I grew up in a naturalist home. Naturalist is another word for nudist. We also were all vegan and didn't use many manmade chemical items and the whole nine. Everything we did was considered all natural. It was me, mom, dad my older brother and two sisters. We were always naked around the house and were taught that there was nothing wrong with that. The reason that this may interest the readers here on Solo Touch is that in our home as soon as we started to touch ourselves we were encouraged to explore our natural tendencies in the safety of the home. In other words, masturbate all you want to. I was very young when I started having an erection without it being just morning wood.
For the record, our parents never touched us sexually in any way. And we were not allowed to touch each other in any way sexual at all. The rule applied to parents and siblings alike.
It wasn't viewed as sexual when we masturbated. It really wasn't unusual at all for us to be sitting naked and masturbating as we talked together. In our eyes we weren't mutually masturbating; we were talking and happened to be masturbating at the time.
Not all of my friends were naturalists like us. I was introduced to magazines that featured naked women and...let's just say that masturbating took on a whole new meaning to me personally. I will admit that I liked masturbating with my mom and sisters around much more than before. I liked even more watching them play with themselves. For them it was natural. For me it became sexual over time. But again we never touched each other improperly. And I never told them how I felt so that they never felt uncomfortable.
Something else that was considered just 'natural' was sex between my parents. I was allowed to watch them. Of course I would watch them and masturbate myself. But I couldn't allow myself to look too excited when I watched them.
