Dear Hope: Caught and Embarrassed
I think my mom caught me masturbating. I’m not completely sure, but she walked in and I quickly stopped. I was in the shower and I forgot to lock the door. She just said ooops sorry and shut the door. She has been acting normal so I’m not sure if she saw or not. Should I say something or just let it go? I’m kind of embarrassed.
Moms all over the world have accidentally walked in on their kids masturbating and it’s just as awkward for them. I would suggest just letting it go. You’re not even sure of what she saw. She might have just thought “ooops you’re in the bathroom, sorry”.
There are two types of parents in these situations, they either freak out or think it’s no big deal. If she did see you and is freaked out, she will talk to you. If she has been acting normal then she either didn’t see or doesn’t want to make a big deal about it. Continue acting normal with her. Next time, just remember to lock the bathroom door.
I’m sure Caught would like to hear if anyone else has gone through this. Has anyone else experienced this?
Thank you for being brave and sending in your question.
