Enjoy the moment but never take it for granted.
As I wrote in my previous installment, my childhood friend Harry was my first true experience with 'gay' sexual experimentation. It all started rather innocently enough, two adolescent pre-teen boys curious about their bodies and dealing with strange, new sexual feelings and urges. After the first initial episode of 'you show me yours, I'll show you mine' it became more of an in-depth exploration of each others' bodies and mutual masturbation. It actually became quite habit forming and a somewhat daily routine for us. I think we just became really comfortable with one another and it felt good.
We always started by pulling our pants and underwear down and one of us lying on our back across the mattress with our legs hanging off the side of the bed while the other kneeled on the floor. The one on the floor would begin to fondle the others' penis and jerk him off. After a time we would switch places and repeat the process. Sometimes we'd get bored and try new things like kissing and giving hickies or practicing oral sex. Have you ever wondered how we even learn about that? It's not like someone teaches you. You just know. That's always been a mystery to me.
Harry and I had these secret sessions nearly everyday that summer until school started back. Thinking back on it though, I can't ever really recall Harry experiencing a full fledged orgasm where he actually ejaculated. I, on the other hand, did enough for the both of us. We both learned a lot from one another and about one another. I look back on those lazy summer afternoons with great fondness and sometimes wish that I could go back and relive some of them. Some years later as a young adult, my friend chose to take his own life for whatever reasons. I think of him often and miss the friendship and experiences we shared as we grew up. If you have such a friendship now, enjoy it, cherish it, and make some wonderful memories to last a lifetime.
