Jude Dry. It should be ongoing throughout our life, and we should honor it. The culprit: Donald Trump. Not at the hands of a man, or any partner for that matter, and — most importantly — with women as the masters of their own pleasure — not simply as a source of it for others. By that token, del Toro aimed to show sex in the least exploitative way possible, which extended to the ordinariness of the masturbation scenes. Fully clothed with a hand resting gently on her chest, Cyd does not writhe, moan, or deliver any of the phony trappings of pleasure often imagined for the screen. She needs a little bit of space to imagine herself into this slightly new place. The peach scene spawned cheeky memes, and led to speculation and admissions that Luca Guadagnino and Timothee Chalamet actually tested out the mechanics. They did.

May is National Masturbation Month, and we're celebrating with Feeling Yourself , a series exploring the finer points of self-pleasure. When it comes to TV and movies, scenes portraying women masturbating are basically straight out of a male director's sexual fantasy. More often than not, the woman writhes around on her back and she's usually moaning the moment her hand comes into contact with her vulva. If only it were that easy. Truth is: We don't masturbate like that. We're not always thrashing about on our backs making loud, fake orgasm noises. It's usually pretty mundane and unglamorous. And we can get pretty creative with positions and props depending on how we're feeling. Thankfully, times are changing — somewhat.
