It's really a great opportunity to participate in this Boot Camp 3, to learn and share ideas and views. I am looking forward to be in the '''Paradise of Life skills'''. I am working hard on the tutorials and expect to acquire the required skills as a preparation for the Boot Camp. The lag is due to the amount of office work especially when one has to be away for three weeks. There is need to clear all pending assignments. luckily everything is going smooth so far. But as these tutorials are exciting, I do find some time to learn and practice. My sandbox
The exercise is getting more exciting as we go along though I must admit that I am a bit slow in progressing. I will take more than 20 minutes to complete one Tutorial

Human sexuality and sexual health
Male Sex Organ
Like girls,boys also go through changes during puberty. This stage is marked with a growth spurt at about 10 to 16 years of age. The distinguishing characterestics are that they grow out of their clothes or shoes a lot faster than they used to. Boys should not worry as the hormones will balance out and their body will catch up.
The following are some of the changes that boys' body undergo during puberty:
Body size: Arms, legs, hands, and feet may grow faster than the rest of the body. Until the rest of your body catches up, one may feel a little clumsy.
Body shape: the body gets taller and the shoulders broader. The body gains a lot of weight. During this time, many boys experience swelling under their nipples. This may cause them to worry that they are growing breasts. If you experience this, don't worry. It is common among boys of this age and is a temporary condition. One may talk to a pediatrician if one is very worried and wants to feel relieved. During puberty, muscles also get bigger. There is a tendency for some boys to rush this part of the growth; some work work out with weights and equipment to build up muscles, before the body is ready for it. If you are interested in these activities, talk to your pediatrician about a safe time for you to begin weight training.
Voice: At this stage the voice gets deeper. This may start with voice cracking but as one grows, the cracking will stop and the voice will stay at the lower range.
Hair: Hair will appear under the arms, on the legs and face, and above the penis. Chest hair may appear during puberty or years after, although not all men have chest hair. Some men shave the hair on their faces. There is no medical reason to shave, it is simply a personal choice. If a boy decides to shave, he has to use shaving cream and a clean razor made for men. It is a good idea to use your own personal razor or electric shaver and not to share one with your family or friends.
Skin: The skin may get more oily and one may notice more sweat . This is because the glands are growing too. It is important to wash every day to keep your skin clean and to use a deodorant or antiperspirant to keep odor and wetness under control. Despite one's best efforts to keep the face clean, one may still get pimples. This is called acne and is normal during this time when the hormone levels are high. Almost all teenage boys get acne at one time or another. Whether your case is mild or severe, there are things you can do to keep it under control. For more information is needed on acne control , seek for medical advice.
Penis: A boy's penis and testes get larger at this stage of growth. This may lead to erections more often due to an increase in sex hormones. Erections occur when the penis gets stiff and hard - sometimes for no reason. This is normal. If you feel embarrassed, remember that most people will not even notice your erection unless you draw attention to it. Many boys become concerned about their penis size; a boy may compare his own penis size with that of his friends. It is important to remember that the size of a man's penis has nothing to do with his manliness or sexual functioning.
At the puberty stage, the body also begins to produce sperm. . This means that during an erection, you may also experience ejaculation. This occurs when semen (made up of sperm and other fluids) is released through the penis. This could happen while you are sleeping. You might wake up to find your sheets or pajamas are wet. This is called a nocturnal emission or "wet dream." This is normal and will stop as you get older.
