Masculinity and the Flaccid Penis in Porn: Part II

Back when I wrote this post on premeditated depictions of flaccid cocks in porn, I had no idea that it would become the second most read post I ever wrote. (The first is this piece of lameness, thanks to searches for "sexy porn star" and the like). First off, I really wasn't sure the post would be well-received (not that I cared), but I certainly was not prepared to discover an entire underworld of people who are seeking out flaccid penises in various contexts on a daily basis. My analysis of the evasion of non-erect penises in media (with much-appreciated assistance from Peter Lehman's excellent book Running Scared: Masculinity and the Representation of the Male Body), and the ways in which, when they appear in porn, they are mediated and embedded in narrative or symbolism is likely not what these avid flaccid-fans are after, but I like to think I have made a much-needed vocalisation of something that is so cruelly marginalized. Furthermore, these searches have shown me (and now you) that there are hundreds of thousands of people out there who, for whatever reason -- curiosity, arousal, education, or a combination of all these things and more -- are seeking out representations of penises in their most common, everyday (but silent and unseen) state.


While the mundane search terms pop up each and every day multiple times, such as...

flaccid men porn
soft penis porn
large flaccid penis
flaccid cock porn
flaccid cock
flaccid penis
flaccid dicks
flaccid men porn
small dick flaccid
soft penis porn

...it was when the search for "how does a non-hard penis look like" popped up that, thanks to it's wonderfully awkward grammar, I decided to start recording these terms day by day. This led to such fabulous search terms as...

penis, black, flaccid
husbands flaccid penis
flaccid cocks erect cocks
softcore flaccid male nudity
plaing [sic] with a flaccid dick
flaccid dick underwear porn
girl playing with flaccid cock
randy spears flaccid
manuel ferrara flaccid
flaccid to erect cock movies
full frontal flaccid penis
hot sexy flaccid soft penis

...and, the delightfully straightforward, "i like seeing flaccid penis in porn." Well, anonymous searcher, so do I, and on that note here is Part II of my dutifully recorded adventures.


Deep Throat (Gerard Damiano, 1972)

It's important not to forget the time-worn classics, so here is this nugget from Deep Throat wherein, after having diligently worked to assist his female clients-cum-nurses, poor Dr. Harry Reems has a poorly cock. Lying in bed, tossing and turning, applying a cool compress to his crotch, Linda Lovelace persuades him to remove his clothes ad reveal the sickly member, tied up in a bandage. Of course, Linda isn't dissuaded, and soon has the good Doctor back in action. This scene is one of a few "sick penis" flaccid scenes, suggesting that a non-erect penis is permissible on film if it is the result of strenuous bouts of sex, during which the penis was very much erect.


Midnight Desires (Shaun Costello, 1976)

I wrote about this excellent vignette film a little while back, and remember my gasps of awe when Jamie Gillis emerged from the locker room, flaccid penis casually slung out of his red sweatsuit. It's an inspiring sight, and easily one of my favourite flaccid moments in porn. It's also a particularly interesting one, as it occurs smack bang in the middle of a highly homoerotic rape sequence.




Private Moments (Gary Graver aka. Robert McCallum, 1983)

This little vignette flick doesn't seem to get much attention, but it's good fun and involves some very witty dialogue, especially between the husband lawyers as they self-indulgently chit-chat around the dinner table while their wives are busy fantasizing. At some point, the fantasies involve a "Guess Whose [sic] Wanger" competition, complete with soft dicks waggling around through holes. Ladies have to explore said "wangers" in order to detect which one is their husband's. It's interesting that in this scene, the unengorged members are dismembered and the subject/object of a joke.


Teenage Twins (Carter Stevens, 1976)

Hope and Prudence are twins with divergent approaches to sexuality in this grimy curiosity. It's become a classic of sorts, thanks perhaps to the casting of real twins, Brooke and Taylor Young, but amply assisted by a plot that involves the Necronomicon. It's also pretty good, especially if, like me, you love flicks centered around shit-talking, sassy women. In this scene, Hope (the sexual and sassy one) is chatting with Jew-fro'd Jason (Todd Davis) in what is perhaps the most prolonged prostrate flaccid shot in adult film history. Quite an accomplishment. No mediation, no bondage, no nuthin. And, trivia fans, Todd's iafd.com photo is from this very scene!


Desires Within Young Girls (Richard Kanter, 1977)

A much-loved but lesser-known classic, featuring a cast of lovelies including Annette Haven, John Leslie, Georgina Spelvin, Paul Thomas, and the man we will be discussing here, Jon Martin. Spelvin is the mother of two gals whom she hopes to marry off to millionaires. Shenanigans ensue (as does an unexpected and applause-worthy ending), including this captivating deflowering scene. It's the two ladies doing the deflowering, while the virgin is Martin, and the whole enticing affair begins with one of he gals tying his soft penis in a delicate, frilly white ribbon. Very cute, and notable as an entry in the rapidly growing "flaccid cocks tied up with stuff" category.


Desires Within Young Girls (Richard Kanter, 1977)

Immediately following the previous scene, things turn all dominatrixy, as The Baroness (Joan Devlon) shows up and promptly wrangles that post-coitus, sleepy prick by pressing her stiletto heel in precariously close quarters (not that Martin seems to mind). This is a more traditional mediated softy than the preceding one, as the domination element justifies the brief initial representation.
