My ds (just turned 4) has been extremely curious about his body over the past year, especially wanting to touch his penis whenever he's naked. We have never tried to make it a negative thing, but have told him that touching yourself is something you do in private. We allow him to be naked quite a lot, but if he continues to touch himself in front of others, insist that he gets dressed. Up until recently, I've been okay with how it's been going, but now a couple close relatives have related that they've seen him do things such as trying to pinch his foreskin into a book or poke something into his foreskin or butt. Should I be alarmed? Is this natural exploration or is this crossing the line into something else?
