OPERATION ORGY


Written by: Laura C. Anderson


We sit down with an Afghanistan war veteran and learn about a BTS sex culture in the military


 

While breathing heavily and stroking his penis, Derek*, a fresh from training interrogator for the United States Army, watches from a desk chair as his roommate, Mark* and two fellow soldiers, Craig* and Dan* take turns fucking one of the only female soldiers in their company. Derek’s taking a short break and catching his breath before rejoining the orgy taking place just feet away on Katie’s* bed.

The room is cold, dark, and small – think 300 to 400 square feet – and it smells like a girl’s locker room. There’s minimal furniture in the room while ponchos are resourcefully hung from the ceiling to create privacy for the women sleeping in this small space.

Outside the building the air is thickened by a heat wave. It’s June and Kandahar, Afghanistan is roughly 100 degrees. The naked eye can see miles of long, narrow, brown buildings parallel to one another separated by tall concrete barriers. Everything stationary is covered in sand and what’s not stationary is covered in camouflage; the soldiers, the trucks, the cargo, etc. 

It’s 2008 and according to Army lingo, Derek is a “Fobbit,” named after the creatures in the popular Tolkien series. He never leaves the Forward Operating Base (FOB) unless by aircraft. His shifts are usually 12 hours long and after eating, showering, working out, and walking everywhere in between, he’s lucky to have two or three hours of free time a day. It just so happens that on this particular day, while writing a letter to his grandmother in the few short hours he has to himself, Derek’s roommate, Mark, gets invited to have group sex with one of the few female soldiers at base. 

To give you a historical refresher, Derek and his fellow troops stationed overseas during this time are aiding in the fight against the Taliban. It’s mid June so the United States along with other countries in the world are watching nightly news clips about the Taliban attacking Pakistani paramilitary troops and freeing roughly 1,000 prisoners from the Sarposa Prison. Though the soldiers’ minds are consumed with these thoughts, it is in moments of carnal pleasure like this orgy that these soldiers are able to truly escape the war.

While bending over Katie’s bedside table, Craig inches his penis closer to Katie’s mouth. Beside him, Dan is doing the same. Derek glances over at Mark who’s masturbating fervently until it’s yet again his turn. For a moment, Derek watches in disbelief as this insanely attractive soldier sucks off two men at once. He stands in anticipation for round two the way someone at Starbucks might stand in line waiting for their morning coffee. 

Derek’s initial worries are quickly washed away by the hormones that flood his body the second he feels Katie’s fingers tracing the outline of his balls. This is his cue to undress and join in – this is her way of inviting him to fuck her.  

Though Derek is cute and muscular, he’s roughly 5’11” and displays a certain nerdy attractiveness most women find endearing; Katie didn’t invite him into her barracks. In fact, she asked him to leave when he first arrived. When Mark excitedly returned from working the night shift he asked Derek if he “wanted to come bang a girl in her room.” Derek’s eyes widened at the thought of finally having sex with a woman.

This is where Derek lived and the buildings this story takes place in.

This is where Derek lived and the buildings this story takes place in.

It had been five months of sexual isolation while stationed in Kandahar. No sex, no alcohol, and at the ripe age of 21 you could imagine how incredibly difficult this dry spell would be for any young man. “If I could get 20-30 minutes of privacy I’d watch some porn on the shared hard drive of porn and masturbate. Yes, porn was shared on a network drive,” Derek recalls while laughing from the comfort of his living room. He then jokingly adds, “I double dog dare any single person to go six months with no sex and only masturbate while at work. When your six months are up, you will appear so desperate to anyone you're attracted to that it's almost a turn off for them. Also, good luck finding privacy at work…”

Today, Derek is 29 and working as a software engineer being scouted by top companies like Facebook. It was 2008 when he enlisted in the Army. “I needed a change of scenery and dropped out of college,” Derek says. From there he became an interrogator for the United States Army. Little did he know what would lie ahead – though having his basic human rights stripped away and earned back through respect and hard work was tiring, it was nothing compared to the dry spell. He, like most men in their early 20’s, was horny and the thought of finally having sex again seemed almost too good to be true.

Once he and Mark arrive at Katie’s building, Derek is flushed with embarrassment as he stands awkwardly waiting for his roommate to convince Katie to let him join. Katie initiated the orgy and was in total control over who could or could not join. Just as Derek is about to leave, Mark waves him inside. When Derek re-enters the room he can’t help but stare at Katie. She’s wearing pink/purple pajamas, which is out of the ordinary considering it isn’t common to see anyone wearing civilian clothing. The troops are typically in their work ACU’s, the classic grayish, digital print camouflage, or their PT uniform. 

Derek’s eyes scan Katie’s pajamas, which are turning him on, before getting a better look at her face. She has a beautiful, soft complexion. Her black hair is rarely out of a bun but it goes halfway down her back when she finally lets it out. She has brown eyes and a longer face with plump baby cheeks. She’s watching Derek and Mark stand idly in the doorway as they make small talk while waiting for the other soldiers to arrive.

