A blogger who claims teenagers should be taught how to masturbate has slammed sex education for failing to properly educate young girls.
Nadia Bokody, a Sydney-based sex expert, said sex education fails to teach girls 'about pleasure'.
Ms Bokody said parents should be giving their teenage girls vibrators so they can learn about their bodies in privacy.
'The fact is, the school sex ed curriculum massively fails our kids - girls in particular - when it comes to preparing them for the realities of sex,' she said.

'While boys learn about erections and wet dreams, the content around girls sex ed tends to focus on menstruation and pregnancy prevention.
'As boys grow, they learn it's acceptable, even praised, to joke about masturbation. They're empowered to know what does and doesn't feel good and to seek it out.
Meanwhile girls grow into young women who see masturbation as dirty and sex as a performative act to be given to men,' she said.
Ms Bokody said '30 per cent of young women are currently having painful sex', and blamed it on a culture that teaches sex is a service to be performed.
'Imagine if we taught them that their bodies are their own, that we let them discover in the privacy of their own bedrooms on their own what pleasure actually feels like so they could speak during sex,' she said.
'Imagine if we provided them with a safe alternative to having partnered sex before they're psychologically ready.'

Ms Bokody disputed claims from her critics that she was encouraging young children to have sex.
'Far from it. I couldn't agree more with the parents out there saying teens are too young to be having sex,' Ms Bokody said.
It's easy to hope if we simply ignore it, the problem will go away. But it's not going anywhere.
