My best friend's 19 month old son is circumsicized (sp?) and my 22 month old son is intact. She was asking me if my son plays with his penis all the time because she was wondering if her son's behavior was normal? I asked her to elaborate and she said that he is constantly pulling his pants and diaper off and playing with himself and giving himself erections and saying "wee wee!! wee wee!!" over and over and even if she puts him in pants that are hard to get off he sticks his hands down his pants to play with himself. Personally, my son does not exhibit behavior of this kind. He sometimes will feel around there a bit during bath time or sort of tug on it for a second during a diaper change but he doesn't stick his hands down his pants with the sole purpose of feeling his penis and he doesn't take his diaper off in order to play with it, nor have I ever witnessed him give himself an erection. I told my friend that while I haven't witnessed my son exhibit those behaviors, I figured they are all curious and aware at different levels. However, sense my son has a foreskin I wonder if this decreases indirect stimulation like his diaper rubbing on him as he walks that maybe her son feels? I was just wondering what you know about how circumcision affects toddlers exploratory behaviors and what you think is probably normal.
