Speaking of Jack-off Parties


Simon Sheppard, QSyndicate.com

Do you long for the good old days of circle jerks around a roaring campfire? Perhaps you're concerned about sexually transmitted diseases? Or maybe you're just a bit on the shy side?

In any or all those cases, a jack-off party may be right up your alley. The Golden Age of Social Masturbation dates back to the early days of the HIV epidemic; gay men still wanted to have the same kind of spurt-happy fun they'd enjoyed in bathhouses and sex clubs, but to do it safely. And hey presto - the jack-off party!

Typically, a night at Masturbation Central runs like this: You enter a large space and, if it's a commercial enterprise, you pay an entrance fee, furnish ID, and sign a release. There's a clothes check, usually mandatory - to get into wankers' heaven, you'll have to strip down to undies or nothing at all. Then it's off to a big room where scads of masturbators are pounding pud - their own or somebody else's. The rules for j.o. fests vary, but contact is usually limited to hands-on-body only. Titplay is fine, as is stroking, kissing, and of course, jacking cock, but oral and anal sex are strictly off the menu.

Sound kind of boring? Nope. One masturbation maven enthuses, "I always thought that beating off was one of the most intense forms of sex, anyway. I really know how to make myself feel good, and the feel of another man's hand on my hard-on is wonderful. So when I started going to jack-off parties, I didn't feel like I was sacrificing anything, unless being around other hot, stroking, naked men is a sacrifice. I sure don't think so."

One of the many nice things about jack-off parties is how easy they are to put on right at home. Requirements? Sufficient space to sit or lean, surfaces that can stand a flood of cum, a group of horny pals, some boxes of tissues, a place to wash up, and sufficient quantities of high-grade lube.

Once the guys start arriving and stripping down, there's not much icebreaking required; all it takes is a horny exhibitionist with a hard dick to get things underway. Approaching men at j.o. parties seems, to many folks, less intimidating than at other group sex shindigs. While hosting your wankfest, relax. All you really have to do is keep the room warm and the guests feeling welcome. And if you're a guest, rest assured that you can have a fine old time even if all you do is watch other guys playing with themselves.

So what makes for a great jack-off party? "It's the lube," says one masturbation fan. Many fervent meat-beaters love Albolene, a "moisturizing cleanser" that's slippery, smooth, and feels great against tumescent dickflesh. And it's readily available at your local drugstore. It's not water-based, but one of the nice things about jack-off parties is the non-necessity of condoms, and therefore of water-based lubricants. (Which does not, sorry to say, mean that mutual masturbation is totally risk-free. While it would take some amazingly bad luck to pass HIV through mutual masturbation, it's easier to transmit other STDs - such as Chlamydia - that way.) Albolene comes in jars, not pumps, so men will be dipping their hands into a common stash of goo. If that seems icky, a host can always fall back on pump-style lubes or creams.

Do remember that if you're using any greasy lube, clean-up can be a bit of a chore; spreading out a bunch of old bedsheets pre-party will help. Good jack-off parties leave no traces except a bunch of smiling men and piles of cum-drenched Kleenex in the trash.
