Why Male Porn Stars Jerk Themselves Off

shuttlelaunch.jpg

There is arguably no porn without the money shot (unless you like lesbians). And for what are I’m sure very personal reasons, many porn watchers are turned off by watching the guys take over from their female counterparts and finish the job themselves. Why does this happen? Read on for my take.



The Reasons Male Porn Stars Have to Do it Themselves:

1. The girls don’t know how to do it right
You wouldn’t expect a one-night stand to know exactly how to handle your cock, would you? Girls come and go in porn every day. It may not seem like it after the 30th time you’ve seen Audrey Hollander’s innards, but the average “career” in porn lasts about 6 months. On top of that, being a porn star doesn’t necessarily mean you’re any good at sex. When you add it up, getting a hand job from an inexperienced stranger probably isn’t the most efficient way to cum.

2. They don’t necessarily like the girls
It’s no secret that if you’ve got a vagina and are willing, someone will put you in a porn movie. And when your job is to screw whatever the director hires, you don’t always end up with a girl you’re into. In fact, you almost never end up with a girl you’re into. If you’re not mentally turned on, it’s hard to cum. You’ve got to take matters into your own hands.

3. Porn sex is nothing like real sex
After years of making your living by fucking hundreds or thousands of different women, it gets a little difficult to get excited about sex – especially in an environment where you are expected to keep a hard-on for several hours with a half dozen people standing around. And when the director wants the money shot, you’d better be able to deliver quickly or you risk losing your paycheck for the day. Remember what I said about efficiency in #1? Taking care of your own business is the easiest way to get the job done and get out of there.

A lot of people ask us to label scenes where the guys don’t jack themselves off. We don’t have a very good way of doing that, but if you’ve got some favorites you’d like to share with your fellow members, go ahead and post ‘em in the comments. I’m sure it’ll be much appreciated.

    It is not my preference, but I don’t mind it too much if they did a quick edit to the moneyshot. If there is just a huge gap between the action and the guy finishing it really can mess up a scene. The girl is just hanging out waiting while the guys wails on himself. This annoys me. The director/editor could fix this with a quick edit. There is my opinion.

  2. deathdealer Says:

    My favorites scenes were the woman finishes the man is the Tory Lane scene in POV casting couch #4 scene 3 and the Alektra Blue in Secretarys Day scene 2. Peace.

  3. Passels Says:

    If any of that were true, the guy would just do it himself and when he was ready to cum he would have the girl finish him off (with a little edit). I just think as a guy, it feels better when I finish it myself, and it also makes me feel like I’m more in control. Lets face it, noone know you, better then you! It would be possible for a girl to do that everytime, maybe these directors don’t know its such of a wanted commodity.

    P.S. Still waiting on Rope’s favorite porn star list.

  4. alison Says:

    tbird11 – Agreed. The editing in most porn leaves much to be desired.

    deathdealer – Thanks for posting those. I linked them up so people could find them easily.

    Passels – All I know is what guys in the business have told me. It makes me wonder why people hate to see guys finishing themselves since it’s the more pleasurable thing. The fantasy is better I guess?
    P.S. So am I.

  5. nzpossum Says:

    Mark Davis is the worst at this. He spend about half an hour wanking himself before he cums.

  6. papayaman Says:

    Forgive me if I’m going off-topic, but the thing that irritates me far more than the guy finishing himself is when the camera focuses in on his face as he is having an orgasm. My own feeling is when I watch porn I want the action to be focused on the woman. This is something a few people have complained about lately. And I agree. All I want to see of the male orgasm is the semen going on the girl’s face or tits. Lets face it most if not all guys look pretty stupid when they’re coming (if you dont believe me look at the evidence on this site). And when you are getting off on what may well be a hot scene the last thing you need is for that scene to be spoiled by a close up of some neanderthal (as so many of them are) looking as though he has received a sharp blow between the eyes with a ball hammer.

  7. Ben Morgan Says:

    I don’t know about the rest of you guys, but nobody has been able to get me off since my early thirties without at least a little participation from me. I must say if anybody could, it would be Alexa Lynn (She Likes it Black #5, scene 1) I’ve never had a pro though.

  8. extreme31 Says:

    In response to the above ‘reasons’:

    1. It should be one of the standard requirments of a porn starlet to be able to at least be able to finish the job properly. Put it this way, if an IT geek can’t do all things related to computers, should he be in the job??
    2. Fair point if the chick is totally unattractive, but most of the time this is just not the case – I’m sure my fellow subscribers would agree.
    3. If the guy is bored of sex… What the hell is he doing in the biz??? I have not, and will never get bored of sex (I have to come here for extra curricular), so if they can’t cum properly, I know a man who can… Send the application form!

  9. alison Says:

    papayaman – It’s kind of mind-boggling that a director would ever focus on a guy’s face, let alone during the money shot. That’s an excellent description of what it feels like to see the very last thing you’d ever want to see in a porno.

    Ben Morgan – I linked up your scene in case anyone missed it yesterday.

    extreme31 – I will simply refer you to Dave Cummings’ classic treatise, Getting into the Porn Industry

  10. sundubys Says:

    Well my take on all of this is it’s hard alone to get a boner infront of 20 people standing and watching you, then the next task would be to cum on command, I mean c’mon that’s not a easy task, and that’s why you see the same faces of male porn stars through the decades, because they are consistent in performing. Furthermore I personally like it when the girl is sucking on the guys nuts and the guy is jerking it, and I dont mean just licking his nuts,but straight out tugging on his nuts and sucking them, and I would love it if some one would post a video on that, cause that’s how I like it in my personal life as well, I like when a girl sucks my balls and shakes her head and humms, while I jerk it, and then I glaze her face….Love it!

