In matters of sex, the young Taurus girl tends to deal in extremes. She is either very conservative or very precocious.
At one extreme, perhaps due to the loss or incapacitation of her mother, she may assume a great deal of responsibility. When she shares the duty of rearing brothers and sisters, she develops such an adult posture that she has little time for childhood games and few opportunities for sexual experimentation. With the responsibilities of an adult thrust on her, she will assume corresponding habits and attitudes. She then grows up too fast and becomes too conservative. She is probably the last girl in her class to give up her virginity (after Virgo and Capricorn).
On the other hand, the Taurus girl who has all the security and comfort she requires will experiment much earlier. On a dare she will masturbate with a carrot and try other novel means of self-gratification. She will associate with older boys because of her tomboy nature, and since she recognizes that they have more experience, she will gladly be the patient in the game of "doctor." She likes the feel of such thrills, and she usually continues to experiment clandestinely until she has made the rounds of the boys who "know how." She is fond of bawdy stories and will be one of the first to stand on the corner with a friend and exchange them.
During this time, Taurus develops her uncanny ability to choose trustworthy people with whom to share personal experiences. Her fear of being unacceptable requires discretion, even at this early age. She can usually recover if someone slips up and gossips about her behavior, but that person will never again win her confidence. By this time, her legendary temper is full-grown.
Young Taurus girls radiate exuberance and charm. They love to have their own way and are fond of gifts of affection. They are curious about their bodies and things sexual. They are also easily seduced. Once they discover that sex feels good, they may let their sexual appetities run away with them.
By adolescence, the Taurus girl is usually well-adjusted and able to handle her own life quite well. There is an element of self-love and self-preservation in her makeup that keeps her self-esteem high. As the woman emerges, she comes to cherish her body and the pleasures it can bring to her. Although it may take her awhile to develop a self-image she finds acceptable, she constantly tries to improve on what nature gave. She will exercise and diet to keep her body in shape.
Her appearance is very female, and she learns to walk with the bearing of a princess. She is one of the few girls in her class who doesn't seem too upset when she develops breasts and the boys begin to notice. Her natural knowledge of things sexual endears her to fellow classmates, and by the time she is in high school, she has decided what she wants. Although she has a basic drive to procreation, she seldom has the traditional teenage infatuation with motherhood. She will embrace motherhood eventually, since it provides her with security, a stable place in society, and companionship for her "golden years."
Much of her philosophy of life is developed by the time she graduates from high school. Her attitudes are strong; she can take people as they are, and she usually has an odd assortment of friends. It is during this time that she cements her down-to-earth character and comes to grips with the power of her temper.
