Back in the 1950's sex education in England was non-existant, it was a case of finding out from your peer group.
When I was about ten I went on my first scout camp, after setting up we were sent to our tents by the scoutmasters to rest while they organised the evening meal.
Our patrol leader surprised us all by lying on his sleeping bag and calling over the second to 'sort him out'.
This must have been a regular occurance between them because he undid the patrol leaders belt and buttons, eased his shorts down and then pulled his cock out from his underpants and started rubbing it up and down. This was all new to us! Within a few minutes he shot cum all over his chest. We were all very impressed and he then felt all of us who were by now very hard. The patrol leader then gave us a sex lesson and wanked his second.
I remembered this but try as I could, wanking did nothing for me until one day at school.
It was in art class, I was sitting next to my friend when suddenly I felt his hand on the top of my right thigh, trying to get up the leg of my shorts, he couldn't because the material was too tight. I pushed his hand away and said no, but he kept trying. After about his third attempt my cock was getting quite hard and my resolve was weakening and I noticed a slight lump in his trousers too. He then whispered 'You can feel mine if you like'. So I thought what the hell, I raised my leg a bit and he slid his hand up the leg of my shorts and then worked his fingers around my underpants where he found my cock, whilst I did the same to him. Mine then was about three and a half inches whereas his was only two inches erect. We spent the rest of the lesson with our hands holding each others cocks feeling wonderful feelings.
At break time I needed a pee, so I went up to the boys toilet block but what I found was a cock fight in full swing. The object of the game was to grab the other boys cock through his trousers and feel it for as long as possible. I was game for this but changed the rules a bit, instead of defending myself I used both hands and undid his trousers, found the gap in his pants and grabbed his cock, mind you he had mine out within a minute, but it was worth it! The sensations were out of this world.
That night back home I had my first successful wank, it was wonderful even though I was firing blanks.
We had to be careful because of the mess when we played with each others cocks in class, tissues hadn't been invented then!
