Shailene Woodley has some controversial advice for preventing and lowering the rates of teen pregnancy.
In a new interview with Net-a-Porter's The Edit, the Divergent star said masturbation should be part of the school curriculum for young girls.

“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," she said.
“If masturbation were taught in school, I wonder how [many] fewer people would get herpes aged 16, or pregnant at 14?”
This is hardly the first time Shailene spoke candidly about genitals in public. She previously opened up about sunbathing her vagina.
“Another thing I like to do is give my vagina a little vitamin D. I was reading an article written by an herbalist I studied about yeast infections and other genital issues," she said.
"She said there’s nothing better than vitamin D. When the sun finally comes out, spread your legs and get some sunshine!”
