Other comments or advice to other guys?
If you're a guy that's hairy (or hairier) like me, and people comment on it with negative comments, ignore them. Those people are still immature, that's why that insult you about something like being hairy. I mean, come on! All men are suppose to have body hair. We were made that way, and no one's gonna change that! If you have a girlfriend that wants you to get rid of your body hair, you shouldn't even be her boyfriend. If she won't appreciate you for who you are, then what will she appreciate?! So be mature and don't let anyone change you from who you want to be. You're the one in control of your body! But if you're the one who doesn't appreciate your body for the way it is, then you better start appreciating it! Don't go off and wax / shave / pluck / get lazer treatments to get rid of your body hair. Be proud of who you are. You're unique. Don't change that! There are many hairy men out there, and they're proud of it. Plus, all of this that I have just said does not just apply to body hair, it can apply to anything about you! The main point is, be yourself, and be proud of it!

Male, 16 years, Asian - Philippines

What was the first sign that puberty had begun in your life?
Armpit hair and that peculiar itching in the pubic area
Have you ever had wet dreams - if so, how often?
yup, once a month ever since i quit masturbating
Have you been embarrassed by having an erection at the wrong time?
yup, but fortunately everyone seems oblivious to it.
Did you go through a stage where you thought you might be gay?
yup, i happened to be at that stage during my first year in high school (age 13). I don't know but it seems to sometimes come back. I get a sudden unusual feeling when I talk to my male friends, and I hate it. I know deep inside I am a man, for this I turn to God for help. He's more that enough to help. Thanks for your website, I found out that what I have been feeling is normal. And your site helped me affirm that God created me a man and I must live as one.
Do you masturbate - if so, how often?
used to be every week but i try my best to quit
How old were you when you started to masturbate?
11, when i just was fooling around at the bathroom and played with my thing like a spring and a joystick, i felt it was good and when I did it, i was scared a bit when I saw some liquid trickling from the thing's tip.
Did you have trouble coming to terms with masturbation in your life?
yes, because I am very much a devout Catholic and it seemed like it was not a thing a Christian would do. And I have read it many times before in the Catechism that Catholics are not supposed to do it because it's a misuse of God's gift of sexuality. The guilt I feel whenever I do it is so strong it drives me nuts. That's why I am trying my best to quit.

14, actually my voice still breaks periodically

very much a virgin
Do you regret being or not being a virgin?
Being a virgin? No regrets at all!
Are you a Christian?
yup, Roman Catholic Christian
Have you had any official recognition of becoming a man (rite of passage)?
In our country, circumcision is a rite of passage, and if you're not circumcised here in the Philippines you're laughed at. Being a Filipino, I have undergone this when I was 9.
What is the biggest hassle you have during puberty?
It's that feeling gay stage. Otherwise, there's none.
Other comments or advice to other guys?
Hey! to all guys who find difficulty in facing the changes of puberty, relax! Pray to God instead to help you in surviving this stage. After all, He is the one who is bringing this about in all of us boys.

Other comments or advice to other guys?
For uncircumcised guys, you aren't alone in America. There are a lot more around you than you think that are uncircumcised. We may be a minority in America right now, but we are a majority worldwide. And the circumcision rate in America is dropping quite rapidly. I am glad to have my foreskin and you should be too. It is natural, the way God wanted you to be (if he didn't want you to have a foreskin you wouldn't have it when you were born). It is more comfortable, more pleasurable, and better to please the ladies with. :)

Male, 15 years 10 months, White - USA

I have been masturbating since I was 10 or 11. I discovered it by accident. Three years into my habit, I asked a friend and also a youth leader if it was sinful. They both said it was a sin and cited several obscure Bible references.

I sought freedom from the habit for two years after that and found none. (My abstinence record is one week!) I couldn't resist. My spirit was willing, but my flesh was weak. I fell deeper into my habit, every time feeling guilty. My relationship with God was in the gutter from all the guilt.

I was searching on the web for some masturbation information to arouse me again, when I found your site (Boys Under Attack!). I went inside and realized the logic of masturbation not being a sin. Everyone does it and it in no way harms you. A loving God wouldn't give a fire to an immature boy like me and then curse me for not being able to quench it. Satan was using the guilt to ruin my life and my relationship with God and his tactic was working!

I went to the "Masturbation" page and then to the page about "Reaching Teenage Boys" (I have very few adult male friends and the few I have don't try to reach me). It was then that I realized what was making me feel so bad and so unloved. I wasn't trusting God for his love and acceptance and my relationship with Him was gone. I read the page "God for Teenage Boys" and I asked God to forgive me and I asked Him to live in my spirit and be my friend. I knelt there in front of my computer and asked God to shower His love on me. He did! I felt my emotional tanks fill to the brim. I went to sleep that night with His love overflowing my heart. He loved me through my struggle and as I slept, it felt like He was there next to me, holding me close and loving on me. I woke up the next morning feeling like a million bucks! I went on with my day and here I am writing to you.

Please, tell others my story, even those you work with as a youth leader. Hopefully, it will be an encouragement to them.

