I think I owe it to Sisterhood readers to click on, and link to, a post with the title, “These Jewish Women Think You Should Masturbate.” It’s not every day I see such a headline, but today just happens to be — as I learned from Bella Book’s JWA post — the final day of “both Jewish American Heritage Month and National Masturbation Month.” The latter was the brainchild of Joani Blank, founder of San Francisco’s Good Vibrations, and — you guessed it — Jewish woman.
Yesterday, the New York Times published an article about a pill that is being marketed as a “female viagra,” to increase female sexual desire for women who might not be feeling aroused as often as they would like, or as they feel they should. The drug is, understandably, controversial, partly because it has a high rate of side effects without much record of success, but also because it suggests that there is something pathological about a lack of female desire that needs to be medicated.
