I have to agree with SHAKES here.
When I was a 9 year old boykid, I thought 9 year old girlies were deliciously cute, even though they were simultaneously The Other Side and had to be defeated in the various intergender competitions common to the world of 9 year olds. At 9 years old, I didn’t want to do them, mind you, as my appetite didn’t have that kind of specifically focused intent, but there was lust. (And older girls and women were not the interesting ones, just the girls more or less my own age). Nor was I the only one: the trick of dropping a pencil or some such object and peeking up girls’ skirts from floor level which picking it up was well-known.
At 14, the girls my age looked incredible and it was hard not to stare and ogle. I probably still wasn’t ready to do them but I was up for some experimentation that might lead in that direction if given the opportunity. As for the 9 year olds, I had less interest in them than I had had back when I was 9 but the specifically female, sexualized cuteness of them was still there and still perceptible, it wasn’t like they got ugly as I aged out of that cohort. I was just into older women, like 13 and 14 and 15 year olds
Decades later, it’s as if I still have a 9 year old boy’s appreciation of the ways in which 9 year old girls are cute, and that of a 14 year old boy for 14 year old girls, not to mention a 22 year old guy’s responsiveness to 22 year old chicks and the lust for the wimmins of 40 that a 40 year old dude knows of.
• I wouldn’t want to do anything erogenous with the 9 year olds, just as I didn’t want that when I was 9 myself
• There are a lot of good reasons why I consider 14 year old girls off-limits but I could see how the flavor of the appetite itself could lead to some fooling around, and this would include most of your gymnasts. It may be politically incorrect in our current climate but yeah, they are cute and sexy (in a 14 year old sort of not very serious way); I was attracted to them when I was 14 and they didn’t lose all fascination for me as I got older and I don’t consider myself a potential child molestor or dirty old man or anything.
