Everyone does it, and if they say they don't they're lying. It's a sacred thing. - Britney Spears

About Us

This is a website about Masturbation, the last great taboo.

Our intention is to create an online archive that takes a sometimes serious, sometimes light-hearted look at the subject of masturbation; as it has been documented in art, science, popular culture down through time and across continents.

We would like to be able to say that all this serves some lofty purpose for the betterment of humanity, but that would probably be stretching it a bit far. So all we can say is:
Enjoy everyone. Try not to be too shocked or offended. The simple fact is we're all doing it.
