Preventing unwanted pregnancies? Do you think that teaching girls to masturbate might deter them from the need to engage on sexual intercourse with random mates??? And why is it Ok to teach boys this but is wrong to teach girls????

  • I think so. It also ha=elps prevent them from thinking sex with a boy is the only way to get that feeling....knowing they can do it themselves.

  • I don't know. I think girls have sex for different reasons than boys do. Boys are just walking hard-ons at that age. But girls seem to be looking for an emotional connection. Many of them mistakenly believe that having sex with a boy will make the boy love them. I think it would be better to educate girls about the male brain. And about masturbation, too, because I think there it too much shame attached to it.

  • I think sex education and an open line of communication helps more than anything.

  • ummm no...teach them about birth control, how to put on a condom, and how to go to the ob/gyn and know that it is ok and safe to talk to them.

  • It might for some but I don't know that it would work for most. I had sex at 17 because I loved the guy I was with and I thought if i didn't have sex with him he would leave me. I realize now what a mistake that was but it had nothing to do with hormones.

  • For the early teen I don't think it has anything to do with pleasure. Peer pressure and being in the wrong place at the wrong time unsupervised has more to do with it.. Girls wanting to be cool, loved, accepted plays a bigger part.

    The old saying boys will be boys comes to mind so it appears more acceptable for boys to masturbate. As for girls, I think the image of it being a bad thing happens early on when moms find them "playing" with themselves and freaking out telling them it is "bad" and to not touch themselves...

    I don't think girls masturbating will keep them from having sex tho, I think girls getting in trouble with pregnancy has more to do with my first statement and lack of education/communication with/from parents...

  • I never told my daughter she couldn't masterbate and no, I don't think it will deter kids. My daughter though is scared crapless about boys, sex, and having a baby. She's 14.
