Making Masturbation Mainstream

17.12.20

Have you ever masturbated? We know men do it…. We know women do it too, except we don’t talk openly about it. Why? Are we ashamed to admit that we have sexual desires?

On this second episode of Something Private, Dr. Angela Tan, a certified sexpert joins them to talk about why some women feel ashamed for masturbating and why that needs to change!

Beyond just achieving simple orgasmic pleasure, we discuss how masturbating can have mental and physical benefits too.

A Philanthropist’s Mission to Empower Survivors of Sex Trafficking

60,000 women and minors are estimated by UNICEF to be victims of sex trafficking in the Philippines, with some as young as 7 years old. Rebecca Eu is on a mission to stop this.⁠

Rebecca — who has been volunteering in the Philippines since she was 20 — has heard one too many stories of girls forced into this sex trade to help lift their families out of poverty. ⁠

Today, her social enterprise Mei’s Own is putting survivors of sex trafficking in the Philippines to school by working with local artisans to make homeware.⁠

“In sickness and in health” holds another layer of meaning for Marcel and Caitlin. He’s HIV-positive, and she’s not. But medical advancements have allowed them to have an active and safe sex life. Their greatest concern? An unwanted pregnancy. Caitlin shares with Something Private how they navigate through the challenges of everyday couples, from maintaining a long-distance romance and dating across their own cultures.

This season, Something Private features unique stories about love. December is HIV Awareness Month, and we hear the story of Caitlin and Marcel, a mixed status couple on how they’re breaking the stigma on people living with HIV.

There’s a misconception that disabled persons can’t have sex, or have no sexual desires. Truth is, they’re just like any of us, with the same intimacy wants and needs.

Zohra and Liang Le spent most of their lives able-bodied, until a car accident and spine condition led them to becoming wheelchair users. While most 20-something-year-olds grapple with finding themselves and looking for independence, Zohra and Liang Le’s quest looks slightly different.

In this episode, they share about navigating life in a wheelchair, prejudices they’ve faced from able-bodied persons, and their experience with love and intimacy. (Yes, they can have sex!)
