Is it normal for a boy to want sex before puberty?


Wiki User

Sometimes, boys and girls can feel sexual arousement before hitting the full effects of puberty, it normally means that they are on the edge of puberty.


Sometimes boys (and girls) have not got much understanding of sex before they reach puberty and as it has less meaning. In some cases it isn't something that they even think of. A boy can be curious about the differences between boys and girls or curious about the size of another boy's penis. For a prepubertal child to be slightly knowledgeable about sex one would suspect that they had already been introduced to the concept (or even the physical experience) by someone older, like a teacher in a sex education class.
