    Remember those days??? A tangent on another thread made me think about this. I'm talking about those of us who were too young to go into a video store and just pick something up.

    For me, Calvin Klein and Undergear catalogues were my best friends. What did you all use?

    Playgirl magazines from the mid-1970s, and International Male catalogues at about the same time.

    Playgirl was the BEST! The first pics I ever saw of a Naked Man was in Playgirl.

    I actually tried to buy an issue myself but the cashier politely told me I was under age. icon_redface.gif

    Oh well...

    Internet porn was around by the time I jerked off for the first time (indicentally it took me about 2 years to figure out how to do it right. I didn't know I was supposed to stroke until ejaculation, who's supposed to teach you these things o_O). Anyway, it was around but not in abundance (It was like 1995-1997). I still used underwear catalogues or just other images or shirless men in regular magazines.

    Paying by the connection minute was so expensive it would have been cheaper to hire a male prostitute.

    Had a great imagination that did the trick for a long time. Of course has some magazines like men's workout and a VHS tape I made where I recorded parts of shows, songs, commercials, that had shirtless men in them.

    Got very creative until I was in college and could watch porn on my laptop in private.

    I would use my visual memories of guys I'd seen changing clothes at school, or running / swimming with little on. Visualizing the real thing did it for me, as well as Undergear, International Male, even Playgirl sometimes. I even got a post office box to enable me to secretly receive their packages. Kind of a thrill for me to ride my bike to the post office to see if a plain brown wrapped box was waiting for me back in those days. No way could I have had them ship my stuff straight to the house. No privacy...... because of help that snooped - and tattled. (Can't stand tattle-tales to this day).

    Various things.

    International male catalogs (wtf was up with those nasty looking pirate shirts) and straight porn, especially anything with Peter North in it.

    I inherits a Great Big Box of Porn from an USAF sergeant roommate who separated out, and among the many trashy magazines and VHS tapes was one particular movie collection with mostly Peter North and various females.

    For a few weeks, a few of my (obviously straight) buds would get together and jerk to these videos: they focused on whichever female's elongated, stretched out snatch was getting pounded while I was eyeballing Peter North's striated glutes pulsing as he tagged the puss.

    The cumshots were of course rather fascinating to us all regardless of what team we played for, lol!!

    For me it was the underwear section of JCPenney and Sears catalogues and then I found my true loves when one day it arrived .... International Male catalogue.

    When I got older I found out that some of my unlce's magazines had men as well as women in them.

    I was so far in the closet that even my childhood fantasies had beards. I fantasized about Lee Majors and Farrah Faucet sandwiches. :-)

    We had to be inventive way back whne the world was young and so was I. Back in the mid 1950's I first started collecting ads from tthe back of Popular Mecanics and other "men's" magazines from people like Charles Atlas. Often there would be pictures of guys who used whatever method of bodybuilding was being hawked. They were my first sex objects. Then I discovered muscle magazines, followed quickly by finding they were for sale in some used book stores for very low prices. I would buy a half dozen or so and smuggle them home in oversized mags like Life or Holiday. I brought a very few of them with me when I moved east for school. One day when I was home for Christmas I took the rest, dug a big hole in the side yard and burned and buried the rest of them.

    first time I went KABLOOIE, as you put it, was on a cruise ship with my best friend, we were dry humping and I got the urge and jumped up and ran to the bathroom and was like WTF IS THIS COMING OUT OF ME??? I really though something was wrong with me for like a week. Then I watched sex ed class and was like oohhhhh that's what that was.

    When I was a kid I just watched CHiPs and Dukes of Hazard in my room, jacking off under my sheets with my mother yelling, "What are you doing in there? Why is this door locked?"
