Masturbation is good for you. It's a healthy activity. It promotes overall good health. It reduces the number of prostate infections, thereby reducing the risk of prostate cancer."I've read your blog for a while now and I agree with all you have said. But the other day after a long dry spell of sex because my wife just hasn't been interested for some reason I had the opportunity to masturbate. And it was so good that I totally lost track of time and then eventually got so engrossed in the feeling that everything slipped from my mind. I guess that's what guys consider "gooned"? But the problem is that my sons came home from school and I didn't hear them come in. had no idea they were there until I recovered from the orgasm and found them sitting on the floor looking at me. I was totally covered in semen from my hair to my pubes, my cock was still hard and slick with cum, and my hand was still stroking really slow. I know I was sighing with relief and before I opened my eyes I remember saying, "God that felt good".
I want them to understand it's normal and I did my best to not freak out. But I sure stammered a lot in trying to explain what I'd just done and what they'd just seen. What do I tell them? They are close to hitting puberty but I'm really at a loss for words."
Wow. You've been presented with a perfect opportunity. Now, don't blow it. Kids aren't as dumb as we think. I'm assuming you've already had The Talk. They should know about erections and sperm and babies. Now, it's time to have a real talk - an open, honest, explicit one.
Take them to the park (or wherever you spend guy time) this weekend - without mom - and spell it out for them. Tell them they'll be enjoying it themselves soon (if they aren't already!). Moreover, give them permission. Encourage them to do it.
As I've suggested to other men who have asked, "Now what?": Get them some type of lube - baby oil seems to be the choice most fathers go for because it's less embarrassing to purchase, and it's cheaper. (Hey, with two sons in the house you're going to be going through a lot.) Give them old hand towels to use for clean-up, and inform them they should be rinsing them out before putting them into the hamper to be washed. Mom shouldn't have to deal with crusty laundry.
This is also the time you need to have a talk with your wife. No, not to complain about a lack of sex. To tell her that her sons have hit that age,
that she's not to make snide remarks that will embarrass them, that she's to wash and fold the towels and put them in the proper place for use just as she does with their clothes.
Any other words of advice for this stammering dad?
