Talking to Mothers About Masturbation

Would You Talk to Your Mother About Masturbation?

Talking to your mom about sex can be hard enough. Though an open relationship and sex-positive mom can make all the difference, it's an inevitably squeamish topic to broach. And if there's one thing more private than sex, it's masturbation. Yet I know people who've dished with their moms, albeit, with mixed results.

Masturbation seems a lot like reading a book to me — you just pick one and try to get into it. What's a girl looking for from mom? Recommendations!

Both my parents were naturists. Bodies were normal and we would discuss ex but masturbation talk was confined to discussions with my sister.

No. Never. Not in a million years! Because I know if I did, EVERYONE else would hear about it 30 seconds later.

I just couldn't bring myself to have this conversation with her. I know way too much about their sex life as it is and don't need her providing me any more unwanted details.

Not with my mom. LOL.I don't know, I have no problem talking about sex with her, but when it comes to pleasing myself, I don't feel comfortable having that discussion.

We talk about sex. Alot. But never masturbation. She has made it very clear that she does NOT do it, and thinks that it's gross, nasty, etc. I don't need her judging that aspect of me, so we just don't bring it up.

Haha I remember I went with one of my best friends Alexis when we were 19 to buy her first (toy) she was so nervous. When we got back to her place I said to her mom boy you should see what Alexis bought. Her mom said let me see and she shyly pulled a purple vibrator out of a paper sack. Her mother exclaimed oh $hit that's a nice one, lol.

Other than acknowledging that it's normal and nothing to be ashamed of, I don't see the necessity of a discussion. I don't want any suggestions from my mom!
