Why I Masturbate my Son
I am a single father of a twenty one year old son named Mustafa who suffers from severe cerebral palsy. I have since the birth of Mustafa been intricately involved in his care and upbringing. Although Mustafa is seriously debilitated by his condition and faces enormous challenges in his life I have through a daily ritual of dedication, love, care and with abundance of patience been able to provide an environment of happiness and comfort, equal to that of any normal child.
Recently, I have been inspired by the revelation of baby Ashley X whose parents decided to stunt her growth in order to make her more manageable to handle. The dedication of Ashley X’s parents allowed me to come on air on a national radio station, Radio 702, to disclose a more controversial aspect of my son’s care.
My closeness to my son as well as my philosophy of life (secular humanism) and together with a reasonable understanding of what constitutes a healthy human being has allowed me to provide not only the wellbeing of my son physically and emotionally but sexually as well. I came to realise a few years ago that my son underwent the stage of puberty like all normal children and had sexual desires similar to all normal boys of his age. It came naturally in the development and care of my son to MASTURBATE him in order to relieve his sexual desires.
Masturbation is well documented as medically proven for the well being, physically and emotionally of every human being. It is a natural development for all human beings to indulge in from the onset of puberty. Masturbation gives great pleasure and relieves sexual tension. After masturbating him my son would express his pleasure and relief as all normal teenagers do. I doubt that any human being does not engage in masturbation at some stage in his or her life but if any person takes a conscientious decision not to masturbate it indicates a psychological problem on the part of the person and not with the act of masturbation.
The reason for my disclosure was twofold:
1. To allow other parents of severely handicapped teenagers who may be in a similar position and predicament to the situation that I faced to be able to explore an additional option in fulfilling the sexual desires of these teenagers.
2. To expose how the medical and health care workers of physiotherapist and psychologist have ignored or treated the subject of sexual feelings of cerebral teenage children as some sort of taboo subject not to be discussed at all.
I would like to emphasise that I am not advocating that teenage girls be masturbated as I am not familiar with female physiology, nor am I advocating that health care workers start masturbating teenagers under their care. I understand that this is illegal and will open up a new avenue of abuse. However, I am advocating that the medical fraternity start debating and exploring how to address this sensitive issue.
Since my revelation of masturbating my son I have been shunned by almost all the media in country. The blog that I have been using locally and in the USA has been censored and blocked. The medical fraternity taking care of the development of child health and welfare refuses to see me and discuss the issue.
There is a deafening silence by both the media and citizens of my country in addressing a very important health issue of children like my son who not only has to face his internal physical difficulties but also the prejudices of society.”
I think that we can all agree that the cultural phenomena of misogyny exists. At worst, one could explain it by saying that “women are generally evil and some people understand that they deserve to be scorned”. I don’t have much background in the subject beyond personal anecdotal observations, but from these I would hypothesise that misogyny occurs largely as an inverse function of sexual vulnerability in men. The sexual drive is one of the more powerful attitude shaping drives that men have. Someone made reference in another thread to how difficult it is to rehabilitate a man with a mental disorder that has been enforced by orgasm. For this reason, heterosexual men are in a sense, ‘at the mercy’ of women. It is in a person’s interest to fear and attempt to regulate or control critical and unpredictable elements of their environment. The more women are viewed as foreign, the more unpredictable they appear, the more impetus there is to fear them and attempt to control them. Through a more inclusive view of gender (we’re all different people, but we’re all pretty similar too), don’t we limit the fear, hate, and desire for power that characterise misogyny?
Any alternate theories and/or appropriate empirical data would be welcome.
Split brain experiments by Prof Roger Perry have shown distinct differences of perception between the two hemispheres of the brain. Surgical separations of the cortex have shown that the left brain controls the motor reflexes of the right side of the body and is mentally attracted to analytical perceptions and evaluations of realty. The right brain controls the left side motor reflexes and is more attracted to intuitive perceptions of reality.
Broadly speaking we can say that the left brain deals with the physical or visible aspects of reality, while the right brain is concerned with the metaphysical or emotive aspects of reality. In practice one half of our psyche demands hard evidence in order to determine action and the other half tends to rely more on intuitive “hunches” and feelings to guide action..
