The text reports that babies experience sexual pleasure and, apparently, may even masturbate to orgasm.

What do you suppose this signifies?

During one of the earliest stages or probably the earliest stage of our life, we are more primal than we are advanced when it comes to our train of thought. Early on, we rely much more on nature and we are more in touch with our raw emotion, we do what feels good and we don’t engage in acts that doesn’t. I am not saying that as we grow older, we no longer implement the theory of do-what-feels-good-and-ditch-what-doesn’t; in fact, we become better at it (think about all the schemes we think of to get off the hook caused by unpleasing events). Moving on, a baby certainly doesn’t know the social morality or rules that has been implemented and perfected throughout the golden years of human ethical evolution and they certainly don’t know the societies norms when it comes to sexuality. Babies are a glimpse of a past, a past unrestricted by human folkways and customs. Once upon a time, we are all impulse driven rather than knowledge based; Meaning we are born seeking immediate satisfaction and we die trying to attain satisfaction without crossing the bounds and acting in a socially accepted manner.


How should parents respond if their baby shows extreme annoyance if efforts are made to interrupt his or her masturbation or if self-stimulation is done many times during the day?


The topic states that: The text reports that babies experience sexual pleasure and, apparently, may even masturbate to orgasm.


Parents, let’s try to give the human baby the benefit of a doubt, simply because we are not even sure if they masturbate or they are just engaging in genital play (a common early childhood behavior of genital exploration distinct from autoerotic stimulation.) an act which, according to some psychologists, is a sign of healthy psychosexual development.

Actually, it is up to the parents, if their baby shows much dismay over the stoppage of the said pleasurable event, it’s positive effect for their child could be learning the lesson: “You don’t always get what you want” or “Life is not all fun and games.”

In the end, we should just understand that as a baby, we really don’t have to conform to social rules. This topic is much under the shade, there is no certainty that a baby actually masturbates and no one is certain to its benefits and effects. In the end we should just do what we think what is best. Parents who will stop their baby if they think they are masturbating thinking it will bring forth bad effects are right in a way because they just want the best for their child. Babies who allegedly masturbates seeking immediate gratification are right in a way because they don’t know that society has labeled the said act as a vice. After all, is there anyone who have read this piece remembers if they have masturbated as a baby? Now that’s a point to ponder.