  11. Dutchy Says:

    My personal guess is that the director usually wants most of the jizz to end up in the girls face or in it’s whereabouts (I.E. mouth). To be sure to have a good money shot, I guess the guy needs to control the direction of the said projectile in order for most to of it to end up where it’s “supposed” to be since he’s had more experience.

    P.S. I personaly don’t see the point of having the girl’s face full of goo.

  12. DP Says:

    Well since we are on the topic I have a couple points.

    1) You never know what kinds of medications these guys are on. It is a well known fact that antidepressants can lead to male inorgasmia. Add to that the peter north ’secret’ pills that increase semen volume, maybe some viagra to get them up and keep them up, it is a wonder that some of these guys can get off at all.

    2) I wonder about how the sensitivity of their cock can be altered, thus leading to the need to get themselves off. If they are getting their cock handled a couple times a day each week, I’d imagine that their dick would become less sensitive over time, making it more difficult to cum with help from the female starlet.

    3) I agree that some of the girls working in porn are absolutely hideous, I’d imagine some of the guys working with them have to go to a ‘happy place’ and fantasize about someone else in order to pop. Additionally I think the psychological element of popping comes into play. For instance, if the female porn star isn’t really ‘into’ the scene and is being pretty quiet, or being real bad at acting like she enjoys it, then the psychological element is totally lost for the guy. So that’s half of the equation to getting to orgasm, the psychological erogonous zone.

    Unrelated to discussion- I typed this using paragraphs, but for some reason it comes out as one huge wall of text. Any way to change that? Reading 1 long paragraph is an eyesore.

  13. DP Says:

    Additional comment about popshots- I can’t stand it when the guy either misses the girl with most of the cum, has a 1-2 drop popshot, or the girl obviously dodges the cumshot to her face. Those scenes are totally ridiculous and a major killjoy. Maybe a future topic of discussion for videobox blogging is “Top 10 Cum Dodgers” ;)

  14. Cromin Says:

    Papayaman: I agree totally. Even worse is getting your own money shot just as it shows the guys face. I believe the technical term for this is Porn Trauma

  15. alison Says:

    sundubys – Good point. Anyone ever see a scene where that happens?

    Dutchy – The rise of the facial probably had a lot to do with it. I don’t get it either.

    DP – Viagra has definitely invaded the industry to a huge degree. (You know someone’s on it if they turn bright red during the scene) And I definitely agree with your second point. As for paragraph breaks, I insert a line break tag in my comments to accomplish it. Wordpress is kinda crappy in that way. “Top Cum Dodgers” coming right up :)

  16. Jeff Says:

    I think they try to do too much these days. You’re more likely to see girls getting the guys off in the older classics where they take it slower, it’s more sensual, and you can feel the love. There may not be a facial at the end but I think that’s pretty gross anyway, especially on a pretty face. I don’t get the big deal with facials.

  17. putmeinchaynes Says:

    There’s no such thing as a male porn-star.

  18. VB Says:

    “Money Shots” bore me. I don’t usually watch them.

  19. Freddy Says:

    Seems to me there has been an evolution (or maybe a de-evolution) of comeshots. Back in the day the guys would pull out as they were coming and spray often right there were theywere fucking. The landing site often depending on the position. We’ve all seen Ron Jeramy have his girl countdown from twenty, pull out and come. The sceens were a lot shorter it seems. Nowadays, the guys screw forever…. and we’ve seen some wild shit. After he pulls out we usually get a cut and change of camera angl just as he comes.
    My take is that they’ve trained them selves, and/or thier johnson to only come by jerking off. A hooker once told of guys that could only come if they or she jerked them off. If if these guys are in training… post something about it. There may be some middle of the road Nirvana worth checking out.

  21. Shaun Says:

    My take is this.. If I fuck my wife for more than 40 minutes, really give her a few amazing orgasms, at that point, I have overstimulated myself. Don’t get me wrong, its worth it to see her dripping pussy get freaked. But at that point, I’d probably hurt her with how hard I’d have to fuck her to give her a good blast. So I finish with my hand, and maybe stick it in while I’m blasting. Or, as I was trying to get her preggies the last few months, I would only concentrate on giving her 1 orgasm, or take turns.

    Porn stars are stopping and starting for lighting changes, and I cant imagine that the women’s pussies are particularly tight. After an hour of impersonal performance art, I can foresee not being at the absolute peak of excitement. Though I like to imagine trying!!!!

  22. Ben Says:

    Does anyone still read this thread? Anyway incase anyone does… It really annoys me when I’m watching blow or handjob videos (I have mouth and also hands fetish) and the girl is clearly very talented but the guy stops her, stands back and wanks off. I spoke to quite a lot of girls about this and they find it personally offensive, as though it suggests the girl isn’t good enough to get someone off. One even stopped seeing her fuck buddy when he did that himself and she took it persaonally. I love it when a girl makes me come and I do pretty well so to speak – yet if a new girl is determined to make me come then I can instantly on cue, no problem. I can’t see how so called porn stars can enjoy having a wank more than a nice girl doing it. :-)
