Well! Hello! I experienced my first gay sexual act about 7 months ago now i guess? I met this guy in a college class i was in and we became friends. Well, one day out of no where when we were cleaning his pool if i had ever questioned my sexuality. At first i was like thrown off completely by the question! like i just froze and was confused on why i was even getting asked this. because i had no gay tendencies at all. I never acted feminin or anything. He just randomly asked me! So i responded with saying no im not gay but said if he was i dont care at all. And he said he was not gay but was just wondering about it. about 20 minutes later after we were finished cleaning his pool he asked me if i masturbated on a regular basis and if so he wanted to know if he could watch me masturbate. I didnt really want to at the time because i was completely blown away by that whole conversation. well a few days later i went back to his house and he and i were just sitting there on his back yard porch and i brought up the conversation we had the previous week. and i asked him if he wanted to go in the pool and masturbate. He said sure. So we began to watch each other masturbate and then for some STRANGE reason i walked up to him with out hesitation or anything and started kissing him and i i started to reach for his penis and he asked me if i was sure. and i said yes i want to see if i like this. So i started to stroke his penis and i was massaging my penis as well. I think i ended up cumming first and then i started stroking his penis harder to make him cum and honestly that was the best first experience i have ever had for sex. I really enjoyed that! I guess we got very comfortable with each other because now we watch each other or help each other almost every week! I guess the problem with this is i am trying to figure out my sexuallity because every since he and i started messing around i have not even tried to get a girl! Like the thought has never even crossed my mind! So i guess i am trying to figure out what is goin on in my head lol! I am def attracted to women! but i really enjoy giving him pleasure! I find myself doing girly things when i am with him too lol... Like the jeans i wear are tighter and i wear underwear that is very form fitting lol.. I dono! thats my story..
