You know how they say "look at how a guy treats his mom, that's how he'll treat his girlfriend"

Do you think that it applies the same way to a gay guys bf?

Anyone else love licking balls?

I love the sounds and the contraction that comes with slurping one nut into my mouth and then licking to the bottom of his sac.

It seems to be the "hidden button" for most guys that I've been with. Took me so long to get my first gf to get both in her mouth. That bitch sucked at everything sexual but she was such a whore...ugh.

Anyway, how about a good, old-fashioned "secret erogenous tips" thread?

I got a few great tips from when i was fucking women, but goddamn gay guys can be so immature

>>5518834
The worst part is when people are not into that and you skip that part when with your boyfriend.

You can't really mention that so easy off a second date.

So has any else ever experienced a feeling of inferiority if they date a person they feel is out of their league? Hell above and beyond their league?
So much so you feel frustrstion knowing you could never be as good looking as they are.

I've been kinda getting this feeling and well. It makes me feel awful, I was just curious if anyone else gets it. Or something similar anyway.

Im 18 years old, I was born male but I am pretty certain I'm transgender. I think deep down I prefer guys. I've only had what I could call a crush on someone a few times but it's always been guys. I constantly try to tell myself that I'm bisexual, but I'm not sure, I've only ever had a few girl friends and I've never had a girlfriend.

On top of everything I feel anxious and depressed I lot of the time, and I think it's seriously affected my sex drive, I find it hard to feel anything unless I'm high.

What does this mean

Can /lgbt/ explain to me why they like vaginas? Not a troll here, I know it sounds like it. I'm an ace girl who could see myself dating another girl, but the idea of going down on her wigs me out. I don't see how vaginas can be hot. They just seem too much like a cut/wound to be attractive to me. Maybe If they were described in a different and nicer way I could train myself to not be repulsed? Thanks in advance

The vagina is like a warm, wet blanket, created to hold the penis inside. This isn't the hottest thing about the vagina though. What I find very attractive about the vag is what it represents to me, total submission. That feeling when a girl gets on her back and opens her legs, allowing you inside of her body. That's just hot.

the vagina is the part that is inside, the outside is called vulva.

Gay guy here. Vag is much better than a butt. I like men, but physically speaking I'd take the feeling of a vagina over a butt any day. Experience is from my "straight" days in HS and a handful of threeways.

>What I find very attractive about the vag is what it represents to me, total submission. That feeling when a girl gets on her back and opens her legs, allowing you inside of her body. That's just hot.

I endorse this statement.

Shit, I find homosex to be really hot, and I'd secretly love the idea off sucking a built man with a big dick and have him fuck me in the ass(just 69 with average looking men). But Sometimes I just can seem to swallow the fact that I'm actually gay, I've been a "straight man" for so long. I'm too scared to have homosex with a stranger on grindr because I'm afraid of the shame I'll feel afterwards.

I just had an shameful anxiety induced masturbation session thinking about men, hell I tried jerking off to music videos of hot girls...

Maybe you can't "swallow " the fact that you're gay because of your gag reflex?? ;3

13 years ago I told my mom that I was I liked men. I told her in confidence because I trusted my mom and figured she would support me since I was her son. She didn't and told my father, they disowned me after a long session of them insulting me. My dad said he refused to have a son who was a faggot and kicked me out. I was 16, I ended up moving in with my best friend who is now my husband.

I hadn't spoken to my parents since until recently. I've gotten married since then and have had very good success career wise and have been having a great life with my...

Sounds rather conclusively gay to me then.

You do know that there are oodles of gay men who meet marry fuck and love women, then go on to divorce and suck cock the rest of their lives, spending the holidays with their kids and grandkids from former marriages.
