The narrator, over a montage of men's faces in sexual ecstasy, discusses his desires. He is only interested in watching men's faces as they reach orgasm. To best see their faces, a certain distance is required (three or four feet), but this distance is hard to maintain at the same time he is manipulating their genitals. To overcome this problem, he wishes for himself a new physiology.
I think it's true: sexual pleasure is primarily located in the head - specifically, in the face.
