“I Touch Myself” is a song written and recorded by the Australian rock band Divinyls. It was released in December 1990 as the lead single from their fifth album, diVINYLS, and is widely regarded as a paean to female masturbation. The single achieved great success, reaching the Top five on the U.S Billboard Hot 100 and reaching the number one position in their native country, Australia. The song was written by Divinyls bandmembers Christina Amphlett and Mark McEntee and professional songwriters Tom Kelly and Billy Steinberg. It has since been covered by numerous artists.
