Jane Langton – Director, The Centre for Sex and Sexuality

I feel like I’ve been dying to tell the story for a very long time. And as I was preparing for this, I wondered how much of my personal story should I, or would I dare to share. You see, for me to convey the impact of silence surrounding sexuality, I knew I needed to tell my own story. The thought of doing it though scares the hack out of me.

And as much as I do share my personal stories, I never imagined sharing something so private in such a public space. But I’m inspired to do it because I see the positive impact I have on those when I do. And this feeds my soul. So here goes.

I masturbate. And I masturbate regularly. I have most of my life. I used to joke around with my friends that my right arm was much stronger than my left. You see, I am very right-handed. I use this arm and this hand.

But about eight months ago, my life became overwhelmingly busy, and I wondered if that was it for me. I thought menopause, stress, exhaustion, because it was taking me far too long and I was too tired to do it. But I eventually listened to my own advice and realized that or acknowledged that all of those things can affect my sexual health and my general health. Unfortunately for now I’m back on track.
