when did you notice (you were attracted to other men)?
this is a comment from this blog:
” i remember a few defining moments:
#1 - watching a movie (i think it was a rock hudson / doris day movie which is ironic) and near the end the two characters are in a close embrace and i realized that i didn’t want to be the strong man holding the woman in his arms - i wanted to be held in his arms - that i wanted to be comforted by him. i would have been 7 or 8 at the time.
#2 - in the summer i turned 13 one of the guys in our group “borrowed” his parents copy of “the joy of sex”. we all took turns looking at the illustrations and reading sections of the book - or at least i read portions. the pictures of the men and the entry on homosexuality hit me like a bolt of lightening. had my first wet orgasm after spending a few hours with that book.
#3 - while at university i was walking down a fairly busy main street when i saw a very hot looking guy walking toward me. i must have been staring as he smiled and then i heard someone say “hi there”. it was the woman he was walking with - who was a good friend from residence. i didn’t even notice he was walking with a woman let alone someone i knew.
#4 - my mother tells me she knew i was gay when i was 2 - - i refused to wear blue socks with brown pants!!”
