My best friends friend wanted to know something after i told her a story. She wanted to know what my name was on MSN messenger, I told her she didnt want to know, but se demanded she did. So I told her. It was Miss Jill. She didn't get it so I explained it. Then once she got it she started asking questions. The last one was Why do you do it? I said cause it feels good. She ended up blocking me from 2 of her screen names. I didn't mean to scare or upset her. SHe asked I told. Should I just try and accept that not all people are going to accept masturbation and things? Should I let it go or should I try and fix te relation ship. We were never really close friends, just friends. Please help.

Can I be honest?

I've noticed in your posting history here that you talk about sex and masturbation a LOT, sometimes almost obsessively.

It's pretty normal to go through periods of puberty where sexuality takes the front seat: no worries there. But some balance is a really good idea, especially with other people, whose boundaries often vary.

Sounds like your pal certainly overreacted, but I'd suggest that you maybe try and balance how much you focus on this, especially with other people. Sex is pretty private for most people, and that doesn't mean they're prudish or so forth, just that a lot of people don't really want to be confornted with platonic friends masturbatory habits so much. I'm a sex educator and author for my living, and even then, and even being an adult, very few platonic friends of mine talk to me about masturbation very often.

Yeah ok I obsess a bit but I just am having a really hard time coping. I don't understand some people. It just really makes me mad. I never dreamed of it like being so unknown.
