Self-editing is overrated. Or is it?

The sexiest thing that you'll ever see that involves no nudity.

All right. This next post is not exactly NSFW, but if you have those kinds of issues, you might just glance around before going further, or you may have some splainin' to do otherwise.

So we all know what the internet is really for, which is porn, of course. But what is porn exactly anyway? Traditionally, it's images of people having sex, but in this high tech world we live in now, well....let's just say things have gotten a little more complicated.

Which is why something like the website Beautiful Agony is kinda refreshingly simple and perfect, if you think about it.


OK, so the premise is pretty simple: it's videos of people masturbating. However! You can only see them from the neck up! That's right, no nudity, just their face. That's it. These are not professional actors, these are just real people in real places. Men and women. Separately, and occasionally together. They are not paid for their performance.

As if that wasn't enough, there's also a section called "Confessions" where the people tell what the circumstances were when they made the video.

What's it all like? Well, it's a wide variety of things, as you can imagine. It's occasionally sexy, it's occasionally bizarre, it's occasionally "Jesus, what the hell is going on down there?". It's an experience, let me tell you.

Since I first experienced this concept through a music video by a band from Columbus, Ohio called The Sun, I'm gonna put that video here first. While I'm on the fence about the music, the editing is kinda great, and it's a pretty compelling thing to watch.



OK, now that you've seen that, here's what it's really like in context. Don't say I didn't warn you! Choose your format below the picture.

OK, NSFW means "not safe for work". It's internet slang. Go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NSFW

And, oh my god, Scotty, that is the funniest thing I've ever seen. Well done.

Nice.

I'd love to do one of these, but the last thing I need is to see myself making an orgasm face. It's all I can do to put on my make up in the mirror.

Funny, I've known about that site for sometime...as well as it's sister site..."ifeelmyself.com". But I bet you probably already assumed that, didn't you?
