Loved and in love

Very brief description of a case of sexual contact between a 14 year old boy and a stranger.

Taken from the collection Positive Memories, compiled by T. Rivas.

Case mentioned by Bruce Rind, in the Appendix of his article Gay and Bisexual Adolescent Boys’ Sexual Experiences With Men: An Empirical Examination of Psychological Correlates in a Nonclinical Sample in Archives of Sexual Behavior, Vol. 30, No.4, 2001.

This case was directly obtained by Rind from R.C. Savin-Williams.


It was with a stranger; he initiated it; it involved oral and mutual masturbation, we did it ten more times. I was excited, was loved and in love, got affection, but was not prepared for sex [in this phase]. It was not so l much that I wanted his affection; I was attracted to him. This relationship lasted a week; then three months later we met again and we were sexual.
