At what age did you become conscious your same sex attraction? What age did you accept you weren't straight? Me I've always been attracted to boys in some way but when I was 11 I first started to notice boys and the fact I really liked it. I remember one day at a park some boys were running around in their shorts and nothing else, barefooted,bare chested and their wet shorts clung to their wet bodies. It turned me on, I felt embarrassed, I felt this heat come over me. A few years of denial despite my obvious attraction to boys, despite my viewing gay websites I finally began admitting to myself last year.
