Gay Porn in Uniform: Blue Movies in the Green Zone?
Tomorrow marks the 4th anniversary of the start of the Iraq War, I’m given to review the numerous intersections of gay porn and the US military campaign. In fact, given the recent expose on poor conditions at the Walter Reed Army Medical Center, one could fairly claim that the gay porn industry is providing better care for our boys than George Bush.
If I were coming back from a tour of Baghdad, I’d side with the 82nd Airborne division and put myself in the muscular hands of Dink Flamingo (of Active Duty fame) than George Bush’s Gollum-esque claws. Baghdad may be a dry town, but based on the footage online, Fort Bragg seems to be a party base.
All Worlds director Dirk Yates did most of his reality-style porn directing in peace time (in echoes of this month’s Matt Sanchez scandal, Dirk was cemented in the porn firmament in 1993 when Tom Brokaw uncovered Dirk Yates’ “Marine Porn Ring” on the nightly news), but he’s still the standard-bearer for all the molestory hopeful’s wishing to supplement a guy’s GI Bill.
While Cpl. Matt Sanchez might claim that gay porn was a personal low point for him, blue movies trump the Green Zone for many vets. Take “Aidyn” (no word on his military name) at JakeCruise.com: not long ago his abdomen was sliced open by an IED, now his ass is being split by Jake’s tongue. Even if Jake isn’t your type, it’s pretty easy to choose between the two.Meanwhile, back at base, it’s Beach Party Vietnam all over again. Could you imagine a better porn set than the pools at Saddam’s palace?
Of course, most gay military movies end up looking a lot more like the Scandavian reality show, “Gay Army.”
