Question: DId i start mastrubation to young

 repitaly - Tue Aug 09, 2005 8:21 pm

i started mastrubating when i was about 10 or 11 yrs old. I don't know how i found out but thats about what age i started to mastrubate. could that have messed with something and messed up some functions in my penis, and that might be why my penis is only about 4 inches long.

I don't see how that would affect your penis size. I believe that's about the age that most boys notice things down there so you're probably not so early at it as you think. Ask you doctor if it's a majr worry. :-)
