How I came to love watching men jerk off

Catching the reality porn bug

Recently I started editing porn. Considering that I’ve spent an almost embarrassing portion of my life watching porn, this seemed ideal. Once a week my boss fills my external hard drive with content for me to edit from the comfort of my own home. Sounds fantastic, right?

Except it’s straight content, and mainly solo stuff to boot.

I pride myself in being as versatile in my choice of porn as I am in the bedroom, but I have never been interested in watching people of either gender jerk off.

I am a sucker for amateur porn and sites that put you directly into the action. I also love high-production porn with impossibly beautiful men, but I get off much easier when I can relate to the situation.

All that changed in 2009 with Chatroulette. It became a regular activity for me and my friends, regardless of sexuality or gender. We would sit around wearing animal heads, clicking in vain through what was mostly straight guys jerking off while hunting for a chick who would reciprocate.

For me this was highly arousing on many levels: the group aspect of it, the voyeurism, the fact that the men were straight, and, of course, being the furvert that I am, the animal heads! After my friends left, I would stay up in search of that one guy who would jerk off with me. I thought how well-received a gay site like this would be. Shortly after, to my delight, Manroulette and other less interesting gay versions of Chatroulette appeared.

Sites like these provide average Joes the opportunity to become pornstars from the comfort of their own homes. Speaking of comfort, users seem more inclined to whip it out since it’s a private interaction that lasts only until one of the users decides to click “next.” That said, nothing prevents a person from taking a screen shot or recording the whole thing with a camcorder.

Another site that has recently caught my interest is sausageparty.com, which documents what, in my opinion, would be the hottest birthday party ever! The concept is simple: a bunch of regular guys sit around watching strippers get blown by their friends until the strippers climax on the faces of the few lucky guests as the others cheer. Again we have regular Joes becoming pornstars, and it’s totally hot from both perspectives. I can easily imagine myself as a guest at the party, watching some guy cum on my friend’s face — or receiving the facial as my friends watch — or, as the stripper, getting to be the all-you-can-eat party sausage.

Considering how video killed the radio star, is reality porn doing the same to the pornstar?
