Gangbang Etiquette

I'm watching a gangbang right now for review. It's bringing up a whole lot of questions in my mind. This is a lengthy one, not just a few clips online, and it's giving me a lot of time to think about gangbang etiquette. I mean as far as they go, this is a pretty classy one. There's no long line of guys standing around waiting for their turn, there's a set and costumes and not just a bunch of dudes in a living room somewhere, so this could be a lot sleazier than it is. The absence of the oft-scene creepiness of a gangbang is giving me some time to think. There are always some difficulties in logistics and pacing in a gangbang, and seeing how this is going, even though it's well done, is making me think. It seems like the gangbang has its own set of rules, kind of like how the inside of an elevator has its own etiquette. But what IS the code that gangbangers live by?

I mean... At least as pertains to professional gangbangs, not private ones, all these questions popped into my head as I watched this one:

Is it ideal to go first in a gangbang? I guess this depends on the guy and what he's there for, personally, but I wonder if overall it's better to "break the seal" so to speak than to bring up the rear. Maybe it's the opposite: the last one to go is kind of the glory shot. But the first one to go gets to go down on a fresher pussy to get it ready. Which is better? Maybe it's best to be in the middle, actually, where less is expected of you because you're not one of the bookends. Do the guys at the beginning and end get called bookends? Cause they totally should.

Grooming: some guys are shaved and some aren't. Are there rules for this? Should there be?

What do the guys talk about backstage? Do they talk at all? I know some guys actually are professional gangbangers--they do this all the time. They're probably pretty comfortable talking to their fellow fuckers, but I wonder if it's really awkward for first-timers.

How do the big fat guys with tiny penises get in? I don't mean to judge on body types, and generally speaking I like seeing a variety of body sizes in my porn. But in this one there was one guy whose gut was so big that his scrotum seemed to have been eaten by it, and his penis didn't stick out far enough for the lady involved to give him head while having sex with another man. This seems like a pretty important consideration when you're screening people for a gangbang. If your stomach overhangs so far that you can't realistically get head, this is a problem.

Speaking of less-than-perfect specimens... Do less-attractive guys (or the aforementioned fat ones) feel sad when their dick sometimes gets overlooked in favor of a more appealing-looking one? What do they do if they can't get her attention? I'm of two minds about this: 1) in the porno I'm watching now, the men seem almost fearful to step in and force themselves on her, which shows some respect for the woman. And I like that. 2) But they kind of end up looking silly when they just stand there waiting for her to service them. I mean, there are currently like five penises on the screen. She's only one woman, and she can only pay attention to so many members, particularly when one is lodged in her rectum. Maybe guys who are getting overlooked should be their own advocates and work on being a little more aggressive. It makes me feel awkward, sitting here at home, to see a kind of ugly, awkward guy standing there looking useless.

Flaccid penises seem to happen a lot, and that's cool because it makes perfect sense given the circumstances, but do these guys feel bad about their performance? Do they know how hard it is to keep it up on camera? Do they walk away feeling like failures or with an understanding of the obstacles they faced and how well they still did, considering?

For newbies/fans in gangbang situations, a lot of explaining has to be done about how the camera needs to be able to see what's going on. Couldn't they have briefed these guys on the technicalities of porn gangbangs before this moment? It seems odd. I wonder if there is a debriefing of all the men beforehand or if they go in one-by-one and some things get overlooked...

Just how homo-erotic an experience IS a gangbang? Is it at ALL? I wonder...

I think I'll have to locate either a porn performer who does gangbangs, or a guy who does gangbangs, and interview them about this. I'm reeeeally curious. Anyone out there like to offer me some factoids?
