Group Experience

In the 80s, as the world fell shocked by the HIV/AIDS crisis, the term "safe sex" became synonymous with the use of condoms. But masturbation was touted as the one sure bet. It's the singular way to enjoy release without the risk of contracting a sexually transmitted disease of any type.

Particularly where one may have HIV/AIDS and wanted to ensure he didn't infect anyone else.

This brought the birth of Jack Off Clubs. The Granddaddy of them all is the New York Jacks. The idea spread and there are groups in pretty much every major metropolis. The ideal place for guys to play together without the risk of infection.

That the membership in these groups spread into the straight community wasn't far behind shouldn't be a surprise. Straight dudes, who enjoy the exhibitionism or voyeurism of masturbating with like-minded guys, found them to be a great solution. The semi-public setting ensured the fun of it without the risk of arrest. Still others found this a terrific way to again experience the youthful circle-jerks they found so enjoyable.

Recently, researchers from the Lewis Katz School of Medicine announced they've come one step closer to a cure for HIV. They've managed to eliminate infected human tissue planted in mice.

"The next stage would be to repeat the study in primates, a more suitable animal model where HIV infection induces disease, in order to further demonstrate the elimination of HIV-1 DNA. Here, we demonstrate the feasibility and efficiency of excising the HIV-1 provirus in three different animal models,” reported the researchers.“To our knowledge, this study is the first to demonstrate the effective excision of HIV-1 proviral DNA from the host genome in pre-clinical animal models [using this method]."

They hope to begin a clinical trial by 2020. That's fantastic news, but most likely won't lower participation in group stroking, and there's no reason it should. It still offers a great sense of camaraderie, of belonging, of brotherhood. 




Have you, or would you, join in a group experience?

Me and my buddys gather all the time to jerk off. thanks to my dad we have a safe place for it. joking aside he can stay at home because we really dont care if he walks through and sees us. the guys wouldnt care if he stayed and joined us. that might be wierd for me even though he and me and my brother talked about jerkingoff and we see each others morning boners all the time. but if I saw him stroking his dick it wouldn't shoick me and I hope he wouldn't care that I saw. anyways I just wanted to say that the group ting is pretty awesome. - R

I have researched Philly Jacks, and when the Lad comes to town next, we are going to plan it so we can go to their group jack meeting. It gets about 30 to 40 guys I hear. I have had group run offs of course when were at the camp or the beach. I mean 7-8 gays guys in the house......you can imagine.

I've never done the group jerk thing. Great news about the hiv research, but I feel sorry for the animals.

It used to happen in the steamroom and sauna at gay clubs! Also mutual masturbation and sucking during those AIDS conscious years!

Have you ever tried to wank with a condom on your cock? If not, you should try at least one time. Better or not, it will be what you'll think of this practice, but it is at least different.
Love, hugs and bisous, my darlings Jean and Pat.

Group thing probably good for sharing info. Better live than on-line. I hope everyone isn't letting the stress interfere with some stress relief. Hugs and bisous to Dears Pat and French Patrick. (France wins hands down for new best looking President!!)

I think my first group jo was in San Francisco in the 80's during a leather festival - maybe 100 guys in a converted small industrial building - sofas, pool table, balcony, clothes check. It surprised me that I didn't get hard and didn't find the site of all those guys masturbating - a sign of lack of sexual confidence and that I'm an introvert and lose energy in unstructured groups. I think I eventually got off one on one with my partner...

Since then I've been to a few other jo parties (with similar results) organized workshop experiences (the one with men and women masturbating together was really hot because of the connection with a hot young straight man) and participated in informal jo circles up in the woods behind the gay swimming hole, etc.

My most recent event was the group jo at the Gay Naturist gathering in PA last summer - 75 or so men outdoors in a lot of fluid smaller circles. I was going to practice my multi-orgasmic dry orgasm techniques but then was seduced into a big ejaculation after 15 or 20 minutes!

We have a monthly JO night at one of the gay saunas in town. Many years ago I gathered up the courage to go. I was hesitant even once I got in there as it was a nudity-only rule. No clothes or coverings at all. As a chubby guy it was a nervous experience but once you're in the room with a bunch of other naked guys all doing the same thing it was remarkably comfortable. And to have total strangers come up to touch my cock was a bizarre experience. I did enjoy it and remember a handsome younger dude helping me come to a climax while he whispered dirty stuff into my ear. I think I shot all over the floor and suddenly not at all shy about doing it in a room of other guys. A fun night was had but with a husband now I've not been back.
