Is it normal for a 9 year old boy to be horny (or at least act horny) and talk about sexual topics all the time?

I'm concerned about his constant sexual behaviour. I overhear him talking about wanting to touch peoples boobs, penis, etc. very often. I had to have a word at break with him about talking about masturbation to the younger children on Wednesday. I understand that children are curious but it's getting a bit much.

Superb Opinion

  • This is hard to tell from the limited info. This can be either normal or a sign of sexual abuse. I was raised nudist and very open minded masturbation started at birth for me. And it was openly seen and talked about. All that said this can also be a sign he has been sexually abused. Puberty and hormones start around 10 so does exploration. I would watch him and talk to him openly and hopefully open minded!

  • Make sure he's not gaining access to porn somehow. This is sure what it sounds like.
    And no, it's way not normal. AT ALL.
    Time for a sit down conversation - see if you can find out where he's being exposed to this. If he was 13 or 14 MAYBE, but 9? Uh, no.

  • This is concerning, he seems a bit too knowledgeable for that age, making it seem he may be being exposed to something at home, I'm assuming ur a teacher? Call in a cfs referral...

  • He's probably repeating what he's hearing or seeing at home. Talk to your manager for advce.

  • Abnormal, creepy a d very worrisome.

  • Not gonna lie that is a little early if you ask me...


    But who knows. Maybe he began puberty early

  • He doesn't know what he is doing mentally.

  • he's in puberty so yeah, it's normal to be curious.

  • Normal for him to experience arousal but talking about sexual topics all the time is not usually a normal thing most 9 year olds do

  • No... bring him to psycologist for evaluation.

  • No, that isn't normal but neither is our society these days.

    • I can't be allowing this kind of talk but I'm embarrassed to tell his parents

    • You probably should tell them.

  • Glad you are talking to him. Sounds like he needs to learn to masturbate t relieve some of the tension. Also should see a doctor as all this is a bit early for boys and hormones may be out of normal range.

  • He just wondering

  • Maybe i was horny at a young age

    • Abd still now☺

  • I used to play doctors and nurses with my childminders son who was 9 years old and her daughter who was 8 when I was 10 years old. They used to pretend to operate on me as I lay down. I used to wear shorts and I opened my legs up a lot so they could put a bandage round my leg. They used to do it really high up my leg and I got hard because I felt the girl feeling up my leg and she was so close to my underwear. I got really horny and she said she could see my willy poke up in my shorts and it felt so nice. But once I had a fight with the boy in front of her and he hit me in the balls very hard and I was crying on the floor. The girl saw it all and tried to feel up my shorts but I didn't let her. But I stayed over that night and in my dreams I got felt so much by a cute girl and she made me cum up. I suddenly awoke and the girl was behind the bed and felt up to my privates. I didn't know what ejaculations were but it felt so nice to be felt by a girl who was so worried after I got hit there. She challenged her older brother to a fight and I saw it all. He was beating her up badly. But I saw her hand go up between his legs and then she pulled it out and he fell on the floor in tears and couldn't get up for ages. I realised what she had done to him. But she whispered in my ear that she had 'squeezed him there' and she pointed to my privates. I used to remember it all when I started cumming up.

  • It’s odd because boys that age don’t get urges yet or even think about stuff like that
