“Help! My 2-Year-Old Daughter Won’t Stop Masturbating!”

unwanted-discovery-by-oohara-kyuutarou.jpg

In a rather unusual Q&A session, a mother explains she is having trouble getting her 2-year-old daughter to stop touching herself.

From the pages of Mainichi:

Q. My 2-year-old daughter won’t stop touching herself

She’s 2 years 11 months old. At night, when she goes to bed she keeps touching her genitals through her pajamas, saying “it feels good.” I’m troubled by this. I told her “It’ll start to hurt so stop it” but she won’t stop. How on earth can I make her stop?

A mother from Osaka

A. Perhaps she’s lonely, you should wait to see if she stops

Infant masturbation is not unusual. Children are aware of their genitals from the age of about 18 months. Naturally, they become curious about their bodies. I think she simply learnt that it felt good whilst exploring her body this way.

In a case like this it’s likely just chance – there’s no need to think “my child is a nymphomaniac…” It’s just a matter of skin contact, and there’s likely not much to worry about.

In the case of the child, she’s not touching herself directly so there appear to be no great hygiene concerns.

So, how to get her to stop? You might want to try and wait it out. If you emphasise the behaviour to her she might become attached to it.

Possibly she is lonely. You could try having her sleep with mother, or perhaps with a stuffed toy.

But if she gets older and starts doing it in front of people, you should explain to her about her genitals. Just tell her “You mustn’t touch your genitals in front of people.”

    Sleeping with a stuffed toy is a bad idea to stop masturbating...

    not sure about girls at young ages, but i remember reading about a young boy that kept Masterbating. The Boy messed his genitals up for life because the skin wasn't tough enough to handle it...

    she could just tell her a lie >_> like if you keep touching yourself you'll go blind. like telling your kid when the ice cream truck plays music it means their out of ice cream.

    That's all I could say after reading the article, at first. It's the first time I've heard about this, and being on the internet for god knows how long can show you lots of different, strange, and somewhat interesting things.
    ...and for those idiots making lewd comments, she is still 2 years and 11 months old....if you have to say anything wait 15 years and a month first...

    Why shouldn't she touch her genitals in front of other people? Besides some bullshit rules of what is socially acceptable, I fail to see how it hurts anyone in any way. She is innocent, and adults are trying to corrupt her natural, beautiful behavior.

    Normally, after a while you don't feel like masturbating any more. You get bored and there are better things to do.
    However, some people just can't stop themselves and they do get problems. Turns out the human skin in general doesn't like being touched permanently, it needs to be exposed to air and normal atmospheric pressure every once in a while, otherwise it develops rashes. And the skin of the genitals is relatively tender and prone to developing tiny lesions if not allowed to rest. If you're a man, you can also develop problems from your member being erect for too long; apparently the pressure and lack of proper oxygenation causes issues too.

    i dont see the problem the mother is having.
    if my daughter would touch herself while she was 3 years old let her, as long as she doesnt do it in public. if she does, then yes it would become a problem but for now...just let the child be.

    Omg what a sick yet normal thing.

    Hard to define if starting at 2 is better than 14...or something like that. Do you actually remember anything from back when you were 2? I guess it doesn't matter, it's going to fade away or eventually be normal in a few years anyway.

    I agree, you are a genius, children should be allowed to play with themselves all they want in front of cameras and strangers, her bitch mom should be ashamed for trying to deny the child its basic human freedoms.

    When I was a kid, I would grab the skin on my penis and pull it down because I thought the thing inside was funny. I used to play peekaboo with it. It would make me laugh. I'd pull the skin up... then down. Then up, down.

    I was a nasty child.

    FFS, seriously this is normal, simple as.
    My brother from the age of 2 onwards was playing with his willie in full public view and continued for years, he just grew out of it though.

    Jokes aside she should have the kid checked for a urinary track infection.
    It's common in toddlers and could explain the behavior.

    Careful. You don't wanna bring shame upon your children. Religion is notorious this way. Masturbation is dirty, and homosexuality is a sin. Science have arguments for and against each topic, but does not say it is right or wrong. I believe there are a few reasons why religion is this way.

    1. Religion is black and white and dogmatic. Dogmatic is simple explanations to complex questions. Gayness can't reproduce, so its a sin.

    2. Give your subjects something to feel shameful and bad about, and you get them to think about something else than the faults in your religion.

    3. To boost procreation. If you can't masturbate, you would want sex, and thus the religions members grow.

    Bringing shame upon a child is one of the worst things you can do to it. Tell the child it is not wrong, it is fine, it is just that other people easily get embarrassed by it and you should keep it to yourself until you are old enough to share it with someone.

    i vaguely remember touching myself as I was little, because my mom yelling at me to stop. Later I started masturbating before I actually knew WHAT I was doing/what it was called. Its natural, its no big fucking deal.

    I've masturbated since I was 4 or 5 (maybe before that, but I don't remember it). I did it several times a day. It was (and still is) so good, I had no reason to stop.

    One night, my mother slept with me in the big bed (I'm sure why, but my father was absent, maybe she felt lonely or something). Of course, this didn't prevent me to rub myself, I had not the slightest idea of shame, and mom told me to stop that. I thought I was too noisy or I was making the mattress shaking, so I keep going more gently to not awake her. Why would I have thought otherwise ?

    Many kids, male and female, masturbate at all age.

    Does your infantile mind not understand this is perfectly normal for a 2 year old?

    Some of the worsed things you can do is teach her its bad to touch herself, just teach them its not decent to do infront of other people.
