I learned all about sex as a young teenager in dark movie theatres.
This one hits it on the head, so to speak. The Varsity Theater, near the Marquette campus in Milwaukee, was a place that showed art films, and as a high school pseudo-intellectual back in the mid-60's, I learned a lot about my sexuality from generous college students.
I made some good friends from those encounters; my parents never knew.
I always knew I was gay, and was quite comfortable in those surroundings, even though I was a dumb high school kid.
I miss those days. Life was much simpler then...
