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.

I can remember getting "stiffies" as a very young child. Of course I had no idea why this part of my body that passed "wee wee" got stiff and hard at odd times. Well, at the age of 9 I was versed in "the birds and the bees." I was unaware of the concept of ************, but I became very much aware of the things that caused my erections. When I was 8 I started taking classical guitar lessons. Playing guitar was one of the trigger mechanisms to cause me to have an erection. I didn't know why at the time, but it was the vibrations from my guitar that transferred to my groin area while playing that made me have an erection. When I was 12 I started taking bass guitar lessons. I remember one day, at my bass lessons, the amp my bass was plugged into was less than a foot away from me, and when I began to play I could feel the intense vibrations all over my body. I got the mother lode of all erections, I actually began ***********! I didn't know what was actually happening, but it felt so damn good! My briefs were wet from the all of my ********** *****, and thank goodness I was wearing dark blue jeans. I wonder to this day if my bass teacher knew I was ***********. This wasn't the only time I ********** without provocation while playing bass. It happened to me several times and even once while I was practicing at a friends house during a jam session when I was 15. And there was an incident when I was in my early 20's, playing bass in a band at a country western club, dressed in cowboy garb, that I had a massive erection followed by an unprovoked *********** right on stage! Thankfully I was wearing dark colored jeans, and my guitar hid the bulge in my pants. I don't have time to play guitar or bass much anymore, but sometimes I wonder if "something unprovoked" would happen to me again.

As a preteen I had no real awareness of erections either until I camped out in the back garden with my best friend when we were about 13. We decided to run around in the dark in the back garden at night with our pajama bottoms off. It was fun and a new thrill. When we got back to the tent, in a dimly lit part of the garden I could make out that my best friend's penis was sticking straight out. I was fascinated. When I looked down I then saw that mine too was sticking out more, although not to the extent of my friends. I remember him looking at me with a mixture of pride, confusion and embarrassment. However, we were both eager to examine each other in the tent. With the flashlight we investigated this new phenomena. I was amazed that he had doubled in length and that particularly at the base he looked "fuller". It also bobbed up and down visibly, especially when I touched it. While I was touching it, he got harder still, growing to the length of my index finger, but it was beginning to hurt him. We pulled his foreskin a little way back but it was tight and still well attached to the glans, not that we really understood what we were looking at or that things would change. When we turned our attention to mine I realized the uncomfortable feeling I had been dimly aware of was because I had grown bigger than I had ever seen mine. I remember actually being scared. It was sticking forward rising off my thighs. It was not as long or hard as my friends but was still as long as his thumb. My foreskin would not really retract at all and the glans underneath was very sensitive. Showing how naive we where we both assumed that our stiffness was because we would soon need to pee. Which we actually did a little later, so that myth was not busted that night. We continued to regularly camp out and investigate each other. Although not gay, we were always very comfortable being naked together and I'm thankful for the close and supportive relationship we had through high school and puberty.

