User avatar Hi andyg667,
People vary with stages of development. Generally speaking ejaculation can occur anytime between the ages of 8 - 21 and this is considered quite normal. Your inability to ejaculate may not only be age related but also related to anxiety. Relax,don't put so much pressure on yourself.

User avatar Hi andyg667,
Yes, it is normal. That will also develop with a little time, and a little less anxiety.
