the origins of sexual curiosity

curiosity, is innate...children are born with a desire to question and learn about their environment..so when does this curiosity shift towards the sexual?...or is it always there, hidden in the unknown realm of our inner being?...

i remember my mother remarking on my own personal curiosities...just typical things, i suppose...but i have read of others whose own sexual interests began we before hormones and such began kicking in...although i had an early sexual experience that was not of my own choice, i often wonder if my curiosities are a result of that experience or if the curiosities would still be present irregardless?...

i remember, once, finding a book that my parents got as a "bonus" through purchasing these children's bible stories books or something...it was called "to have and to hold"...i remember my mother flipping through it and somehow it ended up in a box in the garage...

i picked that book up one day and was mesmerized by what i saw...there were a lot of words (that i did not bother to read) and some pictures (not real, just images) of men and women in various sexual activities...the book was supposed to support a healthy sexual relationship between married couples...

over the years, i would periodically run into that book and my father's Playboy mags and i was so enthralled by the images...they were utterly fascinating...and i was curious to know more about the people who shared their bodies with the world...

what about your origins of sexual curiosity?...

Yes, Playboy was one of my avenues into the world of sexuality--the world of appreciating the beauty of the nude female, and wanting to partake in that beauty.

It could be that the "early sexual experience" you chose not to detail fascinated you because it was not fulfilled, and propelled you to learn more. Or perhaps your sex drive would have surfaced without outside stimulus.

But why worry about it? Just enjoy your sexuality with one or more like-minded persons.

great post CG... I have often drifted back down memory lane and explained some of my early interests..I think our early experiences are what makes us what we are today.

@bdenied - sometimes i think it is what we DONT experience that also make us what we are today, wouldnt you agree?

FOr me it was my older sisters girlfriends. Even before I knew what it was, being around them just made me feel good in a funny way.

@mnwhr - men who truly love women seem to have had similar experiences, from what i can gather...

I remember being young (don't remember exactly what age, but I know i was under 10) and my brother and I found my dad's playboys and a book of sex positions. it made me curious and aroused and I often would sneak them into my room to look at and be amazed at how my body reacted. I had no idea what to do about it, but after a while I realized how much I enjoyed touching and stroking it. I didn't actually climax until some years later, but by then had read everything I could find about sex. LOL
