Women are forbidden to masturbate according to many religions. This has over time become a  way of controlling their sexuality.  To accept and talk about this topic is a very important step to celebrate a woman's sexuality. And thankfully, women have become increasingly vocal about these issues. But a lot more still needs to be done.

This is an attempt in that direction. By refuting the societal stigma surrounding masturbation and menstruation, we can ensure that a woman is not put down in the society because of her biological identity. So that she has a reason to celebrate that very identity.
