Amid news that a woman who crashed her Mini Cooper into the back of a fish van was masturbating with a vibrator, here are some other cringeworthy masturbation stories for you to enjoy.
A group of women came together to discuss their worst experiences of the sexually stimulating variety. One recalled enjoying such self-indulgent pleasures on board airplanes, in cars, during meals and even in the company of her parents.

Another interviewee revealed how her group of friends used to throw parties and all "do it together", though she insists she did not partake in the routine.
