Touching boys

My friends'' son (15) told her that he touched other boys private parts (it happened a few times). Is this normal curiuosity l, should she be worried and does this means that he is gay?

Hi Susan,

he is at an age where sexual experimentation happens and this also sometimes happens with people of the same sex. It does not necessarily mean that he is gay but rather working out who he is. In time he will come to his own conlusion about his sexuality and the main thing here is acceptance by the adults around him about who he is.
