Amateur Gay Porn: The Body Shoppe

Posted May 16, 2005 7:54 AM by with 13 comments

With the largest swell of youth since the baby boom, amateur gay porn producers have their hands full. For a few hundred bucks — and sometimes even less — there are a steady stream of college students, Marines and down-on-their-luck surfers willing to come over and jerk off on some pervert’s couch.

Uncle Don of The Body Shoppe is one of the dirtiest fucks in the business. Don has no shame, thank god. Part reality show, part home video, Uncle Don puts on old straight porn and tries to teach his willing captives “the old Marine Corps reach around.” Hot stuff.These aren’t gay guys playing straight — they’re an honest mix of awkward and cocky, hard-up and horny, curious and wary. But Uncle Don talks a good game and, when he’s lucky — or when he’s got one of them alone and hard — the avuncular director may get in a stroke of his own. Uncle Don is all about bad touch (though how inappropriate can it be when you’re jerking off on a stranger’s coffee table?)…

Hanes briefs, baby fat, wall mirrors and bad tattoos are all part of the rigidly hot charm of the Body Shoppe. When Don’s especially lucky, one of the boys will let The Mask, Don’s hooded and gloved compatriot kneel down and suck him dry. Amid the incessant off-camera moans of straight porn, the boys learn the Tao of Don. And an empty bank account has no qualms and a stiff dick has no conscience.

    You know, each time I see an entry from you all, I think, great — perhaps this one will be one where they aren’t trying to sell something. But, 19 times out of 20 I’m wrong, it feels. You were my first smut blog, so I feel affection and a certain loyalty. But, could you every now and then just do a post just for the sheer joy of it? Okay, there are the interviews which could be argued are just for the joy of it. But, even those some times just feel like you’re advertising for them, this time. I’m not too demanding. Just a little something on the side, ya know?

    Um, you may find it hard to believe, but I really like Uncle Don’s oeuvre. He’s a creepy molester that I find disturbingly entertaining and often hot. I blogged it ’cause Sister Roma and I were chatting about our mutual fascination with “The Mask” at a party this weekend. Sorry to offend.

    What is a Republican doing reading The Gay Porn Blog? Oh, you must be Ken Mehlman. Mea culpa.

    Those are disgusting and just fucking wrong. You just know those guys go home feeling dirty and violated. And MASK… need I say more.

    As I read this blog-piece, I had the same reaction as Unrepentant Slut — that it had to be a promotional piece. I couldn’t imagine anyone having anything good to say about this stuff. I like almost any kind of (legal) porn, I can find something exciting in almost any genre of any quality, and it takes a lot to offend me. This Don person, however, is maybe the most offensive and disgusting character ever to slither onto or behind the screen. I agree that lecherous, predatory, and shameless might sometimes be stimulating, but everything about this guy is a turnoff. His personality and commentary are boorish, narrow, and just ignorant, and manage to ruin any scene with any amateur, no matter how hot. In one of his films, he finds some skater punk on the street and gets him to jerk off in the bushes. Don goes out of his way to portray the kid as a violent lunatic, and says so even as he’s filming and the model could hear. I got the impression this reaction was caused primarily by the model’s equally direct communication that he didn’t want Don to come near him; and who could blame him? The victim might have been emotionally disturbed (if only by Don), but the only thing violent was Don’s openly degrading objectification of this person and his abusive attitude. In the right context, when both participants are on the same page, so to speak, that can be hot. The kid’s look of utter disdain said volumes, though. I had far more respect for this allegedly dangerous criminal, who at least demonstrated some integrity, than for the low class, low functioning, low standard profiteer and narcissistic panderer who churns out these films starring himself like so much sausage — and not the kind he’s always trying to get his ugly paws on. Even the studio name is cheesy: Body ShopPE. I’m surprised it’s not Ye Olde Body Shoppe. UGH! And this MASK crap; why not find someone who’s willing to show his face, for god’s sake. The “straight” models do, so certainly the standby homo can. What a bunch of losers.

    There’s more to porn than just pecs and production value, and I think that’s where a lot of you misread my interest in the Body Shoppe. Uncle Don is, for all intents and purposes, us, the viewer. For a cash exchange, he’s given access to the bodies of these young men that he might not normally have.

    I like the honesty and direct nature of the amateur porn for that very reason. It doesn’t pretend to be anything it’s not — except for maybe the would-be hoodlums and the attempt-to-be straights. Uncle Don and Mask themselves are very upfront about what they want and are as subservient to the boys everyone is claiming they dominate.

    This stuff may or may not get you off, but I think the directness of the relationships is absolutely fascinating. I stand by my original post.

    I love this site. Of course what gay man being honest about it does not truly adore gay porn. So I must adore this great site. GK

    The new films by the Israeli gay film maker are awesome! Israeli milatry scences coupled with hot Israeli and American boys! fabulously done!!

    Why is it that some people have to disect EVERY little thing about something, hence finding ANY excuse not to like ANYTHING???
    Porn is porn and whether its reality or scripted the idea is to give us satisfaction. In these films, I find that the REALISM is second to none… ya might as well be hanging out at the local dive bar and thats the kind of realism that I am looking for! so for those who don’t agree, go put on your Red Dress and find some Brad Benton or Jason Crew stuff to make yourselves feel prettier!!!

    I appreciate realism and direct relationships in porn. I like a lot of amateur porn. I dislike films cast with lookalike, well-hung, shaved hunks mechanically performing formula scenes. So the qualities everyone extols in the Body Shoppe movies are qualities I find appealing in porn. I just don’t find any evidence of them in anything I’ve seen produced by Uncle Don et al.

    On the other hand, some studios, large and small, sometimes or often do a good job of capturing realistic sex between hot actors. Some of the behind-the-scenes segments, though obviously not “real” because everyone usually knows they’re being filmed, seem to be pretty good indicators of when actors are having a good time on a set and when they’re not, and the degree to which they seem to be able to be themselves. In the ones I’ve seen, the relationships between the director/crew and the actors are certainly more honest and direct (whether good or bad) than in the ridiculous setups thrown together by the Body Shoppe and intended to pass for real. Something real happens between the Body Shoppe people and the amateurs being filmed, but I don’t think it’s what they intend to portray or what viewers want to believe it is when they watch. There’s nothing sexual about it except the attempt to pass it off as reality porn.

    It’s fine with me if the able reviewer is unpersuaded and stands by his original opinion. But let’s leave some room for opposing viewpoints without suggesting anyone who disagrees didn’t understand the review or, as in the comment by Rizzo, is nitpicking just to find something wrong or doesn’t grasp the purpose of porn.
