Hello, I would like to ask if someone else here has started masturbating really early, like at 2 or 3 years old? I searched the threads here and found nothing. I did, I don't know when or how, I don't think I was abused, at least I never found any hint about this. Most psychologists and pediatricians nowadays say it is normal, for example this article: https://www.todaysparent.com/baby/baby-health/do-babies-masturbate/ My parents (who were very liberal/progressive, but not perverts) thought the same: instead of trying to make me stop, not of course with punishments but diverting my attention to other things, all they said to me was not to do it in front of other people. And I grew up to a life of masturbation addiction, 40 years doing this and I cannot stop. I don't hate them nor hold any grudge (both passed away), but I do think they didn't do the correct thing.
