THE PSYCHEDELIC SCIENCE OF ‘GOONING’ — OR MASTURBATING INTO A TRANCE

Why get high when you could edge yourself for hours until you’ve merged souls with your own dick?

Most of Reddit will tell you that edging is fantastic, but the real hardcore ’baters level up from there. The ones who travel furthest for self-pleasure say that, if they edge long enough, they fall into a mind-numbing trance where nothing matters but nutting. Only then can an edger truly claim to be “gooning.” 

“Gooning is a sort of modernized version of tantric sex/masturbation without the spiritual aspects that have been traditionally associated with it in the past,” says Christfister, who moderates two of the many subreddits dedicated to the topic. “It’s an almost hypnotic, semi-meditative mental state a person can enter after prolonged masturbation.”

This, to be clear, is completely different from the regular ol’ wham-bam-thank-you-m’am whackoff you do when you’re mildly horny and trying to fall asleep. Edging, gooning’s close cousin, is a bit more time-consuming and involved, but it comes with the promise of a more powerful and gratifying ejaculation at the end. With gooning, however, the desire to orgasm “pretty much goes out the window,” Christfister explains. It’s like when a basketball player enters “the zone” and can’t miss a shot because their muscle memory and mental focus are locked in sync — except in this case, the goal is to not shoot a damn thing. 

Instead, a gooner remains “deeply in the bliss of masturbation,” Christfister continues, submitting themselves to an unrelenting cycle of tease and denial. Gone are thoughts of your workday or the national debt, he says, while your “inhibitions will have completely melted away and you are at one with your body.” Many gooners describe it as the state where your “mind merges with your cock.”

Like anything worth accomplishing, gooning takes practice. To goon, Christfister says, “Instead of powering through and jerking off 100 percent to orgasm, you ease off around 90 percent and slowly build up” to the point of no return. He computes that the goon state happens “around the last two to three percent” of heightened pleasure, just short of orgasm. “When you can get to that point and can maintain it without cumming, you can basically stay in an orgasm state that lasts for hours instead of seconds,” he explains. “I’ve had gooning sessions where I’ve edged for 14 hours in a single sitting before finally cumming.”

To get there, though, redditor JoiJunkie, a 21-year-old Southerner, says one must first master edging. “It took me a long time to ‘feel the goon,’” he tells me. “I didn’t even fully believe in it for a long time.” But that day finally arrived when he decided to beat his personal edging record. “I set up a timer for three and a half hours, and I just went,” he says. “After two hours or so, I felt the goon.”

He recently wrote a very detailed post titled “Reaching the ‘Goon State,’” where he outlines the various “stages” of gooning. The last stage is “for the most dedicated gooners,” and occurs after “hours and hours of continuous masturbation.” Apparently around that time, “their genitals will be throbbing and begging for release, which will only add more fuel to the fire and force the gooner to keep compulsively masturbating.” He writes that the “state is incredibly pleasurable,” and that the gooner’s body “may convulse or tremor in pleasure.” Finally, he adds, “At this point, any kind of communication with the gooner would be meaningless lustful groans and moans.”

Other gooners report falling into the goon state within 15 to 20 minutes, often describing the sensation as “goon stupid,” or if they’re consuming hours of explicit content, “porn dumb.” Goon-related memes often feature the “goon face,” a person with their eyes crossed, mouth ajar and tongue sticking out.

Though the community of gooning redditors who post about the practice is dominated by males, women gooners do exist, too. “Been playing with edging and trying to goon for the past few weeks,” writes a self-described “gooner lady,” Philosophia420. “Omg when I get to the goon trance it’s sooo great, I just rub and get lost in the pleasure.”

The gooner’s effort to enter this headspace may include “goon caves,” which are multi-screen setups splaying a variety of porn. Most number three or four screens, but among the more elaborate constructs, proudly posted to r/GoonCaves by StayHard8, is a nine-screen monolith. With his gripped cock in the foreground, StayHard8’s watching a plethora of female pornstars performing cowgirl, readying themselves for pop shots in the mouth, taking D’s in the A’s, giving head and massaging their tits…
