When it comes to self-pleasure, it seems that, historically speaking, guys were regularly the ones pegged with tooting their own horns most often. But oh, how times have changed. According to Cosmopolitan Magazine, 40 percent of women say they actually prefer masturbating over having sex with a... Read more of this blog post »
