    @Question123 It probably is illegal, if you do it where someone could see you. People have been convicted of indecency for masturbating in their own home but visible from the street.

    And it would be against school rules, too.

    I wonder if the rubbing may have caused it in the first place. Perhaps more supportive underwear than boxers might help?

    @boy Start with a look at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Foreskin and particularly the picture of the foreskin pulled back in stages at https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/26/A_Foreskin_Retraction_Series.JPG

    Note that the foreskin tends to loosen in puberty. You start out life with it adhering (sticking) to the glans. Gradually it detaches from the glans, and then, in time, grows looser. Since you may be still fairly early in puberty, this natural process may still have a way to go. If you cannot retract at this time, it's not a cause for worry.

    Quite often the foreskin doesn't become loose enough naturally, and has to be helped. If, after puberty, it is not possible to expose the glans (the head) because the foreskin is too tight and won't expand enough to get the head out, this is called phimosis, and can usually be corrected by stretching exercises. There are descriptions and pictures of some exercises at https://www.wikihow.fitness/Do-Phimosis-Stretching

    Doing stretching exercises early, when the skin is most supple, is a good thing. However you should never force anything. You do not want to tear the skin or damage the skin in any way, as this causes scar tissue that is not stretchable. Be very gentle and very patient, but to be effective you have to do it regularly. Make it part of your daily routine; twice a day if possible.

    If your mum thinks you have it, the easiest way would be to talk to her about it and ask her to take you to the doctor. The doctor might refer you to a psychiatrist, as this is a specialist area.

    If necessary, you could go to your family doctor yourself, or even to another one. I think, if you live where I think you live, it shouldn't cost much, if anything. But it would be best to have your mum on side.

    Bipolar is treatable. Is your father on treatment, do you know?

    @jason.swallows Welcome to A2A, jason.swallows!

    I wonder how much difference there would be, from one neighbourhood to another?

    Welcome to A2A, trekker1. It's rare for a male to be multi-orgasmic like you are, but it does happen--but never to me. :)

    Welcome! Women's breasts get smaller if they lose weight (and larger if they gain weight). This may be the reason for your observation.

    However, if it's only over a few weeks it is probably just the apparent effect of a different bra. Some have an enhancing effect (especially, of course, padded bras, which are designed for this effect), and some have a suppressive effect (e.g. sports bras).

    It's unlikely that a woman with a C cup would feel the need for a reduction.

    Asking would be very rude, and probably considered sexual harassment, so don't think of it.

    Welcome to A2A, randomthings.

    That is indeed a tough situation. You need to pass a test to drive a car, but you don't have to demonstrate any skills at all to be allowed to bring up a child, and though most parents do the best they can, some ought never to have been allowed to do it.

    I imagine that your mother is also very unhappy. At some point she may leave him, but she has stuck with him so far and may do so for the rest of your life.

    We will give you all the support we can here. You know that it's him and not you; it is good that you know that. It will help you through the next few years, until you can escape.

    Welcome to A2A, Jason.

    Having sex desires and fantasies come to your mind frequently is the normal experience of nearly all males. It comes from having testosterone (male sex hormone) in your system. There are some guys who have either weaker desires or an unusually strong will who can suppress these always without masturbation, but they are very few. Yet so many pretend, or it just isn't talked about.

    Whether going at it with sex toys will help, I don't know. I'm doubtful. It might tire you out for a while, but I doubt any effect would last long.

    One thing that will reduce sex desire is old age, because then testosterone levels drop. But you want to be able to enjoy the rest of life before you get to that point; which means, I think, managing your desires rather than trying to suppress them.
