Masturbating has been proven to provide a wide range of emotional and physical benefits. The act of self-pleasure is an empowering one, and it can be crucial to own your sexuality, your desires, and your independence. Masturbating, and sexual health in a larger sense, are also closely tied to politics. The Trump administration has put Title X— a law that provides funding to family planning and reproductive healthcare—in jeopardy. As such, casting your vote is a powerful way to protect accessibility to sexual health care for millions of Americans. Remaining complicit in the current administration will put reproductive rights in jeopardy. Women have worked too hard to secure our rights and take ownership of our sexualities—autonomy and exploration— to forfeit them now due to complacency.