Obviously we are all a mix of both halves of the psyche, but generally speaking, males are predominantly left brain/analytically oriented and attracted to mechanics. Females are more right brain/intuitively oriented and attracted to the arts.
This is not s to say that males cannot be more intuitive than they generally are or females become more analytically orientated. With conscious effort and plenty of practice both male and female can evoke the less actives side of their brain and end up more holistically balanced in their approach to life.
For instance, men who practice right brain drills and exercises have found to their surprise that they can evoke stronger nurturing feelings for their children and deeper insights into their wives psyches than previously. (Of course many men have discovered their female/artistic side naturally, without the need to take extra exercises)
Women are generally more conscious than men of the dual nature of the psyche, for they have endless opportunities in dealing with the practical aspects of everyday life, not including their schooling years, exercising their analytical half. But they too, with more practice can become more mechanically orientated and more balanced than they already are.
I personally have been practicing right brain drills and exercises for the past thirty years, and have developed a dual brain educational course for children. If there is any interest in this subject, I will be happy to describe some of the surprising results and explain some of the more effective exercises that can help in furthering dual brain development.
As right brain drills end up with subjective results with no two indiviuals expeiencing exatly the same reactions, I can only describe my own. There has been objection from this administration in giving personal takes on any subject. This objection needs to be clarified should there be interest in more information.
Look at somebody’s face. Their every feature, the whole of their look. And try to think what they are like as a person before talking to them.
Chances are, they will turn out to act the way that they look. Their personality seems to mimic their appearance in some way.
People seem to act the way they think they look in the mirror. We are self conscious beings, and I believe when we look in the mirror we have some sort of inbuilt mechanism that sets up a certain set of behavioral characteristics to go along with ones look.
If you have big eyes, with that sort of hope and sparkle in them, that will give you a certain set of behavioral characteristics.
Likewise, if you have a masculine jaw structure that will give you yet another set of behavioral characteristics. And so on.
I think this can only develop as we are growing up into adults. As I don’t believe you can have a nose job and then you’ll start acting differently. No no no, it must happen just after the age of becoming self aware and develop until puberty.
Take the next week to notice this around you. I think you’ll find that I have a good point…
And going back to my statement, you can look at somebody and sort of know what they are like as a person.
Let me know what you guys think – but please don’t reply if you have not yet tried to see the patterns.
A male friend of mine told a feminist friend of mine he was interested in taking a feminist course.His reason was: “Maybe like Freud, I want to understand women better?” The response he got was: “Men shouldn’t really try to understand women, they should just generally comply.”
Indeed, the “woman question” wasn’t just some passive interest, more than it was a crude invasion of women’s freedom. He wouldn’t have enjoyed facing the prospect of “the white person question” so why should we repeat the mistake? Maybe as a male he owe it to just shut the hell up?
Surely, this may not be the view of all feminists. Some people might say it’s absurd. I expect an argument that anyone preventing you from seeking knowledge is stifling progress.
Still, my position is that the response was wise indeed. What do you think?
I’ve heard the psychological theory that all emotions stem from six base emotions, being:
So, for example, despair would be a mix of Sadness and Fear. Jealousy might be a mix of Anger and Sadness.
However, I also read a conflicting minimalist view that there are but three base emotions:
So all emotions are lesser degrees of these. So anger would be a mix of terror and despair, and irritation an even milder mix.
In the first theory all emotions can be reduced to six base emotions. The six base emotions are stated in their mildest form, however in the second theory the three emotions are at their maximum amplification, and everything else is a milder version of these. The first theory strikes me as more plausible. Also, in both, there is only one positive emotion, (One and a half if you include positive surprises), this strikes me as odd considering the amount of postitive emotions one can experience.
It has been said that prostitution is the second oldest profession (Motherhood the oldest).
It has also been said that a very large proportion (Lies, damn lies and statistics and all that, so I shall omit the statistics quoted) of internet traffic/usage is porn related.
I wonder if society did not prohibit sex between sexually mature individuals (whatever age) (and frown upon exposure of the flesh in a manner that could cause arousal) by law or religious doctrine would people (admittedly mostly men) become so obsessed with the aesthetic side of sexual attraction for example?
I also wonder if prostitutes are switched off psychologically or living with some kind of denial when going about their business.
