Mum would be proud!
It's Mother's day! It's one of the 365 days of the year when your Mum expects to be revered with god-like awe, but perhaps the only day when flowers absolutely need to be bestowed on her. It's surprising that flowers are enough really. Whoever would have thought that a humble bunch of overpriced flowers would be enough to say "thank you for nine months of discomfort culminating in me squeezing painfully through your vagina or revealing me to the world like that scene from the alien movie."
She's been a source of comfort, love, nourishment and financial support, but also wisdom. Over the years you might have listened to, selectively heeded or outright ignored that wisdom, but it's been there whether you wanted it or appreciated it. You might have fought her well intentioned guidance, smiled and ultimately ignored it, or adhered to the letter, but sooner or later you'll take stock as to how she did.
She guided you, or at least shared her opinion, as to what to eat, what to wear, how to think, and even who you should be friends with. Whether you like it or not, she's been a pivotal part or defining who you are, and possibly whether you now need counselling.
The more astute of you will be starting to wonder where this thread is going. No, we're not going to suggest you celebrate her special day by gifting your mother the vibrator or dildo of her dreams. You can of course, but that's not the purpose of this post.
Instead, Top Drawer Essentials would like you to remember what your Mum invariably told you: that you don't need a man, or woman, to be happy. She might not have been talking about sexual gratification, or perhaps she was and you didn't realise it, but her wisdom still applies. You most definitely don't need anyone else.
Masturbation is a powerful means of reconnecting with yourself. Mum might not have specifically mentioned it or openly advocated for it, but she knew ... Mums always know. She knew how a little 'me-time' could help calm an angry teen and also perhaps reduce the anxiety of finding a boyfriend or girlfriend. Particularly, as you got older Mum, also understood that masturbation might also help you separate love from lust when you're considering a partner. Mum also recognised that self-exploration time was (and still is) how you discover what lights your fire.
Knowing this now, it's funny to reminisce at how terrified you invariably were back in the day that Mum would catch you in the act... perhaps she did. Whether you got caught or not, she knew it was happening. Do you really think Mum would have been surprised, or cared? As she's always had your best interests at heart, don't you think she would have been happy that you were taking control of your needs and learning more about yourself? Of course she would.
I'm inclined to think mothers everywhere are possibly the biggest supporters of masturbation. Sure, perhaps if they were 100% committed to it you wouldn't have come into being, but the point is that Mums recognise the joys and benefits of masturbation both for themselves and others. So the next time you scratch that itch, just think how proud you must be making your Mum and enjoy.
