My First Experience Of What An Erection Was.It seems odd to me now as an adult that back when i was a preteen boy i had no idea what an erection was and how powerful an attraction i would have to them as an adult.
My very first experience of what an erection actually was came while i was at school. I was in my first year of high school and thrown into the pubescent world that leads to adulthood. I was introduced to an array of new friends that i had never before seen and although one or two of my Middle School friends made there way up into the same High School i was only in a class with one other boy who i knew from my previous life in Middle school.
P.E. Classes were a whole new deal at high school where two classes were taught together so the boys changing rooms were packed with young boys like me, i thought that most were as embarrassed as i that we had to have showers after the relentless Rugby practice's and cross country runs. It was while showering that i first became aware of the power a penis can have.
All us boys were differently developed in that first year. I remember one boy having a great bush of pubic hair round his penis and up his belly he was proud of this and envy spread among most of the boys. I had no clue what it was and found it odd the boy made so much of it. I was sexually naive and knew very little about sexual things. I always held back and liked to shower late so as not to be over crowded and not be involved with the wild horse play the boys would indulge in.
The day i became aware that a penis could change from being soft to erection was one day in those shower's a few weeks into the first term. There were just four of us left in the communal showers washing ourselves off. I had and have a wandering eye and have a natural curiosity about other people. This naturally meant i was checking out the boys showering with me on that day. I became aware of the boy in the shower next to me. His Penis fully exposed to me from the side was sticking straight up and had lengthened and thickened up. I was amazed by the sudden change in the shape size and stature of the thing. One of the other boys also noticed and started to call out, ' Bridges has a hard on, Bridges has a hard on ' Over and over. This bought a crowd of boy back into the entry of the shower and they all started jeering and calling him ' Gay '. The Boy, Ian, became upset and grabbed his towel and covered himself then run off out past the boys into the changing room where he quickly dressed while still wet and run out into the hall. The boy's never stopped calling and jeering the whole time. I hung back confused by the whole affair. I wondered what ' Gay ' was and what a ' Hard on ' was for and why it happened to Ian.
That was it my first experience of an erection. How cruel it was of the gang of boys to react like that. Most of them probably not even experiencing an erection themselves were jealous and just joined in to be part of the gang.
Later in the Day i had a chance to talk to Ian. We became great friends and i learned about sex and erections with him. We never did anything together both of us were more interested in the differences in our bodies as we changed from boys into young men. We compared penis size shape and the differences in amount of pubic hair. I didn't have my first Erection for a good few months and my fore skin didn't separate from my glans to form the corona for a year and if i had not had my friend Ian i would have been terrified when this started to happen. Ian had gone through this before he got to High School and it was the first thing i noticed in his penis that differed from mine. His large flared end nothing like mine with the skin attached to the glans giving it a smooth appearence, he told me it took his foreskin six months to disconnect from the glans.
I guess I have Ian to thank for my relaxed attitude to all the changes my body went through in puberty. I often wonder what ever happened to Ian. When he and i left school we never saw one another again. I wonder if he was gay, i knew i was even back then but just didn't have a word to describe it, until that day in the shower....
Thank you Ian for being my Friend.
