When I was in the sixth grade my friend and I voluntarily held each others penises in each others hands and sort of played with them. I also used to watch pornography at the age of 8. I have a very loving and caring family who I have not told but I am afraid that this will have physcological effects on me later in life. I am a sophomore in high school. What should I do?
You are very brave to be asking these questions. School counselors and Psychologists are trained to confidentially help you sort out your feelings. It is very possible that you were exploring and nothing more. But, to know for sure - please consult with a trained professional if you are concerned.
