Is cumshots esp facials popular in porn because viewers are already fapping as they watch?

I mean if it was just about visually showing the male porn actor is feeling pleasure from ramming the porn starlet for hours, they would simply show the explosion of cum immediately after the cock is pulled out of the vagina or the girl's mouth. Instead practically all cumshot scenes esp facials has the guy jerking off for a few seconds if not minutes before shooting out and the guy even continues masturbating while jizz is spilling out and afterwards.

It makes me wonder if ending scenes with cumshots esp on the face is so popular specifically because the guy is shown masturbating which is something male viewers are already doing and thus identify with? Esp as sperm is flying out (since so many porn viewers specifically rewatch the ending facial because they seem to want to ejaculate around the same time the porn actor does on the girl's face after some jerking off with hands)? Like viewers wish they were in the actors' shoes while the hot chick is experiencing white liquid splattering all over her face?

Interesting idea, and something to mull over of course.

I tend to get long winded and could write ad nauseum for infinity on the subject, especially when taking under consideration how porn evolved from risque erotica to what we see "today" (i.e. mainstream porn post 90s-gonzo).

Suffice it to say that there are many male perspectives on the subject. For example I have read time and again that, in mainstream porn, if the scene "ends" with the guy "having" to jack himself off to completion, then that was a sign of "non-hetero" activity... Meaning that those who believed in such a statement would suggest that if any "hetero" man should end the porn scene with either the lady stroking him off to the cumshot, or blowing him until he cums, with the man "never" touching" his own dick.

There are numerous other perspectives which could be expanded and liberally discussed about the matter. In the 70s, the "facial" cumshot was not as rare as some would think, but would indeed be principally instigated by the female performer, who would just happen to end the scene by finishing the guy off herself on, or near her face.

The "modern" facial cumshot where the dude jacks himself off on the lady's face started in the 80s but was still a rare occurance in the sence that no self-respecting lady would actively ask for such an act to be performed, and like anal or DP of the time, was a rather "niche" act which was reserved mostly for the "dirtier" performers, for the films which would focus on such activities, such as anal-themed flicks or such. Personnal note: a late 80s film with Raquel Darrian called "Welcum To My Face" which basically barely has mug-shots, so absolute rip-off. But then again, this was the 80s!

In the 90s thanks to Buttman (and slightly later, John Leslie's The Voyeur series) and especially "Rex Borski" and those early Rosebud pictures, gonzo was born and the whole idea of finishing off on a girl's face became more common, and soon enough it was almost "required". If the in the 80s girls who refused anal would be out of the business by the time the 90s rolled in, similarly in the 90s if girls didn't take it in the face, they would soon become extinct. By the mid-late 90s, the trends were shifting, and we saw an exponential increase of depravity, from Inari Vachs' earliest super sloppy drooling blowjobs (which were unheard of, for the most part at the time) to the almost required anal in every scene gonzo video around.

By the time the Y2K hit us, we were already split by the Vivid shot on film condom-clad cum on a butt or belly story-oriented film, to the POV handheld camera strictly focusing on anal, DP, and facial cumshots.

In retrospect, perhaps the idea of a male manually finishing himself off at the end of a scene could be an extention of what the smut producers felt was a necessity in order for the porn consumers to feel, in a way, "connected" to what they were watching on the screen, or maybe it was just the natural "evolution" of what porn had become through the ages.

Needless to say that whatever the intentions may or may not be (as of course everything is purely subjective and open to one's personal interpretations), in the post Y2K, porn has become a veritable industry which caters to almost everyone's niche tastes. Meaning that if a guy does NOT want to see a porn where the guy finishes himself off, well there was always the "About Face" series where the girls would finish the guys off, 99.9% of the time to dismal and forgettable cumshots, to the blowbang scenes where towards the end the guys would be jacking off around a girl (busy blowing 2-3-4 guys and such) and just dropping loads whenever it happened.

Cheers!

Thanks, your explanation and the subject of hetero brought up some light, I would never think of it actually. Almost every finish shot in porn now, be it JAV or western porn, almost always the guy pulls out jerking it off to shoot on to either the face, tits, the back, stomach, and mostly on the face. It was the main event of the movie to have jizz shoot all over the girl, and it's like domination and power of men and etc, whatever you call it. But having said that hetero means once the man does his business it is finished off by the girl/woman regardless of mouth or hands is something to ponder, I cannot recall when was the last time when a girl finish me off as I pulled out from her but there were several occasions where I took her hand and she knew what to do and sometimes I would shove it into her mouth and mouth fucked her till I drop my load in her mouth, most of the time I would pull it out and jerk it off like porn moves to shoot on her tits or armpits (that's my favorite), and if it's anal I'll cum inside.

You did bring about a point, and I'm wondering if the finished shot is done by the girl, does it show the power that the man wants to be in control? or allow the partner to finish him off? beside hetero and non-hetero.

Anway i'll start to be more mindful in my next fuck, and to see how i prefer it and I kinda think of it as in more control when the girl finishes me off and it shows some affection of giving the full pleasure to the men.

The thing to remember is that porn isn't reality.

I see it like athletics: like pro gymnast doing physical sports for the Olympics or something in that vein!

I try to never compare real life sex with that in porn because will most certainly feel like a downfall, or leave one continiously wanting.

Today's generations (i.e. people who grew up with the internet and cell phones) seem to have assimilated the acts seen in porn into their everyday consciousness. "Back in the day" (haha!) guys wouldn't pull out unless asked to do so by the lady. Plus facials were never a "normal thing to do", only on special occasions by people who were already very intimate together.

My own warped sense influenced by porn is that I never see any form of domination towards women at all - in my own sex life that is. Meaning that whatever people interpret within porn material is one thing, but it does not mean that THAT is what it means when in reality (at least for me). Best example: every girl I have ever been with knew that giving her a facial was NEVER a sign of degradation or dominance whatsoever, even if the general porn concessus is that it is (in porn flicks of course).

Finishing yourself off or letting someone else finish you off has always been a question of personal taste. In porn it's because as pornography evolved, it became more apparent that the "connection" between performers was increasingly non-existant.

Take for example old, old, OLD porn from the silent era (i.e. black & white no sound film loops). If you look at the cumshots (when they did happen; they weren't a requisite) guys often did not even jack themselves and neither did the ladies: the guy would just pull out, the ejaculation spurts on a vagina of a butt, and that was it.

It was only when porn became "mainstream" (i.e. in the late 60s/early 70s with "Deep Throat" and "The Devil In Miss Jones" did we start to see that the cumshot was a prerequisite to end a sex scene, and that either the male or female performers would provide manual stimulation.

But there are always exceptions of course. Creampies are exactly that: it's just cumming inside someone so no hands involved. So there isn't necessarly a "norm" in terms of how to finish in porn, it's just that since the 70s and 80s it became important to show the cumshot to end a scene and so the "actors" (performers) were directed to, say, "just pull out and cum".
