Several gay and bisexual men I know say they got turned on to gay sex in the military. One of my friends “Wesley” told me this is what happened to him:
After he graduated high school and went to college Wesley decided to enlist in the Army instead of the Air Force like his Dad. Which pissed off his father no end.
“Wow, you breaking the tradition son. I should make you pay back all that money I spent on college.”
“Well Dad I’m grown now and have to live my own life.”
So Wesley went through basic training and headed to Fort Bragg in North Carolina, where superiors liked his good grades and enrolled him in IT training. And they partnered him with “Donovan” so the two could help each other study.
Wesley and Donovan couldn’t be more different. Wesley was a six-foot four black kid from the suburbs of Maryland who liked listening to Go Go Music. Donovan was a shorter, muscular, pale white guy with red hair and freckles from the foothills of West Virginia who liked country music.
However, they soon became friends and hung out all the time. And the attraction between them grew into more than just study buddies.
First Donovan would rub his thigh against Wesley’s when they sat side by side in front of their computers in IT class. Then when they played spades in the barracks they would partner with each other and Donovan would play footsie with Wesley under the table, the other card players unaware of the flirting.
“Why do you keep rubbing up on me man,” Wesley asked.
“Oh shoot Wesley I’m just playing, relax,” Donovan answered. But Donovan didn’t stop doing it.
Wesley ran track for the military and Donovan was quarterback of the base football team.
“Wesley you don’t have good hands but you run fast as greased lightning,” Donovan said. “Why don’t you be a receiver for the team.”
So that gave both of them a chance to work out with each other and shower naked together in the gym. Donovan’s thick white penis and his unruly red pubic hair fascinated Wesley. He grew up around black people and had never seen a white man naked before.
One night they went out drinking and Wesley got tore up. And Donovan invited him to sleep on his couch while he slept in his bedroom.
Later that night Donovan came out of his room, and walked over to Wesley’s lanky body sprawled on his couch, and caressed him. And before you knew it Wesley fully awoke and Donovan unzipped his fly and put his penis into Wesley’s mouth.
Wesley had never had gay sex before. It just happened. Like it was the most natural thing to do.
For a year they would meet and suck each other’s dicks. Donovan loved cramming his mouth with Wesley’s member, which is a true 10 inches and so thick Donovan could barely get his hand around it.
“Being with him was so taboo. The fact we were having gay sex and were of different races and different backgrounds. That is what made it hot,” Wesley said.
The second year Donovan said he wanted to fuck Wesley, and Wesley let him do it. And they both seemed to enjoy it. But after that happened the two seemed to avoid each other for a while — barely making eye contact for a week.
It was like a barrier had been broken. Were they now really gay?
It was easy for them to hide their affair. They both had girlfriends and double dated with their girls. They both played sports. And they were both deep voiced and very masculine, so who would know?
But then Wesley decided he was going to live a gay lifestyle and gave up dating women and Donovan proposed to his girlfriend and got married.
“I left him alone after he got married — I didn’t want to interfere with that,” Wesley said. “Then we both got transferred to different bases — I ended up in Germany.”
“We would write each other but that stopped. The last thing I got from him was a Halloween card back in the 90s. I sometimes wonder what happened to him.”
