Difficulty in learning adaptive social behaviours in an unstructured fashion, recognising subtle affective cues, communicating accurately and competently with others, taking the perspectives of other individuals and considering their own and others’ viewpoints may confound sexual development and contribute to inappropriate sexual behaviours
Realmuto and Ruble 1999
It is OK to have an erection or hard-on while at school. When this happens I will ask the teacher to be excused to go to the bathroom.
I will not talk to others about my erection. I know that this is a private thing and it is natural.
Erections happen to all boys at some time.
