Black in Back: Dark Alley and Pitbull’s The Show

Posted May 22, 2006 12:22 AM by with 16 comments

gay-porn-video-the-show-pit.jpgA perverted Bruce Wayne-esque billionaire hosts a sex-based audition for his newest plaything. New York City-based Dark Alley Media and Pitbull Productions’ inaugural joint effort The Show (Part 1) is a tongue-in-ass riff on reality television that revels in the sexiness Black and Latino actors without resorting to clumsy race cliches.

Social anxiety (whether over weight, cock size or race) quickly reverts to caricature in porn. How else to take movies with titles like Chocolate Cake with White Topping, Black Magic White Heat if not as the sexualized descendants of Stepin Fetchit skits? But most major studios still lack more than one black and Latino actor in their stable, and only a few — most notably Raging Stallion and Lucas Entertainment — mix it up without reducing the actors to

Nimble start-up Dark Alley took a deft shortcut and partnered with Pitbull Productions on The Show, mixing DAM’s hardcore sarcasm with Pitbull’s self-declared “thug porn” realness. Black and Latino stalwarts like Supreme, T Malone and Mario Cruz battle it out for the attention of judges Tiger Tyson and Owen Hawk — and the fat wallet of billionaire Mattias Von Fistenberg. The nut-busting fun isn’t entirely relegated to bottomless bottoms swallowing miles of engorged cock, however, though it is a major factor (watching Tiger Tyson’s jaw-dropping cock wreak havoc on his co-stars is particularly compelling). Piggish sex challenges, a fetish runway show and other clever distractions keep your interest piqued when you’re not peeking.


Von Fistenberg and Supreme were arrested for lewd behavior during filming, after onlookers caught sight of them rutting through a window. Now that I’ve seen The Show, I know what all the fuss was about. Too bad the real crime is that other studios continue to pump out corn-ball “fantasies in black and white” rather than collaborate.

    Kinda gutter trashy and skanky if ya ask me. Race isn’t my issue with this title, but rather a general ick factor.

    I am so glad someone commented on the racist stereotyping of which men of color have to endure in adult entertainment. It amazes me that porn is even behind mainstream Hollywood in giving black and latino porn stars a chance to be something other than a “thug” or “ghetto boy” or just “an appendage” who drills white boys. Stepin Fetchit indeed it seems. When will people ever learn that men of color are just as viable as their white counterparts and want to be taken just as seriously, even if it is just porn. I am sick to death of the race cliches and the insulting video titles such as “Black Cocks in White Asses.” Can we not put the whole Mandingo fantasy to rest and just have fun. It’s supposed to be hot sex, not a racist pidgeonholing of played out stereotypes. I suspect many studios revert to portraying porn stars of color in this manner because there are some porn stars themselves who feel their image might be tainted if they actually engage in romantic sex with blacks and latinos, instead of being taken by force in some sexual way. In such similar instances as the days of when Blaxploitation films gained popularity, I think their porn counterparts sprung up because they were not given good credible sex parts. It will only change when the studios and the actors decide to treat each other as equals, even in the sex video industry.

    Straight media/business in general is way more openminded & less discriminating than gay media/community.

    awesome comment marc. u are so right. i know the stereotype reflects some interests, but goodness. it gets old, and u wonder if the white bottoim is bored or not into the black top. also u wonder in some bottom’s minds it they feel degraded.

    I doubt they feel degraded while it’s happening, they may feel that way afterwards when the drugs wear off. I think it’s kinda hot watching a black brotha putting his sausage into whitey. Feels pretty good too.

    Personally, I do all I can to avoid the black/white matrix in porn. The racial shorthand is SO boring! Blacks are all tops, Latinos are sexier blacks, & Asians, eternal bottoms. The bottom line for me is more productions need to be made for and by black & brown people, Enrique Cruz is my hero, with multi-ethnic casting (Asian, black, Latino, Turkish, Arab, Indian) but this reflects a larger world view of mine. As gay men we all know how important porn is in our community and it is time for you fellas out there to pick up your cameras to create and support work that reflects a broader sensual, sexual worldview. When you do the large studios with tons of production values and sex that seems frozen under glass will follow your lead. I will get off my soapbox now.

    Great observations; particularly about the “Mandigo Fantasy” and the Blaxploitation-comparison. I kinda think that the reasons for the stereotyping of people of color in most porn is somewhat simpler than it seems. I tend to think that it’s for the same reason(s) that major fashion and tabloid magazines so seldom put a black or latin Images on their covers; They lose sales. Most consumers who buy magaines and porn are white. The End. So, it’s more likely than not that the majority are going to purchase a product that they relate to. I think that it’s the same reason that some Gay Clubs have “Black Night” or “Latin Night”, etc. People in general, tend to be most attracted to, comforable with and sexually interested in people they relate to. Sadly, inter-racial porn (Gay and Straight) still seems to fall into the category of Niche;hence the unimaginative titles and dumb tongue-in-cheek metaphors. Erique Cruz, Pitbull, Kristian Bjorn and Lucus Entertainment (in my opinion) have figured out how to present people of color as People in their videos v.s. semi-frightening sex montsters lurking in the shadows for white guys. End of story, I love Porn! I just don’t expect the industry to get smarter until the consumer gets smarter. I’ll willing to wait it out. Cocostore,Lucas and Cruz are likely to be the wave of the future.

    The problem I’ve always had with some of the so-called (especially the thug shit, not for me) black or latino gay porn, is that they just grab some of these skinny, too dam short, pants off their ass, no muscles, ugly, unattractive, little boy queens, dl thugs, off the streets, and just have them play up sterotypical sex scenes.

    I’ve notice over the years, that some of these gay porn studios, don’t really take the time out (like they do for some of their caucasian models) to really seek out tall, good looking, more masculine, muscular black or latino gay men/models (not just top, but versetale) to produce good quality gay adult porn featuring men of color.

    Have you guys seen some of the men from the DL Chronocles or the Closet series?
    The black and latino men on these two dramas are fucking HOT!!!? Now take just a little bet of the dialgue of those to drama series, flip it with a MenAtplay twist (the hot forgein website with men in suites having hot sex), and BOOM! It will sell like Hell!

    Those are the type (we are out here, we do exist you know) of gay men of color I want to see in future gay American adult porn, having hot romantic sex. I’m talking about the Kiki Barbar, Tyson Beckford, Rick Fox, Deangolo Hall, Terrell Owens type look or the men from the Powermen website, all I got to say is HOT!!!

    I’m just tired, sick of this overrated, played out, look like crackheads, need to get in the gym, get a body, clean your stank ass, below average thug porn BS. It’s disgusting! We can do better, I know we have much better taste then this.

    Peace everyone.
