Last week, we talked about why douching isn't a great idea. Has anyone ever asked you that question? We bet you blushed a little. There is a lot more stigma attached to female masturbation than to the male version. As a result, many young women find it a hard topic to talk about, even with their close friends.

G ail Horalek, the mother of a 7th-grade child in Michigan in the US, has made international headlines by complaining that the unabridged version of Anne Frank's diary is pornographic and should not be taught at her daughter's school.

I had to look up what age kids are in the 7th grade. They're 12 to 13! They're only about a year younger than Anne was when she wrote of her vagina: "There are little folds of skin all over the place, you can hardly find it. The little hole underneath is so terribly small that I simply can't imagine how a man can get in there, let alone how a whole baby can get out! I mean, I was so distressed by my fanny's apparent minusculeness that I conducted a series of experiments with travel-size Body Shop shampoo bottles too big and hairbrush handles still too big. I eventually came to the conclusion that, in the presence of an actual penis, some pheromonal reaction would kick in and my vagina would magically expand like a lotus blossom an illusion of which, sadly, experience deflowered me.
Bless her she must have been mortified when you walked in. I am almost certain I did it at that age, I have done it for as long as I can actually remember and there's definitely nothing wrong with me.

Children as young as six learn to masturbate. It's wrong to associate masturbation with adulthood and sex because it's not quite the same. Not a very helpful comment - it's perfectly normal behaviour. Close menu.
