If anatomy is destiny, then man is destined to masturbate. He may do it with guilt and the torments of hell pounding in his ears, but he does it anyway. That is how men are, we shrug, animals, driven by their testosterone. Society says it is not how women are. Since time began, a “good mother” takes her daughter’s hand away from her vagina with far more determination than she applies to her son and his penis. Mothers know everything there is to know about being a woman: Nice Women don’t masturbate.
When I was writing My Mother/My Self fifteen years ago, I thought economic independence, more than anything, would help grown women throw off the emotional need to lose themselves in relationships. Ideally, emotional separation and individuation is something that should be learned and practiced in the first years of life. But if we didn’t get it then, all is not lost; it is harder later on, but we can teach ourselves. What I didn’t realize in the mid-seventies however, was that women would confuse economic independence with honest emotional separation.

Is it love/romance we want or is it sex? Wouldn’t it be helpful to know, and also to know that we can have the one without the other? Maybe it’s preferable to love the person with whom you are having sex, but not necessarily all the time.
