How did puberty affect our childhoods, and how does it still impact us today? Physically, emotionally, relationally, and sexually?

Tom and Elliott welcome back Marshall for a time capsule conversation on puberty. We dive into the physical changes we experienced, our family dynamics, the comparisons we made to other boys, and ultimately this matter of “sexual awakening.” Can we trace our same-sex attractions back to this pivotal time of puberty?
