In the context of gender inequality, there are many double standards that condemn such sexual behavior in women, which is considered acceptable in men. This reduces the average sexual activity of women compared with men and the chances of women for sexual satisfaction, and women in some cases do not dare to speak openly about their sexual behavior. There is a stereotype that masturbation is an activity only or mainly for men, despite the fact that in Russia, according to an anonymous Internet survey, 84% of women have experience of masturbation, and most often begin it in adolescence, like their male peers, and in more than 90% of women have masturbation experience in developed countries.
As sexologist Shea Hait said, the prohibition of girls to touch their bodies is associated with the idea that it is intended for the pleasure of men. Patriarchal conservatives who instill puritanical morality and double standards in relation to women fear female masturbation as an independent manifestation of women's sexuality. The gender gap in masturbation prevalence is diminishing with a more positive and free attitude towards women's sexuality, but it still persists.
The silence and less prevalence of open discussion among adolescent girls may limit it more than outright condemnation. Restricting masturbation is one of the reasons why women, due to patriarchal restrictions, are more likely to have problems with orgasm than men. The experience of masturbation is recommended for girls in adolescence by modern sexology, as it reduces the likelihood of problems with orgasm in sex. Masturbation is recommended for women also in the absence of orgasm in order to learn how to get it. Almost all women get orgasms from clitoral stimulation during masturbation, stimulation in sex with their hand or the hand of a partner and cunnilingus. During vaginal sex, according to various sources, only 30 to 60% of women get an orgasm, so it is recommended to include stimulation of the outer part of the clitoris in sex.
As a result of restrictions on sexuality, women formally find it easier to find sex than men, but more difficult to find satisfying sex. In these conditions, loneliness can be considered more a manifestation of the failure of women than men. And society can, most often unreasonably, consider the masturbation of women as a consequence of loneliness and failure in men. It can also lead to women being less likely to talk openly about their masturbation experience than men.
I think it's just as difficult to confess to both, it just seems like that, I, too, when talking about something like that for some reason it gets when I bite off a bagel or bite a cake in general, dissonance occurs with information and it seems that I said without straining. what is wrong.
Another thing is that masturbation is normal and natural, and if you understand it !! You just understand, not just know !!
Then it's easier to say, it depends on the idea of the norm.
in my opinion today it is easy for anyone to do it
nowadays it is not shameful to entertain yourself, no matter what gender you are) especially since it does not bother anyone
There are two reasons for this, in my opinion:
Today in society the concept of "masculinity" is largely identified with the sexual power and success in sex of men. "Macho", "male", "brutal" - these epithets are perceived as a compliment. Men boast of their successes in "conquering" women. The theme of sex as the main way of interaction between men and women is so deeply rooted that even myths arise about the "harm of abstinence", that "a normal man cannot endure for a long time", etc. Accordingly, male masturbation is practically a demonstration of his "masculine strength" during the period of forced inactivity.
The second point is related to the fact that a woman is originally by nature a purer, more subtle being than a man. Why, for example, there are no jokes about women's socks that stand in the corner from the dirt, and nothing else can be worn. Or why are women much more sensitive to hygiene?
It is this aspect that underlies the answer to your question: a woman's experiences are much deeper than just physical pleasure, she feels the world more subtly and is not ready to reveal herself to strangers.
