Well, I'm not sure what proportion you're blowing it into. I don't think this is any serious sign of depravity or anything sinister in the kids. Curiousity and exploration in sexual and anatomical matters is normal and commonplace. Of course it is possible that the boys' interests in this area might have been aroused by accidental exposure to sexually explicity materials or behaviour, and it is even possible that they might have been exposed to abuse from older people --- thouigh such abuse is almost always accompanied by clear training to keep this secret, so it's maybe less likely to have been imitated when they knew they could be observed --- that rather suggests they had a more innocent view of what they were doing.
One should hesitate to make firm assumptions about what "must or "cannot" have happened. The first step would be. without making it seem as though something catastrophic or wicked has happened ( which would probably lead to a child becoming evasive ) to have a quiet talk with your son about what you saw, asking what it was about, and where they got those ideas, or whether he has experienced anything similar before.
Be cautious about over-reacting, as children can be more damaged by the outrage and severe anxiety shown by parents than by the actual events.
Keep a discrete eye on the kids from here on, to see if this seems to be being repeated, which would be more of a cause for concern. And I'd consider taking him to a child psych only if he shows clear signs of disturbance, such as regression ( loss of developmental advances, such as resuming bed-wetting ) anxiety tied to particular places or people, nightmares, and so on.
