    I Remember Puberty

    Although most girls would have considered puberty to be a gross thing, I thought of it more as myself growing up and maturing. I had seen my older sister naked plenty of times and wasn't grossed out by her pubic hair at all. Puberty came when I was 8. I had breasts when I was 9...

    The Birds And The Bees

    I lay on my bed and waited to die – I was almost 12.   I knew ************ was wrong, it could make you go blind the priests told us. However, like all young boys I was a prolific ****** with perfect sight; priests were liars! So I carried on  – until...

    I recognized I was starting puberty at about 10

    years old when I noticed fuzzy hair in my private area and on my legs. Yet, I didn't start shaving my legs until I was nearly 12. At 11, my n^ppl#s began to puff out slightly and darken a bit. From 11 to 12 my pubic hair really started to grow with a light reddish brown color...
