Inspired by The Shape of Water, we survey the various ways female self-pleasure has been portrayed. I n pornography, female masturbation is a mainstay. Male fantasy dictates that it is almost always a titillating act for a man to watch before placing himself in the action. Accordingly, it tends to serve as an appetiser to the main dish of penetrative sex. Cinema, while generally less explicit, follows a remarkably similar line of logic on the subject of female self-pleasure.

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. There are bright spots on TV and in movies that show more realistic, more anatomically accurate, and much, much more relatable self-love sessions.

While sex scenes in movies are a dime a dozen, masturbation turns up less frequently, and more often with either embarrassing or hilarious results. While this is a debatable point, I would argue that with the exception of goofball comedies, masturbation scenes in movies are often more authentic than the partner sex scenes. It makes you wonder why some actors can do masturbation so much better than partner sex. The list below is an incomplete compilation of some of the best, worst, and most famous masturbation scenes in mainstream movies compiled with assistance from readers and the television sex culture pioneers at Sextv.
