I wasn't having sex with other kids or even really masturbating at a young age, but I remember pretending to have sex with Han Solo (ohhhh, Han Solo ) when I was under the age of 12.

I was always aware of my sexuality. It's perfectly normal for young kids to masturbate and have thoughts about sex at very young ages.

I didn't do anything sexual with my peers until I was much older. I'm shy, and would probably be considered a "later bloomer" by a lot of folks.

SAME, except I'm fairly certain I was humping pillows around 3-4.

I knew I was bisexual when I was a little kid, like 5 or so, but I didn't know what it was! It wasn't sexual then, obviously, I just had crushes on girls and boys. I've evolved a LOT since then and I'm more into girls, and I've had my phases and experimentations as 'lesbian' and 'straight', but all in all I think I still identify as pretty even bisexual.

Mr. Bignuf here. I had a girl in the neighborhood. She was a whopping 14 and schooled my little, scrawny 12 year old self, on the basics. It was awesome. I dream of her "education" still. Didn't go too far, but was still amazing.

Of course you can't remember, silly. You were a "COMATOSE" kitty!!!! Sorry. I love your posts, and KNOW you have a sense of humor. Couldn't resist. Just that kind of morning.

It's hard to say, looking back I had some really odd thoughts that were my weird ideas about sex. I think those started before 12, maybe as young as 7. I got closer to real fantasies after 12. I also remember thinking god would punish me for it when I was really young, so I guess some part of me realized what it was at the time.

I realized I wasn't straight around 13 or 14, but it took me a LOT longer to realize I was bi/pansexual. I'm really surprised at all the people that said they figured it out in the teenage years, since I know a lot of people that flip-flopped or changed their mine all throughout their teenage years. I'm still not sure that I have it totally figured out, either.

I had crushes on girls and boys as far back as I can remember, and long before those crushes were at all sexual. I remember reading something in National Geographic wheni was maybe 6 or 7 about some country or another having legalized same sex marriage and it made me happy thinking that it could be an option. Then I spent a good while between maybe 9 and 14 going out of my way to try and ignore and deny that I liked girls until I finally just accepted it and embraced it. Having a few friends who were also bi helped a lot.

I was somewhere around 13-14 when I discovered that being attracted to people who aren't male is legitimate and common, so that's when I started taking that part of me seriously.

Late. I was / thought I was asexual for years. I legitimately saw porn and didn't get what the big deal was for the longest time.

Kind of always new. My first crush was on a girl. I did identify as lesbian for a while, but that was mostly because the culture surrounding me didn't really recognize anything but 'straight' or 'gay'.

like around eleven, id always had crushed on girls but it didnt occur to me what that meant until someone in my family came out (to a very bad reception of the news sadly)

I was 20. I never really knew how to come to terms with it before it was just staring me in the face.
