“Thunderous applause!”

This booklet deals with the often sticky subject of masturbation—an inborn instinct that received such a bad press in the 18th century that many people are still afraid to discuss it, let alone admit to it.

Written by Marilyn Coffey whose Marcella was the first novel in English to explore female masturbation as its main theme, this booklet is sometimes serious, sometimes humorous.

In it you’ll learn what the Bible, psychologists, doctors and the U.S. postal officials have to say about masturbation. You’ll learn where masturbation got its bad reputation. You’ll learn who, besides humans, masturbates, and what (singularly speaking) turns women on.

As Dr. Albert Ellis says, “It is certainly better to copulate.” But if you’re not in that position, here’s a booklet that will quiet your fears about pleasuring yourself.
