First of all: No, this is not a thread for pedophiles. I am posting this thread so people can tell about when they figured out what this sex-thing was all about. Sadly, I don't remember exactly how I figured it out myself, but I got it mostly from books and documentaries about animals and by asking my mother some pretty direct questions, which she thankfully answered without any bull. My best childhood friend, on the other hand: I can remember exactly our conversation that suddenly made a lightbulb flash in his head, and it's actually a bit funny thinking about it now, partly because most of my vocabulary came from information about animals (no kidding). I think we were about eight- nine years old. I noticed that he was a bit worried about something, and when his parents were out in the garden, he asked me: -"You know? There is something weird that sometimes happens. I was watching TV yesterday, and this woman on TV took her clothes off. I mean ALL OF IT! And the weird thing? My pee-wee got all big and hard! And it's happened before too! Um...do you think that's weird?" -"I know! It's the same with animals, you know? When they want to make baby animals. They're in heat, and they want to mate. The male has to put the pee-wee inside the female, so it gets really hard." -"WHAT? But I have never done that with anyone!" -"I know. I wonder if our bodies THINK that we're going to mate, you know, because of the naked woman on TV. It sort of gets ready for it." Thankfully, he connected the dots, so when he got a baby (22 years later), I took part of the credit. What I think is very interesting is that my friend didn't have the slightest clue as to how any of this worked (not sure, but his parents may have told him some bullshit story), and he actually was worried that it was some kind of medical condition. Nevertheless, his body (and mine) needed no explanation: it reacted "appropriately" to the naked ladies :lol. I hadn't figured it all out: I thought that the "mating" was mostly for making babies, and that if you otherwise wanted to have a nice time with a woman, you would both get naked and touch and kiss and...that's it! (this is where movies normally cut the scene) Looked great to me.
