Cycles Of Porn – Sex/Life in L.A. part 2

Germany | 2005 | 104:00 min

Auch heute versuchen junge Männer in einer Mischung aus Abenteuerlust und narzistischem Antrieb der „Industry“ ihren eigenen Stempel aufzudrücken. Im Namen des Sex - wobei die Grenzen zwischen öffentlichem und privatem Sex verfliessen. Denn Porno ist aus dem Leben des Durchschnittsschwulen nicht mehr wegzudenken. Doch die Zeit zum Träumen ist vorbei und Konsumenten, Models und Produzenten verfolgen nicht unbedingt die gleichen Interessen. Es ist eine Mischung aus Selbstausbeutung und unbewusstem ausgebeutet werden. Das schwule Leben und die gesamte Branche haben sich inzwischen weiter professionalisiert und kommerzialisiert. Und so beginnen junge Models ihre sexuelle Karriere in Internetcontainern und Bareback Videoproduzenten bereisen per Motorhome das ganze Land auf der Suche nach neuen Darstellern.
Synopsis
Los Angeles in the year 2005: 19-year-old lads move through an apartment that has been equipped with webcams and looks like some sort of futuristic internet doll’s house. Not-quite-so-young men fulfil their sexual dreams as protagonists in bareback productions. And, at private sex parties, almost every second guy has either taken part in a porn film or wants to.
In 1997, I followed on camera the fortunes of a group of men who had chosen to wok – either artistically or commercially – with their bodies. This footage later become part of my 1998 documentary, SEX/LIFE IN L.A.. I’m still in touch with some of the men in that film, these include: lone battler Kevin Kramer, mature shooting star Cole Tucker, American boy-next-door Matt Bradshaw and friends of the occasional model John Garwood, who died of an overdose in 1998. Some of these men have successful careers behind them, others have left the sex industry altogether.

Driven by a sense of adventure or by their narcissism, young men today are still keen to put their own stamp on porn cinema. But the days of a purely non-commercial fulfilment of one’s sexual desires has long gone, and the interests of consumers, models and producers no longer coincide. Gay life – like the entire industry – has become something of a profession and is now thoroughly commercialized. Young models begin their sexual careers in internet containers; they enter the business fully aware of their self-exploitation and yet, at the same time, they are somehow unconscious of how they are being exploited. Meanwhile, bareback video producers scout the country in their motorhome on the lookout for new protagonists.
