Post Is this normal?

I first masturbated when I was 18. i.e that was my first orgasm, I only had wet dreams up to then. And it was really voluntary masturbaion either, I didn't make a conscious descision to masturbate - my body just seem to get into the mode while I was in bed. It's only in recent years when I hear stories about boys masturbating at the age of 12 that I realise how late I was. Is this abnormal?

Why would it be abnormal? You don't HAVE to masturbate as a teen, adult or ever. People just do because it feels good.

There is no time frame for when you become sexually self explorative or curious. I have a friend of a mine who SUPPOSEDLY started masturbating at 21-22. I have another friend of mine who SUPPOSEDLY started at about 7-8. Textbooks say it starts around puberty (11-12 yrs old), but I think its all individual. I started at 13.

It's not abnormal at all. Its perfectly normal to never masturbate, if that's what you choose.

I will say that it is rare for males not to masturbate though. But rare does not mean abnormal.

I would estimate 98% of all males from their teens or older masturbate. I started at about age 11. Masturbation is much less common before puberty.

Some people masturbate before puberty, Some never at all and have wet dreams. But it's not abnormal, peoples' rate of physical exploration is different with each person

Every kid explores their body, but some kids only explore and then go do something else! I didn't masturbate myself to orgasm until I was 19. I had already been very sexually active at that point. I just never bothered to masturbate (and I have no idea why). Once I started I made it a daily ritual for a while. Making up for lost time, I suppose.

Thumbs up

There's NOTHING wrong with you. You're perfectly normal. Every other person takes a different time to explore their body and to try new things. I never had a wet dream before and that doesn't make me abnormal!! Enjoy!
