Hello, The age is not important but sexual development is. Puberty is absolutely required before sperm production starts, in form of muscle development, beard growth and enlarged erectile penis, testes. If there is precocious puberty, at age 8 a boy can have ejaculation if erection and sex act are possible. See link : http://www.open.edu/openlearn/body-mind/health/health-sciences/the-science-sperm
