The facial is overrated. Let me explain.
Not long after we married (in 2000), Lauren and I were watching an adult film; enjoying erotica together was an occasional indulgence for us in the early years of our marriage. Some videos we liked; some we didn’t. (We don’t really watch porn anymore; we prefer to make our own with our cameras).
In this particular video, we got to a scene culminating in the guy pulling his cock out of the woman’s mouth and then ejaculating a huge amount of semen all over her face to her delight. We’d seen this happen in other videos, but this particularly gratuitous “cum shot” caught Lauren’s attention.
“Why did he do that?” Lauren asked as we watched (while quite handsy with each other). “Wouldn’t he have rather cum in her mouth? Isn’t that what guys like when they’re getting a blowjob?”
Lauren has always been generous with swallowing and just assumed from her own experience giving me blowjobs that it’s what the guy in the video would have wanted over ejaculating on the woman’s face.
“I don’t know, baby,” I responded, enjoying her foreplay handjob while I stroked her moist pussy. “It looks sexy, but I’d think he’d prefer it in her mouth for sure.”
“Hmmmmm,” she countered, and we continued watching.
In the next scene, the guy pulled his cock out of the woman’s vagina and did the same thing, spraying her face with his cum as she giggled.
“There it is again,” she said. “Why?”
No sooner could I respond with, “I don’t know,” than Lauren started sucking my dick.
I repositioned myself, getting on my knees next to my Swedish bride as she was on her side. With the video playing in the background, she took my cock back into her hungry mouth and looked longingly up at me, leaving little doubt that her end game was a mouthful of sperm she’d happily swallow.
The point of this story isn’t to recount this particular blowjob, one of thousands she’s given me over the years. It was great. The point is to discuss what it led to: a facial. When she knew I was about to cum, Lauren took my cock from her mouth—still working my shaft back and forth with her hand—looked me in the eyes and said, “Cum on my face and then tell me if you like that better than me swallowing.”
The cum was quickly building in me and she stuck out her tongue and looked into my eyes in anticipation, still jerking me off. I’d never seen my wife stick out her tongue in this way; it really turned me on.
With our eyes locked on one another, I unleashed a tidal wave of warm semen all over her tongue and face, making a mess of my Nordic beauty. This would surely require a shower to clean up, and yet she seemed to like it and giggled. She swallowed what I’d shot on her tongue and giggled again.
“Well?” she asked, her face slathered with my creamy, white seed.
“Fun,” was all I could get out as I came to from a near blackout. “Lots of fun. Very naughty. But I feel bad—your face and hair are a mess, baby.”
She giggled again.
“It’s OK. I wanted to shower anyway.”
Now two decades later, we are hardly strangers to the facial. It happens occasionally depending on our mood.
I should state how we define a facial: Lauren’s mouth is open and her tongue out and my semen is shot onto her tongue, in her mouth and on her face. She has never gotten a facial without her mouth open and tongue out (if her mouth were closed, I think that would be quite degrading.) Most of the time with a facial, the semen is on her chin, lips, tongue, cheeks, nose, maybe forehead, and sometimes hair. It can be a small mess and, other times, a big mess requiring a shower. Only on a few occasions has it hit her eyes. Eyes are a no-no, and I make every effort to avoid them.
Although the facial is a lot of fun, I still prefer to cum in her mouth and pussy. Why do I say that when so many guys are obsessed with the facial? Physically speaking, ejaculating in Lauren’s mouth or vagina feels significantly better than ejaculating on her face. In fact, ejaculating in her vagina feels better than ejaculating in her mouth, but ejaculating in her mouth feels much better than on her face. In fact, the facial comes in fourth place behind 1) in her pussy, 2) in her mouth, and 3) in her ass.
So why is there such fascination with the facial? For starters, it has been popularized in porn. Here are other possible reasons:
It’s an alternative to swallowing. Some women refuse to swallow, and some won’t even let a guy cum in their mouth, so instead, they may allow him to cum on their face. I don’t know what percentage of women refuse to swallow, but I know every single one of Lauren’s friends swallows their husband’s cum. (They share these things with each other.) The facial, then, is an alternative to getting a mouthful of salty, bitter semen for women who can’t handle that.
It’s highly visual. Guys are visual and one thing about the facial that is fun is the incredible visual afforded when semen is being shot all over their woman’s face. It is fun to do and watch. Lauren and I have more than a few facials caught on camera that are truly epic, including one from 2004 that is in the hall of fame for us. (It was a very big load, the lighting and angle were perfect, and Lauren loved it).
It’s an act of dominance. This one is complicated. Although Lauren and I believe deeply in equitable sex, she will be the first to tell you that there are times when she wants to be dominated and, in her words, “objectified.” The facial can sometimes be part of that desire. I suspect many women have this desire at times—many of Lauren’s friends do.
It’s kinky and slutty. Lauren sometimes enjoys being treated like my whore. If she’s in a slutty mood, it means she wants to be treated like I own her. This isn’t always the case; like I said, most of the time sex is very equitable for us. But sometimes she just wants me to get off on her, and thus she can really desire a facial.
It’s a way for a guy to mark his “territory.” It may seem primitive, but there are theories that, when a man ejaculates on his woman, it’s an instinctive way of him marking his “territory.”
Don’t misunderstand me. Do I enjoy giving my wife a facial? Yes. Would I rather cum in her pussy? Yes. Would I rather cum in her mouth? Yes. Would I rather cum in her ass? Depends on my mood but cumming in her ass does feel better, physically speaking.
Please, in the comments share your own experience with the facial, whether giving or receiving.
