TOWELHEAD: A Nymphet Addicted to Masturbating




I saw Towelhead some years ago, and read the novel about two months ago. I recently re-watched the movie to compare it to the novel, and to write a post about them. The two are very similar and I can't say that one is better than the other; therefore, I'll concentrate on writing about the novel. 

On page four of the novel, Jasira, the 13-year-old protagonist, fantasized about running away with her step-father whom she was confident "liked" her more than her mother; so, she would be able to, "... wear whatever I wanted to the breakfast table."

By page 26 of the novel Jasira had become accustomed to masturbating by rubbing her legs together. The 13-year-old said, "After the second one came, I started trying for a third." 

On page 35 she found out that her 36-year-old neighbor, Mr. Vuoso, was going to cheat on his wife, but she said, "I just don't understand why it couldn't be [with] me."

However, by page 66 of the novel, Mr. Vuoso started precariously acting upon the mutual attraction between him and the nymphet. He took her virginity with his fingers, which in Jasira's eyes made her Mr. Vuoso's girlfriend. 



And beginning on page 231, Jasira describes how Mr. Vuoso, "... bit one of my nipples...put his penis in my mouth...Then he had me lie down beside the coffee table on my stomach and put his penis inside...[Then he] put his penis back in my mouth again...pulled his penis out of my mouth and pointed it a my face. Some of it went across my lips..."

Ironically, despite Jasira's proclivity to masturbating and sex, she was told repeatedly throughout the novel (over six times) and the movie, "You're too young to have a boyfriend (i.e. You're too young to be attracted to the opposite sex.),"  which is a recent mindset, because prior to the turn of the 20th century, Jasira and Mr.Vusos' "only" crime would have been fornication and adultery.
