What is Puberty?
Definition: The Period in which adolescents reach sexual maturity and become capable of reproduction.
Boys will go through erections. An erection is when the penis fills up with blood and hardens. The penis will become bigger and stand out from the body. Erections can happen because of sexual stimulus, physical exercise, or no reason at all. erection can happen at any time multiple times a day. They can also lead to wet dreams.
Girls don't go through as much of a sexual physical change as boys do because their sex organs are not external to their bodies. they have have 2 main sex organ, the vagina and the clitoris. The clitoris is what helps give sexual pleasure can cause orgasm and the vagina is where a man inserts his penis during intercourse. The vagina also leads to the uterus where girl experience her period.
Who can give me their best pick-up line?
Normal pubertal development consists of many different physical changes to one's body. Everyone is different, so each person will experience these changes at different times. The physical signs usually start around the age of 11 or 12, and are considered over by 18 or 19.
Early Adolescence is 11 to 14.
Middle is 14 to 16
Late is 16 to 19
Females have a variety of changes they will experience.
Males tend to experience more changes than girls to.
Hair Growth
Occurs in the armpits, pubic triangle, and sometimes the inner thighs.
Breast Development
Starts around the age of 11 and continues throughout puberty. All girls breast development differs on the person.
Sweat and oil glands begin to develop fully and can result in clogged pores, causing acne. Washing the face daily can really help.
Girls will grow an average of 3.5 inches a year. Heads, hands and feet are the first things to grown, then arms and legs, finally the torso and shoulders will catch up.
Weight Gain
Gaining weight is a normal process of puberty. Without it, one cannot grow taller, develop breasts or get your first period.
The scrotum of the testicles will begin to get larger due to the growth of the testicles.
This occurs around the age of 10 to 13.
Around the age of 11 to 14 1/2, the penis will enlarge in length and has a small increase in width.
Hair Growth
The growth of pubic hair usually occurs between the ages of 10 to 15. This can vary.
The fist sign of pubic hair is around the base of the penis.
Hair growth will continue around the pubic triangle and will get coarser and darker.
Hair may continue to the thighs.
Males will also grow hair in the chest, armpits, and face.
Change in Voice
Due to the high production of testosterone, the Larynx gets bigger. As the Larynx grows, the vocal chords begin to get longer and thicker.
Cavities in the sinuses, the nose, and the back of the throat grow bigger, creating more space in the face that gives your voice more room to echo. All of these factors cause your voice to get deeper.
Adam's Apple
Along with all the other changes in your body, you might notice that your throat area looks a little different. For guys, when the larynx grows bigger, it tilts to a different angle inside the neck. Part of it sticks out in the part of the neck at the front of the throat and forms the Adam's apple. For girls, the larynx also grows bigger but not as much as a guy's. That's why girls don't have Adam's apples.
Just like females, males may experience acne due to the development of oil and sweat glands.
Washing your face daily can be extremely helpful.
Males will experience a growth spurt around the age of 10 to 16.
Males can grow an average of 4.1 inches a year.
The male growth spurt will last longer than the females.
Strength Spurt
By the end of puberty, adult men have heavier bones and nearly twice as much skeletal muscle.
Some of the bone growth is disproportionately greater, resulting in noticeably different male and female skeletal shapes.
This muscle develops mainly during the later stages of puberty, and muscle growth can continue even after boys are biologically adult.
The peak of the so-called "strength spurt", the rate of muscle growth, is attained about one year after a male experiences his peak growth rate.
Adult men are on average about 13 cm (5.2 inches) taller than women.
At 12 years old boys cry just as much as girls, but by age 18 women cry 4 times more than men due to their surge of estrogen.
During puberty testosterone production increases by 30 times in boys 13-14 years old.
On average, boys grow a foot during puberty.
Most girls reach their peak height growth 6 months before they get their first period.
During puberty a boy can produce enough sweat to fill a 6 pack of beer in just one hour of exercise.
During puberty boys produce 50% more muscle and 50% less fat than girls.
In just one ejaculation, a man could inseminate 300 million women, or all the women in America twice.
Dr. Shamban, a dermatologist has said, "Chocolate per se will not make you break out. In fact, there is little evidence that chocolate or any specific fatty foods will cause acne."
Adolescent elephants will sometimes throw themselves on the ground as a sign of extreme emotional distress. This is most commonly known as "throwing a tantrum." :)
Cognitive Development During Puberty
Wet Dreams
Boys will have erections in the middle of the night which is usually the result of a sexual dream. They will wake up with semen on their clothes and sheats. If a boy has a wet dream he should wash himself to avoid infections.
A girl can start her period between the age of 11-14. It is the cycle of releasing an egg. It happens on average every 28 day. The ovaries will release an egg and send it to the uterus to imbed it self in the lining. If the egg isn't fertile then the body will shed the uterus lining which causes the bleeding and usually last 4-7 days.
During puberty, we start to feel the need to satisfy sexual urges. This usually occurs when one has sexual stimuli such as dreams, thoughts and attraction. An orgasm is the height of sexual pleasure .
The Result of Sex...
Say the days of the week back­wards...
then in alpha­bet­i­cal order!
Just like when we were infants, puberty is a period of time that our brains are going through a huge growth spurt and activity.
HPA(Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Adrenal) axis

HPG(Hypothalamus-Pituitary-Gonads) axis

-estradiol (estragen)
-testosterone( best known of the androgens)

Puberty begins with an invisible event, a marked hormonal increase.
Limbic system(includes amygdala)
- where intense fear and excitement originate
Myelination and maturation occur in:
Inner brain
- to Cortex
- then back to front

A flurry of growth and thickening of gray matter followed by pruning.
Prefrontal cortex
-where planning, emotional regulation, and impulse control occur.
During Puberty you are likely to experience mood swings and more intense emotion.
You obtain the ability to think abstract and become egocentric.

Several aspects of ethnocentrism are personal fable, invincibility fable, and the imaginary audience.

The shift to abstract thinking is called formal operational thought.
