  • Yes, I think all boys - teen or otherwise - masturbate... It starts at about age 2, although they are just shootin' "blanks" til they start puberty.

  • Most likely, yeah. I've never heard of or known any teenage boy that claimed to never masturbate. My fiance said he started at like 11 or 12ish. I'm sure its different for everyone.

  • teen girls masturbate too. it's healthy to be comfortable with your body/sexuality

  • Nothing is universal, but 95-99% do lol. The only reason NOT to is if there is some religious stigma on it.

    I don't know what age most kids start, but my husband said he started at about 8 or 9. I was, like, 4 or 5 lol.

  • Boys and girls will play with their genitals from infancy onwards- baby boys get erections even in the womb! My son is eight, and although he is obviously pre-puberty, I know he plays with himself in the bathtub and things like that. Yes, I think that most (and probably all) teen boys will masturbate at least occasionally... I also think it's really normal and nothing to worry about. I've already had the 'private parts are private' talk with my kids- nothing wrong with touching their genitals, but no one else should be doing it and it should be done in private.
