When Charles discovers how frustrated and self-conscious his best friend Erik is about his ignorance about sex, he's eager to volunteer to help teach him and practice. Charles might not have any more direct experience than Erik, but he does have a telepath's mind full of accidentally picked-up fantasies and memories, as well as knowledge of a few dirty books - and more importantly, he's been madly in love with Erik for years. This seems like a brilliant, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that he can't pass up.
Now he just needs to manage to keep his feelings in check, and not ruin their friendship forever.
So the entire genesis of this was me bored at work sending Kait emails about how one of my favorite tropes in the entire fucking world is, like, awkward teenage boys who make out and/or fool around sometimes but never ever talk about it. Basically, if you can put it in the category of "practicing" or "helping each other out" or anything where it's totally not gay and totally not a big deal (except maybe for how they're totally secretly in love with each other, whoops) I WILL EAT IT UP WITH A SPOON FOREVER.
Which is how we get here, fifty thousand words of awkward boners and feeeeeeeeelings later. Maybe you like those things too! If so, I think you will like this story. If not... well, I'm sure you are still an awesome person. I don't judge.
