...involuntary ‘waste of seed’ in dreams at night. Since the main objection to masturbation is because of ‘waste of seed’ there are hardly any references in the sources to female masturbation and, indeed, there is no explicit condemnation of this in the Rabbinic sources. Human nature being what it is, it is hard to believe that all observant Jews avoided the practice.

...masturbation Sexual self-stimulation, a common human behavior associated with much adolescent guilt and angst. It is usually harmless but can have adverse psychological consequences. In 1997 , the US Surgeon General remarked that masturbation is free from risk of sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy and should not be condemned as an adolescent activity. Although scientifically valid, the remark implied approval, which was morally unacceptable to some, and the Surgeon General was forced to resign. ...
