TOWELHEAD: A Teen Addicted to Masturbating


We read Towelhead  and watched Towelhead (2007). The two are very similar, and we can't say that one is better than the other; therefore, we'll concentrate on the novel and share some GIFs from the film.

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 of the New York Times Notable Book, 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 film, "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 - their age difference would have been irrelevant.


Interestingly, like Jasira, who masturbated during her middle-school class and to porn, Erica Garza shared in Getting Off, her memoir, that after she asked to be excused from class, she would masturbate in her private high school's bathroom, and she masturbated at home to streaming porn that featured cheerleaders, schoolgirls and teen lesbians.
