It may have seemed like there was a lot of masturbation talk this week on Skepchick. But if you read carefully, you’ll see that this week was actually about not masturbating! We had Rebecca’s Orgasmatron which was about orgasming without sex or self-diddling. And we had writerdd talking about maturbation turning boys gay or something else equally as ridiculous involving sexually empowering underwear.
So in celebration of Skepchick’s unofficial masturbation-free week, I bring you the borderline NSFW video Resisting The Urge: A Guide For Christian Boys
Yes, beat the demon! Beat it! Beat it!
And it seems that in Canada, kids are not understanding the message that masturbation is “self-abuse”. They seem to be discussing it openly… and they’re not ashamed of what they’re doing. In fact, at one high school, all the kids (except one liar) are doing it! And sex PhD. Brian Parker is saying this is a good thing; that it will result in a decrease in anorgasmia (the inability to achieve orgasm) in women since the condition is generally psychological. He says, “If they’re not comfortable with their genitals or with masturbating, it can inhibit sexual self-expression.”
He also says that people who masturbate are more likely to have happier, more fulfilling sex lives.
So, marking the end of our non-masturbation week, I urge you to put on your sexiest, most empowering underwear and find a phthalate-free way to celebrate yourself.
