Taylor Momsen's Advice To Girls: Don’t Sleep Around…Masturbate!

The Pretty Reckless singer wants girls around the world to know it’s okay to touch themselves instead of giving it all away to a guy who doesn’t care!

By now, everyone is used to 17-year-old Taylor Momsen‘s potty mouth, outrageous behavior and opinionated manner. We all wish she’d shut up, but the rock tart isn’t letting life go by without sharing the benefit of masturbation with girls who are just coming into their sexuality.

In a recent interview with The Guardian, Taylor opened up about having sex with yourself  before bringing someone else into the bedroom.

“I’m a promoter of masturbation,” she said. “Don’t sleep around – learn yourself first! Guys do, but girls don’t. And that’s why girls have so many bad experiences. But you can know your body, know yourself, know what feels good. You don’t have to give yourself away just to have sexual relevance.”

It’s a little awkward for anyone, especially a 17-year-old to talk so openly about an act many might feel shamed by, but Taylor says to be proud and embrace sex as a fact of life.

“I don’t think sex is something people should be afraid of. It’s part of human nature, so I don’t think it should be so shameful – particularly for girls and young girls,” she said.

We can’t decide if Taylor’s message is positive or just another attempt for her to shock the general public, either way we still think she needs to keep her mouth shut.

Some of the negative comments on here are proof of the sexism in modern society. If she were a male talking about sex, it would be accepted. Boys masturbate and this is fact, but a female does it and she is a slut? Sex is an important part of puberty and young girls do and will have sex, best they know that they can talk about it in order to be safe and satisfied.

im not really a fan of the “new” taylor momsen, but in a way she does have a point. My moms a nurse and she always says that people dont care to learn about their bodies, which shouldnt be the case. Besides how can you get someone else to pleasure you when you dont even know yourself.

Taylor momsen is amazing, her music is amazing, and she is amazing, she is right by what she is saying. i dont get why every one is hating her, just because she doesnt hide what she thinks like many disney stars.

Love her. She is right. I have no toys, I’m 23, but it would be preferable for parents if their teens were using toys alone.

I think Taylor has made a good point, but to the wrong audience. Girls who are just coming into womanhood, shouldn’t have to be concerned with sex and/or masturbation. However, I think a responsible and mature adult woman can easily make the decision whether or not she thinks masturbation is right for her before jumping into a bedroom relationship.

My opinion — the bottom line is, let’s leave masturbation talk to the adults and let teens be teens and enjoy themselves without having to worry about the pressures of sex.

Like it or not, teens are sexual beings. You can’t expect someone to wait until they’re 18 or 21 to have or express sexual thoughts and desires.

Oh please, do you know how many teens get pregnant and don’t even graduate high school every year? A lot. Teens are sexual beings, get in touch with reality. You should start learning about your body as a teen instead of groping in the dark with some boy who pressures you into having sex. For once Taylor is saying the right thing. BTW in the U.K. they are trying to encourage teens to try masturbation instead of having full blow sex. In the U.S. we still have our heads buried in the sand thinking teens are sexual beings.

It’s true, TEENS ARE SEXUAL BEINGS! That’s just something adults will have to learn to accept. They are humans with sexual desires and they need some type of way to express their sexuality in order to develop into healthy adults.

You honestly think that? Whether you want to believe it or not, teens are sexual beings. Speaking as a teen myself, I’m being straight-up that sex isn’t an abnormal conversation among us and a lot of us do have it. I’m not one of them, but… Okay I’m running out of things to say here that make this sound like a good argument, bottom line is you’re just plain wrong. -_-
