Bel Ami was the first studio to introduce Eastern European men to the gay porn world. The term “Bel Ami Boy” has since become synonymous with flawless, natural-looking, boyish beauty and uninhibited, passionate sex. With names like Lukas Ridgeston, Johan Paulik, and Max Orloff, Bel Ami Studios began to have a huge impact on gay porn.
Setting itself apart with scrupulous attention to detail and unrivaled production values, Bel Ami has since matured into one of the world’s most well-known gay adult studios. Director George Duroy and his colleagues have literally reshaped gay porn ideals and expanded the sexual vocabulary of gay men around the globe.
MEET THE MANY BEAUTIFUL MEN OF BEL AMI.
It always makes me laugh when gay guys say they are upset at straight guys, who are GAY FOR PAY. What do you care. Would YOU be straight for pay? I am sure many gay guys would.
And furthermore, what does GAY FOR PAY even mean? When I was in Prague a while back, I met many young rent boys who were in fact married with children. And I had very indepth conversations with many of them. What I found, in many cases, the guys were “bi”. But they strongly believe in having a family. Having a wife and kids. But are very comfortable in their own skin and enjoy sex, in all forms. So does this really make them straight?
I believe it is very much a cultural difference. I think it’s hard for some Americans to see them enjoying enthusiastic sex with men, then identifying as themselves as straight.
GEORGE DUROY said, ”
“Gay” porn was never dominated by gay models, and in the case of Bel Ami, not even half of the employees are gay. (In the last three years, we had seven babies born to our employees.) Gay porn should be more accurately called “all-male porn”. I don’t see this necessarily as a cultural difference—most of the models working for Corbin Fisher or Sean Cody are straight as well. I know some gay models in the U.S. who claimed to be straight to get a job with some of the American Studios.
On the other hand, I can’t imagine that a really STRAIGHT man would be able to perform the way our models perform, no matter what they think they are. I, for one, certainly wouldn’t be able to be “straight for pay”. We live in a world where traditional labels don’t apply anymore, partly as a result of gay emancipation. Being gay is not taboo anymore, and I’d say at least thirty percent of city boys in the Central European region happily experiment with their sexuality. Many enjoy it, but they wouldn’t think of themselves as being gay. They simply mingle freely, going with their girlfriends to gay bars and fondling other boys in front of girls. And now tell me—what is their orientation?
Sometimes I joke, saying that very few gay men are so enthusiastic during sex with other boys as these “straight” boys. I suspect that gay men lost their monopoly on gay sex as a part of their social acceptance. Or that experimenting with all-male sex is simply “in”. “
