Dear Betty and dear Carlin,

I just watched your scenes from the Trekant episode (via the link you provided) and just wanted to thank you both with all my heart for doing this! I live in Germany which is probably similarly laid back about sex in general but female masturbation and vulvas are rarely discussed. I sincerely hope that this documentary is going to be dubbed in several languages because the information and images are so important.

My girlfriends and I have never talked about masturbation, it just doesn't seem like a appropriate topic. WHY IS THAT? Your website has helped me so much in recognizing my unconscious attitudes towards masturbation and orgasm. Just as I learned recently during a meditation program: "Your biggest obstacle is probably going to be expectation." I used to think that I've never orgasmed but I begin to wonder if I've just had exaggerated notions of what it should feel like.

I've started to take time out for practising masturbation more and am concentrating on just feeling what's there without constantly wondering, was that it? The big O?

I wish you the very best for your future work and the website, and happy orgasms :-)
