Hi there, you are very welcome to Ask Alex.
Thank you for contacting us. We understand that it’s not always easy to share how we’re feeling, but we also know how important it is to talk about our worries.
You have said that you feel sexually aroused all the time, and you are wondering what you should do when you feel this way. What you are going through is completely normal and something that every young person experiences. During puberty, the body goes through a series of hormonal and physical changes which prepare us for adulthood and, particularly, sexual maturity. It sounds like you are in tune with the messages that your body is sending you. You can respond to this in a way that feels comfortable for you. Exploring our bodies is a normal part of our development but remember that you should always feel safe and secure.
As you continue to grow and notice the different changes in your body, you will have more questions. Do you have a trusted adult such as an older sibling, uncle, aunt, parents, or teacher that you would feel comfortable talking to about these changes and feelings? It may feel embarrassing talking about these types of things, but you do have the right to information and support.
Sometimes, it might feel a bit awkward talking to people you know about these topics, but Childline is always here to listen to you, and we would never judge anything you say. We have our online chat services at www.childline.ie, or our phone service on 1800 66 66 66. Childline services are free and confidential, and are available 24 hours, 7 days a week. We would be delighted to hear from you.
Thank you for reaching out to us.
