Is sexual exploration with a sibling normal?
I was speaking to my sister the other day about growing up and how we had explored each others body as curious kids and how we both agreed that it...
yes, very normal!

Yes it's very common. It was a good learning experience. And by you saying you had a discussion with your sister the other day, what you really meant was you were re-enacting your childhood experiences because it's wrong that equates to hot.

i guess its pretty normal! its just talking, getting to know your sister..it is a good way to learn about the opp. sex but as long as its within the limits. I mean keep it clean, no dirty talking or extreme talk.
perhaps she could also advise you about women in general.
If ur touching, that's not common at all! it it's just talking then that's okay.
it's normal for siblings to play "doctor" when they're little. the boy isn't getting a boner or anything, it's not sexual. it's just innocent exploration, "hey, why doesn't she have a penis?"
It happens. I'm not sure if that makes it normal, but I think it is pretty common. My brother and I played doctor at a pretty young age. So yeah, his was the first penis I saw or touched. We were too young for this to really be a sexual thing, but I do remember wondering why it got bigger.
no not at all I think its odd and gross.
well when I was young about 7 I think I also did that with my older brother,...well yess the exploring , touchng...and maybe making out and petting...and now I got this flashbacks ...and I'm very disgusted by myself...i feel anger when I look at my brother we never talk about this it like we never did this and I don't want to but ... is this really common and normal ? should I feel guillty ? please answer me I really need someone right now ...

You can both be happy to have been able to inform each other, to contribute to the other's advancement, to have been helped by the other.
It probably happens between a lot of siblings: kid's stuff.
No one is hurt by it, you both got a benefit from it: no problem at all thus.
Based on your comments on rdabby's question, your exploration included touching each other sexually. This is not appropriate, and is in fact illegal in many countries. It is a form of incest dude, and not cool.
Wish I had a ladeh to feel.
Say I'm wrong, but I actually think you're lucky in that way.
I want details. Lol.
Wow, my first reaction was a strong one. But after giving it some thought, if there is no sexual tendencies towards each other AT ALL, then that sounds all right to me. I know that some families (not many, some) walk around nude all the time and there's no sexual feelings about that, its just the way they are.
Yes. Common and normal, if you know the limits and boundaries.
This is very normal despite the fact that there are quacks that would label this as "sibling sexual abuse". Sibling sexual abuse is very rare and involves one sibling forcing another into sexual behavior against the other siblings will. Normal curiosity, exploration, and even petting is just part of growing up. I do believe, however, that parents who "catch" their children engaging in such behavior should take the opportunity to discuss with them the nuances (age appropriate) of their sexuality, bodies, and why this behavior is generally considered unkosher. For gods sake don't lead them to believe they have done anything wrong...but rather explain that if they have further curiosities regarding the opposite sex you will be receptive to their inquiries.
no. dude. I don't agree with it at all.
Yes, I think it's very common as well. My sister is a little younger than me and a few times in our early childhood (probably up to about when were in 2nd grade) we would play doctor, touching each other genitals and would stick a play thermometer in each other's butts (lol).
We knew it was wrong because we didn't want our parents to catch us. It was just some innocent curiosity, and looking back it probably helped us both to be more comfortable with our own sexuality and the opposite sex later on in life. We're both happily married to our spouses now and it's never affected me much more than to look back and laugh.
