Hi,
Thanks for query,
You have desire to masturbate since the age of 11 it self confirm that you have sexual arousal & your sexual hormones started its function.
Have you started growing pubic & axillary hair?If yes then you are on right tract.
Usually at the age of puberty a male started secretion of hormones that is responsible to develop secondary sex characters like pubic hair,axillary hair,husk voice ,hair in the face or chin.
The one character may develop earlier to other.
So nothing to worry for your facial hair.All other parameters suggest that your hormone production is OK.
Thanks.
