In the shower! In a hot tub! With a vibrator! During a sex dream! Masturbation: ladies are doing it! Jezebel blogged about a UK study of 1,000 women ages 18 to 30 which found a whopping 92% masturbate! Two-thirds of women in the Gossard Big M survey touched themselves three times a week and women living in London self-pleasured four times a week. According to past surveys, 74% masturbated in 1974 and 62% did in 1953. (1953? Really?) Of course, the study took place across the pond, so we can't be totally sure women here are just as frisky.

The doctors Bodansky have written that if the orgasm that most people know now is like the Wright brothers' plane, then the extended massive orgasm, or EMO, is like the space shuttle. Their book, "The Illustrated Guide to Extended Massive Orgasm," offers detailed instructions on how to give an EMO, but it's just as important to learn the steps required to receive one: knowing what pleases all of your senses, learning to relax and receive, and getting into agreement with your body and your life. “Choices present themselves at every moment of our lives,” they write in the first chapter, “and when you choose correctly, you can guide yourself toward a better, more pleasurable existence. But uncovering—the better word is recognizing—these choices often requires an attitude adjustment. That adjustment consists of getting into agreement with what is occurring in your life, for only then can you hope to move on to a higher level.”
