There was a discussion in this forum a while ago that touched on the subject of men becoming excited while watching other men masturbate. One particularly enlightened individual suggested, â€œyou watch other dudes, your gay, period.â€? â€¦ or something to that effect. I had intended to put in my $0.02, but I didnâ€™t get around to it. Searching for the original is tedious, and in any event it was an older post, so I might as well just go ahead and make a new thread:
Letâ€™s dispatch the gay thing right off the bat â€“ if youâ€™re gay, so t.f. what. Invoking the g-word, without so much as a Seinfeldian â€œâ€¦not that thereâ€™s anything wrong with it â€¦â€?, demeans the speaker more than the people he means to attack. Homophobic gay-bashing indicates a level of social awareness that is moronic at best, and mean-spirited. Think about the assumptions you make when you say something like the quote I opened with - what youâ€™re actually saying is that â€œif you do such-and-such then that means you are gay, and being gay is bad.â€? If you make statements like that often, then youâ€™re part of a venerable tradition; just substitute â€œblackâ€? or â€œIrishâ€? or â€œPuerto-Ricanâ€? or â€œfemaleâ€? for â€œgayâ€? to see what I mean. If you feel embarrassed at being seen as part of that tradition, you should be. Gays are our brothers, lesbians are our sisters â€“ were all just people, people! Conversely, straights are our brothers, etc., because you really canâ€™t be sure of what I am, now can you?
So, being gay has nothing to do with it, itâ€™s quite irrelevant. I can say that because, as it turns out, I am not gay, yet I sometimes derive a great deal of pleasure from watching and thinking about men pleasuring themselves.
Why is this? Well, Iâ€™m not really sure, actually. Iâ€™ll say a little about how it makes me feel, but I donâ€™t have explanations to offer. Perhaps others here can cast more light on it.
When I see a man masturbating, not simply to expose himself, but to reveal himself experiencing erotic pleasure, I can get turned on. This is often associated with my being able to see (or, as with some of the FL videos, hear) what it is that is exciting him. Iâ€™m sure itâ€™s an empathy thing; I can feel myself sliding right into his mind, thinking (or sometimes saying aloud) something like, â€œOh god that is so hot, no wonder itâ€™s got him so worked up, mmmmâ€¦.â€? We are a story-telling species; heâ€™s telling me a story, performing an act, and Iâ€™m right there in the picture with him, stroking with him. And I see how heâ€™s touching and stimulating himself and I know just how good it feels!
And hereâ€™s something else: if Iâ€™ve been looking at erotic pictures and Iâ€™ve gotten myself worked up over a tantalizing young sweetie who knows just what to do to get my cock hard and aching, and all of a sudden I realize that there are hundreds if not thousands of men all over the world who are being driven crazy by the same girl at the same time â€“ the intensity of my pleasure shoots up ten-fold! And I have a vision of all those cocks being masturbated to â€œmyâ€? girl, and I wish I could see them, and hear them, desperately stroking and moaning just like I am. I look into the girlâ€™s eyes, and I seem to see triumph there â€“ â€œI know all you guys love this, and need this, and Iâ€™ve got you right where I want youâ€¦â€?
So, gentlemen, does any of this sound familiar? Whatâ€™s your take on it?
And ladies (Passion, Pinky, â€¦) â€“ what are your feelings when you realize that several men are sweetly masturbating to your exciting performances?
