We had fun as teens and then again as seniors
I learned to jack off from a buddy and then taught my best friend this wonderful experience. As teens we jacked-off when together and also stroked each other to great orgasms. This started when we were about 13 and continued for the next few years. At the same time we started dating girls and had various girl friends. Girls weren't as promiscuous then, sure we could do some feel ups, etc. but most didn't want to give you a handjob. The mutual jack-off phase ended when we both got serious girl friends around age 18.. We never thought of ourselves as gay (word was 'queer' in those days). Just two horny teens getting our rocks off. We did solo jack-off's but it always felt better when we did each other.
Now move ahead about 45 years. Now, both in our mid 60's. My buddy was visiting a city about 100 miles from where I lived and he invited me to join him at his resort type hotel. His company reserved a single room, meaning there was only one bed. That night we went to dinner rehashed old times, talked about our kids and wives. Eventually we started talking about our current sex lives. Turns out they were the same. Our wives had lost interest and we both admitted to still jacking off for personal relief.
We went back to the hotel, we both made some comments about the discussion making us horny. By this time we were in the bed, we looked at each other and at just about the same time we said 'why not'. He reached for my cock, I reached for his. We stroked each other until we both shot huge loads. Having him stroke me felt just as good as when we were teens, he agreed. Next night and the following morning we did repeat performances. Since then I have seen him a few times. When we do meet we always find an opportunity to take care of each other. Old friends are the best. We still don't think we're gay... Now, just two very horny oldsters getting our rocks off!
To teens I say, nothing wrong with jacking off. Don't even think about it making you feel guilty. And if you do jack off with a best buddy. That doesn't make you 'gay'.
How could we survive if our arms/hands didn't reach just below our waists...LOL