What was the first sign that puberty had begun in your life?
Pubic hair at 10 maybe?
Have you ever had wet dreams - if so, how often?
No wet dreams, probably because I masturbate every day since before I started ejaculating.
Have you been embarrassed by having an erection at the wrong time?
Not really, I never had that trauma, but once I was one of the oldest kids at a day camp at a YMCA because my mom works during the day so I went to a camp that went swimming every day. After a while I swallowed my pride and just decided to change into my swim trunks in front of the others. My genitals had already enlarged and I had pubic hair, so since I was around a bunch of kids they started making fun of me.
Did you go through a stage where you thought you might be gay?
No, I knew better than that. I knew from reading your site how Satan tricks kids into thinking they are gay. However I just got a new youth pastor and he also believes masturbation is a sin and he really doesn't give me hugs or anything like I used to get from my previous youth pastor. I don't know, I guess I feel that need for the love of other adult males like you described in one of your articles.
Do you masturbate - if so, how often?
Yeah, all the time. I do it usually at night before I go to bed, but sometimes I can get away with it after I come home from school.
How old were you when you started to masturbate?
11, during the year 2000. I had just gotten a book about aliens and alien abductions in the library (yes this was a strange way to discover it) and I kinda liked the idea of pretending I had been abducted and that they were doing experiments on me. I started rubbing my thighs and my thumbs were "there" and all of a sudden, I orgasmed and I totally lost control of my body and it felt so good that I tried to replicate it the next night and eventually I was hooked.
Did you have trouble coming to terms with masturbation in your life?
Yeah, for a long time and I still am having trouble coming to terms with it.
When did your voice break?
That I am not sure of because it happened very passively, my voice never cracked. (maybe because I sang all the time) and I just woke up one morning and noticed that my voice was really deep. I think it was when I was 13.
Has your puberty progressed fast, average or slow?
I think I am a early bird and it went kinda fast but I guess I'm still developing (I could easily pass for a 17 - 18 year old).
What is your penis size?
Flaccid: length: 4 inches (10cm); shaft skin length: 3 inches (7.5cm); width: 1 and 3/16ths inch (3.1cm); circumference: 4 inches (10cm)
Erect: length: 5 inches (12.5cm); shaft skin length: 3 and 1/2 inches (8.7cm); width: 1 and 1/2 inches (3.7cm); circumference: 4 and 1/2 inches (11.2cm).
Other physical characteristics?
I should shave every day - I am trying to grow a goatee. My pubic hair is 4 and a half inches long. but it's not crowded and also it's curly. It extends four inches diagonal and 5 inches up a "happy trail" up to my belly button. I think I have a lot of leg hair and I am starting to get chest hair (oddly enough it starts around my nipples, and I am adddhdddadddh (ADHD)
Are you a virgin?
Yes I am a virgin till the night after the day I say "I do"
Do you regret being/not being a virgin?
No, but sometimes I wonder what it would be like to have sex.
Are you circumcised?
Yeah, but I discovered something online called foreskin restoration so I hope to change that.
Are you happy with being circumcised or uncircumcised?
NO!!!! I would give anything to have my foreskin in it's entirety back so that I could experience sex as God intended it when he created us. also, I have lost sensitivity in my glans and am missing some of the most pleasurable parts of my penis because my parents were given a malinformed choice to give me what is rightfully mine for the time being to use... my entire body, foreskin included.
Are you a Christian?
Definately and I am gonna be one all my life and beyond, God has even told me my purpose in life is to be a youth pastor.
Have you had any official recognition of becoming a man (rite of passage)?
No, but I am biblically a man.
What is the biggest hassle you have during puberty?
Knowing that I like this one girl but she lives far away (she goes to my church which is also far away) and not being able to date her without taking a risk. And also being "lonely". Sometimes I feel like I'm wired differently. I don't have a natural predisposition to visual temptation and such, but you just describe something and I react adversely. Describe pain and I writhe in agony, describe a sexual experience and I get horny. Odd that visual stimuli doesn't have the same effect. I don't know, it is also a pain seeming so perfect moral-wise to all my friends when really I think I am totally messed up - like there is something wrong with me. Being the "loner" is kinda hard, at least I have some friends though. Oh well, they don't know the pain and they'd make fun of me if they did. Trying to keep up to that image is hard, wow, this is a time of turmoil, I feel like a prisoner sometimes.
Other comments? 
I do like to masturbate but my "girlfriend" for lack of better term found out and she doesn't like that I do it and she thinks it's a sin too. So needless to say I'm stuck. She is incredible. She is just the coolest person I ever met and she truely loves me. (if your girlfriend finds out you masturbate and believes it's a sin but still loves you, that's real love).
Studies have shown that there is no difference in sensitivity and sexual response between circumcised and uncircumcised penises (41) Editor

Other comments or advice to other guys?
Yes, for the USA, if you are uncut don't get cut out of the pressure of society. Your were born that way and why would you fix something that is not broken. Also if you are thinking about having sex make sure it is with someone who you get on well with and have a good trusting relationship together. This is what happened with my ex-girlfriend and i and it was a really positive thing. A lot of my friends guys and girls have regretted having sex with the wrong person. It is a great thing but it is worth waiting for the right person.

Everyone knows or can imagine that sex with someone you love feels great. This guy had great sex without any commitment. He will most likely find that his future sex relationships diminish in quality because he has tied himself spiritually to more than one person. It would be interesting to hear his story in 10 years time! Editor

Note - penis sizes

Don't take too much notice on the penis size that guys quote in these stories. There are many different ways to measure the penis and it is well known that a lot of guys submit the size they would like their penis to be! Editor
