New York: It’s not an alien thing for ‘Gossip Girl’ star Taylor Momsen to talk about X-rated topics, and this time, she said that she promotes masturbation.

However, the 17-year-old star was surprisingly thoughtful in a new interview, even if she is still talking about X-rated subject matter.

“I’m a promoter of masturbation. Don’t sleep around – learn yourself first! Guys do, but girls don’t. And that’s why girls have so many bad experiences,” a daily quoted her as telling the Guardian.

Momsen, who has in the past called her vibrator her best friend, pointed out that “you can know your body, know yourself, know what feels good. You don’t have to give yourself away just to have sexual relevance.”

“Because 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,” the outspoken teenage star concluded.
