Watching yourself

Postby Maky » Wed Jan 24, 2018 11:53 pm

I’m sure a lot of you put a mirror in front of you to see yourself while playing. I currently use a Kinect and an Xbox to do that since I kinda get a better view. what do you guys usually use to watch yourself while toying?
Sharing/giving recommendations on what gets that good POV would be nice

I typically use a tall mirror I have in my room. It's not attached to anything so I can put it wherever I feel like. I've also used a strategically placed phone to record myself.

I have a mirror in my bedroom that I sometimes use, and I have a shaving mirror— with lights!— in my shower that I've also used when toying. When I'm getting super-serious and have lots of spare time, I've been known to use both the bedroom mirror and the shaving mirror, the latter angled so that I can get a good look at the toy and my tortured hole. I have two digital cameras, one new and an older one, and I have gorillapods for both; I've sometimes attached those to the bedframe at different angles so I can watch myself later. I was daring enough, once to post one of the videos I took, but most of them show my face or too many other clear details, and I've kept them just for my own, um, pleasure.

I record myself on my phone! That way I can see myself on my screen, use it for later masturbation material (a little weird I know, but if it works it works) and send it to my boyfriend when he's alone. Watching yourself really makes the cumlube that more worth it :misc12:

That’s my same deal! Not really into recording but seeing the cumlube drip out is so satisfying. I’ll probably get a gopro for my bday and stream it to my laptop or tv. I personally think watching yourself in a bigger screen rather than in a mirror is Way better :widesmile:

I've got a small "camping" mirror. It's supposed to be harder to break, so I guess that's good? It has an easel stand but it's hard to position and keep in position and it's also really small.

Those light up ones intrigue me. Although that would be yet another thing to get batteries for/keep charged. *grumble*

I've never recorded myself. I don't think I would be into watching that later. But that's just me.

I have wondered how common "watching yourself" was, though...

I remembered that in my later teens I used to put a mirror to watch "how it looks like". But is a long time since I don't have interest in this, I have a large mirror in the door of my closet and sometimes I turn my head for a second but I don't really care anymore. However I record myself whenever I can, not for me, I like to post vids but I'm very picky and I delete 90% :laugh:

Got a large window someone threw at me (not literarely, thankfully) ones and have never got used to anything really. Have brought it out a couple of times to watch myself. I guess I could call it some kind of therapy. Got a bit of a background and well, I've found it hard before to really get sexual with others cause I simply couldn't see myself in that situation. Watching myself did help quite a bit. If you can find yourself hot in a sexual situation, then probably others can too.

(To make this anecdote a little clearer: I don't really follow gender norms, but I do have a prostate.)

I purchased my first sextoys a few months ago - a Small Duke and Mini Nocturne, both firm, for anal. I hesitated a lot about the size but I couldn't have picked better. On the evening I first managed to get passed Nocturne's knot, I stood in front of a tall mirror, Nocturne still inside me, and found it somewhat arousing. I guess I just never sexualized myself before, but seeing something up my butt... Plus I had shaved my legs for a pretty risqué Halloween costume - not something I plan on doing ever again but it was a lot of fun anyway.

The next day I tried the Duke and I was able to get it in a lot easier the the day before. I used a lot more lube and I sat on top of it, moving up and down. That's when I thought: this probably looks pretty hot from behind. So I filmed myself riding the Duke for a few minutes in various positions, then I turned around and filmed myself from the font as I came.

Turns out the video was indeed pretty hot... until I turned around. Oh god the faces I made, haha. To be fair it was my first time getting that much pleasure from anal, but still, I looked ridiculous. I laughed at it and deleted the file. So yeah, if I ever ride someone cowgirl style, I have to work on my cumface, haha!

I record myself quite often while toying and fapping. Arrouses me and gives me a feeling I cant really explain but I like it a lot and also nice to share afterwards :widesmile:

I usually don't do this. To be honest, I find recording to be a total pain and makes me too self-conscious. For one thing, I'm a perfectionist so everything has to be perfect -- lighting, composition, focus and depth of field. Then I have to be positioned for the camera. It's really a sacrifice of my personal enjoyment for others' benefit. Which I'm willing to do sometimes, but not very often. Then I feel a bit guilty or narcissistic if I get aroused by my own image so I tend not to watch myself lol, unless it's out of curiosity to see what others see.

Don't get me wrong, I'm an exhibitionist and love being seen naked but I don't enjoy having to do all the work myself. I wouldn't mind being in porn :blush:

I wish I had a large mirror, but currently the only mirror I have is in the bathroom.

I hate it when I see my face in the reflection of my phone, it completely kills my mood. I don't like to be reminded that it is me doing things to myself, I do not hate the act of someone doing things to themselves. I hate me doing it to myself, evangelist shaming of any touching of yourself that was not showering as quickly as possible by my parents during formative years really did a number on my psyche. I like the thought of seeing the toy itself, it is a turn on just touching and feeling a toy. I learned that with a regular rubber dong I used to own, years before I ventured into my first and only adult online community that is the Bad dragon forums.

I’ve used a hand mirror in the bathroom. I thought it was hot. I loved seeing a toy in me, seeing myself squirt, seeing what my.... special area..... does when I am having a orgasm. I love seeing a little white thin slowly slide out of me as I work myself up. The best thing was getting my smelly (yes, it smells.... Not bad, but not good either...) black dildo with the suction cup on my hand mirror and pump away using the handle. It’s surreal and it’s so cool seeing peaks of myself as I slide in and out. I’ve used cameras and phones before, but I don’t record so much.

I know that feeling. I hate looking at myself in the reflection because I’m not always too impressed with myself.
