Puberty Sex information - Teenage Boys




Boys' Private Puberty Stories #1

“Feel free to share my story with others if it will help them”

Every boy has his own story about his journey through puberty. It often helps to know others are experiencing the same feelings and hassles that you are all silently going through as teenagers.

Male, 13 years - USA (told by a church pastor)

image of typical boyI had known this boy most of his life. A good kid, a godly kid, from an excellent family. He seemed well adjusted and I knew he was an excellent student. He was in the 7th grade at the time, so he was probably 13. It's rare that young people like this make a formal counseling appointment (they usually just bring up things in the flow of conversation). He did just that, being very private and formal about the whole thing; he walked to the appointment after school, obviously unknown to his parents.

He no more than sat down when I realized the reason for the unusual appointment. He immediately began to cry - and I mean cry! For the next hour, anyway, he did not stop, until his T-shirt was literally wet from tears. I must admit, I wasn't only a bit overwhelmed by all this but it completely broke my heart. He "confessed" to masturbating and that his friend told him that Satan had now filled his heart and ruled his life, and he was damned to hell for all eternity. Some "friend!" Anyway, he was just terrorized by that, convinced God no longer loved him and he was no longer God's child.

In the two hours or so we had available to talk, it took most of that time just to get through the tears, so we really didn't get to talk too much about masturbation. We focused, instead, on God's love and that there's nothing we can do that will cause God to love us less. I did tell him it isn't a sin and doesn't make God mad. Knowing he had good parents and a good relationship with them, I encouraged him to talk to them about the subject. I don't know if he ever did.

I knew him for maybe 2 years after this, until they moved away. It never came up again and he seemed okay. The last thing he said to me was, "Thanks for helping me that day." I honestly don't know if he ever really got through that or not, we sometimes carry such things with us for the rest of our lives, but evidently our time together helped.

Many times I've encountered what is sometimes called "inappropriate guilt." Christians tend to think that all guilt comes from God! Some of it comes from ourselves and some of it comes from Satan. Sometimes Satan uses guilt and terror to drive us away from God and the church. It nearly happened to this nice boy.

If your website helps a kid like this, you're doing good!

No, but I am biblically a man.
What is the biggest hassle you have during puberty?
I would have to say that one my my biggest hassles is the urge to masturbate all the time, some times the urge to masturbate is so strong that even when you don't want to you end up doing it anyway, Another hassle is the courage to tell someone that you don't want to have sex with them because you know what the right thing to do is, but then on the other hand you want to have sex with them just to see how it feels and what it is like
Other comments? 
Don't worry about the things that other people say, the other kids at school make fun of you because you masturbate to get the attention off of themselves, the truth is they most likely do it to. and just because you look up gay porn and it turns you on it doesn't nessarly mean that you are gay so don't thing that way it is more that likely just a phase that you are going threw like everyone else, don't give in to your friends when it comes to doing something that you aren't ready for it is up to you to decide when to do those things not them and if you thing that you are ready to do it because everyone else is doing it or because it is cool then you better think again because it is not the right time(read the site you will get a lot of information that you might not know it will answer a lot of questions and cover a lot of ground)

Other comments? 
concerned cause so much fluid comes out when i cum i don't think its normal

Some guys delay masturbation for several days to let the semen build up so they can have a bigger ejaculation. More fluid (semen) seems to create bigger sensations - others will probably envy you if you always have a lot of semen! Look at these two responses below to the question "What would you like to change about your masturbation sessions?" - Editor
I would like to have more semen. Don't get me wrong I have plenty, but when you ejaculate it feels great so the more the merrier. age 15, Washington (3)
If I could change one thing, it would be the amount of semen I ejaculate and how far I shoot it. I want more and I want it to go farther. age 15, New York (3)

Pubic hair and lots of erections within 5 months after turning 13

Yeah, when I was thinking about something sexual and my mom came in the room....

Not exactly. I sometimes get semi-excited about comparing my development to other guys, but I've never been turned on by guys.

Have you had any official recognition of becoming a man (rite of passage)?
No not officially, however my 16th birthday was special because I could then legally work in Arkansas without a permit. So, I guess it was a marker of becoming a man, in the legal sense. It is the only birthday I have chosen to celebrate, because it made me a man in terms of working, which is important to me.

Yes, just a couple
Have you been embarrassed by having an erection at the wrong time?

