It is difficult to establish the nature of female masturbation.[i] Women do not always use fantasy as men do, which suggests they may not always be masturbating to orgasm. Some infant girls masturbate as an instinctive comforting activity. Sometimes they reach a resolution that is interpreted as orgasm. However a young child does not have…
Because she targeted female masturbation specifically, Shere Hite’s sample included even more women (82%) who masturbated (compared with Kinsey’s sample).
