taylor001Taylor Momsen has advised girls to ‘get to know themselves’ intimately before jumping into the sack.

The Gossip Girl star insisted that she’s a ‘promoter of masturbation’ and urged young girls to give it a go.

Momsen, 17, told The Guardian, “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.

“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.”
