Tiny girl sex
Lena Dunham is certainly not someone whose work I seek out regularly — I am a fan insofar as she's a hardworking woman in a male dominated industry, but that's about it. I did a lot of weird things when I was trying to figure out what my vagina was, and what the strange tickle feeling that began happening between my legs meant.
I went through puberty at 10 years old, and it's important to remember that for a lot of girls, puberty happens before you're ready for it, and before anyone has even bothered to tell them anything about the way their body works.
Again, this is all part of children figuring out the sex and body things that no one will talk to them about (or hasn't thought yet to talk to them about).
It doesn't mean they're lesbians or not lesbians or molesters or freaks. Sexual discovery is part a natural and insatiable curiosity, but too often it's stifled by society's backwards ideas about what a girl should be and how she should be it.
The movie date would escalate, and we'd begin kissing our respective pillow boyfriends, and then finally dry-humping them.
It was a crude simulation of what we were piecing together about sexuality, and we were most certainly not molesting each other by virtue of having a sexual exploration in the same room.
It means that they've found a comfortable place from which to try out some of the things they've heard about adults doing. Growing up, I had many purely science based encounters with girl friends: what do your boobs look like? Boys, or should I say, straight boys, are allowed to flourish sexually from whenever they begin noticing their penis gets hard from time-to-time, which basically means their whole lives. We teach little girls that their sex is shameful, we teach them to hide it, so that when one of them does come out and say "I experimented, I was curious, I masturbated" we can burn her at the stake.
Girls, on the other hand, are taught, whether overtly or by passive societal conventions, that there's something inherently wrong with being sexually aware.
