Love Scenes from the movies

''Is it sinful if I go to a whore house ?''
I asked the boatswain with the nickname "Mouse",
I had reached the age of seventeen
and I guess you understand what Ι mean...

You know.......
when I was in my home town,
often in my walks around
when I happened to walk by such a house, 
I was upset, nervous''.....
                ''I will take care of this...'' replied Μouse...

Maracaibo, Venezuela was the next port..

On that same night, the boatswain and I 
                                 [went to the place, "sell short"..

This was an enormous room open on the side.
Dozens of women, blue-eyed, brown eyed and black-eyed
were defiantly calling to sailors... 
                                                 [to offer sexual intercourse...
Inevitably, one of them led me to a room of course......

The only erotic experience I had was from film scenes
where they always have sex wearing trousers or jeans.

So I really was surprised when a girl asked me

to take off my trousers...
                        and of course I said "I don't agree !".
