I have had a larger-than-average penis all my life. This factor contributed greatly to my starting to masturbate. I was obsessed with penises, from the 6th grade on, I found they could "get big." This amazing quality was mind-boggling to me. I had a lot of friends, and during that time we had a lot of sleepovers. As most boys this age, we were just learning about sex and what our penises actually did. I began my masturbation career at one of these sleepovers. A group of my friends, 10 of us, were talking about girls and how sometimes when we thought of them, our penises became larger. The conversation eventually went to who had the largest penis. I knew mine for what it was, but I had never compared before, so I was nervous. Plus, I also had quite a bit of pubic hair at the time — something I noticed not many of my friends had — so this added to my anxiety. I thought maybe there was something wrong with me. Well, someone suggested we all drop our pants, "get it big," and then use a ruler to measure and make it official. No one objected to this, so I did not, either. My friends all got theirs big, as did I. Their mouths dropped when they saw how big mine was, and my mouth dropped when I saw how small theirs were. I heard all sorts of comments — "How can it be that big?" ... "It must be 12 inches" ... "How did you get all that hair?" We still wanted to make it official, so one of my friends went around a measured. Most of my friends were just reaching 5 inches, with 2 at only 4. I topped the group at 7.3 inches. I didn't know what to say. I instantly became "famous" around my friends. So we were all standing there in a circle, with our penises erect, when someone said, "Hey, have any of you rubbed yourself and gotten a really good feeling?" About 3 people said yes. He then suggested they show the rest of us what to do. So the 4 of them stood there rubbing their penises up and down, telling us to do the same and wait for the best feeling ever. We did. In about 5 minutes, 6 of us had reached climax and were saying how wonderful it would be when we did. Eventually the rest of us climaxed. There was another surprise for everyone: I, my best friend, and another guy had white stuff come out of our penises. We were scared and thought we had done something wrong, but one of the other guys explained that was normal and it was called semen. He had learned this from his parents. So that is how I learned to masturbate, surrounded by a circle of friends. From that point on, I became an avid masturbator. My technique stayed the same for about 3 months, and then I discovered something else I could do. One day while masturbating in the shower, a thought came to me: What if I could put my penis into my mouth, like the girls do to the guys in the movies my friends and I watch? So I tried and succeeded with flying colors. Because I had a large penis and because the rest of my body hadn't grown much, I was able to fit most of it into my mouth. It felt great! I continued to do this, for more than one reason. One was it felt better than anything I had ever done. Another was I could do it without making much noise. And a third reason was, no cleanup. (For those of you who have tasted semen and think it is awful, let me say I thought so, too, the first 5 times I ate it — but after a while it doesn't taste bad anymore.) Sadly, after a few years I was no longer able to do this because the rest of my body grew. High school provided many more masturbation episodes. One experience happened freshman year. I had a friend (actually one of the 10 from my first story) — one of those guys all the girls liked, and who had already had his share of sexual experiences. One day he came to my house. We were watching a porno and something got us to reminisce about 7th grade, and inevitably to that fateful sleepover. Eventually he said, "I bet mine is bigger than yours now." I felt the need to defend myself, so I said prove it. We dropped our pants and became erect. We didn't use a ruler; we just stood next to each other and looked. We decided we were about equal, so I put mine back into my pants. My friend looked at me and said, "Hey, you don't want to put it back like that — let's masturbate." I had no problem with this, so I dropped my pants and began to stroke. While doing this, I told him about the oral ability I had lost. He was interested. We talked for a while, but neither of us had climaxed yet. Suddenly he turned to his side and put my penis into his mouth. The feeling was great — better than anything I could do to myself. I was gone in about 2 minutes. I felt kind of weird, but I figured he had done a favor for me, so I might as well do it for him, too — so I did. He said it was great, too. After that we became weekly masturbation buddies, but we decided not to use our mouths anymore because we thought it was kind of gay. The next masturbation experience was the first one I had with a girl. A girl I had been dating came over to my house one night to watch a movie. It had a sex scene in it, and I became very aroused — with her head resting on my crotch. She started moving her head and then said, "What is this?" kind of excited. I was mortified. I said, "Sorry, I couldn't help it — the movie..." She said quickly, "Oh, that's okay, but now I want to see it." She unzipped my pants and took it out. She said, "Wow, this is pretty big" — and then she proceed to give me a hand job. It was pretty good, because it was the first time I had ever climaxed while with a girl, but honestly it didn't match what I had done with my friend freshman year. The last and most recent experience I had was with my new girlfriend. I invited her over to my house for dinner, alone. Dinner was great, and the whole time she was making sexual innuendoes. Well, needless to say, I became aroused and needed to relieve myself. I told her I'd be back, and I went to the bathroom. Obviously she saw right through me, because she stood outside the door and started running her fingers down it. This only added to the arousal. I was going full speed in the middle of my bathroom when she opened the door. I was shocked at first and I stopped immediately. Then she walked over to me, grabbed my penis, and started stroking. I was happy because this would be the second experience I would have with a girl. Then it got better. Suddenly I felt my penis immersed in a warm, wet place. I opened my eyes to see it in her mouth. All I could think was WOW. It only took a couple of minutes. I can now say that was better than anything I have ever done. Even though my sex life is sort of taking off, I don't think I will ever stop masturbating. The time you spend touching and exploring you body can never be replaced. Anyway that's my masturbation history so far. My masturbation life has been wonderful and varied, and who knows what the future may hold. I still have college!
