I'm not asking girls who masturbate to come on here and say it. I was asking the girls who don't to state their reasons (genuinely curious). As girls don't seem to have a problem saying they don't masturbate so I figured people may be willing to share why. I don't see why girls would lie on here because it's kind of anonymous. It's in real life with friends when they all claim they don't.
I'm not saying there's anything wrong with the curiosity. But it still doesn't make sense logically. Despite the anonymity, you're asking people who don't admit to masturbating to explain why they won't admit it, which by definition means they admit they masturbate and goes against the whole "won't admit it" thing.
Despite anonymity, there's still plenty of things that people won't talk about. Ignoring the fact that I don't even trust the anonymity system here, there are a bunch of things I'd never talk about openly online.

The reason why I ask is because guys are so open about masturbation and sex. Girls are also quite open about sex when talking to their close friends but so many deny that they masturbate. Contributing to the idea that it's taboo.
I somewhat disagree. I don't think guys are really open about sex and masturbation. A lot more guys are open to making sexual jokes and slurs and a lot more guys are open to bragging about sex but I don't hear many guys actually talking about sex and masturbation. In general I don't hear people discussing it.
I also feel (without trying to be disrespectful) that there are different types of people who will openly discuss it. For example guys (or girls) who are out on a Friday night to get laid are more likely to socialise with other people of that type. Thus they will be more likely to talk about it or even help each other out. It's a stereotypical jump to make but I don't see that steretype frequenting TSR.
To extend that though, how can you say guys do talk about masturbation frequently and girls don't? With all due respect, I don't imagine you have a large sample size. I'm going to assume it's a guy asking, how do you know girls aren't telling other girls about masturbation? Not trying to sound like an ass but the entire premise of the question sounds like it's based on flawed assumptions and tiny sample sizes. Granted, I don't exactly have a lot of experience discussing masturbation with either gender but from what I understand, neither one is particularly forward in initiating real conversation.
Of course if this is something you're really interested in, you aren't the first asking this question. It's been asked many times before so have a read around and you'll find some answers. I'm hesitant to say you'll get much help here, because no matter how much you say you're just interested, I'm sure a lot of girls will pass because it looks pervy.
EDIT: Unrelated side note, not sure how I feel about being able to comfortably write paragraphs regarding the mysteries of the female mind and female masturbation habits on a Saturday night. I probably have better things to do. How did I even get here...
