Load 2013-1 & 2013-2
This was a really weird year for gangbangs at MAL (Mid-Atlantic Leather). One of my readers suggested that I may be a victim of my own success – I’ve advertised MAL as a good place for sex parties and as a result tons of bottoms show up and schedule their own gangbangs and tops have too many choices – so there’s fewer tops at each gangbang and fewer loads given.
IMHO, there were too many bottoms at MAL this year and not enough tops. Apparently DC is a city of bottoms – people joked about how many of the “versatile tops” are actually total bottoms. But there were lots of out-of-towners too. Wherever they came from, the number of “gangbangs” at any given time was rather amazing. At one point I was getting emails asking if I had canceled my gangbang for the evening because people didn’t see it on the first page of parties listed in BBRT – it was well onto the 2nd page there were so many scheduled.
The competition among bottoms was pretty intense. Of of my favorite bottoms came down from NYC and scheduled 2 or 3 gangbangs for himself. Between those parties and 1-on-1 hookups he only got 12 loads. Hell, I’ve had gangbangs in the past where bottoms walked away with 15+ loads just from the one gangbang. And I’ve known bottoms who got 100+ loads over a weekend.
I was trying to sorta have a theme of neg gangbang bottoms this year. That didn’t always happen and I did have some poz guys in the mix. But I wonder if one of the reasons why my gangbangs weren’t as popular this year was because my guys tended to be more “average”. I’ve seen it before – “hot” bottoms are popular. A few years ago there was a gaggle of tops following a particularly hot bottom down the hall seeing which room he’d end up in. So unfortunately, in order to compete in the highly competitive gangbang market that MAL has become I guess I’m going to have to prioritize “hot” bottoms. I put it in quotes because hot is such a subjective word. But what I mean is the jocks with tight bodies that everyone seems to want to fuck – or guys somewhat close to that ideal.
I already talked a bit about the Thursday gangbang. That was chaotic due to picking bottoms at the last minute. But to my point – the lean jockish bottom got half the loads given (5), and the sk8r twink came in 2nd with 3 loads. The guys who came off more as “sex pigs” got one and two loads. Of course it helped that the jockish bottom got there first and was the only bottom at the very beginning.
Still over 140 people had said they wanted to come to the gangbang. Usually I’d expect about 50 tops in a case like that (1/3rd). But only 27 showed up, and only 11 loads were given (including mine – and I’m not counted in the 27). So only about 1/3rd of the tops that showed up gave a load – that’s pretty bad…
It seemed morning gangbangs had better ratios, but smaller numbers. The Friday morning gangbang had 7 guys show up, and 6 loads were given. That’s a good ratio. The Monday morning gangbang 3 tops showed up and 2 loads were given. Actually two tops were turned away ’cause they arrived too late… One of them was actually really cute… Maybe I should have extended it for him 😉
Friday night 14 tops showed up, but only 4 loads were given – that’s fewer than 1 in 3… In that case the bottoms were a bearish/cubbish guy and a Latino with a bit of a sex pig vibe to him. That gangbang was actually a complete disaster. There were tons of spectators. If there had been a critical mass of true tops I would have thrown out all the spectators, but there wasn’t, and every now and then one of the spectators would join in. Then this gaggle of 20-somethings showed up. The funny part was I had thought for the orgies I had scheduled that anyone who showed up in just a jockstrap would be a good participant. But all the 20-somehthings were just wandering the halls in their underwear or in a jockstrap. They had no intention of getting fucked (or fucking). They were just exhibitionists and wanted to jack their dicks and suck each other’s cocks while watching sex pigs fuck. For god’s sake – MAL is not a spectator sport…
It was after that gangbang that I decided to definitely cancel the afternoon orgies I had planned. There were many reasons for cancelling, but one of the core ones was that I just didn’t want to have parties for that crowd of 20-somethings who weren’t really going to participate. Actually seeing all that and thinking about it really helped. In the future I probably will organize orgies and I’ll have a rather strict door. Thing is, even that is difficult… There’s a bottom in one of the later gangbangs who was as cute and twinky as they come, but he was also an excellent pig…
It’s too bad Friday night’s gangbang was such a failure. Both the bottoms were neg. The bearish guy had actually started PrEP a few months before. The piggy guy used to be more of a top and had recently gotten into bottoming and it was clear he was going whole hog on the bottoming… Monday just before I left I went over to his room to retrieve a hood I had lent him – the room was almost completely dark and there was a guy fucking him. So basically he had become one of those bottoms who turns off the lights (or wears a hood) and just lets anyone breed his ass.
