    I don't know about the ejaculating part, isn't that something that happens when puberty hits? But yes....playing with it, humping things, looking at it, comparing it....all normal....the only thing I do NOT allow is when my boys try to touch each others. I explain that they can touch their own but it is their private parts andnobody else is allowed to touch it....not even their brother.
