(Warning: high sexual content.)

On a gay porn site yesterday, I came across references to men being edged — new to me, though it turns out I knew about the practice, but under the name orgasm control: keeping someone at a high level of sexual arousal for some time without orgasm. Edge here is a nice verbing of the noun edge; someone is kept at the edge of orgasm.

There’s a decent Wikipedia article, which begins:

Orgasm control, also known as “edging”, “peaking”, “surfing”, and by other terms, is a sexual technique which involves the maintenance of a high level of sexual arousal for an extended period of time without reaching orgasm, although orgasm can be reached eventually. If orgasm is not reached after the extended period of arousal, it is referred to as erotic sexual denial. If the partner whose orgasm is being controlled, sometimes referred to as the submissive partner, is put into physical restraints, it may better control the orgasm (the activity is sometimes called tie and tease and if orgasm is denied it is tease and denial). Another possibility is for one partner to help produce multiple orgasms in the other.

Orgasm control can involve either one sex partner being in control of the other partner’s orgasm, or a person delaying their own orgasm during either sexual intercourse or masturbation.

Turs out that there’s a gay porn site especially devoted to edging, in combination with bondage:

Men On Edge is Hot Guys Tied and Begging to Cum.

Men are bound and made helpless by infamous director Van Darkholme, an expert in male BDSM. Filmed images of men in painful BDSM situations and brutal rope play show what lengths Van will go through to try out his new toys and inventive methods.

Boner friendly handjobs will induce screaming, squirting and jizzing from rock hard, begging dicks that are denied their due. Hands, Hitachis [see below], sticks, dildos and all forms of mental and physical coersions are used on submissive men to deny orgasm to the point of complete anguish. Once their dicks are so engorged that they are vertical, male edgeplay really begins with cruel orgasm control . Taken to the brink of orgasm, these poor first-time bound babes are prevented from climax. This male edging seems goes on longer than you would think any human can take but then permission is finally granted and cum goes vigorously squirting.

(This is a pay site, but it does have teaser samples.)

Some of the videos:

(The men are enthusiastic volunteers, and the action is carefully choreographed.)

Now, Hitachis. The name does indeed come from the Japanese engineering and electronics company:

The Hitachi Magic Wand is an electric, mains-powered vibrating muscle massager, manufactured by Japanese manufacturing firm Hitachi. It first appeared on the North American market in the 1970s, and is well known for its use as a sex toy.

… The Hitachi Magic Wand, while associated with female masturbatory use, is also recognised as a highly effective toy for males. Female use usually focuses on vulva and clitoris stimulation as the unit cannot be used internally in its standard configuration. Males report use the vibrator on the shaft and glans of the penis to cause orgasm.

    speaking as a young gay, ive never heard it as something else other than edging. “orgasm control” sounds quite clinical

    […] see that anal practices get put on the spectrum.) And several other practices, like sounding, edging, and impact play, don’t make the chart. In any case, some of the rankings, like hot-wax play […]

    I find edging for a long period of time very hard to do. I’m just an up and comer!
