Hey, There’s a Fun New Word for Female Masturbation

Hey, There’s a Fun New Word for Female Masturbation:

Last year, the Swedish Association for Sexuality Education, or RFSU, decided that as the Swedish language didn’t have a proper word for female masturbation, one needed to be invented.

Speaking with HuffPo, RFSU spokeswoman Kristina Ljungros said “When it comes to masturbation, people mostly think about just men doing it and we don’t think of it as common for women. If we don’t have a word in the language, how can we even talk about it?”

The RFSU welcomed the nation’s women to submit their own suggestions, and from a shortlist of forty words “klittra” won by a landslide, besting other favorites like “runka” and “pulla.” As the contest is closed, might we suggest that the runners-up be recycled as names for IKEA furniture?

The final step to getting “klittra” recognized the world over is to have it officially entered into the Swedish dictionary, and RFSU is campaigning hard to get “klittra” included in the next edition. Speaking with The Local Sweden, Kristina Ljungros talked about the next steps to getting “klittra” included in the local lexicon.

“We are trying to put sexuality on the agenda - the positive aspects, not just the negative ones like sexual abuse. We want to focus on the good parts, the lust,” she said.

“When it comes to masturbation, people mostly think about just men doing it and we don’t think of it as common for women. If we don’t have a word in the language, how can we even talk about it?”

Amen to that, sister!
