I Was a Cock-Teaser for Roosterama!

(There will be plain talk of men’s bodies and mansex, so not for kids or the sexually modest. On the other hand, there’s a lot of playfulness.)

A brief routine from the Firesign Theatre, the fourth track on their compendium album Dear Friends (2001); you can listen to it here. The album has routines from the comedy troupe’s radio shows — highly improvisatory, veering in odd directions in a virtual haze of pot smoke.

It started with some Dick Danger gay porn, which led to the Firesign Theatre and their “The Further Adventures of Nick Danger, Third Eye”, which took me to the cock-tease bit. That then took me to more gay porn, Raging Stallion’s 2013 Cock Tease, and to uses of cock tease / cock-tease / cocktease in general and on this blog.

So it starts with my 3/9/18 posting “The further adventures of Dick Danger”, with a title taking off on FT’s “The Further Adventures of Nick Danger, Third Eye” (itself a take-off on the Sam Spade private dick novels, with infusions from other sources, including the Beatles’ song “Rocky Raccoon”).

Exchanges with a friend about sexual content in FT’s sketches — some gay-tinged, but in my estimation, neither celebrating nor dissing queers, instead designed  to discomfit queer-wary straight guys — led me from FT’s character Rocky Rococo to Roosterama. Note: Roosterama is a FT invention. (Fosters Freeze in the sketch “Freezing Mr. Foster” is, on the other hand, a genuine soft-serve ice cream restaurant in California.)

The beginning of the sketch list on Dear Friends:

Toad Away [a play on towed away]; Sodom And Jubilee [snark on religiosity]; Freezing Mr. Foster; I Was A Cock-Teaser for Roosterama!; Deputy Dan Has No Friends [outrageous children’s book in Spanish translated for the audience]; …

The cock-teaser sketch begins, from out of the blue:

I came out of twelve years of college and I didn’t even know how to sew. All I could do was account [with a degree in accountancy, presumably].

He couldn’t even account for himself. This leads somehow to chicken-clucking noises and so to cock-teasing at Roosterama (the speaker boasts that he enraged bantams), and then to bear-baiting (unsubtle allusion to masturbating), then bear-hating, and on to the unpleasant habits of untamable bears.

The ideas tumble past in free association, fresh ones every few seconds.

We can only speculate about what all goes on at Roosterama, with its name incorporating the libfix -((o/a)r)ama ‘display, spectacle, something really major’ — except that teasing cocks and enraging bantams, flagrantly, are on the menu.

In the sketch, it’s a man who teases cocks at Roosterama, so the actions are heavily gay-tinged. In a gay context, there are at least three relevant senses of cock-teasing:

teasing (playing with) one’s cock (especially by sticking a hand in one’s pants and masturbating, especially for an audience)

edging (teasing a man’s cock by stimulation, but withholding the release of ejaculation); see this posting of 3/8/13

teasing with one’s cock (arousing men through bodily display)

There are written descriptions, still photos, and videos showing all three activities; the third is the primary usage on this blog (there is a cock tease Page here). From my 3/7/13 posting “cock tease”:

Some models [for male photography] who avoid dick shots nevertheless happily pose for shots in which their dicks are ostentatiously concealed (by a hand or some object) and shots in which they flagrantly display themselves just short of exposing the root of the penis; these are two types of what I’ll call cock tease shots, in which the homoerotic undercurrents of nude male photography are elevated to central aspects of the pictures.

In such performances, actual cocks are withheld. But even when cocks are revealed — by male strippers or dancers, for example, performing for women or for gay men — they are still withheld from the audience, in the sense that they usually aren’t made available for sexual acts with members of the audience; the cocks excite admiration, arousal, orgasm, but without physical contact. (There are gay sex clubs with strippers or dancers who go on to offer their dicks for stroking and sucking by spectators. Even there, the performers must necessarily withhold their cum for all but a few spectators; they can manage only so many shots in a show.)

The overriding theme is display combined with withholding: withholding the cock from view, withholding contact with the cock, withholding cum.

The full spectrum of performances is on view in the 2013 Raging Stallion gay porn flick Cock Tease. The cover photo on the DVD and the studio’s ad copy are both available in today’s AZBlogX posting “Raging Sallion’s cock tease”. A dickless version of the cover (in two parts) and the beginning of the ad copy:

(#1) Brayden Forrester, Caleb Colton, Mitchell Rock

(#2) Killian acts in one scene; on the pornstar, see the XBlog posting

Director Adam Killian wraps up his Monster Bang Cock Trilogy with Cock Tease. It may be the hardest 150 minutes of your life. Tattered clothing exposing all the best parts is the common denominator of these scenes, and it starts the tease. It both reveals and conceals, freeing your imagination to choose between the hidden flesh and the exposed. It’s all hard, and sweaty enough to make you dizzy, and then Adam Killian choses some of the biggest dicks he can find to really get you teased into a jack off frenzy.

The promise of the cock-teasing is rapidly fulfilled, with four scenes packed with mansex and spurting cum. Involving Jesse Santana, Trenton Ducati, and Jake Genesis as well as Killian and the three men on the cover.

Cock-teaser and strip-teaser. In OED2. Cock-teaser (which the OED has only for reference to a woman) seems to have been attested first, but strip-teaser and strip-tease (which the OED treats as potentially gender-neutral, and NOAD treats explicitly as gender-neutral) seem to have gained wide currency first (through Variety).

cock-teaser  n. coarse slang a sexually provocative woman who evades or refuses intercourse. [1st cite 1891, in Farmer & Henley’s slang dictionary]

cock-tease n. coarse slang [with the same meaning, and now the preferred variant] [1st cite 1957]

cock-teasing adj. [1st cite 1968]

noun strip-teaser: orig. U.S.  A performer of strip-tease; an ecdysiast or stripper. [1st cite 1930, in Variety]

noun strip-tease: Etymology: Back-formation < strip-teaser. colloq. (orig. U.S.). A kind of entertainment in which a female (occasionally a male) performer undresses gradually in a tantalizingly erotic fashion before an audience, usually to music; an instance of this. [1st cites in Variety, in the 1930s]

From NOAD:

noun cockteasevulgar slang a woman who leads a man to the mistaken belief that she is likely to have sexual intercourse with him. [GDoS on cockteaser / cocktease: ‘a woman (or man, if gay) who permits or encourages a good deal of sexual intimacy but not intercourse’; gay cites appear in the 1960s and 70s]

noun striptease: a form of entertainment in which a performer gradually undresses to music in a way intended to be sexually exciting.

noun ecdysiast: humorous a striptease performer. ORIGIN 1940s: from Greek ekdusis ‘shedding’, on the pattern of enthusiast.

Sadly, the noun ecdysiasm seems to be used only as a medical term referring to a compulsion to undress in order to produce sexual desire in others. Which should be known as pornstar’s disorder, I suppose.
