My 3 1/2 year old loves playing with his wee wee.  Don't all boys?  We give him limits, and tell him he can only play with it "in private" - like, when no one else is home, or in bed.  He will ask me, "Can I play with my wee wee?"  I can't relate, being a mom.  My husband thinks it's great that he "found it".  Good luck.

Its quite normal.  As the previous poster stated you need to place limits on where your son masterbates i.e. only in his room, in private.  Best wishes...
