Gina says much of her anxiety around the issue was due to the strict purity culture she was brought up in, but she no longer feels that way.

“It’s OK to look back in retrospect and be like, it wasn’t good that I felt bad about touching myself. And it isn’t bad that I want to share my love with my boyfriend.

“I’m 32 years old, I’m an adult, I can do that!”
