I have a 12 going on 13 year old son. My husband started working out of town a lot so it's my son & I at home about 3 weeks out of the month alone. As of late, I've been finding my worn panties/thongs in his bedroom. I find 2 each time. One i think he might be smelling & the other he is using to masturbate with/in.
Is this normal for a boy his age? Should I try to talk to him about it or should I look into getting him help? The main thing is, I don't want to make him feel embarrassed.
Any advice would be appraised Thanks

While masturbating is totally normal, and sneaking panties is certainly not rare you should talk to him about taking your things. There will be embarrassment no matter what lol. If it's the feel of the panties that he enjoys maybe get him a sacrificial pair

You should be kind and gracious with him and take them off in front of him and give them to him as long as he promises not to take any more from you.

You are his mother so you need to draw a line, he is a maturing boy but you need to direct his sexual urges away from you personally. Maybe encourage him to peruse the internet for his material verses your hamper. You can also buy strangers used online. Draw the mother son line asap.

You could talk to him. Let him know what he's doing is normal -- he's becoming a man -- and you're proud of that. As someone else suggested, you could leave him an extra pair or two. It's no biggie.

He might be attracted to them because their feminine and he likes girls so anything feminine turns him on or it could be that he has some latent cross-dressing tendencies but that will all develop overtime no need to worry about it at this stage

Masturbating is normal.
Pinching your panties... two of them, my guess is you are right. That is not common, but I don't think it is much to be concerned about.

The pinching of your panties I would be concerned about, that is an invasion of your stuff. I do know some mums (has been mentioned on forums here) allow son to borrow mum's or sisters panties, but they must ask for them.

Porn, as Tracy said, that is very serious.

I have some more links that may be useful.

I'm glad you were able to speak to him about it and have opportunities to address it. I found this article that may be helpful in dealing with the porn issue. Here is link. http://bit.ly/2lJA37V
Totally up to you if you want to try it, but it is such a danger to our children. Will continue to pray for you to have opportunities to speak to him about it. ((Hugs)).

I have 3 boys all over that age now. I usually leave those talks to my husband as it is a little more embarrassing talking about those things with mom. I can say they did not take any of my things and do that. Although I think experimenting is normal, I am concerned about him not feeling the boundaries between you and your things. Is it possible for your husband to talk to him about it by phone or even next time he is home? If not, perhaps you can let him know gently it's not ok to take your things and ask him if he'd like to talk to someone about it. Growing up has lots of embarrassing moments and it's important for our kids to feel like they can come to us and talk to us about these issues, so you don't want to do anything that will make him close off. Also I would try to figure out if he has been introduced to porn in some way. I hate to even bring that up, but unfortunately today it is a very real problem and if not talked about will just get worse. With computers and media the way it is, we have to be very vigilant in protecting them from the dangers. Praying for you!
