Part of the ‘Butt Monkey’ series of stories by Robert Furlong
Debbie turned out to be very nice. A bit giggly, perhaps, but that could be put down to the nervousness of being on a first date. She probably thought me too quiet for the same reason.
We’d got on well – better than I’d dared to hope – and I’d suggested that we could meet up again at the weekend. However, Debbie was not one to rush things, perhaps on account of bad experiences in the past, and so she’d asked if we could leave it a week or so. I’d taken that as an indication that things hadn’t gone so well for her and had smiled and said I’d just wait for her to e-mail me, bracing myself to never hear from her again.
However, she’d assured me that she definitely did want to see me again but that things were, as she’d put it, ‘complex’ for her right now. So we’d agreed to meet up again whenever she was ready.
We didn’t kiss – given what my lips had been nuzzling into just hours earlier, it didn’t seem appropriate to make a move on her – but there was a tangible chemistry between us which had provoked several reactions beneath my side of the table. It was a good thing I was wearing the new pair of trousers I’d bought: the extra couple of inches around the crotch had come in very handy.
On the way home, I couldn’t stop myself from imagining the two of us as a couple: going out together, holding hands, making love and arranging holidays. All the normal things which I so missed about having a woman in my life. I tried not to let our brief faltering date blossom into a lifelong relationship in my mind, but the night had gone well and I couldn’t help but speculate on what might develop between us.
I wondered if Jake would like her – that could be a major stumbling block – and whether he would accept her as my girlfriend, especially now that he had discovered my fascination for rimming other men. If I started meeting men for sex, would it be possible to have a relationship with Debbie at the same time? Should I be honest with her about my fetish, and if I was would she accept it as part of my sexuality? Could I even explain it to her in a way that she would understand since I could hardly figure it out myself?
Such questions were impossible to answer, of course, but that didn’t stop them tangling themselves up in knots in my mind as I drove back into town.
As I turned left onto Farndon Road to pick Jake up from his friend’s house, it occurred to me that if I were now to suggest another trip to see a football game with Simon and his dad, Jake would immediately recognise that my primary motivation for doing so was sexual. He was a bright lad and he’d probably already figured out that more had happened in the hotel between Guy and me than I’d admitted to.
Having said that, he had other friends who he might want to go and watch a match with and whose dads might be up for an overnight stopover. His friend Jayden had quite a nice-looking dad – he was called Leon and he was tall and quite academic-looking, mainly on account of his small, wire-framed round glasses. He had short, fair-coloured curly hair which was starting to thin a bit on top.
He seemed a quiet guy – I seemed to remember he worked in a bank or a building society – and looked like he’d be a bit shy about sharing a hotel room with a stranger. But quiet guys had hidden depths (hadn’t Guy said something like that?) and if I got him drunk enough, I reckoned I could steer things in the direction of some arse-on-face action. He’d be reluctant at first – I guess most guys would be – but his intrigue about having someone’s tongue probing such an unlikely place would get the better of him. I’d soon have him squirming with pleasure and masturbating himself to the feel of me licking the blond wiry hairs around his tight little hole. I might even persuade him to have a try of rimming me or, if he found he liked the sensation of having my tongue penetrating him, to let me go the whole way and butt-fuck him as he bent over the bed. Or maybe we could –
Jesus – what was I thinking of!?
I hardly knew this guy and I was fantasizing about setting things up so I could have sex with him. I suddenly felt like some kind of sexual monster for allowing myself to casually consider getting a stranger drunk so I could proposition him.
Was I planning to work my way through all of Jake’s friends’ fathers? Did I really want to get a reputation for myself as someone who preyed on other men – a weirdo with a literal taste for men’s arses – on the pretence of an innocent-sounding stopover en route to a football match?
I pulled into the road in front of Dan’s parents’ house and sounded my horn a couple of time. After a few minutes, Jake appeared at the front door, said his thanks and goodbyes and then came down the drive to get in the passenger side.
“So how was it?” he asked.
I smiled. “It was good. She was nice. I think there might be hope…”
He smiled back. “Nice one. So when do I get to meet her?”
I reversed into Dan’s parents’ drive so that I could turn the car around. “Probably not for a while. We don’t want to rush things – or rather, she doesn’t – so she’s asked if we can take it slow to start off with.”
