My son masturbates daily he is 13 years of age and I was wanting to know is this safe for his health lf not what do I do?

Ignore it: Other than encouraging him to limit the activity to his private time, let him be. It is a normal part of emerging sexuality & more prevalent in early teens. As he makes his way through the confusing transition to adulthood, he will hear the multitude of myths about the activity. You don't need to focus any more negativity on the practice than he will get from his own sources. ...Read more

15 yo son masturbates a lot and then gets sad and tells me. Told him it's ok but he still gets down. Think he also likes a boy. Should I ask him?

Friendly chat: Ask him why he feels sad after masturbating? Perhaps he is getting input from someone else who tells him it's a bad thing. Ask him if he has any worries he'd like to discuss with you. Be open, supportive. Perhaps he'd feel more comfortable discussing the issue with a counsellor. Just let him know you're there for him whenever he wishes to talk. ...Read more

My 11 year old son has been masturbating a lot late my and, it seems that he told me his penis can't get erections anymore. Is there a way to cure this? He hasn't hit puberty yet.

My 11 year old son has been masturbating a lot late my and, it seems that he told me his penis can't get erections anymore. Is there a way to cure this? He hasn't hit puberty yet.

Masturbation: It is normal for boys around 11 or 12 to touch themselves or masturbate almost to orgasm. Actual ejaculation does not occur until one to two years after puberty at about the time pubic hair begins to grow at about the age of 13. I would not worry about this now. It is important not to make a big issue out of this or make him feel ashamed. ...Read more

My son is 11 years old and masturbating frequently. I thought he was watching regular porn but I found out it was gay porn. Can this alter his sexuality?

My son is 11 years old and masturbating frequently. I thought he was watching regular porn but I found out it was gay porn. Can this alter his sexuality?

No.: I wonder if you're asking if this could somehow change your son's sexual orientation - i.e., "make him gay." if so, then would watching sex scenes involving only men make other boys/men you know gay, as well? Would watching sex scenes involving opposite sex partners make boys/men you know straight? 20 years from now will you care more about who your son loves than whether he loves & is loved? ...Read more

My young daughter age 7 seen my son 13 masterbate in his room. How do I deal with both of them. This us so awkward. Thanks?

Don't get mad: Be open with both. Suggest that you tell daughter that her brother was "playing with himself and it's something that kids and adults do from time to time" and he should have done it in private. Tell your son that masturbation is normal for everyone, but should be done in private. ...Read more

Can I teach my son to masterbate and how to have sex?

Can I teach my son to masterbate and how to have sex?

NO!: Children learn to masturbate just fine all by themselves, usually before age 3. You can answer his questions about sex clearly and briefly when he asks, so that he feels comfortable bringing them to you rather than to his friends. But if you go further, he is likely to at least consider you uncool and at worst never discuss the subject with you again. ...Read more