Did you go through a stage where you thought you might be gay?
Yep, I had a sorta crush on this guy in my math class, he was really good looking and i even had a dream about him and me having sex together and i woke up with all of the semen in my bed. But, I know I am not gay and I have a girlfriend now. But i still get attracted to guys with shirts off but it is just because all guys do it and its just like you are comparing yourself to them and hope that you turn out like they do. You can still do stuff with guys and you can not be gay because I have even masturbated recently with a couple of my friends.

Yep! I used to everyday but now, once a week, because I have found that if you wait for semen to build up you have a stronger erection with twice as much semen and it feels so good after you are done

Male, 13 years - Canada

image of typical boyI started masturbating at I think about 11 or 12. One night I just felt horny, and I knew other people masturbated, so I decided to. When I was done I didn't quite feel guilty, I felt relieved actually. Throughout the time I have been masturbating, I have felt a bit more guilty, especially when family members have been close to catching me do it. I know it's good to express your feelings and everything, but personally I feel like keeping it to myself because nobody else really needs to know what I do.

At the beginning of this year, I felt kind of scared and alone and that was caused by masturbation. Through the course of the year I have noticed that basically all of  my male friends masturbate, and they don't make a big deal out of it. I think that if you feel insecure or scared, then don't talk to people about your insecurity, just let them talk to you. When I look at when I first started masturbating, and now I look at the present, I have progressed in all areas and I feel beneficially proud of myself.

Male, 17 years 9 months, White - New Zealand

image of typical boy
What was the first sign that puberty had begun in your life?
Aged about 11 I had my first growth of pubic hair. I was really shook up about it - I thought I was way too young, and I had really poor self esteem at the time!
Have you ever had wet dreams - if so, how often?
Nope, well maybe once I think - I cant really remember but I think I was jst masturbating while half-asleep.
Have you been embarrassed by having an erection at the wrong time?
I used to, mostly in year 9 (I was 13-14 years old then for non-NewZealanders) and I would spontaneously develop them at the end of English, and made some pretty embarrassing trips to the doorway holding my bag in front of me!.
Did you go through a stage where you thought you might be gay?
Yep, when I was in year 10 (age 14-15) I used to have this sort-of crush on a guy in my class. He was really good looking (and for some reason in the end-of-year-holidays when I was 14 I had a dream where he had sex with me - and I was a female.. I think that sparked the whole thing off!) Anyway we always joked around, especially about sex, and jokingly pretended to come on to each other. I ended up thinking I was gay for a while, but now I realize I am not. I have even masturbated together with another male friend since, and I know that I am straight. Guys - don't worry about it! You are NOT gay or straight when you are a teenager - whatever you think you are - you will change a lot before its all over!
Do you masturbate - if so, how often?
Yep! From twice a day to once a month - it varies heaps!
How old were you when you started to masturbate?
I have often thought back - I must have been about 12 (give or take a year).
Did you have trouble coming to terms with masturbation in your life?
Its hard to tell - at first it was jst fun, and then came the terrible guilt. Coming to terms with it- It took me a few years to shake off the guilt - even after finding sites that assured me its natural. I guess not being able to talk with my friends about it (taboo) really made things hard! Even when it was mentioned on a video in Health once, saying it was OK - it still took me ages to "come right" - because it is such a hard thing to talk about until you are about 16 years old or so!!.
Are you circumcised?
No I'm not.
Are you happy with being circumcised or uncircumcised?
Yes , I'm happy with it
When did your voice break?
From 13 to 16 it broke now and then. Always at embarrassing moments. But not too bad considering how other guys get it sometimes!
Has your puberty progressed fast, average or slow?
Average I guess! I dunno, its so complex. I guess I was neither really fast or really slow so lets just say average.
What is your penis size?
Down - about 10-12cm > Up - about 17-18cm (6 1/2 inches I think)
Other physical characteristics?
Lots (in my opinion) of body hair. Like my butt has decided to get quite hairy in the last year, and only in the last year have I grown to accept my chest hair (I used to dread it like I did my first pubic hair). I still use my shaver on my chest now and then though!
Are you a virgin?
Yes
Are you a Christian?
Yes. (No particular denomination - also my religious beliefs are quite wide-ranging)
Have you had any official recognition of becoming a man (rite of passage)?
My only rites of passage were a couple of years of being embarrassed with my body!
Other comments?
Guys - YOU ARE NORMAL! Learn to love yourself. And trust me on this: no matter how big the catastrophe, it will all be OK in the end. Just trust that its gonna be OK! Its likely to be amazing in fact! I have been through the mill, just like so many other people. You are OK! Accept yourself. I WISH I had found this site when I was 12 or 13!! I hope I can send this on to others in need. Good work guys! I am someone who has (more or less) safely emerged from puberty -  trust me!
