I've been married for three years now. I spend quite a bit of time with my six-year-old step-daughter Kelsey. The past few months have released some strange events. I've caught Kelsey masturbating on three occasions. The first time was during the night. She was in bed sleeping, or so I thought. Actually she was humping her Winnie the Pooh stuffed toy. I kinda ignored what I saw by thinking to myself 'It was dark. I was imagining things.' Another time I flat out busted her. She was preparing her bath water in the tub. She was sitting under the faucet with her legs open. A textbook bathroom masturbation technique that most of us women experience. She didn't notice me standing at the doorway. Her head was leaned back and her eyes were closed. She was enjoying herself very much.
I waited a minute or two before I interrupted her happy moment. I took a step forward, cleared my throat, and offered her a towel. The towel was my reason for entering the bathroom. Her face was slightly flushed. She had a slight tremble. I wondered if she actually got off or was she nervous by me walking in on her. I wanted to have a 'girl talk' with her then but I feel as if her mom or my husband should decide that. She's very young to be masturbating. I've done reading on the subject, which led me to Solo Touch as well as other expert sites.
I've realised that masturbation can happen at any age. I'm an advocate of masturbation. I do it. The final straw was a few days ago. She was in her room standing in front of her full length mirror with her shorts down to her knees and her finger busily working her clit. I didn't make my presence known but I'm sure she saw me in the background of the mirror. I told my husband about the tub incident. He thinks she was just cleaning herself. Kelsey only does these things when he's not home. Does she want me to catch her? I don't know what to do or say. Where did she learn this from? I perform my masturbation and view porn when nobody is home. She does visit her mom once a month but I don't want to point fingers. What should I do? Thanks
