Maybe it’s just me, and it very well might be just me, but…
Are girls growing up a lot faster today?
Seriously! I have seen a lot of naked females in my 23 years. And, to be honest, when I was five, I thought 12 year old girls were adults. (Isn’t that funny how we think that) But, when I was a 13 year old nudist going to nude beaches with my mother and sisters I didn’t remember girls being so “grown up”. There are always exceptions. Ive always had tiny breasts and my older sister (and later my younger sister) grew watermelon sized breasts quite fast. But, as a whole it seemed to me that when I was between the ages of 12 and 15 all the girls around that age had rather small undeveloped breasts. More like puffy nipples than actual breasts. Then somewhere around 16 they started taking shape and becoming the form of breasts they would own for the rest of their younger life. (Sadly, as we all know, women only have a few years of fun and perky before things start moving South.) Maybe this wasn’t your experience, but that is what I seem to remember from my youth. You could easily determine a girls age by their relative body shape.
However, sometime not too long ago things seemed to change. Teenage girls began growing up so quickly. It happened so fast, I felt like I had fallen asleep for a decade and woken up to witness the events of today. There is a pretty good teenage population at the beaches I frequent, and I feel I have been provided with a pretty good cross-section of young females.
When I was 19 I was attempting to form a nudist social club for youth 18-22. Basically college aged. My intentions were to meet at the beach or at my house, hang out naked, and talk about issues. I started walking the beaches asking questions and inviting people who fit the right age group. This is when my lesson began.
I had already talked to some guys and gave them the information. Then I saw this girl. She had to be older than me. Quite tall with long legs and round developed breasts that sagged a little. I began talking to her, got her name, and all that small talk then I invited her to my group. “Oh, I’m in High School… I’m turning 15 next month.” *Jaw Dropped*
This trend continued. Girls with developed womanly bodies, only 14, 15, 16. All of them I guessed were at least 20. What happened? I saw a 13 year old girl with tits the same size as my 21 year old sister! Was she born with a “B” cup? Not only did this shock me, but made me feel quite the runt!
What happened? When did girls start growing up so fast? And what caused it?
I have heard more hormones in milk and meat that cause them to mature faster. But, could it be society as well? The things that 13 year old girls did 50 years ago seem to be quite different from what they do now. They are expected to grow up and become sexually active. Have their bodies somehow figured this out and decided to catch up?
I’m ranting, and didn’t really have a solid idea of what I was going to say.. But, seriously, why? What? Who? Where? When?
Does womanhood now start at 14?
