Do you know what turns you on? Are you ashamed or scared of it?
I thought I’d sexually matured over the course of a fifteen-year marriage, but in the midst of divorce I discovered I still struggled with masturbation.
At almost forty, I was embarrassed that I was embarrassed to touch myself.
I decided to masturbate once a week for a year, on film, as research into my own experience of sexual shame and repression.

“Masturbation Monday is by turns joyful, erudite, sensual, and hilariously funny. Jupiter confronts her own sexual conditioning, in all its cringe-inducing but deeply important detail. This story made me laugh and cry, out loud, as it resonated with the modern, ever-conflicted, feminist in me.” -Lynsey G, author of Watching Porn: And Other Confessions of an Adult Entertainment Journalist
“Masturbation Monday is a funny, passionate and daring exploration of sexual liberation.” -Rachel Kramer Bussel, author of Sex and Cupcakes: A Juicy Collection of Essays
