While our hands were busy celebrating ourselves, this showed up in my inbox:
"I’m one of the straight dudes who follows. That I’d write to ask a question when I never leave comments may seem unfair, so I’ll try to make this short. It wasn’t until after the cancellation deadline that I realized I’d booked me and a buddy on a clothing-optional cruise. My buddy was okay with it and by the time we boarded he’d convinced me I had nothing to worry about.
So, day 2 we’re in our shared stateroom (one bed) and napping. I’m having this wild dream that I’ve got this enormous erection and someone is giving me the handjob of my life. As with most wet dreams, I wake up just as I’m shooting my wad. I opened my eyes and my friend was kneeling between my legs, stroking my dick. After the first spurt, he dove down and swallowed every drop. When it was over, he smiled and went into the head sporting a woody.
His boner was gone when he came back into the room and apologized, but he said "something just came over" him. He hoped it didn’t freak me out. I told him it was okay. Actually it was fantastic.But, my question to you is this: Am I a total asshat for not reciprocating?"
Hold on a minute.... You and your buddy - who both self-identify as straight - went on a clothing optional cruise and shared a bed in a stateroom,
and you're wondering why he stroked you off?
First of all, being straight has nothing to do with it. Lots of men enjoy mutual masturbation - obviously he is one of them.
But, anyway, he sees his BFF with a boner and decides (maybe) to say "Thank you" for taking him on a cruise.
Are you a total asshat? Well, there are no hard and fast rules for this situation. But, it would've been the nice thing to do at some point during the rest of the cruise. Nobody is saying you had to go down on him when he busted his load; that he did it for you was just icing on your cake.
I'm going to suggest you even the score the next time you find yourself in a decent situation - you know, watching the game or something. Reach out and give his bulge a squeeze, or make a verbal observation about it. Something tells me he'd be down with some mutual stroking.
Hey, you never know, you might get lucky. He might suck you off again.
What do you think, was he a total asshat for not returning the favor?
