It’s nearly 2021, people — why is masturbation still a taboo topic? We’re all for self-love, in the month of May (which happens to be National Masturbation Month — really!) and every month. Honestly, masturbating every day is healthy. It’s good for married people. It’s good for all people. And that’s why we love it when people, especially famous people, aren’t afraid to talk about it. We don’t need celebrities to tell us masturbation is great — but we love it when they’re not afraid to spread the word about it.