“Are you sure that’s not a ‘thanks, but no thanks’?”
I chuckled. “Yeah, I’m sure. I’m guessing she’s had some bad experiences with other guys and she doesn’t want a repeat.”
As we set off, Jake asked, “And is she heading for a repeat with you, dad?”
I glanced over at him, surprised by his frankness, but his face was impassive in the orange glow of the passing sodium lights. I asked, knowing full well, “What do you mean?”
“The stuff we talked about last week. What happens when she finds out that you also have a boyfriend?”
Trying to hide the irritation from my voice, I said, “I’m not going to have a boyfriend, Jake. I told you: I’m not gay.”
“You said you wanted to try doing the things in those pictures with another man. Won’t that be like having a boyfriend? Kind of?”
Slowing the car down as we approached the traffic lights on the way out of the estate, I shook my head. “It’d just be a man who enjoys doing the same stuff as I do. We’d simply share a common interest. Like tennis buddies, or something.”
Jake snorted; I couldn’t decide whether to express derision or amusement. “There’s a bit more to it than that, dad. I mean, you must have a type of guy you’re attracted to…”
“Actually, that’s a good point. I don’t think I do.”
At that moment it occurred to me that I didn’t really care what my male sexual partner looked like or what his personality might be like. With women, there are particular traits and characteristics which I find more attractive than others, although I’ve rarely been lucky enough to hook up with anyone who conforms at all closely to my ideal type.
Jake looked over at me, perhaps a little intrigued. “So it wouldn’t matter who it was, as long as he liked doing the same stuff that you like?”
I nodded, watching the lights flick through amber to green and releasing the handbrake to set off again. “I haven’t really thought about it, but I guess it could be pretty much anyone, as long as they weren’t too old or too young. I wouldn’t really care, to be honest, Jake.”
“But you obviously liked the look of Mr Purves…?”
My face flushed a little at the memory of Jake’s sneaky trick. I wondered if he’d heard me beating off in bed in the belief that I might be about to spend some time with my face in his Physics teacher’s butt-crack.
“I’d have been just as interested in any bloke you’d chosen, Jake. Or anyone who happened to be into… you know… the stuff I like.”
“Someone like Simon’s dad?”
I looked across at him. He was staring straight ahead but his face said it all. As I’d suspected, he knew the score about what had happened with Guy.
“Exactly,” I said softly. “Someone like Simon’s dad.”
“That’s what you guys were doing that night, wasn’t it? All that ‘give it to me’ stuff he was shouting… it was your tongue making him do that…?”
I nodded, feeling intensely uncomfortable to be questioned in this way, but aware that it was time for some honesty between us. Whatever metaphorical journey I was on, Jake was determined to accompany me whether I liked it or not.
“I’m sorry you heard it, Jake. We just… well… we sort of lost control.”
“But didn’t it stink? Didn’t it taste… you know… shitty?”
“Actually, no. If it had I’d have been disgusted – that has no appeal for me. The taste and smell was more… kind of earthy and musky. Just having my face there felt… well –”
I pulled into our street, grateful that this conversation would be over shortly.
I said, “Good doesn’t really cover it. That night… with Guy… was when I realised how incredible it felt.”
He let out a short laugh which seemed somewhat inappropriate. “Yeah… the way you guys were shaking the bed! It was hammering against the wall!”
I smiled though I didn’t feel at all amused.
As I pulled into our drive, he asked, “So why don’t the two of you hook up again? We could go to another match or you could invite him over or something?”
“I dunno, Jake. It kind of happened by accident that night.”
He gave another short laugh and was about to say something but I went on, “Don’t ask how, but it just did. No doubt the bottle of whisky helped. I know what you’re saying and I appreciate the way you’re handling this, but Guy might think it was weird if I… you know… made moves on him.”
I switched off the engine.
He said, “There’d be no harm in trying. He can only say no.”
I turned to him and smiled. “Why are you so keen to set me up with Simon’s dad?”
“I just think you could end up getting yourself into trouble trying to find men who like the stuff you do.”
I must have flinched at how close Jake had come to reading my thoughts from earlier that day.
