    I sure do feel like the odd man out.

    Having reached my mid-30's I always thought I was a fairly experienced person. I've travelled for foriegn lands, read about many subjects, married and been friends with my wife for 21 years, fathered 2 sons, etc.

    But after reading some of the posts here I sure do feel like the odd man out. I've never seen my brother naked. I was in my 30's before anyone put a ruler to my dick. I don't watch porn (much). I am and always have been 100% straight.

    I think one of the things I appreciate more than anything else, when reading everyone's posts, are the variety of people that have arrived at this forum. The population is very diverse and, as a result, I am learning a great deal about people.

    I have never been able to find anyone with the open mindedness to discuss most of these topics in person, so I never knew just how out of touch I was with so many experiences.

    Thank you for opening my eyes and mind a little further than it was just a few short weeks ago.

    Hi Ryan, and welcome to the LPSG!

    Fear not; you're not the odd man out here. There are plenty of us here who've never undressed for a living or used our tackle to lure away the girlfriends and wives of other men, who haven't memorized the flaccid and erect sizes of all living male relatives to within 1/8", and who made it to our 10th birthdays without realizing that we were well-endowed. Not surprisingly, a lot of us are just more reserved in our postings than our more flamboyant brethren. ;)

    That said ... I could not agree with you more that the LPSG is a great place to learn about the scope of human sexuality and sexual experience. Especially for us more reserved guys, who would NEVER discuss these things with other buddies in real life, it can all be a real eye-opener!

    Glad to have you here.

    Steve :happy:

    What about us who are tryin to take the husband from the wives? :p

    Just kidding. I don't mess with men who are in relationships. Unless it's a consentual threesome.

    Don't feel left out. I've never shown my erection to a relative or any male friends. I also have no idea how hung my father or brother are and don't care to know. But reading here you'd think every other guy must have done those things.

    Remember that a lot of people here are sharing experiences based on a question or something that someone else shared. But the vast majority of us don't respond to any one post, so there's kind of a "silent majority" on pretty much every topic. Except for the "photoshopped dicks" threads. I think everyone has posted on that about ten times by now.

    Welcome to the club! Whatever your experiences, we'll look forward to having you share them when you feel comfortable. We all learn from each other and the wealth of knowledge found here is from everyone who shares their bit. I think a lot of find a communication opportunity here that we lack in real life, so we're all right there with you on that.

    welcome, Ryan. you are merely a rather sheltered hetero . Clearly, you have never lived in CA.

    a visit here would be a cultural exploration for you. Hope you dont feel left out, and it is a pleasure to respond to you.

    The world benefits from all people with varied life experiences willing to share them. :hi:

    Nothing you say is a bad thing, some people are just more sexually experianced and more willing to learn then others at an earlier age.

    Personally it's not always easy being as sexually open at a younger age, (I started at 12.. yeah imange that one) Dont get me wrong I wouldn't change it for the world but ti did bring some hardships.

    Just remember if you don't feel right doing something sexually or non sexually dont do it yet the time will come to experiance that.

    other then that welcome to the world of open sexuality I know most of america is against it which is sad.

    Chalk me up as another one on the "odd man out/average guy" list, Ryandaoc. Modest in my experiences and behavior, also not into porn, and only seen one of my three brothers nude (and certainly not erect then).

    And that's OK. We each relate to and express our sexuality in different ways relative to our lives, needs, and personalities. That's part of what's so great about this place--that when it's "working," we all share our personal experiences and grow from that sharing.

    None of us is alone here, my friend. That's the whole point. :hug:

    Haven't.

    Have, sorta. Does it count if I didn't know they had boyfriends?

    Ew. Just ew.

    I think I was like 12 before I had any idea. It was confirmed at 14.
