This story is about my second experience as Greek passive (an anal bottom). Can you guess who it was with?
Left: Guillem, a Catalan muscle bear in his 40s, with a Kielbasa beneath the belt.
Right; Ramon, a twink of Chinese ancestry, in his 20s, rather on the small side.
My first anal experience was with Fred, my first boyfriend, while in college. And then rarely. if ever. In West Hollywood, Greek was associated with people dying of AIDS, so even with a condom we rarely considered it.
Between 1985 and 1997, I was Greek passive for only 3 guys, and Greek active for 2.
Guillem or Ramon? Read the whole story before trying to guess.
Barcelona, Summer 1994
Lane and I planned to spend only two days in Barcelona, but we ended up spending a week. It turned out to be our favorite city in Spain, and probably in Europe.
Les Rambles, the pedestrian mall in the center of the old city
Sagrada Familia, the unfinished Gaudi church
The Picasso Museum
The best gym with day rates in Europe.
Spanish: Quisiera tragar su salchicha
Catalan: Vull empassar la seva salsitxa
And Sauna Condal, three floors of saunas, steam rooms, mazes, dark rooms, and glory hole rooms. We went twice, the second time on Bear Night, when it was crowded with tall, hairy-chested muscle bears, silver daddies, and Catalan chubbies.
Suddenly I saw an Asian guy sitting alone in the video room: in his 20s, short and slim, with a smooth chest, his penis covered with a towel. I guessed that he was of Chinese ancestry.
Wow! I hadn't even seen an Asian guy since we arrived in Europe two weeks ago, except once at a Chinese restaurant in Madrid. I figured he was a tourist from the U.S. or France, which had a larger Chinese population. Or maybe even from China.
I knew all about cruising Asian guys, from many nights at Mugi in Hollywood.
I approached, sat next to him, and tried out my minimal Mandarin: "Ni hau bu hau?"
He glared at me and said something in Catalan that I didn't understand. So he was a native Spaniard!
He switched to a slow, careful Spanish. "You were speaking Mandarin. My grandparents speak Wu, not Mandarin. They say Nung hau, not Ni hau, or better, Ve'tich va, which means 'have you eaten?"
A linguist! Just my type! "Me llama Boomer, de Toronto." [I always claimed to be Canadian while overseas to avoid getting yelled at.]
"Ramon," he said in a distracted voice, offering his hand to be shaken.
Then he stood, crossed the room, and started working on the nipples of a muscle bear standing in the doorway.
Snubbed? We'll see about that! I walked over, knelt, and went down on the muscle bear's curved Bratwurst, then gradually reached beneath Ramon's towel and fondled him- rather small, though very aroused. I started working on both, as well as I could when one was three times as big as the other.
Soon the Muscle Bear knelt and motioned for us to change positions. I stood and kissed Ramon and fondled his butt, while the Muscle Bear worked on both of us. It didn't take long for me to finish. Then the Muscle Bear wordlessly left.
We looked at each other. That was a little abrupt -- Ramon was still hanging.
"Have you eaten?" he asked with a grin, and pushed me down onto my knees again.
Guillem was a buffed, hairy muscle bear in his 40s, with a long face and a salt-and-pepper beard. One of his hands was in a brace.
We went out for drinks at La Chapelle, a small gay bar crowded with religious artifacts about 8 blocks away.
Ramon told us that he knew only a few words of the Wu language, from his grandparents, who settled in Barcelona after the Communist Revolution of 1949. His parents spoke only Catalan at home, and were not at all interested in their Chinese heritage.
Neither was Ramon. He got annoyed when people assumed he spoke Chinese, or became interested in him only because they thought he was Asian.
Both he and Guillem belonged to the Catalan Independence movement, and tried to promote the Catalan language whenever they could, even pretending that they didn't speak Spanish.
"Did you know that only 40% of the people in Catalonia speak Catalan at home?" Guillem said. "It is the native language of only 30%. This is shameful!"
I turned to Ramon. "You must stand out at Catalan advocacy meetings, being the only Chinese guy there."
Guillem glared at me. "He is Catalan. Are you English or German, because your grandparents were from those places?
I could see who was the dominant partner in this relationship! "Well...I like to claim my Potawatomie Indian heritage..."
We ducked inside for a look.
Dinner, served around 10:00, was trinxat, a sort of potato and cabbage quiche with fried eggs, a dark black sausage, and bread on the side, while a Spanish language version of Roseanne played in the background.
I guess it didn't come in Catalan.
After dinner we sat in the living room. I hadn't been with Guillem yet, so I fondled his chest and kissed him. Soon all four of us were naked. I was going down on Guillem's rather thick Kielbasa, while Guillem and Lane were both working on Ramon. I shrugged and grabbed Ramon and kissed him.
Have you guessed who I had my second Greek passive experience with?
Answer after the break
"Wait...I thought all four of us would be sharing," I said, puzzled.
"Our beds are too small for four. Two is much nicer." He kissed me. "And Guillem is a bottom, and I am a top, so it works out, you see."
He thought I was a bottom? I burst into laughter. "Guillem is in for a surprise. Neither of us is interested in anal sex."
"Not even for me? I am negative for SIDA, and I'm very small, you see, so it doesn't hurt. And afterwards I will be so excited that...maybe I will go down on you." He fondled me.
"Well...if you use a condom, I guess it would be ok."
So I had my first anal experience in ten years, with a Chinese Catalan top in Barcelona. It didn't hurt much, and it was kind of exciting having Ramon on top of me. Still, I prefer the front side.
