How did you learn about sex? I don’t mean “the birds and the bees,” and I don’t mean how to practice “safe sex” or about birth control, or “how to pick up girls.” I’m asking about the mechanics, the nuts (sorry) and bolts of sex. How did you learn about how to suck cock? Or eat pussy? Or other non-PIV sexual activities? How did you learn to explore new positions? Guys, how did you learn endurance, and to avoid premature ejaculation? How did you learn about your less commonplace erogenous zones? I mean, those areas other than between your legs. How did you learn to please your partner? Or, to please yourself? How did you choose your longer term sex partners? Or did you let them choose you? How did you come to terms with your proclivities that might be considered a little kinky or off plumb? Did you learn from books? I mean like Sex Positions Illustrated, Kama Sutra, or The Joy of Sex. Did you get knowledge from friends? Relatives? (My cousin Christine was a wealth of info.) Did you learn from online porn, either videos or written? Did you have a partner or lover that was your sex teacher or mentor? Or did you just muddle on through? I had a mentor. Not a relationship mentor. Or a life mentor. A sex mentor. I didn’t realize it at the time, but that’s what he was. He died a couple of months ago in our hometown, and I just found out last week. It hit me much harder than I ever would have dreamed. I’m still dealing with the shock and the loss. I’ll probably have more to say, here and probably other threads as well.
