7year old son

my seven year old son do sexual acts, as if he wants to have sex. i usualy sleep with him when his dad works night shifts and in the morning he would rub his genitals on my knees thinking that i am still asleep. he does this almost every time i have slept with him, and i told him to go and pee, could it be that he wants to have sex or has he ever had sex with someone without me knowing?
please help, i am confused and don''t know how to handle this, the only thing i said so far was just " stopit and dont ever do that again or i will spank you"

Difficult as it may seem this is not an actual sexual act. Your son may have seen something on TV which has caused him to be curious about his body and his penis in particular.He should not sleep in your bed at his age as this will certainly cause problems as he gets older.

This is pretty normal sexual development in children of about 5 or 6 years old.

They do it because it feels good.

You need to explain to him that it is not appropriate and that you think he''s now too big to sleep in the bed with you. Tell him that that is something he must do in private.
