Hi there, and thank you for contacting us here at Ask Alex.
You have said that you asked your friend who is 11 to touch your private parts and then when he did, you noticed your legs shook and there was a puddle on the floor and that you felt relieved when it happened.
It sounds like you and your bestie were curious about eachother’s bodies in a sexual way, it is very normal for you to want to explore these things. The most important thing when exploring sexually, is that all people involved are consenting to this. It is important to note that in the Sexual Offences Act 2017 it states that ‘A person who engages in a sexual act with a child who is under the age of 15 years shall be guilty of an offence’. It is important to ensure you are safe and protected from harm and doing this in a public place is also against the law.
If you feel like you would like some further support in relation to being safe while exploring sexually with another person you will find some more information here www.spunout.ie or we have some articles on our own website: www.childline.ie/bullying-abuse-safety-and-your-rights/, www.childline.ie/sexuality-and-relationships/.
You may find it helpful to talk to someone you trust about this to get a better understanding of what happened and how you are feeling. If you feel you are not ready to speak to someone in your life right now Childline is always here to listen.
