“One last drink, please.” Last words on deathbed, Jasper Newton “Jack” Daniel (1849-1911, American distiller and founder of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey Distillery).
The orgy was BYOB. And so, at home, I located three empty Gatorade bottles and filled them with Jack Daniels and coke, my absolute favorite drink. I put them in my back sack, along with the other things one should always bring to an orgy: condoms, lube, poppers, some water, a tab of Viagra, and tic tacs to be oh so fresh.
The orgy was invite only. I’d been to one of them before, the month previous. It had been held at a bathhouse in the Village, where they had cordoned off a section for the orgy invites. But tonight, for the first time, the organizers had found a space in a warehouse for the party.
I showed up at 11:30 PM and was greeted by Dominic, one of the organizers, who gave me a kiss and to whom I paid the $20 entrance fee. Dominic, a bearded leather dude in his thirties, had flogged me at the previous orgy – something I’d never before experienced. He promised to give me some new experiences tonight and pointed me in the direction of the coat racks. To my surprise, just left of Dominic, were two men from a local safe-sex organization, standing at a table filled with safe-sex brochures and lots of condoms and lube. They were there to answer any questions we might have about how to play safe and I thought, This is damn well organized.
At the coat racks, I hung up my winter coat and started to undress. This orgy had a strict dress code: leather, rubber, jocks or you could be completely naked (“No deodorants or cologne please!”). Tonight I would be wearing a leather jock, a leather ballcap, army boots and my black rubber wristband that sported two yellow stripes indicating my penchant for watersports.
I grabbed the first of the three bottles I’d brought of Jack and coke and headed into the main area. It was tricked out with BDSM equipment I don’t even know the names for. The room was dimly lit with a red sleazy glow, and a blue strobe light flashed psychedelic patterns along the far wall. A cage was set to the right. The room was already populated with about eight men, and we each found a spot to pose and preen, to eye each other and sip from the drinks we’d all brought.
I stayed that night for three hours. The room only filled to about a maximum of twenty men, and I regret to inform you that I didn’t really feel attracted to most of them. In attendance was a slave owned by the organizers. He wore a sign that said if we wanted to play with him, we needed permission from the organizers. Dominic’s partner, Cory, gave me this permission. I approached the slave and...we talked. I have a distinct need to know that my sex partner is attracted to me in order to have fun, and I felt that if I played with the slave, he would be doing it out of duty rather than pleasure. In hindsight, perhaps that’s the key: perhaps his duty was his pleasure. But instead, I interviewed him about what it meant to be a slave, what his life was like. Our conversation intrigued me, though I wonder if he questioned who let this leather-wearing Barbara Walters into the party.
By the second Jack and coke, I was sufficiently inebriated enough to doff my leather jock and enjoy the sensation of simply walking around naked, save for the leather ball cap and boots. I watched men get fisted and fucked. I dipped my toe in the water by letting my hands caress men as they caressed me. But it was Dominic who came through for me in the end. At my third Jack and coke, Dominic found me and led me to a separate room where he tied my stiff cock and balls up with a soft, forty-foot long rope. Once it was completely tied, he pulled fast on the rope and it quickly unravelled, which set my cock bouncing and vibrating. The sensation was one of pleasure and pain. The slave joined the room and Dominic slipped on a condom and began to fuck him, while I sat on the floor licking the slave’s balls (his cock was locked up in a chastity device). After a moment, I stood and the slave took my cock in his mouth. Dominic pulled out of the slave, took off the condom, and made me suck him off. With his cock in my mouth, he let go a stream of piss. Like a champ, I devoured every single drop.
I left soon after. I had to walk home, as the subway had stopped running by that point, but I didn’t live so far – just the equivalent of three subway stops. When I reached home though, did I go to bed? No sir, I did not. I poured another Jack and coke.
At the orgy, I’d taken half a Viagra, just for insurance against nerves getting the better of me. I’d also brought my trusty pill bottle filled with a week’s worth of cum, in case I had a notion to play with it at the orgy. But that didn’t happen. So now at home, I decided to continue the party alone, downed the second half of the Viagra and started to edge, pouring the cum over my face and pits and cock.
