10 BToItM in the 00's, #10: Porn Blogs

Are they true? Are they false? Do I care? My dick sure doesn't. Nor does my imagination.

I'm not talking about blogs that show you a bunch of naked fellows for you to click on so you can be transferred to some professional or amateur or pro amateur site and pay money. I'm talking about those brave souls who have been creating online diaries about who they fuck and when and how.

Aside from the sheer titillation provided by these sites, they also supply endless fascinating questions of authorship on the Internet. To me it's utterly irrelevant whether the people who write these blogs exist -- fiction or non- they can still perform their function. But the idea of all these unreliable narrators either confessing personal secrets or weaving elaborate alter egos is sometimes more titillating than the porn itself. For me, it all started with The Great Cock Hunt and Completely Naked. Unfortunately, both of those boys have retired and are now just posting pics of cute men, but check out their archives, 'cause it'll all be new to you! My readership got a little dirtier with Matt and Dan's Sexual Adventures and a little cleaner with Afterthoughts on a Whirlwind Journey.

What's that you say? That last one isn't a sex blog? No. It's not, but it's still a porn blog. Reading the private, inner thoughts of a closeted Christian struggling with his attraction to men (Whose love will he pick Jesus or another man's? Will he realize that it's not an either/or decision?) is totally pornographic. Totally.

An honorable mention -- totally connected to the porn blog thing -- is the book The Sluts (2005) by Dennis Cooper. It's an amazing piece of fiction that is as much about identity on the Internet as it is about sex and fantasy.
