Gay refers to the attraction towards or desire for the same gender or similar genders to one's own. Terms such as homosexual and homoromantic can be considered synonyms or subcategories of the gay umbrella. While gay applies to men, women, and non-binary people, it is sometimes used to only refer to gay men. The term lesbian tends to be used specifically for gay women and, less commonly, other terms are usually used specifically for gay men.

People were simply sexual creatures and had sex with those who interested them — it might be a man or a woman. There was also a system of sexual and mental mentoring known as pederasty, wise members of Greek society would take on a young man to scholar and instruct. It was characteristic of the Archaic and Classical periods. Originally, the Greek daddy and twink would travel to somewhere secluded and begin a process of intellectual and emotional development. He was playing hard to get to make sure the relationship was built on love.
I was 19 when I first had full-on sex with another man. I was at college, living in dorms, and the experience—aside from the usual horrifying awkwardness and somewhat spontaneity of the occasion—was completely and utterly unremarkable aside from one thing: the guy I slept with identified as straight. It was late or early, depending on your outlook on the world when I was joined by the boy who was living in the room next to mine, way back on the other side of the building. He was clearly intoxicated, but it was a party after all and who was I, quite drunk myself, to judge. The minutiae of exactly how things developed from us being together in that room to us having slightly unsuccessful sex in a bathroom in a different corridor have since escaped me.
