I think you are putting way to much thought into this. They are just babies. Everything is fun & new to them. The younger one probably doesn't even notice anything. I totally agree with Mommatasha1003. Just be matter of fact about it. If you make it an issue then the behavior takes on a whole new meaning to the child. I wouldn't give them separate baths, they are going to see each other naked for a very long time. What's the big deal? They get a boner when they are tired too, not just stimulated.
