November 2, 1999 - Journal entry

On Friday, I went to Winona to see Arthur and he did not disappoint. We ate at Taco John's where I saw one of my college professors, Donald Salyards. I had two econ classes with him. His favorite saying was, "And here's the kicker..." He wore a personalized apron that said "Dr Don" on it when he was at the chalkboard so as not to get his clothes dirty. I also saw Alvin Smothers; my brothers used to know him.

In the early 90's, one of my younger siblings was outside and saw Alvin on his bike. He knew that Alvin had, shall we see, sexually explicit videos and was interested in having a peek. He barked down the street, "Do some business!!" a number of times. Good fortune smiled upon him as he was able to obtain a vid from Mr. Smothers and watched it...and then watched it again.

One afternoon, he brought the TV into his bedroom to show the vid to a couple of friends in complete privacy (all were pre-pubescent). I listened behind the door and chuckled as one of the friends, partway into the vid, said "Look at her nipples".


After a few months, he destroyed the tape. I think he felt guilty about having it. Like the One Ring, it was corrupting his very soul.

On a related note, Arthur asked me to take him to the adult book and video store that opened in Winona about two weeks ago. I wasn't surprised to see that the videos far outnumbered the books. I told him about the private booths in the back; I had read about them in the paper. I gave him a dollar so that he had five bucks to watch a half hour of any video he wanted.

He chose an "orgy" tape where 20 women waited in line to have sex with one big man. It made me wonder how many women I'd be able to make it through, probably just one. I stepped outside as he went to town. I returned 20 minutes later to see his face beet red. He didn't want to tell his wife about the indiscretion, but was compelled to do so when, much to his chagrin, she wanted to have sex shortly after I dropped him off.

Wait so, was Arthur a friend of yours back then? How old was he when he showed this video to his friends?

Is this from a journal you wrote in... like paper and a pen? (ancient tools from the 1990s)

Extra, I didn't make it clear in the post that it was actually one of my younger brothers who sought after and obtained the video (I've since edited it to better reflect this fact). My brother was around 13 at that time.

This is, indeed, from a actual journal I kept in the late 90's. I mostly wrote in it when there was downtime at my rebate center job.

Teen stories about watching porn... just think what teens have today at their disposal, unreal amounts of free porn. It wil be interesting to see how this open source porn will change males, will it lead to even more objectification of women? It doesn't have to but there is that risk.

Narkissos said...

rock: there is a risk, but mostly for those who wouldn't dare doing it otherwise, like married guyz, who aint gettin enuff so rather watch some naked chicks on the screen and jerk it out....however i think porn's actually contributing to sex crimes....if not, at least they are debasing sex....there are 2 things on this earth that give you the taste of heaven (assuming there's one)making love and becoming a parent....porn is disgusting, cheap, sick and downright obscene....

"porn is disgusting, cheap, sick and downright obscene...."

Its just people having sex, I don't care for it either but its no big deal.

If someone does not like it they can simply not watch it. Stats show no relation to sex crimes and porn. Most experts argue the opposite that it provides sexual release and a medium for fantasy that deviants can use instead of actual deviant sex acts. Of course this makes sense as every male in the world jerks it fantasizing about girls they usually can not have sex with. The alternative for some without this outlet could be rape.

What has created sex crimes is the dirty rep sex has, the taboo behind it. Its just fucking, its just fun. Leave it at that. If its guilt and control for you thats fine too but keep it to yourself.

Men like the fantasy of cheap sex but many don't want to live that life in reality. So they marry, remain faithful, caring and loving in the sack and watch some nasty sluts on video and fantasize in their own time (hence the huge porn market). Who is anyone to say that is wrong? Should they repress those feelings like catholic priests do? Like the priests is it more healthy to actually act those feelings out?

The two most beautiful things? Well I became a parent by having meaningless nasty sex when I was a child. I guess one sick act produced one of Gods miracles huh?

everybody is entitled to an opinion! no need to question anyone's opinion...it’s a post and we all comment.....PERIOD! also nobody should ever have the nerves to tell me to keep it to myself......fay decides what she wansa do.....FYI fay duz not watch them.....I'd rather experience it in real life with a real dude...than watch some gross stuff.....
when people call it "just sex"....they ruin the amour of sex! to me love-making is the ultimate pleasure.....THE essence that makes a relationship thrilling and content...t has to be spontaneous....2 bodies, 2 souls fully devoted to each other.....paying absolute attention to each other....sentient of the sweet presence of each other and nothing else......it’s like they are floating......touching, feeling, kissing and caressing.....the ultimate.....making love.....nothing else matters at that moment....they are on a celestial journey....it’s an unique art created by them……
so 2 or more doing it for money or woteva...faking it...making it totally unreal...is downright vulgar! It is anything but sex...
as for becoming a parent……another blissful experience...how can I not feel love for that tiny li’le bundle of joy? couldn’t care less if I woz a child (17 yrs) or had nasty sex...that kid is mine…..and I love him/her...don’t know about god’s miracle...if only every cheap act could result into wonderful phenomena like that...:)
Ok now for jacking off...if it’s spontaneous, comes naturally...you need it go ahead do it...but when a guy has spouse (wife or girl friend or woteva)...dare him to tell his spouse, “hey honey I am going to that room to jack it off while watching some naked chicks...or while doing sleazy chat with chicks...cuz I feel the urge and you ain't enuff for me” hmm....wonder what the spouse is gonna do eh? OH MY...and how many of the jerking johnsons r actually that brave...hahaha...if she ain’t aware of the naughty trifling...then that’s CHEATING……
sorry tom! my comment is way bigger than you post......:(
