Sex Confession: My Mother-in-Law Caught Me in the Act

OMG 11

omg"Sex Confessions" is a series featuring your naughtiest bedroom secrets and fantasies. Some will sound familiar, others may give you ideas, some will turn you on, and some are dark and twisted. You might want to sit down for this.

The relationship a woman has with her mother-in-law is sometimes a very complicated one. And what can add to the sometimes awkwardness is if your mother-in-law catches you doing something you "shouldn't" be doing. Like masturbating. Not that masturbating is bad, but no one ever wants to be caught naked and touching themselves by your husband's mom. That's what happened to 30-something-year-old Molly*. She'll explain.

Two years ago when my husband Jack* and I had found out we were pregnant for the first time, we were so excited. We lived close to my parents, so it was easy to tell them in person, but Jack's parents lived in another state, and instead of sharing the news over the phone, we planned a visit. We don't get to see them very often, so we planned to stay a week and really enjoy our time with them. They also live on the beach, so that's an added bonus.

We told them on the first night over dinner and my mother- and father-in-law were so happy, naturally. This baby was going to be their first grandchild. Everything was sweet and perfect. The next day Jack's mom had her yoga class in the morning and Jack and his dad had planned to go golfing. So I was going to wait for his mom to get back and we were going to go shopping. When everyone was out, I was at their house by myself, and I took a nice, long shower and decided to sit on their back porch in just my towel to look out at the beach. It was a gorgeous day, and well, I got a little horny. My hormones were raging from being pregnant and so I decided to masturbate. No one could see me from the beach, so I was basically lying there on their chair, feet up, towel open, taking care of myself.

Just as I was about to climax, the worst happened. My mother-in-law appeared! There was no hiding what I was doing. She saw, her eyes widened, and she yelled, OH GOD SORRY! and ran back in the house.

My face got so hot from embarrassment. What the heck was I supposed to do now? Here I was, carrying this woman's first grandchild, and I'm diddling myself on her porch. This doesn't look good at all. I decided to tell her the truth.

I told her I was sorry and that I was so embarrassed, but my hormones were raging and that's why I was doing what I was doing. I kept repeating how embarrassed I was. She and I weren't close -- we lived far away from each other and there was never time to really get to know her. Instead of being weird about it, she smiled and said, "Don't worry about it. I've been there. I have three kids. And while this may seem strange to you, I masturbate, too."

And that was that! Still so embarrassing, but it brought my MIL and I closer in a very strange way. We did keep it our little secret. We ended up going shopping and the whole visit was great. I didn't even tell my husband because I felt he would be too embarrassed about the whole thing. But I'm so thankful she and I were able to handle the situation like we did.

Have you ever been caught in the act by your in-laws? Did it go as well as Molly's situation?

Mollie is the lucky daughter in law in the world! And it brought them closer together! I nearly makes me cry when two people of any gender can act like adults.

I think I was caught by my mother in-law via a video chat service. I covered myself as fast as I could. I have no idea if she remembers. I hope not. My mother in-law doesn't speak much english (they are of Asian descent) so.. That was indeed embarrasing

I never got a chance to even meet my in-laws at all. My hubby wasn't close to his parents as he left home cause of a bad home life and trauma from is birth parents. My hubby however is closer to my parents then his parents. I will never get to meet them and I have been married for 17 years and both passed on at an early age. My mother-in-law died of cancer 2 yrs ago and my father -in-law died 3-5 yrs ago from a stroke & aneurism. It may of been for the best cause from what my hubby told me I wouldn't have wanted to know them.

My wife and I were sharing a hotel room with my mother in law a few years back and I was feeling a bit frisky but the wife was not going to risk it with her mother in the same room so we all went to sleep.

I woke up in the early hours to find my wife had rolled over taking all the duvet with her leaving me completely naked and very erect, I glanced over to my mother in laws bed and it was empty, just then I heard the bathroom door open. I just froze and closed my eyes, pretending I was still asleep, I heard her walk back into the room and then I heard a loud gasp and then silence for what seemed like ages then, eventually, I heard her make her way back to her bed.

Once she was back in bed I rolled over with my back facing her and eventually went back to sleep, when I woke up again I was covered, neither my wife or mother in law mentioned anything about it.
