Moment of Zen: Alone Time

20131129-201019.jpg

I love being around other people. I’m usually a very social person, that is as long as I know the people I’m with (otherwise, I can be quite shy). But sometimes, and I suspect we are all a little like this, I enjoy being alone. Yes, one of my most fervent wishes is to find a man with whom to spend the rest of my life, but I will still most likely enjoy some alone time. Sometimes, that alone time can be quite wonderful and relaxing. I was enjoying such a moment of alone time the other day, when I was inspired to write this post. This may be a bit more risqué than my usual “Moment of Zen,” but since it’s my birthday today, I decided to indulge myself in a more seductive moment.

Now this would certainly be better with some one else, but that’s another scenario. I was lying in a bubble bath, when this began to consume my thoughts, but it could have also, just as easily, been while lying lazily in bed. It’s that moment when you are alone. It may be peacefully quiet, or soft music could be playing. It really doesn’t matter, but it is whatever gets you in your most relaxed state. For me, I was taking a bubble bath, something I love, but rarely do.

I began to think of a certain beautiful young man, and since I was naked, my hand drifted to my penis. This was not a moment that I was intent to bring myself to orgasm, but to merely fondle myself. I began to gently run my fingers around my balls and up my shaft, slowly allowing the blood to rush to the now attentive appendage. I never fully grasped the shaft, but gently used my fingers to stroke my member to its full tumescence. Once fully aroused, I was completely relaxed and began to slowly stroke myself, moving up and down. Occasionally, I would linger around the head, lightly running a finger around, sometimes paying a little more attention to the sensitive underside, before working my way back down. I then took my balls in my hand and gently rolled them around, tugging them lightly before moving back up the shaft.

On lazy days, this is one of my favorite things to do, whether I’m slick with soap in the bath or using some lubricant while lying in bed. It’s a great way to relax. Often, when lying in bed at night, especially after a tiring day, I love to do this. When I’m really tired, I know I don’t want to have to deal with the clean-up after orgasm, so this is a great way to release tension. Just a teasingly slow solo activity that lulls me to sleep. When I do this at night before I fall asleep, I usually dream peacefully of carnal pleasures and awaken with that glorious male event known as morning wood. Taking care of that to a climax is a wonderful way to wake up and get your day started. It’s made even better by the more intense orgasm that results from the leisurely, anticipatory, but non-climactic events of the previous night.

About Joe

I began my life in the South and for five years lived as a closeted teacher, but am now making a new life for myself as an oral historian in New England. I think my life will work out the way it was always meant to be. That doesn't mean there won't be ups and downs; that's all part of life. It means I just have to be patient. I feel like October 7, 2015 is my new birthday. It's a beginning filled with great hope. It's a second chance to live my life…not anyone else's. My profile picture is "David and Me," 2001 painting by artist Steve Walker. It happens to be one of my favorite modern gay art pieces. View all posts by Joe
