I know the situation was delicate.  Imagine Leadbeater trying to teach 
a child about masturbation, in a period with no sexual education in any 
sense. He probably had to show a bit the child how to do it. It's very
disgusting, I know, and I think his action was an error. But it'd had
been worst if he had showed it on himself!!!

I do hope that there are no Theosophical teachers out there TODAY 
showing a child "how to do it" ....
