- Is it normal for a teenage girl to masturbate and not tell her parents even though she feels guilty not telling them because the teenage girl feels guilty for masturbating?
Now as to the question about feeling guilty about not telling your parents – masturbation is a private thing, so a lot of teens don’t really talk with their parents (or others!) about it. Some teens do have discussions about it with their parents. Some religions and other beliefs do not agree with masturbation, and because of that parents might not be open to discussing it, or teens might feel guilty that they do it. Every family has different types of communication and beliefs - I am not talking about those specific things here. My purpose is to make sure you get accurate MEDICAL information about masturbating. And remember, if you have questions about masturbation and you feel awkward going to your parents, you can always ask your doctor!
So, to sum up:
- Masturbation is normal.
- Most teens have masturbated at some point.
- You cannot harm your health by masturbating.
- Masturbation is a healthy way to handle sexual urges without exposing yourself to pregnancy or disease risks.
That's it! Real Talk about Masturbation. No guilt. No judgment. Just information.
