My Step Son is Masturbating Uncontrollably
We just found out my step son is masturbating uncontrollably. My husband has a 13yo son and I have a 13yo daughter. My daughter told me on X-mas day that my step son masturbates 4 to 5 times a day with his room door open or humps his pillow with his room door open. We talked about it, and found out he was watching porn on his tablet, which those sites have now been blocked. My husband and I were upset because he acted as though he didn’t know he was supposed to be embarrassed when my daughter walked in his room to tell him it was his turn to walk the dog because he was masturbating with the door open. He didn’t stop, he didn’t cover up, nor did he jump like he had been caught, he just kept at it ignoring her.
In the last 3 weeks he has taken it up a notch. Whenever my daughter leaves her room he goes into her room and get in her bed with his pillow, and humps his pillow in her bed. He was caught this morning coming out of her room while she was in the shower. He waited for her to go in the bathroom stay in there for a couple min then made his way to her room. The two of them also share a play station so when it’s her term to play, he uses that as his chance to go in her room with his pillow. She went to a football game with a friend, and he used that as a chance to go in her room. When we asked him how come he times it when she’s leaving the room or leaving the house to go in her room, his response was I just want to know what it feels like to be in a girl’s bed. This morning was I just want to know what it feels like to be in a girl’s bed one more time before I stopped.
We talked to his mom who said he could move back with her just so he won’t be tempted by my daughter’s room, but my reply to that was, I want him to learn to control his self not move out and call him fixed because he’s no longer around my daughter s room because if this is an issue it will manifest itself somewhere else in his life in a different way. My step son acts like he has no idea why he’s doing this, and then he lies. We just signed him up for therapy where he has his first session in a week, but I am at a loss for words. My daughter is okay, and doesn’t feel threatened, but said, maybe if I never leave my room he won’t go in there.
