I will spare you the details but I came home from running errands and found my 16 yr old son masturbating with my vibrator. I was so shocked I just scolded him for using other people's things without asking. Guess my brain couldn't process the full scene.
Now I'm freaking out I handled it totally wrong. I want to comfort him but afraid to bring it up with him.
What should I do?

Chances are... it was certainly as awkward for him as it was for you. If you've already discussed masturbation in a healthy way, and transmission of diseases and infections... surely he realizes why you've reacted in the way you have. If not, when you have courage and a moment alone... explain that you were caught off guard and didnt react appropriately. Ask him to make sure he is taking care of himself by not exposing himself to risks of infection, and explain how what he did had done that. If he has additional questions about it, he will come to you. In terms of... uh.... taking care of himself... he should be fairly independent and competent by now.
