In our society; our culture, masturbation is one of the few remaining subjects that is taboo as to discussing. The misconceptions, misinformation, personal nature, religious beliefs and horrible medical advice from the past are still with us and pretty well muck up the situation. Even relatively recent "medical" opinion blame (very poor research here in the recent past), masturbation for insanity, a plethora of medical problems and a sure sign of complete moral breakdown and indeed, insanity. Most of us know this misinformation is simply wrong, wrong, wrong, yet most of us are rather squeamish about it to one extent or another.
The first printed word I ever read dealing with this subject was found in my old Boy Scout Manual from the 1940s and early 1950s. This manual had about half a page addressing the fact that good Scouts did not pollute their bodies and minds with such matters and predicted dire consequences if they did so. I well remember a friend of mine, we were about 12 at the time, who came to school and while dressing out for football, it was noted that he had gigantic whelps on his back, buttock and upper legs. Some of these many stripes were actually still bleeding.Read more ›
The father also emphasizes that masturbation is a private part of our sexual lives, to be done alone or perhaps shared only with a loving partner. For those who are uncomfortable that their child will share this revelation with their peers or in inappropriate circumstances such as Show & Tell in elementary school, YoungMiller has the father repeatedly stress that though everyone does it, no one discusses it with others.The author does this without making a child feel guilty or ashamed. It is a private thing just like going to the bathroom; this brilliant analogy is something almost every child past potty training understands. This subject has, at long last, found an author unafraid to tackle it. I salute the author in his attempt to remove generations of unease and misinformation and hope both his books on this subject (yes, there is a corresponding book for girls) find a wide audience amongst parents struggling to help their children understand and cope with their changing bodies and urges.
