Brian’s Dickcumshot (2015)

This is beautiful and I have all kinds of (effing intense) thoughts/feels about it.

In content and form, it’s not really all that different from scads of other ejaculating phallus images floating around Tumblr; it’s the execution that distinguishes it.

Note the positioning of the body–angled toward the suffused daylight and the off-center framing of the cock demonstrates a foundation with the basics of compositional logic. Points have to be subtracted for chopping off the head, arms and legs, though. I abide concerns for remaining anonymous when putting such content on the interwebz, but finding creative ways to accomplish the same thing without decapitation/amputation is always possible and will categorically result in stronger images.

However, this gifset does something better than any similar images I’ve previously encountered. Watch how the subject quickly moves his hand aside as he starts to come. This movement decouples masturbation as process resulting in orgasm and instead focuses on the mechanics of ejaculation.

One of my pervasive critiques of mainstream, heteronormative porn is the at best inevitability and at worst monotony of the proceedings. The premise itself–namely: watching folks give and receive pleasure–leaves a great bit of room for beauty.

Sadly, as things diverge from documentation as a means of facilitating empathetic experience and becomes instead a fantasy fueled by a vampiric voyuerism, that’s where objectification and exploitation begin to intrude.

The empathy of this set is actually disarming. It takes a clear, unflinching portrayal of orgasm and renders it not about the viewer–in the stupid way some folks will send unsolicited nudes to a potential paramour as a sort of evidence of attraction–and instead something shared with the viewer.

In a less abstract way: it’s difficult to look at this and not relate to the sensual nature of what it depicts. In that way it functions in a vaguely synesthetic fashion: conflating seeing something with an inkling of the feeling of it.
