I think the first time I realised that I like to watch was as a young adolescent. I'd taken the train to the city with some friends to see Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. It was Moomba (people from Melbourne will relate), which is a public holiday with a street parade. Moomba is an indigenous word meaning getting together and having fun. But I digress...
We had to risk life and limb and cross the road during the parade so we could get to The Regent theatre where the movie was being screened. I'm pretty sure it was the year I was about 12 or 13 years old. One of those anyway...lol.
You know the one...Katherine Ross arrives home to her small cottage and starts getting undressed for a bath. Robert Redford surprises her and threatens her with a gun, forcing her to take all of her clothes off and untie her chemise. Slowly. Very slowly.
Oh. My. God.
My heart pounded so fast and loud I was almost deafened. I was so hot I was sure everyone beside me would be feeling the heat radiating off me. (Okay, I guess this was also when I realised that I liked a but of Dom/Sub action too, but I didn't have a clue what it was at the time;-)).
My life changed in that one scene. It wasn't just the hormones coming to the fore, it was like a switch turned on.
So now, many years later I still get off on watching. Mostly watching from the comfort of my bed reading my favourite erotic novel, or erotic movie scenes....the feeling has never died, and now I find myself writing a voyeuristic story. I have to say it's making me hot!
BTW...I've seen that movie 12 times :-) I must get it out again...
So let me know...do you like to watch? Stand up and be counted!
