It was 11 a.m. on Sunday morning, and the masturbatorium was quiet. The chairs in the voyeur section were mostly empty, just a few early birds in the front row. I slipped off my flip-flops and crossed behind the rope, into the area of the room that would soon be live-streamed onto the Internet.
I had decided I would start with the man in the farthest corner of the room. He was willing to talk, so I settled down on a pillow near his head. I was wearing a dress, so I did this carefully, knees together, like a lady.
"You're pretty," the man observed as I opened my laptop. He told me he was glad the paper had sent a young female reporter.
Yeah, we did that on purpose, I told him.
The man's name, for today, would be "Joe." He had a slight Virginia accent, but right now, he lived in Vegas. He was a white guy, with thin legs, short, gray hair and rosy cheeks. "Joe" hadn't done much to prepare for today, he told me, except take a shower.
Typing busily, I asked him to talk about his background and what had brought him here today.
Joe told me he was an exhibitionist. He liked women to watch him masturbate. Like me, for instance. Even though I was clothed, that was okay.
Joe wasn't clothed at all.
"Am I the first guy you've interviewed while he's 'necking'?" he asked, rubbing his dick enthusiastically.
