It's the taboo topic that no one wants to talk about.How many of us moms actually have the time to masturbate where do you do it,would you let your child,what would you do if you walked in on your daughter fingering herself?



Does it make you uncomfortable to talk about or do you like to talk about,what's your take on it and do you do it??



If your daughter did it and wanted tips,would you give them?

I am a single mom, with two grown boys (20, 17) still live at home...Yes, I masturbate, an ugly divorce turned me very negative towards men, so I have become bisexual...I mostly do it in my bedroom...Not having daughters I can't talk about that, but I know I was an only child and my mom did not talk to me much about sex...and I vowed if I ever have daughters I will not be like my mom...Well god blessed me with two wonderful sons, however, I don't know anything about being a boy growing up, what they think and go through...I did accidently walk in on one of my sons masturbating, totally different than walking in on a daughter...I had no idea what to say....and yes I did catch myself staring momentarily, but quickly closed the door...

Today I was doing laundry. When i took a load of clothes into my 12 years old daughters room she was naked on her bed touching herself. I quickly apologized and walked back out. As I closed the door I said please lock your door next time hun. A couple minutes later she came to me and said her friends talk about masturbation but she don't know how and asked if I'd help her.....? Help? We have a very open relationship I've always said if she's big enough for questions she's big enough for answers???? Help please

Yes I do masturbate. And lately it's like I'm living my teen years again. I've always had since I was a little girl and always kept it a secret. That's how I was raised. But I made sure my daughter didn't have to go through the same. I had the talk with her quite early on and made sure she never felt guilty about it!

Some times three times a day. Out by the pool and in the bedroom. My husband works night the kids are at school.

I have answered several questions on masturbation.
You can search my history to see them.
But in direct answer to your questions.
Everyday I make sure I have some time to masturbate.
Bedroom mostly.
Of course I'd let my children - masturbation is good and healthy.
Often have I walked in on my daughters fingering themselves - good on them, it is good and healthy.

Being uncomfortable is the main issue regarding masturbation - why, why, why? That is the thing to fight. My mum raised me to know masturbation is normal and healthy, I'm passing that on to my children.

Last question - yes and I did. :)

Don't have an anatomy book. She asked last night if we are gonna talk about it. We're very open about everything.

I'd pull out the Grey Anatomy and talk her through a detailed explanation of our parts and what they do. No need for any live demonstrations LOL but a "focus on here" would help. It's good she came to you and not her friends. You can use this a good time to reinforce that it's her body and she grows at her speed, not to be pressured by friends

Taboo? I've never thought of it as taboo, people just have way too many hangups still, even 100+ years after the Victorian era

I never bother doing it because I don't have much of a sex drive unfortunately :-( My husbands is a lot higher, so if I'm in the mood I just have sex. And to be fair, if I'm turning down sex then masturbating on the side.. Pretty wrong. I read a lot of posts where that happens to women, and their pretty upset about it. He on the other hand is a masturbation fiend !! Lol I don't blame him, it's neither one of our faults my sex drive went Low and he still has needs & desires. So I'm very easy going & supportive of it. I've bought him some good toys & I'll stay downstairs watching T.V. with a glass of wine when he wants to get it on with himself. Works great for me !! Lol I get less he gets more everybody wins.

I have certain friends that I talk about anything with. We are very open with each other. Yes I masturbate. I do it when my husband is out of town. He can be gone for a few days or months. I am a very sexual person. And sometimes he likes me to do it when he is home. Yes I would talk to my girls about it if they had questions about it. I have 3 girls and we have just started the puberty and sex talk. They are at the age. I don't have a very close relationship with my mom. I want to have the close relationship with my girls that I didn't have with my mom. I am very lucky that my mother-in-law and I are very close.
