After publishing my piece (and video) about having a transvaginal ultrasound, a friend send me the below South Park song (based on KONY 2012 filmmaker Jason Russell’s public meltdown) as a warning about the potential consequences. I haven’t been able to get it out of my head since.

Other songs about (non-public) masturbation that you might also enjoy include: The Divinyls’ “I Touch Myself”; Cyndi Lauper’s “She Bop”; Tweet’s “Oops (Oh My)” featuring Missy Elliott; Billy Idol’s “Dancing With Myself”; and the Violent Femmes’ “Blister In The Sun.” Yes, I do have a playlist of those on my computer.
