While I'm on the subject of Taylor, a brief side note: Taylor was absolutely right to argue: "I think women should equally be allowed to pleasure themselves as much as men. I think that if that has any more controversy than a man talking about pleasuring himself, then there's something wrong with the world". Contrary to what the media say, this comment is completely acceptable for a girl of her age because self-experimentation typically starts long before one turns 17. Onanistic habits in young boys are widely accepted, and it should be the same for girls; the issue of whether or not they're of the age of consent, which is the media's main cause for concern, is irrelevant when it comes to self-experimentation.
