Day 4: Any early experiences that, in retrospect, hint at your kinks?
I was such a shy, withdrawn teenager. All I thought about was my horse & reading. And boys, but less so. Kink would have been right outta there.
There were two things that might have indicated where my future interests would lie, however. One I don’t consider “kink” but definitely is my sexuality, the other is definitely kink, but it’s hard for me to say that any 14 year old that read what I did wouldn’t become aroused…
I lived in a small mountain town with my mother and stepfather and spent summers with my father in Berkeley, CA. One summer, when I was about 14, and just becoming aware of myself as a sexual being, I was in a park near my dad’s apartment. I saw two women kissing there, and holding hands, and just acting like a normal couple. I watched them, surreptitiously, for a long time. I was deeply aroused, and also ashamed by that arousal. But I was also something else…something I can’t really name. It was the first time I had ever considered women loving each other, both sexually and romantically. It was an eye–and heart–opening moment for me.
Later that week I looked up in an alternative paper where the local Gay/Lesbian Center was, and I walked by it several times that summer, but never worked up the nerve to go in.
The second memory has to do more directly with kink. I found a copy of Nancy Friday’s My Secret Garden, in which women told their sexual fantasies. The ones I remember most? The enema and alien sex ones. LOL But I remember paging through the book to get to the kinky ones, in whatever form.

There’s also someone new doing the 30 Days, and though she hasn’t gotten to Day 4 yet, I wanted to point out her blog, because it’s lots of fun (and okay, hot and sexy too…):
