At home, my husband and I have always been very open about sexuality. We told our kids that masturbation is a normal behaviour and they can do it freely as long as they keep it private. Last week, my daughter Alicia (not her real name), who is fourteen, proposed a walk around the house. She does so when she has something important to tell me.
We walked and she remained silenced for a while. Suddenly, she asked me my feelings about her friend Virginia (not her real name). I answered her that Virginia seems to be a kind girl, always smiling and good-looking. My daughter told me she is a lesbian. She explained that, a few days ago, during a sleepover, Virginia asked her if she already kissed a boy. Alicia answered she didn't and Virginia suggested to try kissing with her. My daughter agreed and they began kissing as she explained to me. Quickly, Virginia's kisses became very passionate and she asked my daughter if she already had sex. Alicia replied she is too young. Virginia then asked if she masturbates and my daughter answered positively. After all these kisses, both of them were very horny and they decided to masturbate together. Alicia didn't give me many details but told me they explored mutually their body and sex, exchanged many kisses and caresses and came several times.
The next day, Alicia remembered these moments and began to feel guilty, therefore she decided to talk to me. I told her that masturbating with her friend does not make her a lesbian (it seemed to be her main fear). I added that kissing another girl is not a shame, just something to try as an experiment. She smiled when I told her I did it myself many years before her and had a good time. I felt her complete relief after I said Virginia will always be welcome at home, even if she is a lesbian.
Virginia came home yesterday evening for another sleepover. I opened the door and called Alicia. Before my daughter came downstairs, Virginia told me 'Thank you' and gently kissed my cheek. Obviously, they already had a conversation. When Alicia arrived, they exchanged a quick french kiss and ran to my daughter's room. Before they locked the door, I wished them a good evening which made them laugh a lot. What I didn't tell them is that I masturbated a lot while thinking of them doing the same!
