I have often discussed with gay friends the subject of how being with a man sexually for the very first time confirmed the emotional and physical attraction that I had for the same sex.
While some of my friends claim their first time with another man was enjoyable, an equal number of them talk about feeling used and abused. I think we can agree that whether good or bad, our very first sexual experience with another guy will forever be implanted into our memory banks.
I have a young man whose family I have known for a few years now. He is 19 and although quite handsome is also very shy and introverted and has never been out on a date with either male or female. I can tell by the questions and things he wants to discuss in private that he is more interested in the gay lifestyle than straight. He is not out to his family or anyone else as far as I know. Also, unless I am mistaken, I believe he has a crush on me.
I do not feel in a position to offer anything other than advice to him, but at the same time, I feel a little protective of him as well. Any thoughts, comments or feelings on this?
