Is it common for girls to compare boobs and even let them feel them ? When my friends and I are at my one friends house who has a pool we get changed in her room. We are all in different stages of development and some of the girls who aren't as developed want to feel the others breasts to know how they feel. I don't know about this and wonder if others do it.

Curiosity about your own body and other people's bodies is natural, especially when those bodies are in the middle of changing. And various methods of "comparing" are pretty common.

But what matters is what makes you feel comfortable. If you don't feel comfortable letting another person touch your breasts -- or with touching another person's -- then you are well within your rights to say no, and no one should pressure you into that. But if you're curious too and generally okay with it, and just worry that it's "weird" or that there's something sexual about it -- which it doesn't sound from your description like there is, and there's nothing that makes touching breasts inherently sexual at all -- then you really shouldn't be. Again, do whatever feels right for you, and don't let anyone other than you decide what that is.

Ah. Well that's quite normal if you are all really close. It's normal for you all to be curious. But are you comfortable about it? If you feel like youre being pressured into it or feel that its wierd or sexual, and you are uncomfortable with this, then you shouldnt do it. [Smile]
