The Power of Acceptance
I have touched myself since the age of 3. I had a grandmother who cared for me and insisted that I nap every day and to make myself sleep I always touched myself and she was never concerned. As I became older we spent much time together at a beach home that she owned. I have always masturbated in the privacy of my room but only a curtain separated my area from the rest of the house and when I was 8 and 9 years old I masturbated freely and usually every afternoon within view of my grandmother although in my own room. I knew that she was aware that I was pleasuring myself and her silent easy acceptance relaxed me and made me feel ok about pleasuring myself.
I would do it whenever I was napping or going to sleep, even on the occasions when I slept with her. I knew that she knew I was masturbating and even without us talking about it was OK. I could quietly masturbate and sometimes I knew that she masturbated too. If I was in her bed it was a still and silent orgasm but incredibly intense. --Anon.
