Hi Beth, have you talked to him about it yet or are you just ignoring what he is doing when he is doing it in hopes that he will stop. Sounds like he might be trying to "get a rise" from you. The best way to approach this is to sit down (when he is not masturbating of course) and discuss where is appropriate (int he privacy of your room/bathroom with the door closed) and how his doing this in public isn't appropriate.then take it from there. When you talk to him focus on how it makes you feel "I feel uncomfortable when you...." rather than "that's not right" which will make him more defensive and might make the behavior increase. Let me know if this helps....I've been down this road before and it worked for me.

He is doing it under a blanket in the same room that I am in, It isn't really bugging me, but he is doing it multiple times a day and my whole house smells, and I can't get rid of the smell.
