Our expert says:
this type of curiosity and situation happens a lot with teenagers, and with many more teenage boys than people realise.
This event, you rightly have assessed as something that should not have happened without the other persons consent, but it does not make you some kind of terrible sexual predator or offender.
What is important is that you come to accept yourself for who you are in terms of your physicality and you sexuality. Being religious and gay are not in opposition to each other as some people would want you to believe.
Try to understand that what happened is about your struggle right now rather than you being a bad person.
