THERE ARE SENSITIVE, BEARDED MEN IN LONDON AND WE NEED TO SEE THEM NAKED
Remember when you were complaining to me that gay porn is so stylized and ascetic? (Because I can dig up the emails if you want.) Well, director Travis Mathews, the non-porn pornographer and creative force behind I Want Your Love, is going to London to shoot more of those scruffy, unbuffy, bearded boys that you love. And everyone who’s ever said they want more out of their porn, or their men, needs to help him get there.
The much-anticipated I Want Your Love feature will be at festivals this summer, but Travis’s latest project needs your help to get made. Travis has been on a mission to record gay men in their natural habitats, their bedrooms, since 2009. The results: sometimes sexual, sometimes vulnerable, always beautiful, are stunning. These are documents of our lives. But In Their Room series of films isn’t just a meditation on modern sexuality, it’s also incredibly hot. Check out the trailers from his first two installments, Berlin and San Francisco, below.
Now, he’s trying to get to London, and we’re helping him get out the word. If you believe that our gay lives — sexual, cultural, political — are important to record, you’ll help send him. He’s not asking for much, but like so many gay filmmakers, he can’t do it without you. It’s hard out here for a pimp. Especially an alt-one.
