What Is The Appeal Of Group Sex?

Every time I look on a porn website, there’s always the same type of video in the “what people are watching right now” section… and when I say “watching” we all know we mean “wanking to”.

Honestly, every single time there is a video of group sex going on, or even a gangbang. I don’t see the appeal in these videos. I never have done. To me, they are just a complete fantasy that isn’t likely to happen, right? So what is it about group sex that turns people on so much?

The fantasy

One of the big reasons that people enjoy watching these videos is that it is part of a fantasy. As I mentioned earlier, the kind of videos you see online aren’t likely to happen in real life. That is precisely why people want to watch these videos, so they can experience the fantasy in some way.

A lot of porn is fake, and even the amateur stuff is carefully staged to make it seem like these things just happen naturally. They don’t, which is why the porn gangbangs and group sex are so popular to watch.

The idea that one woman or lots of women are hungry for men’s cock that they will just take any that comes there way makes men excited. They fantasise what it would be like to be in that group, going up to one of the hottest women there and watching her sink to her knees in front of you.

Taboo

Some people have a hard enough time admitting that sex between two consenting adults happens. They think that, as soon as the door closes, people simply go to sleep, and if you do anything else you’re a deviant.

Having sex with more than two other people is wrong, which makes it a taboo subject. Making something taboo just makes it even more sexy and appealing.

Group sex is very secretive. It is something that happens in someone’s home when everyone is feeling really horny, and when you are out in public with others you simply smile because you know what happened. This and the taboo nature are part of the appeal.

A more intense threesome

Men love the idea of a threesome. Women also love the idea of a threesome. It is a sexual fantasy of many, and the thought of having two hot men or two sexy women doing whatever they want to you is enough to make anyone horny.

With group sex, you are simply adding more people to the equation. More people means more attention for you, especially in the case of gangbangs.

However, with so many people involved you will have a hard time guaranteeing that the attention is shared equally. Instead, the men become far more focused on their own pleasure and seeing just how many women they can fuck, and so the needs of the women in these groups are ignored and forgotten about. That is not a turn on. If anything, it’s a turn off. Why would you not want to enjoy the sex?

Not a new idea

Group sex isn’t a new idea by any stretch of the imagination. It has been popular for a long time, most notably when the Roman Emperor Tiberius decided to have a get together. He ruled between 14 AD and 37 AD, which is a long time ago.

When he had his parties, he enjoyed seeing spintriae going on. For those who don’t know, spintriae is another name for daisy chain. Basically a daisy chain is formed when a line of people joins up in “sexual union”, usually front to back or one end to the other.

The actual numbers of those involved isn’t certain, but it is believed that around 30 or so men and women would be involved. That’s quite a lot!

Biggest orgy recorded

30 people all having sex in a row at the same time might sound impressive, but it isn’t anywhere near the record for the biggest orgy ever.

Recently in Japan they decided to try and achieve the biggest orgy ever recorded, and so got together a lot of people and someone to count those participating. There were 250 couples involved in this orgy, which puts Tiberius to shame.

So it isn’t just 250 people having sex, it is instead 250 couples. That’s 500 people in the same room having sex. Wow!

Changed your mind?

After reading all of this, I still don’t get the appeal of group sex. For me, it is just seems like there would be too many people doing too much.

When I have sex, I prefer to share the attention with my partner, instead of with a room full of people all eager to stick their dick in as many holes as possible.

It doesn’t seem particularly safe, and even if those there do have condoms, they will be constantly changing them to protect those involved and themselves. Not the most romantic or sexy thing to do!

How do you feel about this topic? Do you understand the appeal of group sex and am I just being blind to the appeal, or do you also prefer one on one sex? You can use the comment box below to share your thoughts, or you can see what others are saying over on the Escort Norway forum.
