

Fallenangle Thu 07-Feb-13 22:48:29

You have your fantasy, I'll have mine (I like to receive the orders, usuallygrin). The outcome will be the same!

Mia4 Thu 07-Feb-13 22:51:57

Lol, here's hope so-multiple times!

Fallenangle Thu 07-Feb-13 22:54:59

The 5 a day theme keeps recurring. I am wondering if its possible.

exexpat Thu 07-Feb-13 22:56:27

Returning to the thread title, I have heard of these occasionally being prescribed on the NHS for muscle problems and backache etc. but some people find they have other benefits...

<predicts rush of MNers to doctors complaining of sore muscles>

Fallenangle Thu 07-Feb-13 23:09:51

Exex power tools for girls!

Shaky Thu 07-Feb-13 23:25:50

Definitely typo, sorry blush

Absolutely dp NOT ds blush blush blush

that's reassuring shaky!

Back to wanking as a feminist issue I'm worried the author conspires to keep us all occupied and distracted from fighting for real equality:

"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."

Fallenangle Fri 08-Feb-13 11:24:48

Oh mitchy I love it when you talk dirty.

Mitchy1nge Fri 08-Feb-13 11:36:56


It's true though isn't it, how are we to wank/frig/strum our way to equal representation in parliament, industry etc?
