my sorrow; i could not awaken
my heart to joy at the same tone
and all that i loved, i loved alone.
Edgar Allan Poe, Alone
the reason i am writing all of this is because female masturbation is still a taboo topic and i’m sure there are many girls and women out there who can relate to my story. i want to let you know you are not alone, you are not a freak and there is nothing shameful about masturbation. masturbation is the safest sex act you can take part in. it is an act of self care and self love. it reduces stress, increases circulation and improves your relationship with yourself. in short, masturbation is good for you. if it’s something you enjoy doing, that’s fuckin great. and, in this culture which shames female sexuality and objectifies female bodies, you should be really fuckin proud of yourself for maintaining any kind of sexual relationship with yourself.— (via spiritd3sire)
