So, here's something that I've noticed that is usually avoided in today's porn, although there are some exceptions. Sucking off, sharing and swallowing cum. In my generation (1960s through 1970s) it was rare for anyone to spit a guy's load out if he came in your mouth. If you see vintage gay porn from the 1970s (even straight porn) you'll notice that we reveled in sucking a guy dry, making sure not to lose a drip of all that precious boy batter. In addition, it was common for the guy you sucked off to pull you up and swap his load back and forth until it was gone or returned the favor and quickly sucked you off. Sure, we identified as tops and bottoms, but cum play was frequently a major part of getting the most bang out of your fuck. Granted, without protection, there is the possibility of contracting HIV. But even the CDC admits that oral transmission is rare to nonexistent since saliva is a well known virus killer. You have to have open sores, serious gum disease or fresh cuts inside your mouth for ejaculate to be a serious problem. And although every top might magically wear a condom when they begin to fuck, 99% of the "oral" bottoms don't protect their mouths. Instead, they suck cock with abandon often sucking off one or more partners. Then when it's time for the big finish everyone tries to get as close as possible to the oral bottom's mouth, with everyone masturbating to a finish in the direction of the central character's mouth. Instead everyone the bottom has blown sprays their loads on his chin, shoulder, arm, down his chest -- everywhere except in his mouth and down his throat. Invariably the boys or young gents rarely share and play with each other's spooge. And considering all that unprotected cock sucking, certainly disease isn't THAT big of an issue, because the oral bottom's been working out all the pre cum that often dribbles in bits and spurts as one is receiving head. Hell, everyone acts as if ejaculate is icky and won't even grab another's guy's cum covered tool and help him enjoy the fading sensations of an orgasm. What a waste. My first question is: Don't gay men enjoy the taste of cum or get off on swallowing, snowballing, and otherwise playing with one another's loads any more? Is there a serious aversion to having contact with another man's cum in your mouth, on your hands or any part of your body as the 21st Century marches on? When I first became sexually active my "sex buddy" and I probably didn't enjoy gulping down each other's loads -- at first. But it didn't take long for both of us to learn to like it -- a lot. And when we encountered other guys for group action we were ready for what it took to engage in daisy chains, timing our orgasms so we all came at basically the same time. This meant swallowing as well as lingering around to clean off every possible drop. And since we were in our teens, it included getting hard and doing all over again with a differen't cocks in our mouths. I now see new bareback fucking and gang bangs videos without protection just as frequently as I see new gay porn where EVERYONE is wearing a love glove. But before any "safe" fucking begins everyone is into serious deep rimming. It took me a long time to acquire a taste for rimming -- even with long-time lovers. In today's porn rimming is second only to sucking a guy off. (Yeah, I know, these are "professionals", still it's a major change in sexual play from my era.) My second question is: Ironically, in most new bareback porn, a guy's ass is usually left dripping quarts of cum, lots of close ups, but god forbid the same actor be given a close up enjoying and/or sharing several mouths full of the exact same substance. What's up with that? The only exception to the lack of cum play in gay porn seems to be Treasure Island Media. And they go overtly in the opposite direction. I've purchased some of their CDs, primarily because a member of their stable of actors, his stage name initials are D.D., is the grandson of one of my first cousin's. Yet another escapee from a giant mormon family. Imagine how proud his parents must be -- and doubly imagine how happy that makes me! D.D. has a whole series of amature porn he and his boyfriend have cobbled together making it a speciality to "do" parts of the USA. I dunno. Maybe it's genetic? He can certainly deep throat and enjoy almost suffocating as he worships cock. For examples of "the way it used to be" in the good ol' days, check out Joe Gage's Kansas City Trucking Company, El Paso Wrecking Company, and L.A. Tool Die; especially the first scene in L.A. Tool and Die where John Locke (a long ago short term flame of mine, circa 1974) is begged to join a Gage Man regular to share in finishing off some lucky bastard with a long, skinny cock who is about to pop. Major wet and messy. Anyway, help an old, over sexed vestige of the pre HIV years out and select one of the survey questions. It's not the best survey, but it's what I came up with at the last minute.
