05 Nov Monday Masturbators: “The Kids Are Probably Alright” Edition
Maybe everpresent pornography and the ability to watch your peers masturbate is creating an unforeseen type of sexual liberation.
Monday! And around here, that means we’re gonna talk about some dudes jackin’ it for everybody to see.
This post, as many of my posts do, started as a conversation with a friend who was arguing that kids today (for the intentions of this post/blog, “kids” is what I’m using to define anybody my age and younger. So we’re talking dudes in the 18-31 range. Younger than that isn’t the focus, though I think there is a conversation to be had about those dudes – just somewhere else) are ultimately going to regret taking and sharing naked photos and videos, and that it was going to cost them something unexpected down the line.
And while my friend may have a case there – imagine a day when the Attorney General or the mayor of your town has readily accessible jack off clips from their younger days (since nothing ever really gets deleted from the internet) – I wondered back if it had to be that way?
For my sake (and this might be too short-sighted of me), I think it’s totally incredible that young guys can find images and clips of guys who look and talk and behave like them, demonstrating the ways they masturbate, and even celebrating arousal and maleness.
Back in St. Olaf – I mean – when I was a kid, trying to figure out where I fit in to the larger constructs of sex and homosexuality, I watched a LOT of porn online. But little of it was amateur created, and almost none of it featured guys who looked like I did (it was early days and we didn’t have tumblr or twitter to direct the flow of content); they were COLT muscledads, or big-dicked jocks, or Generally European monsterdong Bel Ami dudes. I loved watching their arousal and their pleasure, but I didn’t see me in any of that.
XY Magazine provided a portal through which I could view boys more beautiful than I ever thought I would be, but while they were often erotically posed and photographed, they never delved into the carnal sexual behavior I so desired to witness.
In the years that followed my early forays into porn viewing, there would be a surge of “twink” related content online. But it would never feel authentic or safe. The focus was almost entirely on how underaged the guys appeared, and often how they were “straight, bro” and had “never done anything like this before.”
I didn’t care about someone looking like they were under 18, and it felt lecherous and bizarre to me that others would be fixated on that concept. I just wanted to see guys that reflected how I saw myself, so that I could feel more ok with my constant, insatiable need to masturbate.
Which is why, in the age of everybody-has-an-iphone and tumblr-is-free, I’m excited to find clips of young guys openly displaying their penises, smiling, and stroking. I think it’s incredible that these young men (if not live, then) find these moments of pride and unashamedness in their bodies and their developing sexuality. Beyond my laughing and clapping at these dudes’ youthful magic, though, I think this phenomenon – young guys filming their masturbation and bodies and sharing it – is significant to shaping how these and other young men view themselves. I think it forms a groundwork for understanding sexuality that pervious generations (who likely grew up believing that masturbation was a “sin” or would cause them permanent harm or damage) could never imagine.
These guys are free. And any repercussions they do face will become less and less significant as time passes. Showing off your pleasure and tossing aside socially-induced shame about having a penis or about sexual gratification matters. It teaches others that they don’t need to be ashamed, and it helps the broader world to see that sex is part of the human experience. A cosmically necessary one.
I don’t know who this dude is, but I’m pretty sure this is him in both of these videos. I liked them because, A. this kid is clearly a masturbator – that glazed, open-mouth stare he keeps fixated on his hard dong betrays him – and B. because this was me in my dorm room every day and night of undergrad, dry jacking until I nutted on every textile or surface in the room:
This guy seems mad young to me, but his greasy penis noise and penisbabble is so on point that you should watch it anyway:
The pleasure-focused narcissism in this is STRONG, but if you’ve never gotten into that goon zone in front of the mirror, watching your own nuts bounce up and down, you don’t know why this is incredible. I only wish he were louder:
I could post videos here about this all day long, but I encourage you to think about the stuff that I said here when you’re perusing Nuthin’ But Naked Twinks or Poppin Da Pole for yourself. These are guys who are exposing themselves, not because of coercion or force, but because they fukkin can.
As always – if it’s you in any of the pics or clips I share, shout it out and I’ll be glad to add credits or remove. And do the same if you know who any of these guys are and where we can see more!
