Re: How old were you the first time you masturbated?
How old were you when you first masturbated?
My oldest memories of doing this are from when I was three years old, that said I have no doubt I was even younger when I started doing that.
How old were you when you first masturbated to orgasm?
As far as I can remember I was 11 years old.
What were you thinking about while masturbating?
As best as I can remember when I was 3-4 years old, I just enjoyed what it felt like so wanted to keep doing it. Later when I was 11, I was already quite aware that i was a very sexual person, so I had sexual thoughts and dreams at that age about some girls who were in my class at school.
How did you find out about sex?
Some of my friends talking about it at school when I was around 5 years old.
What did you learn about it?
All sorts of nonsense from them, that I can't really recall, except to say I remember I/we had little idea about what we were talking about.
What did you think about it when you first saw anything about it?
I was 7 years old (1978) when some of my friends and I found a stash of porn magazines, hidden on one of the tracks beside a creek we would often play around on weekends. My friends (both boys and girls) and I, looked at the pictures and thought they were funny.
That said when I was 11-12 some of my peer group of friends (3 boys & 3 girls including me) were really curious about sex. So at recess or lunchtime we would sometimes hang out at the bottom of the school's nature garden where we as boy girl couples first tried lip kissing, holding hands, tongue kissing, looking at each others private parts, and touching each others genitalia, watching each other pee. There were no adults involved nor older or younger children either, and there was no way any of us told our parents or shared what we did with some of our other friends from school.
Then from 13-14 I had no sexual contact with anyone (I went to a boys only High School and had little contact with girls), so consequently had no girlfriends until I turned 15 when a Scottish girl who had just moved to Australia asked me to be her boyfriend.
Then from 16, I went to a co-ed High School and sometimes had girlfriends and did lots of sexual things except for PIV sex, which I didn't do until I was 17 after I joined the Army. Funnily enough despite being very sexual, when I was 16 in year 10 of High School, I turned down an offer of virginity from an 18 year old (girl/woman) who was in Year 12 and wanted me to be her boyfriend.
I have no doubt many/most of you have had very different experiences than mine, yet I certainly am not alone in my experiences.
All my sexual experiences growing up, always felt completely natural, and comfortable to me. Awkwardness, discomfort, not knowing what to do has never been an issue, it has always been so very easy. Being sexual at any age for me has always felt like a perfect fit.
