I think when I started masturbating and imagining boys was when it started for me around 11-12yo .Then i had crushes in highschool but i ddnt really wanted to “be” with males. I was just fasinated by masculinity. Then i was fully into it by like 25(?) when i started orgaziming exclusively to the sexual thought of men who also thought of men sexually.

I live in a conservative & religious society. Evethough homosexuality is not illegal here, it is not acceptable.
I knew I liked boys since the first time developed I interests in romantic/sexual relationship.

People from my childhood always told me that I was girly. But I grew up adoring masculine values, and turned into the average men trying to be masculine without being "macho". People in my circles came to the conclusion that I'm gay because I don't date girls nor show any interest in them. I've not came out to any of them. And I don't really get along with girls (not really the reason but the last time I did, a couple of classmates threatened to beat me up out of jealousy).

I thought homosexuality was the norm and that the majority were faking their desire for people of the opposite sex. Sometimes I still do think that straight men are just acting straight because of society pressure.

I had to go with 18, but I want to clarify. I was attracted to boys from about the age of five. I had a crush on a kid in my kindergarten class. I then had a major crush on two boys around the age of twelve. One was a boy who transferred to my school in 6th grade, the other was my next door neighbor. However, I did not consciously accept that I was gay until much later. It wasn't until I was around the age of 18 and was exposed to the son of my parents friends, who was openly gay, and had a boyfriend. I was introduced to them both and through them I came to understand what it all meant, and realize that despite what I was raised to believe as a person indoctrinated in the cult of the Baptist church, that it was okay to be gay, and that my feelings and urges were completely natural.