How many drinks did I consume before I finally hit the bed? I don’t know, but I do know that in the wee hours of the morning, I was lying in a wet spot. Evidently, I’d pissed the bed. Tragic? Not so much. I have a cover for the mattress for piss play anyway. I had been having erotic dreams, and only half awake, my hard dick made its presence known. I lazily rolled onto my stomach, pressing my cock into the wet sheets.
But this is the turning point. When you wake up soaked in your own piss after a bacchanalian night of revelry, you have to decide whether to feel shameful about it, or to feel that you’ve simply had quite a wild night. I chose the latter and fell back to sleep.
When I awoke at three in the afternoon, I was hung over, but not of the headache variety. I was rather still drunk. And more to the point, I was intensely horny. I got up and put on the kettle for some coffee to bring me back to the sober Jason that had to return phone calls and iron his work clothes for the week. But while waiting for the water to boil, wearing only my underwear, I pressed my cock against the edge of the kitchen counter and I knew that my ironing would have to wait.
I was in a delicious booze haze and my cock wanted my full attention. Now I was the slave, and rubbing my cock felt like an emergency. I checked the fridge – all out of cola. But I had lots of Jack. Jumping in the shower, I rushed to ready myself to go out into the world for a brief, alcohol-dazed moment. I ran – not walked, ran – to the grocery store kitty corner to my apartment block and bought cola and ran back to my apartment where I hastily poured a drink, shed my clothes, lit a cigarette, turned on some heavy metal, and positioned myself in front of the mirror. I had everything I needed to edge, and I readied myself for that first, cataclysmic grab of my crotch. In a hypnotic state, I rubbed my hand around my crotch over and over and over again, watching this in the mirror, in a state of religious ecstasy. It was a communion with the earth, with my cock, my brain, my cock, the universe, my cock, my male brothers, my cock, my soul, my cock, my infinity. Hyperbole, you ask? If only. I thought of the events at the orgy and it was as if the memory of the night was more powerful to me than the actual experience of it.
I eventually lost my erection, changed the sheets on my bed and fell into a twelve hour sleep. Awaking for work the next morning, I felt still a little out of it, but not too bad. Once again, while waiting for water to boil, I pressed my crotch against the kitchen counter and thought to myself “What a weekend.”
But a lost weekend? Or did I find something? What I experienced on that weekend was not a regular event that occurs every week. Even still, I had to start asking questions (as is my wont). Am I an alcoholic? I only drink when my cock is involved. If I go out to dinner with friends, I have no desire for a drink, since it’s a social occasion and not a cock occasion.
But alcohol is part of every jack off, every sex experience. So is alcohol just a tool I use to support my sex addiction? Sex addiction is too large a subject to discuss in this essay. I will come back to that another time. The bottom line is that booze fuels my sexuality. Why is it that when watching porn sober, it all seems fairly ridiculous. When sober, I see the performers and wonder if they are happy and safe, whether they are only in it for the money or whether they get any pleasure from performing. When drinking, it’s all hot and horny.
Years ago, I had sex with a man who was a recovering alcoholic. He welcomed me to drink until I was hammered, as he put it. I asked him if he missed drinking during sex and he said that sober sex was so much better. I’m still not sure if I understand how that could be. Is it that you can be fully present in a way you aren’t when drinking? Are you more apt when sober to feel a truer connection to your partner? Does alcohol give one the impression of loosening you up when really it shuts something down?
Most of the topics for this blog occur to me when I’m having a drink and masturbating. The little booklet I write my ideas down in is stained with lube, my pens all sticky. But I always write these essays sober. Sober now as I write, I wonder if I’m peering into the rabbit hole by letting alcohol be such a steadfast part of my sexual behavior. Or have I already fallen in? Addiction, to sex, to alcohol, are topics to discuss later. For now I leave you with this...
Jack Daniel never married, never had children. And so I wonder – was he an earlier incarnation of a man like me?
