Two twelve-year-old boys engage in sex play, playing with each other's penises in the woods. One boy unzips his shorts and pulls them down, together with his underwear, and tells his friend to "Grab it" and "Squeeze it," no doubt referring to his penis. His friend does as his is told, while the first boy moans softly in pleasure. This goes on for several seconds before the first boy unzips his friend's shorts and pulls them down together with the underwear, all while still being fondled. He then proceeds to fondle his friend's privates, the two boys now fondling each other simultaneously. The second boy immediately shrieks in pain, and explains to his friends that he wants "to be pulled until stuff comes out."
