Ok, wtf is up with this?
I have NO privacy in my house.
There is allways someone here, someone walking by, or someone walking into my room.
I close the door, and its a national affair!
I just want some privacy!
Now, I dont just want privacy to masturbate(it would be nice) but...I just want some damn privacy, alone time.
No matter what, I cant be alone for more then 10 minutes before someone comes barging in.
Even now, I'm constantly stopping to hear if someone is walking down the hall.
Cause, idk what my parents would do if they caught me on a sex ed site talking about masturbation. (since they dont know I do it, or w/e) =/
Is it just me, or is it hard for everyone to find privacy? -.-

It's a pretty typical problem for a lot of young adults, I'm afraid.

But it's sometimes helped by just having a discussion with family about the need for privacy: sometimes, it's hard for parents and family to know what exactly you need, and to guage where you're at per personal development in terms of getting to the point where there is a strong need for privacy.

Have you tried to sit down and discuss your needs?
