It's been years since we took sex ed, but we don't remember any classes teaching us how to masturbate. (The closest we got was putting putting condoms on bananas—how realistic!) If it were up to Shailene Woodley, though, sex education in schools would look very different. In an interview with Net-A-Porter, the actress and activist stressed the importance of schools talking about female pleasure: 

"As a young woman you don’t learn how to pleasure yourself, you don’t learn what an orgasm should be, you don’t learn that you should have feelings of satisfaction. I’ve always had a dream of making a book called There’s No Right Way to Masturbate."

We hear you, Shailene. Sex is supposed to be pleasurable (for everyone involved), and it’s really silly that masturbation is such a taboo topic.
