It's not abnormal for the process of puberty to begin in a boy at the age of 9
- I can attest to the truth of this statement as this was the age when I first became "fully functional"
it's not shocking to me that he was interested in sex at that young age - it's sad to me... - there is so much sexualy charged things that young kids can see nowadays - and if they see it they are going to want to try to do it...
Same here only I think it was a couple months before my 9th birthday. The pity of it is that I was burdened with the sexual awareness to know or care at that age, but it WAS a huge deal for me when it happened!
