I started puberty early at 11 and by the time I hit 18, wow what a change! My penis and testicles grew in size and length, not much body hair, but pubic area completely covered from leg to leg and the entire area very thick and bushy with the scrotum sac completely covered. By 18 I was completely and noticeably different from when I started.

My breast and nipples got bigger and nipples really stood out. Under my arms and legs and on my arms as well as my pubic area it got real hairy and long and bushy all the way to my anal area. I had heavy discharge in my underwear. I have light brown head hair, a little darker on my pubis.

I am concerned about my boys’ attitudes after puberty, towards being family-friendly.
