Taylor Momsen, 16-year-old anti-role model, apparently has a loud mouth and a BFF vibrator. Not that anyone really cares about celebrities, but we can occasionally learn something from them. In this case, teen sexuality. Specifically, teen girls’ sexuality because most of the world seems to feel that it doesn’t exist, or shouldn’t. Dudes everywhere are jacking off right now (creepy right?) but young ladies everywhere seem to think that masturbating is gross and pleasure can only come from their boyfriends/husbands. Lies! And as far as I know, this Momsen girl is the only young girl out there that has no shame in not only embracing her individual sexuality, but also talk about it like it’s no big deal. If you know anyone else, please let us know. The fact that she isn’t boy-crazy and can just be happy with herself is close to unheard of these days. Where did she go right?

Broadsheet’s Mary Elizabeth Williams says it best:

But girls? We hit our first stirrings of big league horniness, and think the guy who scratches that itch is a miracle worker. It must be the real thing – I feel it in my bathing suit area! Some might get aggressively in your face about their newfound wantonness, possibly because many females are accustomed to being displayed and shared. Being sexual just for yourself, on the other hand, is something that takes a lot of ladies a long time to embrace. Maybe if we had a few more Rabbit Pearls in our hands, we wouldn't be so eager to cash in our V cards -- and even avoid a few teen pregnancies along the way.

 Preach it, wise lady! Her whole post on Salon is worth the read.

 If only there were a more positive influence for girls so they could learn a little self-love.
