Comments: He's not gay!

Oy, how torn you must be. As a parent the fact that he doesn't cover his tracks worth a crap is probably a good thing. However, it doesn't speak much for the boy's wisdom. Putting stuff back the way you found it after being nosy is pretty basic.
I agree at his age I wouldn't be too upset over the subject matter - if I remember right around that age my dad had a stash that he did a pretty poor job of hiding that I'd flip through once in a while as well. Heck, for that matter I wouldn't be too surprised if there were a couple of issues missing from the bag.

Yea, there probably are, which means they'll be found w/in the next two months the way he hides things.

I'm sure you'll find a creative way to let him know that you know.

Yeah, I'd not call my son on it. I'm sure he'd somehow find out I know... but I think I'd not call him on it. He'll look back on this and say when he has kids, "I remember when I took my old man's playboys..." Heh! Creating memories!

Look at it this way: Every moment he spends spankin' it is one he's NOT fucking something in the house up.

Ha! I was going to say what Grau said...well, not quite in those terms, but the general idea. In fact, I have to admit that never in my lifetime have I used the phrase "spanking it"....

But yeah, if he's gotta be messin' with somethin', that's better than a lot of things I can think of.

So, do I say "congratulations"? ;-)
