DNA Magazine - - THE USA ISSUE -

Amer­i­cans didn’t in­vent porn, but they sure have made it their bitch! Cyn­ics might say they have com­mod­i­fied desire; but oth­ers hail the lib­er­at­ing ef­fects of porn.

Along the way, the US of A has given rise to some of the most iconic names in gay porn: Jeff Palmer, Jeff Stryker, Pete Kuzak, Brent Cor­ri­gan, Austin Wilde, Buck An­gel, Colby Keller. The list is end­less.

The in­dus­try be­gan mod­estly in the postWWII era of strict cen­sor­ship with physique ti­tles and photo ser­vices like the Ath­letic Model Guild and Physique Pic­to­rial. When the pro­duc­tion and distri­bu­tion of porn fi­nally be­came le­gal, iconic stu­dios like Fal­con, Colt and Catalina de­liv­ered su­per-masc men to porn cine­mas and, later, via VHS cas­sette and DVD.

In the dig­i­tal age, on­line stu­dios like Randy Blue, Next Door Men, Sean Cody, Corbin Fisher and Cocky Boys proved Amer­ica’s ap­ti­tude for cre­at­ing hot smut! The di­ver­sity of tastes is also ev­i­dent with spe­cial­ist stu­dios like Ac­tive Duty,

8TeenBoy, 30Men, Fratur­ni­tyX, Str8Thug and Trea­sure Is­land.

Now, so­cial me­dia plat­forms like In­sta­gram can di­rect devo­tees to the FanOnly sub­scrip­tion apps of their favourite hunks, mak­ing the ex­pe­ri­ence even more per­sonal and unique. The huge reach of live sex cam plat­forms like Cam4 gives am­a­teur and anony­mous per­form­ers the chance to reach a global and mo­bile au­di­ence (and their cash).

Ad­vance­ments in cul­ture and tech­nol­ogy are help­ing the US porn in­dus­try adapt and grow. Gay porn stu­dios are con­tin­u­ally broad­en­ing their reper­toire, pro­duc­ing scenes with men of all shapes, colours and sizes. And, it seems, one day soon, we’ll be able to have a fully sen­sory,

3D in­ter­ac­tive, vir­tual ex­pe­ri­ence of our favourite porn stars in the com­fort and pri­vacy of our own homes.

Amer­ica is also the place that al­lows for­eign­ers with nat­u­ral porn tal­ent to flour­ish: Michael Lu­cas (Russia), Fran­cois Sa­gat (France), Paddy O’Brien (Ire­land), Dean Mon­roe (Australia). Now tell us im­mi­gra­tion isn’t a good idea!
