I've been reading the 'Confession Time' thread and I've found the variety of responses so interesting. Especially the replies that reveal a 'discovery' of something you're into. I always wonder what the sources are for these predelictions
I'm not into anything noteworthy but I can see influences on my style. And it' fascinating to look down the road leading back to our sexual origins. We've all got moments and sensations from our childhood that felt slightly other worldy or magical that later in life the word 'erotic' only goes so far to explain.
I remember being very young and teachers getting classes to play a game where we put our heads down upon the desk and our thumbs up (do you remember this game?) then one of seven standing at the front came and pressed your thumbs down before you guessed who had touched you. I don't what it was, the brief sensation of touch, the anonymity, the deprivation of senses to make you more aware of your intuition? I can't put my finger upon it but it stuck with me.....And now I find I rely on really being able to 'sense' my lovers and trying to read their minds as well as their bodies.
Maybe it's a useful thing in life if you're ever recoving from confusion or sexual problems to remember a moment where your sexuality had nothing to do with 'acts' but that magical feeling that reaches your core.
Does anyone else remember any time in their life that shaped their sexual selves? Maybe it was yesterday afternoon :) I've heard some great responses from friends so I'm curious about you now troops. Let me know.
