"you should be concerned about why he was upset. Those words set off alarm bells as soon as I read them. I sent a text message to both sons telling them there would be a pow-wow Saturday morning as soon as chores were done. My oldest had already made plans with his friends and I made him cancel.
I admit it was tough getting started. I asked son #2 (I like those references) why he got so upset his first morning here when I woke him up for school. Was there a problem I should know about about. Just like a kid he got all red in the face and looked down at the floor. I asked if it was because I saw his erection. Son #1 piped up to tell me his brother knew "boner" and I could say boner if I wanted to.
It turns out his mother threw such a hissy-fit after catching Son #1. She actually told the youngest it was dirty and terrible and he should never touch himself and make it hard. When I woke him up he was afraid I'd be mad and accuse him of "playing down there." Oh, man was I pissed. I took a deep breath and I told him his mother was full of shit.
I have to thank you for dedicating the entire week to this issue. It went easier than I expected. But it took a lot longer than I expected because we talked about everything. Boners, whacking off, I mean everything. The oldest contributed a lot actually to answer his brother's questions. And did he ever have questions. He wanted to know everything about his dick from pre-cum to shooting the load.
The one thing we were able to skip was being naked. I've been naked around my sons for as long as I can remember. I don't know if they've ever seen me with a hard-on, maybe a semi getting out of the shower but they've never said anything. They're comfortable being nude, too. I gave the youngest very strict instructions to stop wearing shorts to sleep so we're all sleeping nude now, too.
Sorry this is a lot longer than I planned and I could go on with more, but suffice it to say that the three of us thank you for your understanding and encouragement. If there are any fathers out there following your blog they need to swallow hard, take a deep breath and just start talking. It's surprising how easy it is once the conversation gets rolling."
I'm very glad things went well. I hoped (knew) they would. Now your sons won't be afraid to come to you when they have questions, or if they have problems with the equipment.
