Soraya Roberts Longreads February 9 minutes 2, words. There was a time when people believed masturbating would leave them blind, hairy-palmed, and STD-riddled okay, the last one was me — I was a kid in the nineties. The ancient Sumerians were down with it — for both men and women — but two centuries of moralists ruined masturbation for everyone. This made me feel all those things that have since become stereotypical themes when it comes to women and masturbation: shame, guilt, like there was something wrong with me. It sucked for me, but it sucks less for girls who get to watch Sex Education. But I know exactly what I want. Rewind to the day before. What about my tits, then? And I mean everywhere: On her back! On her stomach!

And this kind of self-exploration tends to happen far sooner than most parents expect. So what should you do if you catch your child touching themselves? Put it in context and address the issue in a reasonable way. That puts parents on edge.