He looked over at my reaction and, seeming to think that I hadn’t caught his drift, expounded, “What I mean is, how are you going to go about finding someone?”
“I don’t really know,” I shrugged, feeling stupid.
“At least with Simon’s dad, it’s someone you know and it’s someone who definitely isn’t going to want to get into a relationship with another man. I mean,” he said, laughing, “of everyone you know, Guy would be the least likely to end up being some bloke’s boyfriend.”
He opened the car door. “So I figure he’d be your safest choice.”
I got out of the car after him, marvelling at his maturity and feeling rather touched by his protectiveness towards me. If only he knew how reckless I’d been that afternoon, he’d probably be shocked to discover how justified his concerns were.
He opened the front door with his key and threw me a rather sweet smile as we went into the house.
That night, as I gently masturbated in bed before sleeping, I was drawn to stretch my face downwards and reach my tongue out to lick the head of my penis while my foreskin was sliding back and forth across it. It wasn’t something I did often – I wasn’t too keen on the warm, wet sensation of my tongue – but after meeting Debbie and faced with the prospect of a second date, I wanted something a bit out of the ordinary from my regular evening wank.
So as my right hand developed a rhythm along the shaft of my cock and my left slowly probed the sticky hole between my legs, I stooped down and lapped at my precum, enjoying its sharp, salty taste. As it oozed from my slit, I licked it up like a melting ice-cream, sniffing as I did so at the strong sexual odour from my cock and balls and the harsher, powerfully distinct, scent from my finger teasing my hot, moist arsehole.
I wasn’t sure why, but it felt good tonight to lick myself as the stroking of my hand steadily increased. It was a pity I didn’t enjoy the feel of having a mouth on my cock: on a night like this, I would no doubt otherwise hungrily suck at the head of my erection as a special treat.
As my outstretched middle finger slid into my tight ring and the biting tang from it made my cock grow harder, I became aware of a second rhythm and paused momentarily to listen. It was Jake in the next room to me, enjoying his own late night ministrations. His rhythm was faster than mine – as with all things, his youth made him far less patient – and the thudding of his bed against the adjoining wall made it clear he was being much rougher with himself.
I smiled as I resumed my more sedate pumping. We both knew what the other was doing and would, perhaps, enjoy our own exertions a little more because of it. It amused me how surprised Jake would probably be if he could see how much more elaborate my own technique was: he would have no idea that his dad was busy stroking himself in time to a finger sliding in and out of his butt-crack and a tongue licking the dribble from his cock-head.
I’ve occasionally found myself curious as to whether Jake has inherited my rather specialised ability and is himself able to hunch forwards and self-fellate. From what I know of my son’s erection – having seen it tenting his boxer shorts far more times than I would have liked over the years – I’m quite sure it’s long enough for him to reach with his mouth, and he’s certainly athletic enough to be able to flex his back that far.
One morning, a year or two earlier, I’d walked into his bedroom to find him stooped beneath his duvet in a very odd position: his bare bum sticking out from the covers with him underneath bent double – a gentle pulsing of rhythm and movement in time with a curious wet panting sound. I’d started making some quip about not really wanting to see my son’s brown eye winking up at me first thing in the morning but had stopped mid-sentence when it had dawned on me, from his blushes and fluster as he struggled to sit up, that I might have just walked in on my son in the middle of him sucking himself off. He’d stayed put in the bed while I opened his curtains, flushing scarlet and catching his breath as he stooped beneath his duvet with his knees up in front of him and strings of spit and drool spattered around his lips.
As I write this I find myself wondering if my son had been about to climax when I’d walked into his bedroom and was in the habit of using his mouth to catch his outpouring of semen to avoid having to clean up his own mess. It would be typical of Jake to be so lazy that he couldn’t be bothered to wipe himself off after masturbating, but would instead choose to hunch down and gulp down his own seed as it squirted from his slit just to avoid going to the effort of pulling a few tissues from a box.
I’ve always felt, though, that to ask him directly about his sexual capabilities, or even to allude to such a shared gift, would be over-stepping a fundamental father-son boundary. Perhaps if the issue had arisen naturally in conversation (I’m not sure how it would) I might have ventured a joking query in that direction; perhaps it’s fortunate that it never has.
