deep playa solo eroticism -- s'ok?

Post by Dust Monkey » Tue Aug 25, 2009 10:35 am

A few years back I was walking the playa late at night, late in the week and encountered this very cool little installation, raised fire pit, three neat tent structures, a pile of wood delivered. While standing by the fire I got sort of hot and bothered... couldn't make my erection go away. The fire, the playa air, the whole thing. It was way out there and I seemed to be totally alone so I whipped it out and got off into the fire. It felt very natural, primal and good. A few minutes after I packed it in several burners arrived... a few on bike, others walking. I don't think they saw me. I'm just unsure if what I did was ok, I wouldn't want to offend anyone, yet it was also a powerful, memorable experience for me. Just wondering.

We don't care if you come, as long as you clean up. We don't care if you clean up, as long as you come.

Well, the art was the tent structures, the fire pit was one of those elevated copper things you can get at target. I don't think I would knowingly ejaculate on someone's art. But I see your point, that's why I asked, thanks for your thoughts. The reference to degrading women was unnecessary, I think.

Wow, I had a nearly identical experience, except I was in a bedroom with the door shut, and my partner was with me! :D

That doesn't sound nearly identical at all. What are you basing "nearly identical" on?

I'm trying for a serious inquiry here, I guess it's not working. Oh well.

If you want a serious answer, ask a serious question.

"Is it ok to masturbate in public and ejaculate wherever?"

Isn't really something that's going to lead to deep conversation.

Alright, the serious answer is this: any type of sex in public is not alright. Solo or with a partner. It does happen and it seems to be tolerated if extremely discreet. If you feel moved so much as to wank on someone's art, I hope they don't spot you and get offended over it.
Some people may have had experiences like this over the years, but it's not really the right thing to be doing.

I don't know, Moxy, plenty of opportunities to get offended on the playa. Stopping public sex won't change that.

Fair enough.

But please quit with the "wanking on art" theme. It was a made in china fire pit and I'm pretty sure all my jiz landed on the coals and vaporized. Geesh. My conditioned response is to feel shame, but I won't, because I didn't wank on the art.

If I had done it on those tents, which I'd never do, you'd have an argument. But your theatrics are appreciated.

You want serious opinions, here's mine:

Unless you were beyond 100% positive you were alone, then and for however long you'd need, and you were 100% and the people whom's space/fire you were at/ejaculating would not mind such a thing, what you did was not OK.

"couldn't make my erection go away"

Baloney.

As with many other questions, this comes down to what's consensual. You doing your thing on the deep playa is basically consensual, unless people can see you and/or you leave any sort of a mess - which would then be non-consensual for the people who encounter you/it. It's pretty easy to guess that a lot of people are squicked by seeing guys getting off, and even more by the prospect of touching your left-overs.

BTW the cops are all over and have night-vision, and even though that would be consensual if they were looking for you, it still might result in an indecency citation.
What goes around, comes around.

Yep. Not to mention, there are children present. I don't know what Nevada laws are, but in S.C. if you pee in the woods while hanging out at the river, and there's a family over on the rocks, you'll get a citation from the cops for public exposure/indecency.

I won't try to defend what I did. I've gotten a clear, tho sarcastic, response from people... and that's all I really wanted (not the sarcastic part). Thanks to all.

I guess by the nature of the question, it begged for a bit of sarcasm. I will tell you that during one of the more intense dust storms a few years back, I was so moved as to take off all my clothes and dance insanely while laughing at the wind. Yes, crazy things happen and the magic of the moments can cause you to do silly things.
I hope that through the sarcasm, you got the answer to your question.
See you on the playa! :D

Honestly, this was something I was curious about. Despite what I've read in the survival guide, I have also been told not to be surprised if I find people having sex in public.

You know, I wish people could leave it at that.

In the spirit of transparency, I'll go ahead and confess I also am a fan of deep Solo eroticism.

I think the answer to my question is that I took an inappropriate risk of impacting the sensibilities of those around me should they have discovered me. True enough.

I regret using the term "whip it out" because it really wasn't like that, and yes, I could have stopped myself. It was more the spontaneous expression in a magical moment that you describe, but of course, more taboo, even out there, and back then, when it was a much smaller event. Haven't done anything like that since, and now won't again. Besides, things can't be duplicated.

Come to think of it though, that same year, I stood at gAASo and watched person after person have full orgasms right on the playa. Is there a fine line here? Is there a difference? It's definitely confusing if you bother to ponder it.
