Masturbation can involve a person exploring their own body, but can also happen between two people mutual masturbation.
It may indirectly send the message that you are aware of your son's behavior and that you are responding to it in a casual and relaxed manner.
The group, which can be found on social messaging platform Discord, has almost 1,000 members across the globe.
Providing your child with sex-positive messages about masturbation is important in normalising this behaviour and reducing feelings of anxiety, fear and shame about bodies and sexuality.
Most of them are in various states of undress or compromising positions.
