Pleasantville Masturbation

Pleasantville is a 1998 motion picture in which two present day teenagers - Tobey Maguire and Reese Witherspoon - find themselves inexplicably catapulted back in time to the idyllic world of a 1950's sitcom. Here they must adjust to new surroundings and the much more wholesome values compared to their own world.

Except being modern day teenagers their presence inevitably has a corrupting influence; such as in this scene where Reese Witherspoon takes her screen mother aside for a heart-to-heart chat about the sort of things all girls have to learn about at some stage. Take it away Joan Allen.

Masturbation doesn't feature that often in mainstream Hollywood movies but this one handles topic intelligently, humorously and well.