My first experience of a full erection, that I remember, was on a quiet beach in the south of France later that same summer. I was on holiday with my parents, my best friend, his parents and his older sister and her friend.
The first day we went to the beach my parents were a little slow getting ready. By the time we got there everyone else was settled in. My best friend's sister and her friend (both 16) were sunbathing in bikini's.
My best friend was standing up beside his mother who was putting sun scream on him and as in previous holidays we'd gone on, he was already naked. Although I too usually went naked this time I was a little bit more aware of myself and particularly the older girls so I was a little nervous. Once we got to the beach and set up I kind of forgot until I was standing in just my shorts and my mother was putting sun cream on my chest and back. I felt my heart thumping as my mother went for the waistband of my shorts. Down they came and with the freedom I actually relaxed, I had nothing the girls hadn't seen before.
For the rest of the morning I played on the beach and just tried not to think too much about being naked in front of the girls. If I didn't care I hoped they won't take any new notice. This worked until the early afternoon when we were playing swing ball. As was usually the case the girls often went topless for a while, not that I cared. But this time while playing an energetic game of swingball with my friend sister I began to notice her bouncing beasts which were small but very pert and pointy. Coupled with the exertion I began to feel uncomfortable downstairs. However, it was only when my friends sister started smiling at me that I looked down to see my penis pointing straight back up at me. I was mortified and confused. My first reaction was to pretend there was nothing wrong and push my bottom out a bit to make it less conspicuous. However, now my friend who was playing swingball next to us with his sisters friend, was smiling as well. At this point my friends sister asked "is everything OK, is it hurting?", still smiling. Her friend, also topless with nice breasts, which didn't help, then looked, I felt completely humiliated and probably near tears, but she said don't make fun of him and told me it was normal. Both girls were then quite concerned because my foreskin had some back a bit and it looked red and sore, which it was. The mixture of emotions, humiliation, arousal, compassion and an unconscious sexual desire was too much for me and I began to cry. However the girls took me to a rock, sat down with me and wiped some cold water on my face. I Remember telling them my penis was really saw and that it wasn't usually this big (index finger length). My friend started to get worried as his began to go up. The girls new both of us boys were naive late developers and a bit confused so they explained what erections were to us in simple terms. I was stunned that a girls breasts could do that to my penis. The girls also jokingly suggested that they should keep their tops on in future around us boys. They were worried about how sore I looked and poured some cold water on my erection which felt pretty good. The girls remarked on how tight both mine and my friends foreskins were but that it was probably because we were still so young. It all calmed down after a while and I remained comfortable being naked in front of them for the rest of the holiday.

What a wonderful story!!

i like that

My brother isn't gay but had some erections with other guys when he was on our former school's wrestling team. I didn't know about that until I was in my second year at college and he was year behind me. He told me after we had begun visiting a nudist park about an hour away from our school.

He said he never got an erection during competition, but it happened a few times during practice at our home or a team mate friend's home. We concluded this was just a result of naked skin against naked skin, particularly during a few times the practice was while naked. That made sense to me. Erections for guys are normal.

On one occasion, a former friend grasped his penis while they wrestled and began ************ him.. My brother didn't stop him but couldn't bring himself to do the same thing with the other guy. That was a one-time thing, didn't happen again.

Wonderful story.
My erections started at a very young age. My first ****** happened while taking a shower at home. Though dry, I became a ************ freak!
I also knew that I was different then others, because I would get excited by seeing a pretty girl, or just staring at a hot guy, and this reaction to both sexes happened at a very young age also.
And then, the school showers. Ah Gym class. Track, track meets, guys of every shape and size.........

ive seen nice ones

Mmm!! All are nice huh baby! Some are exquisite!!

ive blew a **** n gym shower

Im a girl and I'm getting REALLY WET I mean REALLY REALLY WET reading this
Btw I'm 22

A nice story. I like your observations about the situation and your friendship. I had my first erection one evening in bed when I was about seven. My foreskin was still tight and my whole penis felt uncomfortable. I do not remember another erection till I was twelve and that was what prompted me to ************ and ******. I did not understand all three - erection, ************, ****** - at the time, or realise that other boys had or did them as well. I was sexually innocent for a long time.

Lovely comment thank you oneofnine, interesting name that. I liked the thought of being a non sexual person for a long time but felt left out later in my childhood.

Such a range of comments thank you all so much. Brandy1000 thanks for the point of view too.

Thanks for the comment's, i have tried hard to recall a hard on before the age of 10 but can not. I saw my first ***** in the park when I was as young as 6 0r 7 but do not remember getting hard. I didn't associate dicks with sex at the time. The ***** only showed women. It was only later as I say. I do not disagree with anyone about pre-pubescent erections but i really have no memory of them. As i said before, i only became sexually aware at the back end of 10.

Alex, thank you for you comment. Yes i have had a look for him but he doesn't exist anywhere as far as i can see.<br />
<br />
Interesting you say about early boners. I should perhaps say that my first memory was this. Maybe i had had some and not known about it before. I really do not remember having an erection before i was 10. I became sexually aware at 10 and maybe that associated feeling gave me the memories.
