I want to talk about masturbation at the movies. Unfortunately, for most people, that invokes Jason Biggs sticking it to the titular American Pie or conversational dick jokes from Seth Rogen in, well, almost all of his films. The curious thing is, even though the films themselves deserve celebrating, are the depictions of one-on-one femme time just as great? Notable for being the last Peter Sellers film released while he was still alive, Being There also shows Shirley MacLaine getting to know herself. When he pushes her away, she tries to coax him into telling her what he wants. So, masturbation as mockery? When teen siblings David Tobey Maguire and Jennifer Reese Witherspoon are thrust into the black and white world of a s sitcom, they bring with them modern values and progression — much to the shock of the locals in the suppressed small town of Pleasantville. As teenagers start getting it on, objects and even people slowly come into colour. The scene ends with a burning bush for crying out loud. Diane furiously masturbates on the sofa, crying at the loss of the object of her desire and her inability to bring herself to climax.

Inspired by The Shape of Water, we survey the various ways female self-pleasure has been portrayed. I n pornography, female masturbation is a mainstay. Male fantasy dictates that it is almost always a titillating act for a man to watch before placing himself in the action. Accordingly, it tends to serve as an appetiser to the main dish of penetrative sex. Cinema, while generally less explicit, follows a remarkably similar line of logic on the subject of female self-pleasure. Women have long been denied the physical know-how or self-confidence to take responsibility for their own pleasure — a problem fostered by both Catholic and Freudian ideas about female sexuality. For as long as masturbation was seen as shameful or psychologically suspect, cinema largely reflected that by ignoring it altogether. When the gaze of the camera is male, the mannequins onscreen behave not only according to male fantasy, but to his ego.
