OPEN THREAD: Give Us The Gif That Describes Your First Queer Sex Experience

This week a brand new craze has taken the internet by storm! I am, of course, referring to that thread on Reddit where people sum up their first sexual experience using gifs.

This has yielded the following results:




And many more.

Now we could just team pick this because it’s funny—I have a habit of team picking things that make me spit-take. But I think we can do one better. It is my personal opinion that the average Autostraddle reader is both funnier and gayer than the average Redditor. So I think we can make a thread on here that will be both funnier and gayer.

There is only one thing I am asking of you: post a gif about your first lady-sex experience.

Here is how you do that. Just use some HTML right into the comment box: <img src=”paste-your-URL-here”>. Be sure that your URL is complete and includes the http:// part, and that the quotes are straight up and down quotes rather than curly quotes. If your image didn’t post, it’s ’cause you did the HTML wrong. We will fix it for you as soon as we can, so don’t post it again!

I’ll go first.

  1. I present to you, a Story of Queer Virginity, as told through Fernando Torres Gifs:

    First she was like this:

    And then I was like:

    And then she was like:

    Which meant I was like:

    So then, it was only a matter of courage:

    So then it was like:

    After which point, it was like:

    And, eventually it was like:

    And like:

    But like, nbd, right?

    That’s it!

  2. Not a period joke actually – this is the horror of not realizing that breaking hymen = possibility of looking down and noticing the sheets have mysteriously become soaked in blood and OH GOD WHEN DID THIS HAPPEN WHAT IS GOING ON YOU NAILS DON’T LOOK THAT SHARP I THOUGHT MY PRIEST WAS JUST JOKING ABOUT THE GAY SEX ANIMAL SACRIFICE WHERE IS MY CAT WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO HIM

    • I Googled ‘How to comment with a gif on Autostraddle’ and ended up here (best. Thread. Ever.), so I figured I might as well give it a go, but I failed. One day I will learn to do it, but today is not that day.
