Did You Ever Talk to Your Mom About Masturbation?

Dr. Laura Berman was back on Oprah yesterday talking about — what else? — sex. Only this time she was teaching the importance of talking to your kids about sex. Having the birds and the bees talk is definitely an uncomfortable and scary thing to do, but Dr. Berman feels that if you haven't already broached the subject with your teen, you could be making a huge mistake.

Through diagrams and open dialog, she helped mothers break the ice about sex and sexual pleasure, but one controversial thing she recommends parents do is talk and teach their kids about masturbation. It seemed like everyone in the audience was extremely uncomfortable with the idea of this and I have to agree — I don't recall my mother ever talking to me about pleasuring myself! Now I might be in the minority here, so tell me ladies, did you talk about masturbation with your parents when you were a kid? And do you plan on talking with your children about it?
