Getting aroused when touching youngsters

Q: Unwilling Arousal - I have a few affectionate youngers at my hostel. I love them solely for the cause of deen. But, when I touch them, I feel sexually aroused! By Allah! I never even dreamt of getting aroused when I touch them. They are old enough with beards and don't have any female features which cause attraction. I feel guilty please tell me what to do.

A: Don't touch them.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
