This is my personal response to Greg's 'Growing Up Open' story posted 6/2 including a wonderful memory-driven orgasm it produced reading it, which surely will be followed by another beauty accompanying this reply.
I am in all other ways a normal straight married guy with two kids(girls)and I suppose am pretty normal sexually. Except that I solo masturbate often and avidly and that masturbation is solely male oriented. As by the way, is my devotion to Solo Touch, male solo and MM all the way. And my story of the beginnings of that are so similar to that of Greg's.
My mother died before I was two years old, I was the last of three male children, in ages spaced about two years apart. My father devoted himself to raising the three of us and our household smoothly developed into a male enclave, a sort of 'one for all, all for one' natural openness. My father refitted our modest house accordingly, upstairs two bedrooms became one large one for the brothers, and the bathroom was expanded into another, a four shower head room and twin toilet stalls. The first floor became one large kitchen-family room and my father's bedroom-study.
The atmosphere was totally open and natural, we lived in a southern semi-tropical lightly populated area where at home clothing was minimal at best and frequently abandoned entirely. I grew up surrounded by other male bodies in various stages of development and early-on that fascinated me and does to this day. My father was-is-a very basic guy believing that sex is all part of male development and masturbation is a natural, necessary male function at the outset and continuing into maturity.
In our family the first masturbation at puberty was a rite of passage into the male-family fraternity. The group shower was the family 'masturbatorium' in which I was initiated simply as a matter of course when the time came, the celebration being the joining in with me by my practised family, the sharing of 'first sperm' with that of my siblings and that which produced us. I suppose not your typical boyhood event but one I found totally awesome. There is more to this story but maybe it should await the reaction from others here. Greg may appreciate it but others? I hope so!
