how young is too young to feel arousal?

Unread post by utgard »

okay so since I was about 8, I've been aroused by stuff, but I didn't know it then, I only recently realised that that feeling I'd had was arousal. But also I didn't start puberty until I was about 10. Plus it should be noted I was mainly aroused by stuff that's part of BDSM. So, is it normal to feel arousal from a young age? What's the normal starting age if there is one?

Hi utgard,

Yes, it's completely normal to feel arousal from a young age. There is no normal starting age per se for arousal and genital pleasure to occur.
