At the end of middle school I was not exactly a popular kid. I was nice, and the popular kids didn't hate me or pick on me at all. But I was also quiet. I read a lot. By which I mean: I was never not reading. I would sit in class while my teachers were talking with my book under my desk, not paying any attention. I got in trouble for it a few times, but my grades didn't fall so there was no way they could prove to me that reading in class was bad. I didn't talk much, choosing to watch other people instead. And while I did date girls, I was never part of a power couple, one of the couples that everybody knew about.
But by the time I left high school, I was popular. I was going to the popular kid parties (though, honestly, I didn't drink much, never had a taste for beer), chatting with the popular kids in the hall, and fucking the popular girls. I didn't view myself as one of the popular kids, but I was around them enough that people knew who I was. How did I make the shift?
It wasn't by simply hanging out with jocks until they accepted me or any other after school special bullshit. Even when I had an older jock boyfriend (though we were just "hanging out" as far as anyone but us knew) I wasn't popular.
What made me popular was cunnilingus. Bare with me, I'll explain.
My Sophomore year of high school I was at a party that was supposedly for the swim team, but was really just an excuse for a party. This one somewhat slutty girl I knew was there and she had just recently gone through a public break-up with her boyfriend, as all power couples do. She was on the rebound, but not finding any action. Some mixture of attraction to me and alcohol convinced her it would be a good idea to take me to one of the rooms upstairs for a little fun.
What she didn't know was that I knew how to have sex. I was between her legs, eating her out, and she came, pulling my hair. I hadn't even needed to work her over for very long. Most guys in high school know how to fuck from porn and basic demonstrations in health class. I had been having sex for a while at that point and knew how to pleasure my partner. I was giving this girl something she had needed for a long time, but never received from her boyfriends: sexual attention.
Word soon got around to other girls that I liked to give oral sex. And it was true, still is true. On a man or a woman, I love to give oral sex. I don't really have an explination why. It may sound strange, but I actually recieve pleasure from tonguing labia while I tickle a clit until the woman is thrashing in the sheets. I love sucking guys off until they are shooting their loads down my throat. Knowing that I am the reason they are feeling that pleasure makes me harder and more ready to fuck when I finish.
So your life lesson for the day is this: Oral sex will boost your popularity. So get good at it. If you enjoy giving oral sex, then you will never have trouble finding a partner.
