Male Split Beavers: Gay Porn’s Final Frontier?
Esteemed porn scholar Jeffrey Escoffier was recently explaining the evolution of nudity in film. In the mid-1950s, directors like Russ Meyer pioneered nudity in films known as Nudie-Cuties, campy comedies that featured lots of boobs. These gave way to “Beavers” — movies that showed female crotch — and these led to the “Split Beaver” movies, which actually showed women with their legs open. Without these there would be no porn today — gay or straight.
