Okay, ever since i was a little girl, like 6, i have been masterbating. At the time i didnt know anything about what i was doing, and i dont even know how i started. Well now im older and can't quit, and its awkward to talk to my parents about this any advice?

Re: masterbating
My advice is to realize that it's perfectly normal and natural to masturbate. You're not doing anything that will hurt you.

That's the thing, you don't [I]have[/I] to quit. Not unless you're doing it all the time and it's interfering with your school, family or social life, etc.

Is it?

Probably not, so I wouldn't worry about it. This is just something people do because they have perfectly normal sexual urges. Well, they masturbate or have sex.

Oh, and there's no reason to talk to your parents about it - unless, as I said, it's interfering with your school/life/family etc.

Re: masterbating
well the thing is i want to tlk to my mom about it, because she is a nurse, but she will tell my dad and thats a little weird to me. and i dont know how she will take it, and what she will say about it. I mean i dont do it everyday and i doesnt effect my school work or anything, its just that to me it seems like a bad thing and something a young girl shouldnt do. But like i said i started when i was little and didnt know what i was doing and i guess it just stuck with me. I just want to be a normal kid, and not do bad stuff like that. :(

Re: masterbating
no need to talk to your parents about it.....
it's a perfectly natural thing to do.......don't worry!
enjoy yourself, you don't need to stop, it's actually healthy!
it can help you sleep, and it can relieve stress!
