Making money from the plague
 by uroskin
It''s not only the western economy that is in a funk these days, please spare a thought for the creative, poor, but good-looking young men who, in their ephebic years, could always rely on making much more money by getting their clothes off and getting it on than working in a dead-end job, but now, thanks to the creative destructive forces of the internet, file sharing and sheer ease of satisfying customer demand for fresh faces, the economics of the porn industry have collapsed under the weight of over-supply of films, easy DIY marketing and zero distribution costs. A Finnish documentary, Poikien Bisnes (All Boys), seen on NZ''s Documentary Channel the other night, was a worthwhile attempt to trace the gay porn business in Central Europe, especially its move eastwards by producers searching for ever cheaper models. If you have been fed up with all that relentless Czech and Hungarian twink for the past decade, you are not alone! But the expose of the sheer exploitation by mostly foreign (German, American) porn producers - inevitably always sleazy old men - of any hairless, white, uncut, well-hung young man with a swimmer''s physique, is the film''s major strength. One of them proudly told us that his was the first full length bareback movie which heralded the condom-less trend in porn production, and which has led to a general disregard for the health and safety of his ''employees''. And then he had the hypocritical gall to tell us that his favourite model ''didn''t love him'' or ''only thought of himself'', so he had to get rid of the boy after his cherubic years were over, back to the homelessness of the Prague streets, while bemoaning the fact that his films were available all over the internet for free and he''s not able to make money anymore from trawling the Eastern European back alleys for fresh meat. Forgive me for not feeling sorry for him. But the health havoc he caused is unforgivable.

In a hyperconnected world where erotic media is never far out of reach, All Boys is required viewing. Heikkinen uses beautiful cinematography, historical research and devastatingly honest interviews to give us a rare look behind the scenes of the adult film production process. In particular, he follows the rise and fall of Aaron Hawke – whose short career serves as a cautionary tale on the fleeting nature of stardom. Behind every seductive image is a story, and All Boys is intent on showing us how the story ends. ~ Breakingglasspictures
