I've only ever participated in the classiest gang-bangs and orgies. I never swallowed EVERYTHING, some guys are a bit salty or otherwise untasty, and I reserve the right to spit out.
When I was still single my values were to have a good but safe time, endangering no one, least of all myself. But beyond that, I tried to have as much sex as I could, knowing that as a very "late bloomer" I only had a very brief window in which to indulge myself before my age caught up with me.
And now it has. But I had as much fun in that short time, and amassed as many great memories, as some guys do in many decades, or some never at all. I played safe, but I played hard (slight pun intended), and I have no shame about it, no regrets, and still have plenty of values.
