The Great Vibrator Scandal of 2010

I read articles sometimes that make my brain want to explode. A good example of that came when I read this piece on Slog. In short, 17-year old Taylor Momsen, best known for her role as Jenny Humphrey on Gossip Girl, recently dished to Disorder Magazine that she owns a vibrator, even calling it her “best friend”. Of course, the media are now all over Momsen’s ass about being underage and owning a sex toy.

Taylor Momsen with.... Vibrator hair?


Momsen’s confession is sparking headlines because she’s not technically of age to be in “possession” of a sex toy; typically, a person needs to be 18 years old to even enter an adult store. But, in the state where she lives, she is over the age of consent, and therefore of legal age to be having sex with a real penis. And that’s not even the worst part…

Of course, the most outraged voices are coming from right-wing Christians who have a thing or two to say about a 17-year old with an appetite for masturbation. In the piece on Deidre Behar wrote on the subject for FOX news, one guy even goes as far as to saying that “Taylor Momsen is projecting a negative image that will result in failure in her life. … many of these girls [that Momsen is influencing] will find out only too late that they’re following the wrong model.”

Wait, WHAT!? “Failure in her life” because she uses a vibrator? If there’ a direct correlation between vibrator use and failing at life, there would be a lot more women doing whatever people do when they’ve “failed” at life (what does that even mean, exactly?). As for her being underage, there are a million ways that Momsen could’ve gotten her hands on a masturbatory aide, as pointed out by Dan Savage and a reader in this article.

Construction Workers call this a Vibrator...


Momsen’s statement about being “bored of men” is being construed as being bored of sex. But maybe she’s just sick of the dating scene? As much as it was a ballsy (and now seemingly unwise) move for her to speak up about her personal life like that, this whole vibrator scandal is getting blown WAY out of proportion. We all know that if Justin Bieber admitted to spooning with his Fleshlight every night, the media would think it was charming – boys will be boys – but a 17-year old girl with a sex drive? God forbid. I know we all have more important things to worry about, like you know, wars and giant oil spills, but we better lock the girl up before she climaxes her way to hell…

Editor’s Note: Justin Bieber goes to sleep every night with TWO of his favourite masturbatory aides… his right and left hand… just saying.
