How many people here find themselves unusually attracted to more mature men (or women)? Conversely, how many mature men (or women) find themselves attracted to younger suitors where you act in many ways like a teacher or mentor - on all levels including sexual? I ask because this younger / older attraction seems like it's common now and has been for centuries. Would love to find other people who share this interest. I have personally been attracted to mature men for a long time. It started in college when I was introduced to a teacher from a nearby school. He was in his late 40's and a goodlooking/friendly guy. He was kind, nurturing, and extremely interested in taking me under his wing regarding some of my academic interests. On a sexual note, he was one of those guys who always had a nice outline of something large in his pants which added to the allure. I was coming to terms with my sexuality at the time and desparately wanted to be near a male figure I could trust and who would respect my boundaries. After much probing, he agreed to let me "explore" him. Not only was it highly erotic, but that bulge didn't lie....he was over 9" cut. We spent a lot of time hanging out, chatting, learning from each other and, almost always, kissing and jerking off. He really taught me a lot about sex and sexuality. Eventually I had to move and I, sadly, lost touch with him over time. For those endowed mature men (or women) out there who have played this role (or want to)....what is the allure on your end? Thoughts? Other people with similar interests / curiosities / stories?
