  • I have a 4 yr old and 9 yr old and they both have played with themselves. My 9 yr old has done it a lot more recent with jumping when you walk in his room (started in the last yr). The doctor told me that the average age for a male to play with themselves is normally around 6 yrs old which isn't much of a shocker, to be honest. My 9 yr old plays with it but it's more of an innocent thing and he is far from trying to hide it, lol. I think it's just their way of figuring out their bodies and what it can do. Nothing to be worried about though. Good luck.

  • Considering I was masturbating at 3 or 4 and my son acts like he has never thought about it at 14, He is on his own track. LOL

  • I started at 5. Masturbation is normal, natural and feels good. I don't know when my son started but he was going full speed ahead by age 12
