definitely easier to have, no pun intended, broader sexual preferences.
When I said my lust for a smooth young boy has moderated I wasn't thinking of my pansexuality. When I first discovered my love of the pretty lad I was most strongly attracted to boys my age or younger. Even though I've sold sex I never wanted to find myself one day paying for it. And a few years later my sexuality became more and more focused on romantic love. I didn't want that continuing when I was 30, much less later. For reasons as practical as personal-aesthetic.

In my opinion, eyeliner on boys seems more a case of gilding the lily.
I remember the first time I saw a boy wearing eyeliner (no other makeup) as clearly as if it were yesterday. Little did I realize I was discovering the core of my sexual aesthetic: genderfuck, androgyny, whatever you want to call it.
The merely very pretty boys are fine. When I was eighteen I wouldn't have said this. But I'd much rather see an average guy with a swish, trailing pixie dust in his wake.
