First of all, like so many other people I want to offer my thanks for the site. Not only has reading a good letter helped me many a times to 'get over the edge', but it has also confirmed what I have always known anyway - that any 'rules' about who should and shouldn't 'do it' are only for the unadventurous. This is an account of my first experience.
I was a relatively protected only child, and very naive about matters sexual in my early teens. I had a best friend, Steve. He lived down the road, and we were at school together.
Anyway, Steve clearly knew more than me, and I guess he decided for whatever reason (and I'll always be thankful he did!) that he had a 'duty' to educate me. This was when I was about 14 years old. One day we were hanging out in my room, when he asked 'do you wank?'
I didn't really know exactly what that was, but didn't want him to know. So of course right away I said I did. Steve obviously decided I was lying to cover myself, so he tried a different tactic. He opened his pants, pulled out his little erect penis, and said: 'I like to do this, it feels good' and proceeded to start masturbating.
I was getting aroused and curious watching, and when he suggested I should try I agreed, despite my nervousness. Soon I was going for it, completely unaware that I had just given myself away as a first-timer. I kept at it, and soon I had the strongest sensation of needing to pee - I remember saying 'It feels like I need to pee', but before I could get any further I exploded, shooting streams of cum everywhere.
The funny thing is, at that time Steve was still having dry orgasms, and had actually never experienced a true ejaculation before. When I exploded all over, he got the fright of his life. I think he thought he was responsible for his friend's dick exploding! I got cleaned up, and we never discussed it again. All credit to my good friend for his tact - the story of how I learned to masturbate, after I said I already did, must have been very tempting to re-tell. It was one of those 'I know that he knows that I know' types of scenarios.
Since those early days I have probably masturbated on average once a day - some days not at all, but others more then once a day. Being in various relationships hasn't changed anything at all, and a major turn-on for me is watching woman masturbate.
I'll try to write down a few experiences as they come to mind in subsequent postings.
