In no specific order:
My mother had a beauty parlor in the 1960's, and my father had a bar frequented by sailors. The beauty parlor was my palace (wigs wigs wigs) and the bar, with dance hall and go-go cages, was my playground. Learned how to dance with the cocktail waitresses, IN the go-go cages, to the delight of many sailors.
Fascinated by condom machine in bar's men's room, especially, when sailors went in there to buy them, with tight pantt hard-ons because one of our waitresses hgad been fondling him (realized that later in life).
Felt up female patron's legs at the beauty parlor ("my, your son is going to be such a Casanova!") ... to find out if they were wearing stockings.
Choreographed dance numbers to Skater's Waltz, Sleigh Ride, Mame, and many Spanish songs which I made the neighborhood kids (I made sure I was the oldest so I could force them and not get beat up) perform, in between sets of "Tag" and "Hide & Seek."
All my toys were pretty boyish (record player, car dashboard, model planes, GI Joe). I reserved girly games for live people - myself and a towel, neighborhood girls and a brush.
[quote](short shoulderless, long shoulderless, halter top).
Wish I knew you then and we would have added one-shoulder, peasant blouse, and hippie caftan/mummu to the repertoire. Plus 5 hairstyles - long/behind ears, long/covering ears but behind shoulders (my favorite bc Debbie Shelton, Miss USA 1970 had it), long/all in front, long/all to one side in front of shoulder, upswept/tucked in back of neck.
Weekly fashion show in front of my Mom's mirror with every piece of clothing (Mom or Dad) that looked good on me.
Starred as Fritz three years in a row in San Juan Ballet's production of "The Nutcracker" (no dance training at that poit - except the bar girls)
Big living room mirror - "The Music and the Mirror." Enough said
Most kids had the Archies, the Beatles, Raphael, Cheryl Tiegs on their bedroom walls. I had a huge collection of the crowning of Puerto Rico's first Miss Universe in 1970 (see link, notice Debbie's Do, my fave)
Oh yes, ... had an affair (mostly fondling and kissing) with my P.E. teacher (male, 40's) when I was 10. Fucked up shit, but I wasn't really "sodomized."
After that, my focus shifted to man-stuff (locker rooms, bathrooms, etc) and out the window went the towels, wigs, and fringes. The dancing prevailed, and it became my first career.
