When men paint or take photos of women in the nude the results are generally accepted and celebrated as works of art.

That’s why it’s important to detect endometriosis early on and learn more about it.
Samantha from Sex and the City was a self-confessed fan of vibrators and other sex toys, and she embodied an almost pioneering attitude when it came to masturbation. Her character was an early sign, arguably, of a larger cultural shift toward the acceptance and normalization of masturbation. And yet decades later many women still have no experience of sex toys.
