I’m amazed at this choice of words Tracy Moore. As a very proud woman who writes about sex, I would never use this term for masturbation. In particular female masturbation. Female masturbation very rarely looks like “beating it” and is more accurately described as self-pleasuring. Or maybe solo-sex. If your mission is to empower women to explore their sexuality and embrace it (mine definitely is), I would ask that you consider choosing your words to reflect this better. No one needs to masturbate, but if we keep on describing masturbation as “beating it off” I think many women will be discouraged from even trying.
