Porn to be Wild

Quote of the Day “I’ve been waiting for the longest time/I want you to come back…” — Josh Rouse, “Comeback (Light Therapy)”

So…I’m still trying to wrap my brain around the Nebraska Incident, which is what I’m calling the whole to-do over the two NCAA champion wrestlers who bared all (and then some) at Fratmen.com. It seems these two straight boys wanted to show off their pecs and abs and dicks for an adoring public, under false names of course. Now they’ve been kicked off the team for posing for the site.

Now: was this just a moral thing? Like, say, college wrestlers just shouldn’t be stripping down for the world to see—even though they get on mats, dressed in skin-tight singlets that show off virtually all their private shit, wrap themselves around other sweaty, breathless hunks of young flesh, and even indulge, so I’ve been told, in something called “oil checking”? (if you don’t know what that is—and my very limited research tells me that it’s also called “butt dragging”—click here or here to see how some dude was actually charged with rape for doing it…)

Or is this because the site they stripped for is a gay site, for gay eyes?

The best reporting of this whole business is at QueerClick. Head over there if you want to follow the story—and satisfy your own curiosity about the dudes in question and the pics they took. And definitely check out the comments on the message board. My favorite one, from a person who purports to go to school with these dudes: “I just didnt know Nash has a BIG DICK! if you seen him in real life he doesnt look like he has a big one.” I think I wanna send this guy a copy of HUNG (okay, obvious plug)…

As I do wrap my head around the story, I ultimately think it’s hilarious. And sad, in a way. I mean, if straight adult guys can’t be gay-for-pay, if they can’t even jerk off on camera anymore without fear of losing their positions on their college teams, what does that mean for the future of good gay porn??? But I guess I can’t complain too much. This is all great fodder for the new non-fiction book I’ve been writing about the modern uses of young American male bodies in a post-Marky Mark world. I remember a time when only women had to deal with things like this—Vanessa Williams, anyone?

I’ve been saying it for years: Men are the new women, aren’t we?
