Oops! Sorry... What would you do?
We can stop stroking and hide the boner. But once an ejaculation begins to fire, we can't stop it. What would you do if you walked in on someone stroking away and in the midst of blasting their load?
Would you try to pretend you didn't see anything, even though you both know you did? Would you avoid talking about it?
This came in late Sunday night:
"After reading your week of Common Ground posts, I decided I had to write and ask about this. I'm a senior in college and came home from classes one afternoon and walked in to see my father jacking off. I saw his car in the driveway and it was unusual for him to be home in the middle of the afternoon so I called out Dad! as I rounded the corner into the living room. He was in mid-shoot and used both hands to cover up his dick. But of course jizz was still firing out onto his chest. He got up and ran to his bedroom cupping a hand over the end to catch the spurts.
I apologized when he came back out to pick up his clothes. He didn't say a word. It's been almost a month. He still won't acknowledge it and things are still strained between us. It's gone on so long even my mom has noticed there's a problem. She's asked me, but I said I didn't know. I feel like a total asshole, but at the same time I want to tell him I'm a grown man now and I wasn't shocked or traumatized by what I saw. I even got paper towels and cleaned up the trail of jizz he left on the floor as he ran. What do I do? What can I say to him to thaw things out?"
