The singer-and-actress - who began modelling aged just two years old - had a Catholic education and admits sex was rarely discussed but she believes everyone should be open about their urges and desires.
She said: "I went to a super-repressed Catholic school. That was something I had to overcome actually - they really f***ing make you feel like sex is wrong, but I think it`s natural.
"My best friend`s my vibrator. I don`t date anyone, so why not? Guys can masturbate - why can`t girls? I don`t understand why it makes people uncomfortable. Sex is a part of life - it shouldn`t be so scandalous."
Taylor, 17, also insisted her parents are not concerned about her wild behaviour and provocative image.
She added to Britain`s Grazia magazine: "My style`s not for everyone - I`m an extremist. But my mom loves fashion, so she gets it.
"My dad is the one who introduced me to rock `n` roll, playing me The Beatles and The Who. They know that sex and rock `n` roll go together - you can`t have one without the other."
