Like a lot of kids in the early 80's I spent a great deal of time at home by myself. Around 12 or 13 I started to become greatly aware of the changes in my body as I grew and developed pubic hair and started to get the features of a man. Many of my friends at the time were also home along and they like many boys looked for access to porn in their father's closets. Playboy, Penthouse and some harder core stuff were always around. This made me very aware of my sexuality and the possibility of masturbation
My parents had a book from Nancy Friday, 'Men in Love', which had numerous fantasies in it. I would often read about sex and masturbation. At this age I still did not know about how to cum or what exactly an orgasm or masturbation was, but I saw from the stories in the book that it was something to be discovered. I often had hardons from reading these stories and wondered how I could make myself feel like the men in the stories. It was one day that I thought that it would be interesting to see what would happen if I stroked my penis. I had gotten some soap and ran my hand up and down my now slippery penis. The feeling was unlike any I knew. All of a sudden, I got the electric feeling as the tip of my penis got fat and all of a sudden I shot what was my first load of cum ever. This started a lifelong adventure with masturbation that I still enjoy to this day. I'm 32 now, married, but I enjoy masturbation still a few times a week. I have often thought of the fun of trying to expand my masturbation into a group thing or circle jerk, this was something I never got to do as a youth. Maybe someday I will finally have this experience too.
I really enjoy the Solo site and hope that it continues to be a free and healthy exchange of people's masturbation activity.