Craig appears first. He’s tall, very tall, and would soon become one of Derek’s best friends. “He was the biggest asshole you'd ever meet, but he always cut through the bullshit. He wasn't afraid to ask or say anything,” Derek says recalling some fond memories of his friend. Minutes later, Dan arrives. He looks fat and overweight yet somehow, according to BMI measurements, he’s not. Dan is the fastest runner in the whole company, an incredible athlete to say the least. 

Before Derek is even able to address his fellow soldiers, Katie walks over and begins kissing Craig. Seconds later she’s directing Craig to undress as she shifts her body away and begins kissing Mark. She’s running her fingers over Mark’s biceps, which are big and muscular considering he spends the majority of his free time in the gym. Things are escalating quickly and all Derek can concentrate on is how out of place he feels. “I felt out of place, scared even, until she began fondling my balls. The fear didn’t go away but the hormones took over,” Derek recalls, smirking. 

The three men take turns fucking, masturbating while watching, and getting their dicks sucked. Because condoms are free and handed out like candy in the army, the men used protection. “It was like a porno. She wanted as many cocks in her mouth as possible,” Derek says before admitting he couldn’t get himself to join in on that part of the orgy knowing his penis would be touching another man’s. “For a while, it was the highlight of my life, until I met my Army girlfriend that I would have threesomes with on more than one occasion.” 

Though the orgy lasted a little under an hour and never happened again with the same partners, the experience introduced Derek to the men and women who liked to have sex on a regular basis. Almost like a colony within his company made up of people who identified as able and willing to fuck whenever, wherever. 

In many ways sex is viewed very casually in the army despite our nation's growing concern for the welfare of our female soldiers and the continued target placed upon their backs. Though rape and other forms of non-consensual sexual behavior does unfortunately occur, it's also important to realize there's a great deal of consensual sex taking place. Many women in the military are just as sexually promiscuous as men. Bottom line; women want to have sex, too. 

Derek, still on the couch, uncrosses his legs and takes a hard pull from the electronic cigarette in his right hand. He then goes on to explain how sex outside of one's marriage is illegal under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). “You could wind up on some remote FOB if there was even too much time spent together with someone who was married,” he says. 

 If you're caught having sex with a married man or woman you will be automatically dishonorably discharged. It's taken very seriously, as it should be. At the same time the army is strict on private male and female interaction. Unless on official business, men are not allowed inside female barracks. It's a safety concern and it's enforced at all hours of the day, which is why Derek and his fellow soldiers risked severe punishment the day they entered Katie's room. "The punishment would have sucked but it would have been worth every second of that," Derek admits. 

The vast majority of soldiers are sex deprived and after so many months, sometimes years, of serving without that form of contact, Derek explains how "you'll get horny just standing near a girl who happens to smell good." It's impossible for one to wrap their mind around the lifestyle of a soldier unless you’ve actually been there yourself.

"It sounds bad but an otherwise ugly woman is considered hot in the army. If she's a 3/10 looks wise at home in the states, she's a 9/10 or 10/10 in the army," Derek explains with a look on his face that screams, 'Yeah. I know I sound like a douchebag but that’s just how it is.' 

To put it into perspective, if a company is made up of a few hundred soldiers, the ratio of women to men is about 14 women (maximum) for every one hundred men. Meaning; a woman doesn't have to be our society's ideal image of sexiness in order to be considered insanely sexy in the military. It sounds derogatory and harsh but lack of options and available women to choose from means the men are less picky when deciding whom to fuck. Think of it as war goggles, similar to beer goggles in that your decision-making skills are impaired, but without the alcohol to induce it. 

"When you come home from war every woman is hot. You go from seeing one or two women in a given week to hundreds," Derek says before adding, "Every woman was beautiful overseas. If a girl was a 1 before we deployed, she was a 7 by this point." It's a mindset only those who have served can relate to, yet it makes sense. 

The Army breads an incredibly unmatched sexual culture. You can't really compare the liaise-fare mentality our soldiers have with any other group of individuals. Yes, we live in a culture where sex is seemingly casual and in many cases meaningless for the younger generations in this country. And yes, thanks to dating apps and social media, non-committal sex is available to us at all hours of the day. But even so, the way non-military men or women view sex is entirely different than those currently serving. 

The rarity of women overseas basically means any woman who wants sex can have it, and with whomever she chooses for as long as he or she is not married. Just like Katie, a woman can literally point at any man and invite him for sex and within the next few minutes there will be a penis in her mouth or vagina. "I learned if you wanted to have sex with a woman, sometimes you just had to ask. I learned that there’s no such thing as a slut, women want to get laid, too," Derek says.  

Once finished, the soldiers get dressed and go about their daily routine and responsibilities as if nothing ever happened. At the end of the day, they are still a unit, a family of devoted individuals whose main concern is serving our country, not their libidos. If that's not sex at its most casual counterpoint, I don't know what is. 

Nonetheless, we’re happy for Derek and his wild sexual experiences, but mostly, we’re proud and thankful for his service.
