Sticky the Movie: A Documentary on Masturbation

I haven’t seen this documentary in its entirety yet – only the trailer – but it looks like an interesting and, dare I hope, liberating and informative look at masturbation as it’s been regarded in various societies (with a particular focus on Western cultures, it seems). They certainly reached out to a lot of great voices on the topic including Joycelyn Elders (former US Surgeon General), Carol Queen, Betty Dodson, Our Bodies Ourselves’ Wendy Sanford and Judy Norsigian, Nina Hartley and many more.

Check out the trailer above and learn more about the documentary on their web site. Individuals and couples might find this gives them something to talk about and it’s certainly a must-screen for human sexuality educators, professors, etc.
