    Decided to go swinging today to see if there were any takers.

    Quickly found my first. She got me good. After the first tug and then three quick jerks from her and I was done for. I lasted about 10, maybe 15 seconds tops. My line went limp and off she went.

    I'll always remember my first.

    Lost your virginity? So, are you bragging or complaining?

    Nothing to complain about. I'm getting closer.

    Sounds to me like there was a bit too much focus on you. Next time, maybe try thinking about her needs first. Might last a bit longer.:D

    I have no clue what her needs are. I fed her well with a fine muddler minnow. Beyond that I was a lost cause.

    Don't worry. I've never fared any better.

    Nice! It sounds like your heart had to be racing for the time she was on. I hate the feeling of them letting go just before the end ;)

    Maybe next time, try some soft music. Just a thought.


    Congrats Golfman!
