ok, i'm usually in my room and i keep my door shut, but whenver they want something sometimes they call me and i'm like hang on, or they'll just "barge" right in and sometimes i would be masturbating and almost get caught! how can i tell them to knock without sounding like i'm up to something or sounding rude?

does your door lock?

anyway, the sign is step one. if they violate the sign, you have every right to yell at them for not knocking.

Use Gumdrop Girl's sign idea. It is a blatent but respectful way to say "respect my privacy".

You can ask about the lock if you'd like, but ideally you shouldn't have to always lock your door to be private. Just tell your parents, or siblings, or whoever, that when you door is closed, that means you'd like some privacy, and ask them to knock first.
