I am 11 years old and I pre-cum a lot. Is that bad for me?


Pre-cum or pre-ejaculate comes when your body thinks you are preparing for sex. That usually means you are either playing with your genitals, looking at pornography, or spending a lot of time thinking about sex. Pornography isn’t good for anyone; it warps your thoughts about sex really should be like, making you think of women as objects instead of people. See A Look at Pornography for more details. Playing with your genitals is understandable when the feelings are so new, but it is easy to overdo such. And spending your time thinking about sex is not good for you either. “For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man” (Mark 7:21-23).
