"Given the extremely high percentage of men and women, of all ages, who masturbate at least sometimes, it is almost certainly worth having this direct conversation about where masturbation fits into your sex life. "
I appreciate that the author framed the topic in this egalitarian way. Many articles on this topic make it sound like it's always only the men in relationships who masturbate, and always only the women who complain/judge/police their partners for doing this. Men might like to think they're the only ones in a relationship who like to "get off" by themselves sometimes, but that simply isn't true.
