Bukkake

One of the most controversial and talked about form of group sex in today’s culture is the sexual act of bukkake. Bukkake is the act in which multiple men at one-time climax and ejaculate on a single woman or man. This often is prevalent in the Japanese culture, where it originated in the late 1980s.

The actual event itself has evolved quite a bit from the original interpretation. Originally it was only one dumping the load of semen on the female role’s facial area, however in most of today’s interpretations of Bukkake, the female is shot with multiple streams from multiple men at the same time in order to create a much more dramatic effect that will entertain a greater audience that demands more shock factor.  Since then, Bukkake has, to many people’s surprise, spread across the world in a viral fashion and can be found in an increasingly high amount of pornographic films. Today the act is being popularized by the gay community, in which multiple men will stand above another man and ejaculate over a single man remaining still at the ready.

While the originating idea of where Bukkake initially sprung out of is unknown, many people speculate that the Japanese cultural focus on facial beauty is to blame for starting to have the feminine characters being focused on while being ejaculated on from above. This allows the facial beauty of the feminine actor to be emphasized despite being humiliated, symbolizing that the beauty will shine through. Up until the mid-2000s, Bukkake seemed to be somewhat of a taboo and did not have much of a backing the porn entertainment industry.

This trend finally gained traction when several European porn filming agencies began implementing the act of Bukkake into their films, and popularity then spread across the continent rapidly. While many men seem to appeal to Bukkake’s emotional and visceral sense of dominance over the feminine character, feminists and women across nations have banded together to oppose the idea of using the act in pornographic films. For this reason, the popularity has been halted in the United States, as many Americans according to opinionated research, do not believe in the degradation and objectification of women.

While many pornographic filming agencies in the United States have begun to use Bukkake in their films, it has not gained the mass appeal that the European and Asian porn markets have experienced on a widespread national level. However, as technology and public opinion evolves by the day, many pornographic historians speculate that Bukkake will finally gain traction among the American public with time, with the rationale being that eventually the morals and status quo of the American culture will be so degraded that anything will go, and Bukkake will have its place as it did in the rest of the world.
