Deleted Member Posted May 8, 2010 If your prone to coasting through life, then I guess you enjoy the kiddie rides. I however, am a more of a risk taker. When I threw open my closet doors, some 17+ years ago, I made myself a promise, never to judge, look like I was disgusted nor shocked at anything pertaining to gay life, gay sex or the gay community. Granted, I have explored, tested, rode out and tasted, many aspects of gayness. I was able to make my own decisions, pick my own path and most of all, never looked back nor regretted anything I exposed myself too. 17+ years later, I find myself more educated than going to school. What I've learned ain't found in no text book, classroom or tutor. You could say, I jumped on one of the wildest rides possible! I can now look at many sides of the gay male community and at times, I can proudly say "been there, done that" and smile. I chuckle at the little flits who are clueless and can't comprehend why, to me, I think "yep, closed minded, what a shame." But then again, we're all individuals with our own thoughts and we each have chosen our own paths to follow. I was the only gay in my family and the 2nd in my families tree. I however, was the outspoken one. I delved into some pretty weird shit, did things to my body that would make the average homo squirm. My body was my amusement park and oh yeah, I'm still enjoying the ride. Granted, time doesn't run backwards and even if it did, would I do it all over again and change things? Yes and no. I'm quite happy with what I've learned, experienced, explored and felt. Now to find me a bloke who's just as open minded and comfortable in his own skin, would definitely make my ride quite enjoyable for two.
