Then our, very smart buddy responded, "Why wait?"
There are so many men who fear those thoughts of stroking one out with a buddy or two, who push back and deny the activity because they don't want to be labeled. Or fear the reaction of family as did one Faithful Reader who sent an email on the subject.
I've said my wife knew of my bisexuality before we were married. She wasn't surprised to learn of the Jack Off Group. Her annoyance stemmed from not being told when I was going. She asked me what I thought was a very strange question about the intimacy of it. My personal opinion: the deep, longing, loving kiss that accompanies sexual activity, that's true intimacy.
She was surprised to find that the guys in the group didn't kiss - ever. Because, I explained, it wasn't emotional, it wasn't intimate. It was a group of men - 95% of them straight, married men with families - who simply enjoyed the freedom to share a common activity without shame, without fear.
Yes, we grabbed onto one another's cocks - eagerly so at times.
But there were no emotional attachments being formed.
It was just ... fun.
So, getting naked and stroking one out with your buddies has nothing to do with intimacy. It's sharing the bond of manhood.
What constitutes intimacy for you?
Would you - or did you - wait to follow through?