Anyway moving on… Saturday’s gangbang had a MUCH better vibe. The guys who came were there to fuck and breed. It wasn’t a big gangbang. If I understand PortaUrinal’s notes (he was keeping track of numbers) – it seems 10 guys came and 10 1/2 loads were given. (There were more loads than tops because my boy for the weekend gave a load before he left for work). So every top who came gave a load (how it should be). Though one top didn’t want to fuck – I wanted him to cum on a bottom’s ass and I’d push it in, but he insisted on cumming on the bottom’s face. I scooped up a little of it and lubed my cock with it and shoved it in the bottom’s hole. So it wasn’t much of a load – probably more like 1/10th or 1/20th of a load. Still, all the tops gave a load.
For that gangbang I brought back the hot poz Latino from the first gangbang. He got another 5 loads. And then there was this very hot bug chasing jock. It was odd though… For one reason or another the bug chasing jock just wasn’t into me. I mean I fucked him, but he seemed continually distracted. The first time I fucked him he started sucking a guy’s dick and was paying more attention to the dick in his mouth than my dick in his ass. The second time he kept moving around. It’s possible his being so distracted was because he was on something. The only tops who really had a good time with him were ones who were extremely controlling. Actually my boy fit into that category – he was all over the bottom like white on rice and forced him to do what he wanted. I’m not really like that when I fuck.
So it was good gangbang, but 5 loads for each bottom means it wasn’t a great gangbang – there just weren’t enough tops.
Sunday’s gangbang got 14 tops to show up, but only 4 loads were given – and that includes my load, and I wasn’t counted in the 14. That’s a lame ratio – just barely better than 1 in 5 tops gave a load. So it was the same in terms of attendance and loads as the Friday failure, but at least this time there was lots of fucking going on. A lot of black guys showed up for some reason which gave the gangbang a very interracial tone, but the problem was I don’t think any of the black guys came. I think they were more into each other than into the designated bottoms. At one point one of them was sucking the other. I put a stop to that when they started fucking and the top went back to fucking one of the designated bottoms.
Actually, just finding bottoms for this gangbang was a challenge. I had two guys lined up and confirmed, but neither of them showed up. Then there were two guys who were really interested – I told them to come around the start time and if I needed a bottom they could bottom. So there I was 5 minutes before the start with no bottoms. The one good thing about there being too many bottoms at MAL is that it wasn’t hard to find bottoms at the last minute.
The first bottom to show up had been a top at one of my other gangbangs. He filled in as a bottom initially but when he wasn’t getting any loads and the tops migrated to other bottoms he bowed out as a bottom, acted as a top for a bit and then left. Then there was a stocky Latino with long hair who came over. He had said his hole was sore and he didn’t know if he could take very much. I fucked him and his hole did the job and got me to cum after days of not being able to cum with my cub. But then almost no one else was interested in him since he’s such a particular type – so eventually he left.
One of the bottoms who was supposed to be at my Saturday gangbang but didn’t make it (’cause of communication issues), wound up coming to the Sunday gangbang. He’s a hot lean jock with a bit of a punk edge to him. He managed to get 3 loads. Given that only 4 loads were given, that says something. He was neg and chasing.
Last to show up was this deaf guy. The gay deaf community is pretty small in DC, but given that Gallaudet isn’t far away, there are more deaf guys in DC than you might expect. I noticed them the first night when we went out to a bar for drinks. In fact, I think I saw the particular guy who showed up – he’s totally my type and sorta stood out in the crowd to me. The guy had a bit of an innocent look to him, but looks can be deceiving – he got right in there and went to work sucking dick and offering his ass to tops. Unfortunately he got there a bit late and the guys who fucked him were just doing marathon fucking. He got fucked good, but didn’t get any loads. I was a little disappointed I came so soon that night. I did fuck him, but not as much as I would have liked since I had just cum and my dick wasn’t completely cooperating.
So all, not the best weekend for gangbangs. Either the turn out was small, or tops weren’t giving loads, or both. I think next year I’ll stick closer to the “hot jock” type – they seem to be the most popular with the tops – they definitely get the most loads.
