Actually , it used to be much more normal.
Not so long ago it wasn't abnormal to masturbate in public.

When you say "not so long ago," how long ago are we talking about here?

Let's say before the Catholic church became a power(hierarchy). And burned most ancient books (celts, mores, early christians,...) to become the only religion.
We are talking 400 - 500 after christ.
Even later.

This is from JackinLibrary:
Sexuality began to suffer a stigma with the growing influence of the Christian Church. Such figures as the apostle Paul (of the first century Current Era), Augustine (354-430 CE), and Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) contributed to increasingly negative attitudes toward the human body and all forms of pleasure in general. Paul fostered misogyny, or anti-female sentiments, starting a trend of condemning all forms of sexuality other than heterosexual intercourse for the purpose of reproduction. This continued an existing philosophical trend of separating the physical and the spiritual, considering them as conflicting opposites. Augustine institutionalized the religious distaste for sexual union itself, while Aquinas particularly vilified homosexuality. An early medieval manual of punishments to be bestowed by priests prescribed severe penalties for men over 20 who engaged in mutual masturbation. Men under that age were punished less severely, and boys under 14 engaging in solo masturbation were punished the least. Other writers on JackinWorld have dealt with the fact that the Bible itself never mentions masturbation specifically: the "sin" of Onan was clearly coitus interruptus, or early withdrawal to prevent conception. Still, this misconception persists.

There is nothing wrong in exploring self-pleasuring techniques like masturbation, and the men that refuse to let their wives to it are very insecure.

In the late 19th/early 20th century, vibrators were sold in most store catalogs (e.g., Sears) as cures for hysteria, a condition medical science believed women were susceptiable to. Vibrators were thought to be a home remedy, in lieu of a woman actually scheduling an appointment with her physician for a massage treatment. (Yes, the docs would actually frig the woman off.) Such "treaments" were really thought of as medicinal cures, and not associated with sex at all.

The perception of vibrators as medical devices continued until they started appearing in early porn movies of the era.

You seem to have had less than great experiences with men. Open up and stop being so bitter!
