Our expert says:
It sounds as if your mother’s age wisdom is on her side. Are you feeling ashamed of the fact that you masturbate or it is just the humiliation of being “caught” or seen, by your mother, doing it?
What you can start is to keep on reminding yourself that your mother does not have a problem with it - that might assist you in facing her and also carrying on with day to day life – masturbation is normal at any age and should not be frowned upon or one should not feel ashamed about enjoying it. If you feel that you need professional guidance to just assist you in achieving some level of emotional calmness it could be a good route to pursue.
Time is also a wonderful healer!
