    I remember the night and the location -- but not the exact year -- so I can only narrow it down to my early to mid-20's.
    Probably about 6 or 8

    It's an uncomfortable thought but our sexuality is probably way more conditioned than we are aware of.

    CS Lewis wrote publically about the nearly universal homosexuality at British birding schools. Where sleight boys would compete for the affections of the most popular rapist in school.

    I'd imagine that was the 'make or break' moment for everyone in the room.
    Hell, in that case, I knew it in day camp at age 6 or 7.

    I didn't want anyone looking at my junk before pool.

    Yea, I apparently was the first guy to go through puberty and I hated the showers because I was the only one with hair down there. Is that even what puberty is? I don't know.

    Well science thinks it has managed to define it.

    I have been hetero my whole life. I can't recall a time I wasn't. This is also true as to GLBT people I grew up with; they were gay as babies, as toddlers, as schoolchildren. Etc.

    Well, they likely wouldn't have realized it as babies or toddlers.

    Yea I agree.

    There comes that point when you say, "damn, I want some of that", whether gay or straight.

    Around fifth grade. I was at a 4H summer camp, and there was a girl attending the same week who I found phenomenally attractive. I didn't know her. Never spoke with her. I doubt I ever spoke with anyone who knew her. I never knew her name. But I saw her around camp at least two or three times every day, and those were often the highlights of my day.
    Thanks from Madeline
