Voyeur vs. Peeping Tom
Voyeur vs. Peeping Tom
I am a person who often finds himself in the right place at the right time. There have been numerous times in my life when I have encountered a person or couple engaged in sexual activity who have taken no precaution to conceal or hide themselves from view. I didn't sneak, hide or make any extraordinary effort to be where I was to see it. So the question is, does that make me a voyeur or a peeping tom?
I would argue a voyeur.
One of my first experiences was in college. I lived a second story apartment with a balcony that faced the backside of another apartment building. On the first floor directly across from me was an attractive gal who lived alone. One night I was on the balcony when I saw her spread eagle on her bed vigorously masturbating herself. Her window blinds were pulled completely up. The lights were off in the room but she was illuminated by the tv (which was on Letterman, no less). She didn't do anything to maintain her privacy and I certainly wasn't going to miss the show.
Some voyeuristic opportunities are auditory. Later that same year, a frat brother upstairs was pounding a coed who called out every move like a play by play. She was so lound the whole block could hear her.
Later, when I was working and living in a small apartment, a couple next door regularly (and by that I mean every night) had intense, headboard-banging sex. The girl was a skinny waif. The guy was a buff Hispanic dude. He must have been huge because I knew every time he penetrated her by her screams of pleasure and pain.
Now married and living in the suburbs, I thought my voyeuristic opportunities were over. I was wrong! My neighbors are quite the show boaters. The wife is a cute Hispanic gal (I love Latin women. They can look sexy doing anything!) She often likes to sunbathe topless. Because their bedroom window faces my backyard, I often have an unobstructed view right into their bedroom, (again) where they tend to leave the blinds pulled up. They have treated me to dozens of free shows, making no effort to create any privacy for themselves. There's no way they think I can't see into their backyard or bedroom based on how my house is situated with theirs. Maybe they like it that way? Maybe they get excited thinking someone is getting a free show?
I am happy to oblige.
