Discovering Your Sexuality Through Hairy Gay Men


Remember that age when you started discovering your sexuality?

That awkward, dreadful time when you didn't understand why your male friends suddnely felt the urge to show you their penises while you were trying to reenact "X-files" episodes in the basement of your house, or why you got that funny feeling when you climbed the rope in gym?
When classmates started throwing around the words "pink", "taco", "tossing" and "salad" and you still thought they were talking about food, and your class president got detention for receiving something called a "blow job" on the 8th grade school trip to D.C.?

Then there you were. Clueless and wearing a sports bra. Fantisizing over a picture of a shirtless Elton John from 1972 hanging above your bed.

I wish I could say it was 1972 when I would gawk at this picture. That would make a little more sense.

I guess?

However, it was 1997. While all my friends carried pictures of Leonardo DiCaprio and Gavin Rossdale in their text books, I licked my lips over a twenty-five year old image of pudgy, gay piano-player.

We all know what Elton John looks like, but I'm going to paint you a portrait anyways. Here was a picture of quite possibly one of the most flamboyantly gay performers in history of the world with a pasty, doughy body covered in what looks like bear fur, standing in his shoe closet, wearing glittery high waisted pants with suspenders and no shirt. He had a shit-eating grinning on his face as he showed off his favorite pair of bejeweled platform shoes.

I was transfixed. At thirteen years old, I thought this was what a real heterosexual man was like.

I have mostly likely sealed my fate by marrying a closeted homosexual who enjoys collecting shoes and Bedazzling his clothing.

Anyways, I just tried Googling "shirtless Elton John" and "Elton John with no shirt", but I'm guessing that's not a popular search item. In fact, the only images that come up are pictures of people one should normally lust after like, Hugh Jackman and Zac Efron.

...Gosh, I really wish I had that picture right now...

I never liked Elton John. Still don't, as matter of fact. I was drooling over Tom Cruise back then. And right now I hate him...LOL

My first crush, as I remember it, was Justin from The Secret of Nimh. I just googled "justin secret of nimh" and the first page that came up disturbed me a great deal. It looked innocent enough at first but I'm pretty sure its intended audience is rat cartoon fetishists.

Let me retract. Ahem, my first crush was on uncle Jesse from Full House.

I discovered my sexuality BECAUSE I always thought men were all too hairy, and at least a little gay...ever watched a contact sport?!?

that is some funny stuff! who knows what makes us lust after the people we did/do. lately i keep getting crushes on red-heads. being that i am also a (fake) red-head this probably confirms that i am highly narcissistic or something. which sucks. but red-hair does not.

I thought Elton John was awesome back in the day and I still do now. I, however, didn't fantasize about him. I do have a friend that used to fantasize about Freddie Mercury when she was in middle school though.

Elton is a genius. You know it when you can connect to his songs at a tender age knowing nothing about "love"
He's like Hendrix in Rock and Roll and Kurt Cobain in Seattle.

...Freddie Mercury... mmm, drool-inducing, even with bad teeth and AID's...

@Johana- Well Elton John never liked you! ;)
Haha. I definitely don't like Elton John NOW.

@Tocalabocina- I think Uncle Jesse titillated every young girl's never region. I was at a dinner with him once, right after his wife left him. He looked like Charles Manson. Not sexy.

@Angie- Ha. After I read your comment, I was like, "Maybe I shouldn't have written that..."

@The Eternal Worrier- Such a great song and GREAT album! GYBR still is one of the best.

@Rachel- Thanks for comment. I'm following now! :)

@Seductress- Thanks for finding me! Glad I found you too!

@Sophie- I kind of want to watch a contact sport right now....

@Steff- Hahaha....love it! I always wish I could find a man like me... ;)

@Melissa- I think your friend and I would have been best friends.

@Zachary- Elton's earlier stuff ('70-'74) was near perfect. Can't beat it to this day.

Nah I didn't mean it like that, I just meant it's weird how obviously it's a shared experience that is not often discussed. haha ok I'll shut up now.

If only you knew the dirty weird little crushy secrets I've got in my closet... thinking Elton John is sexy would be the least of your worries. :)

I think one of my first big crushes
was on Norman Bates in psycho;

Lou Reed;

Jeff Mangum;

Every character on Freaks and Geeks

Who are those douchebags we're supposed to like again, love?

I've never liked boy bands or people I'm SUPPOSED to like. While my friends were swooning over Kurt Cameron, I had a crush on Warren Beatty of all people. I was kind of obsessed with the movie "Dick Tracy". No one understood. Looking back, my 13 year old self kind of creeps me out!
