Comment from: Jason, 45-54 Male (Caregiver) Published: February 07

I was around 11 when I started puberty and stopped around 19. My penis and testicles grew in size and length, and I was getting very hairy as well in the entire region. My scrotum sac was completely covered with hair and being involved in sports it came with a price. Fellow students from middle to high made comments about my penis and testicles and being very hairy. My girlfriend at that time told me they were just jealous and they didn’t have anything growing compared to me. But it was very tough.
