Which boy?

The rather sweet and pretty rising 13 year old who lives aboard a boat on a mooring in the middle of our harbour with his mother, father, and kid brother and sister.

Geron Kees did, too, when he mentioned nuclear shelters.

You are a young teenager, and are compelled to live inside a small environemt, with your parents, brothers and sisters. Puberty has just kicked in. The relentless masturbation of youth wants to take you over, but there is no privacy at all. If yoiu are on a boat it will rock, in a caravan it will vibrate, on a bunk in a nuclear shelter it will rock the other bunk buddy.

To me this is awful, because even a trip to the loo is in the same environment. There is no privacy, none. 

How do you cope?

The house-boat must be a decent size if it's accommodating five people, so making it 'rock', sounds a bit laughable in that context. 

If the parents, especially his father, are anything decent, and care about him, surely they'll make some provision for his privacy, now he's growing and 'rising'. Then what about his school friends - where do they do it? 

There was the some blurb, a while back, of a boy even resorting to wanking inside a wheelie-bin. But yes seriously, it is a heartfelt issue.

It's not a houseboat. It's a 45 foot yacht or thereabouts, and, while roomy inside, almost zero provacy. They rock, trust me!

His school friends have rooms!

Oh okay, but I don't quite get your angle with their situation. Are you perhaps their friend, and you are concerned for the boy's situation? Can you tell us more?

There is no more. It's role play. Put yourself into his situation. What now?
