That and girls doing it isn't nearly as common as guys seem to think it is
Actually it is very common - many do it far more than guys due to depression.

Because there's still some sort of taboo on girls being sexual, we're getting there with the slut shaming thing but in terms of self pleasure, I think there's just no progress. Girls masturbating hasn't be normalised like it is for boys. For boys, they're an encouraged while society makes it seem like it's kinda dirty or weird thing for girls to do. Girl's arent even taught that much about their own vagina, yet alone masturbation.
Oh it is because girls believe they are meant to have a partner rather than be single and get off themselves. If you **** as a girl, you should apparently be ashamed. Here is why;
If you **** as a guy, it is accepted as men are portrayed as some testosterone sex fuelled beast.
But girls are portrayed as these vestal virgins that are as innocent as a lamb etc, when the truth is that many are more horny then guys. However due to insecurities, they won't admit to it. Also many find it easier to just get a guy they don't really like rather than play with themselves
You also have the issue of many girls not being able to orgasm due to issues. Guys don't really have this issue, but many girls do and again, they don't want to admit it or deal with it (who would?) so they pretend they don't masterbate, thus avoiding the "how do you find it" follow up questions or any awkward dealings.
In short, there needs to be more honesty about girls sexuality, and the entire "slut shaming" rubbish is crippling this as it is going from one extreme to the other. People need to admit that girls are just like guys - most want sex, most masterbate, but most don't want to sleep around like some skank.

I agree with you on that. I'm Asian and some of my white friends talk a lot about what they did last night at so and so's party and who did what with who. It disgusts me, I really don't care what happens. It's the norm to talk about how many times you got caked or your regular ******* sessions during free periods. The majority of us try to stay out of those conversations because they are so graphic and include every aspect of the whole experience.
90% is bs though. Most of the time people who say that do so in order to hide the facts that it was a) crap, or b) didn't happen.

I don't know! I have friends who are like 'Ew no I'd never do that... It would be like fingering another girl'.. I mean honestly 22/23 year old women who think masturbating will turn them into raging lesbians. These are also the girls who are 'not sure' if they've ever had an orgasm
. Makes sense.
This is a lot of the issue. Many girls now are very uptight about sex and have a lot of issues over it, thus preventing them from actually orgasming. How to solve such a problem is a mystery as you don't want to advocate ****s, but young women who have never ograsmned is symptomatic of much larger problems.