As a teenager in my bedroom at home, I had discovered that I could lick my own cock-head – and even suck it if I so desired – very soon after puberty had kicked in and had such a profound effect on my, until then, blissfully unremarkable genitals.
I’d started off, like most boys probably do, by tentatively touching the erections which were beginning to plague me as I tried to get off to sleep at night. Like scratching a persistent itch, fondling my stiffened organ through my pyjamas felt pleasantly satisfying, and I was compelled to rub it more quickly and more firmly each night until my exertions made me sleepy. Every night seemed to feel better than the last and soon I was panting and sweating as I squeezed and caressed my throbbing hard-on through my pyjamas, wondering why it felt so good to touch it like I was and hoping desperately that this wasn’t the thing my mother said nasty boys do and which you could be sent to Hell for.
Within a few nights, I had my cock out of my pyjama fly and was stroking the back of it with my outstretched fingers, marvelling at how good it felt and how sexy it made the air under my bedclothes smell. It felt longer and thicker every night I played with it: I’m sure that it couldn’t really have grown in twenty-four hour spurts, but perhaps my increasing excitement was making it swell a bit bigger each night.
As the evenings wore on, I rubbed myself faster and faster, all the time growing more and more tired from my exertions, and then would gradually nod off, still with my hand on its softening length and no doubt with a smile firmly etched on my face.
In the morning I’d tell myself that I’d simply been tending to a soreness, the way one rubs a bruised knee. My penis was somehow inflamed, that was all. Rubbing it felt good because it was soothing, not because I was doing anything wrong to myself. Whatever my mother was referring to when she talked darkly about ‘self-abuse’ and whatever my brother was scornful about when he accused me of ‘wanking’, neither could possibly mean this.
And then one night, perhaps a week or so later, I tried something new. Without any kind of premeditation and purely on a whim, I wrapped my fingers and thumb around the hot shaft of my excitement and started sliding my foreskin up and down the length of it, slowly at first to see how it would feel and then faster and with more confidence as my pleasure intensified. I gasped at the exquisite sensations which now flooded over me from my sensitive cock-head: the tight ring of my foreskin opening and closing like a fish’s mouth as I slid it back and forth across it, and my thumb rubbing in a quickening rhythm against the thickened ridge at its swollen base.
I gripped myself more firmly and, throwing my head back against my pillow in pleasure, started jerking my foreskin far more roughly and vigorously than I had when I’d been content simply to stroke the shaft of it with my fingers.
My whole bed was probably shaking – the frantic creaking of its springs probably telling the whole house that its youngest son was now taking the first of his many steps towards manhood – but I was too immersed in my own self-gratification to care. I beat myself faster and faster, no longer able to tell myself that I was simply massaging an inflammation.
I remember being fully aware, from the shape of my hand as it gripped my cock and the movement my wrist was making up and down it, what it was I was doing. I’d seen my brother make similar movements against the front of his trousers when he was ridiculing me for being a ‘wanker’. He’d make a gripping gesture with his hand like mine was now and beat his wrist up and down against his crotch. I’d never fully understood the movement – why was he beating a rod of air between his fingers and thumb? – but, lying there that night making the same rapid motion up and down my cock, his intended meaning was unequivocally clear.
Such thoughts didn’t serve to slow my rhythm – not one iota – but rather, if anything, spurred me on.
“Robert’s a wanker!” my brother would taunt me. And here I was, lying hot and breathless in my bed, greatly enjoying proving him right! I really was a wanker – and Lord, did it feel good!
I don’t remember how long it took me to climax that first night I discovered how thrilling it felt to jerk my foreskin up and down my cock, but I’m sure it couldn’t have been more than a couple of minutes. I remember lifting the bed sheets with my free hand and marvelling at the sharp, sweaty scent of my cock as I tugged it. The air was thick with what seemed like an electrifyingly smell – oozing with my own sex and pheromones – and I inhaled it as deeply as I could, relishing every molecule of it.
My cock seemed to grow to an impossible size, becoming thicker and harder than it ever had with the excitement of what I was doing to it. I felt amazingly manly, as I lay there sniffing my own tantalising sexual odour and listening to the rhythm I was making as I rapidly pumped at my organ with which felt implausibly enlarged in my fist.
