    Default When do little boys start to....

    ......masturbate?

    My 2 yr, 10 mo has recently been toilet trained. He's pretty curious about his penis now. I guess it's much more accessible.

    I'm wondering about whether this could lead to further...*cough cough* exploration, ie, masturbation.

    I think research has shown it starts in the womb!

    DS loves his pen!s and will often play with it in the bath, at nappy changes etc. I think it's just important to let them know it's ok to play with their pen!s, but it needs to be done in private (obviously age plays a large role in understanding this!)

    From about 6 months old, if my DS could reach it he'd grab it. Almost 2 now and any time he's nude he's got one hand on it. I think it starts pretty young!

    My ds was caught in an ultrasound touching his, we couldn't even see his gender at first because his hand was on the way lol, now at 18 months he reaches in his nappy!

    Yep, my boys have loved theirs forever! Developmentally it's normal and physiologically, for intact little boys, playing with their penises helps to loosen their foreskins so it's all good. I just remind mine that it's a home activity and not to be done when we have guests.

    I guess there's a difference between touching because it's 'there' and masturbating though. Do little boys touch their penis in order to feel that sexual kind of pleasure/physical sensation?

    Little girls touch themselves as well and I think both boys and girls do it because it feels nice.

    It's not a bad thing

    Yes, sorry, wasn't meaning to suggest that it's only boys. My girl is only 11mo at present while my boy is nearly 3, that's what made me wonder
