The language of sex and sexuality

(High sexual content.)

I discovered yesterday that I’d been neglecting my file of postings on the language of sex and sexuality (covering postings on LLog, AZBlog, and AZBlogX on vocabulary in the domains of sexuality, sexual roles, and sexual identities; sexual practices and devices; and sexualized clothing). I’ve been slowly remedying the deficiencies, but that’s a very considerable task, and there are topics I don’t seem to posted much on. Then along came an ad for a sale on gay porn with an illustration (on AZBlogX, here) of a sexual act that I haven’t posted much about: double-sucking, taking two penises by mouth at once (the anal analogue is called double penetration).

Both the double acts are essentially stunts, not easy to manage and not particularly satisfying for any of the men involved, but they make entertaining fantasy photos: two at once, the fantasy goes, must be twice as hot as one. (The corresponding gang acts, gang sucks and gang bangs, with the sex seriatim rather than simultaneous, are another matter, both in gay porn and, on occasion, in real life.)

The image on AZBlogX also has an unusual handling of gaze. The man in the photo isn’t looking at either or both of the men he’s serving, but instead is gazing directly at the camera — and, thus, at us, the viewers.
