The Autostraddle Team Maysturbation Survey Results Are In!

A+ member, you might be aware that May is Masturbation Month! Here at Autostraddle, we've always been here to help our community have the sex we want to have — and masturbation's a huge part of that. Whether you've read Vanessa's iconic article on practicing elaborate masturbation or watched Shelli's workshop on masturbation basics, you might be familiar with some of our work in this arena. But, you might wonder, what do we, ourselves do when it comes to masturbation? How often do we do it? What do we think about when we do? I asked our team of queer and trans staff, editors and writers to complete a 100% anonymous masturbation survey, and those results? They're below! Does anything surprise you? Ring true? We'd love to hear from you in...

You've Reached A+ Content!

Autostraddle cannot survive without reader support. That's why we have our A+ Member program and A+ content like this, as thanks to readers like you who keep Autostraddle here for our whole community. Will you join A+?

A+ members keep this site majority free-to-read, so sometimes we have bonus content for members as thanks! A+ membership starts at just $4/month or $30/year. If you can, will you join? You get access to bonus content like this post, insider information, behind-the-scenes laughs, and the singular satisfaction of knowing you’re helping to pay it forward for other readers and that you're keeping this bastion of queerness on the internet here for everyone.

99% of our readers do not support. That means that less than 1% of our readers are keeping this site running. Will YOU be one of the people who helps to keep this indie queer media site here for everyone?

We don't need one person to do it all, we need many people each doing a part. Every member makes a difference!

Autostraddle cannot exist without the generous support of our readers. We need to raise $175k in the next 2 weeks — or we won't make it to Pride. And a world without Autostraddle would be a loss on so many levels. Help us keep this indie queer media boat afloat! Every dollar helps.
