    I'd love to get into wrestling. Need someone to show me the ropes, no pun intended.

    Every human is born with a "fighting instinct." The young of each species like to wrestle around even for no apparent reason. Two kittens who lived with me got into playful bouts all day long until they "grew out of it." Once I was looking on as one of my nephews - 2 years old at the time - chased his older brother, then four, across two rooms. After tackling him from behind he promptly applied a textbook full nelson and held it until their father yelled at them. (One of the earliest and most broken rules in their house was, "NO WRESTLING." LOL) They'd never watched even fake rasslin' on TV, or attended any matches. Point being, it's just like the promo clip I liked for a tournament had in its voice-over: "We all wrestled early in life. Some of us were lucky enough to not grow up."

    Ohio State has one of the better collegiate wrestling programs in the country and one of the strongest in the Midwest - which is definitely saying something. The season is just now getting underway in high school and college. So make a point of attending a dual meet, whether it be at OSU or another college or your local high school. You rarely have to pay to get in because regular meets get such a low turnout. Before long you'll be observing one of the things which make this sport great: How you're built says nothing about how good you can be. Nothing says you have to own a pit bull physique to get your hand raised at the end of a match. Cael Sanderson, never defeated throughout his college career, sure didn't - and he left a trail of muscleheads behind him. Physical strength definitely plays a part, but speed + balance + quick thinking are the key.

    If you're a student at OSU, check your phys-ed course listings. Most likely there's at least one wrestling class there - good times, easy credits! Now I bet I know one thing you're thinking: "As soon as I walk in there I'm gonna pop a woody. icon_eek.gif" There are two ways around that. One is of course to take matters into your own hand just before leaving to get there on time. The other is to realize that no one's likely to pay much mind to that. All the close grips, rolling around, and friction can bring on a stiff cock in any guy whether he's gay or not. Just wear loose gear and do a quick tuck-in with your back turned if you need to. Know that even when it's just for fun in a class, your brain will be focused on prevailing against your opponent and not how good of a sex partner he'd be. If you've swum competitively, is your mind on how you'll do in the event? Or are you checking out the row of toned guys in Speedos on the starting blocks? It's the exact same idea.

    You already have the instincts, so it's great that you're looking to build on and refine them. Best o' luck!
