The term circle jerk has become part of the common lexicon as a slang term for unproductive or unchallenged activities or thoughts. It’s not uncommon to hear self-congratulatory praise by a group of individuals described negatively as a metaphorical “circle jerk.”
But the term is quite literally a descriptor for a group sex activity where three or more penis-havers gather together to masturbate for and with each other. This can range from small groups of buddybate fanatics, to larger groups and clubs like the New York or Rain City Jacks. In situations involving lots of guys, as with jack off clubs, the ‘circle’ is often many small groupings, rather than all men standing shoulder to shoulder and masturbating the penises of their neighbors.
Cock is a great synonym for penis and carries a prideful tone that words like “dick” and “prick” do not. The word itself is connected to lots of good things (cock sucking, cock worship) and has an air of confidant authority absent in other terms.
Wouldn’t you rather sniff, suck, and love on a great cock, rather than a dick?
If you know me in person, you already are aware of how much I love cockrings, because it will be rare for you to catch me without one on. These are an all day/most days affair for me, and simply a necessity when there’s bate to be had.
Originally designed as medical devices meant to compress the dorsal vein of the penis during erection (restricting blood flow out of, but not into the penis), many cockrings today are merely decorative with some being mildly functional during stimulation. Think of them as jewelry for your penis. In fact, you’ll frequently see them described in the blanket term of Penis Accessories on badwolf.blog.
The OxBalls Mechanic ring is still one of the best starter and long-term wear rings available today.
Cockrings get a bad rap with the uninitiated and it’s not uncommon to see them derided on social media as a crutch for guys who can’t get or stay hard. The reality is, of course, that all penises are different, and personal erection milage may vary (I can’t personally sustain an erection all day long, with a cockring or without). While they don’t guarantee an erection, or force one on an unwilling penis, they do help to keep the genitals separated from the body which can add a level of sensation that keeps the wearer’s focus in that region more than normal, which is one of the core reasons I encourage the wearing of rings even when you’re not planning to fuck or play with your dong.
Noun: slang term for the collection of fluid produced during ejaculation; the ejaculate. Cum is comprised of several components aside from sperm, including proteolytic enzymes and fructose, which help sperm to survive. Cum is capable of carrying and transmitting some types of disease and other pathogens, including HIV. That said, consuming semen carries no additional risks beyond those already inherent in oral sex.
Throughout history, cum has enjoyed a storied and an almost comical significance:
“In some pre-industrial societies, semen and other body fluids were revered because they were believed to be magical. Blood is an example of such a fluid, but semen was also widely believed to be of supernatural origin and effect and was, as a result, considered holy or sacred. The ancient Sumerians believed that semen was a divine substance, endowed on humanity by Enki, the god of water.”Gwendolyn Leick – Sex and Eroticism in Mesopotamian Literature
Obviously, cum is pretty cool and is almost always deserving of enthusiastic applause when it happens. But while semen retention and other self deprivation practices abound to this day, there is no evidence that cum is magical or otherwise divine. It is merely the end result of somebody doing something awesome with a penis.
Verb: to cum is the verb form of cum, and is the actual act of orgasm and ejaculation in males. The slang cumming describes the discharge of semen from the reproductory tract as a result of orgasm. While it is most often the result of arousal and stimulation of sex parts, it is also possible to cum spontaneously during sleep, colloquially titled a “wet dream.”
When engaged in partner-based sex (even virtually), it is considered good behavior to provide verbal warning that one is approaching the edge and will soon cum. This allows other participants to be better focused on sharing your experience and/or edging themselves harder and farther in order to match your cumshot. Cumming together is very cool. Cumming together with matching cockrings is extra very cool.
