It’s a great time to be gay in America, but you wouldn’t know it according to the gay porn coming out of Next Door Studios. Gorgeous hunk Quentin Gainz in this or any other reality would have no trouble finding a date. Unfortunately, as a gay man trapped in Next Door World without access to mobile phone apps for easy hook-ups, Quentin must resort to old-fashioned stalking behavior in order to get with Elye Black in “Gym Stalker”.
So desperate are the gays living next door, week after week they are depicted plotting/ scheming/inventing various cliched ways to trick/seduce/coerce the straight male neighbor/plumber/room mate/painter/gardener/real estate agent into having sex with them. Creepy country doctor Donte Thick seducing injured Zachary Country conjures up Stephen’s King’s Misery more than it does any thing sexy in “Pleasure and Pain.”
The scene summaries on the site’s landing page alone read like they were taken from gay porn VHS and DVD covers of the 80s and 90s. Take this gem from “Good Neighbors” for example: “As they spy on their neighbor, Jaydon Jensen, Markie More and roomie Zachary Country launch a plan for little get together… ” Really?!! These plot lines are old, tired, and the opposite of sexy yet they seem to repeat over and over.
Another common practice for gay men at Next Door World is to use breakups as an opportunity to comfort and then coax their emotionally vulnerable straight buddies into having sex with them. Do the words “opportunity knocking, pounce and making moves” ever come up in the same sentence to describe your friendships? They do at Next Door Studios: “Simon Evans is sad that his recent break up has left him alone, but for best buddy Princeton Price, this is opportunity knocking. Princeton has been waiting for Simon to get out of his relationship and into Princeton’s bed for some time, so when Simon confides in him, Princeton pounces, making his move on Simon.”
These depictions of gay men as a bunch of opportunistic and calculating tricksters whose singular goal is to engage in sexual relations with a straight boy are insulting and out of step with the times.
Call me overly-sensitive, but when someone as hot as Carter Woods is on his knees pleading with the likes of “straight” buddy Mathias for a pounding, what chance do any of the rest of us have if we buy into this nonsense? I am done with straight male worshipping, and I know I am not in the minority here.
It seems the executives at Next Door Studios miss the old days when gay men use to worship straight performers like Cody Cummings, James Huntsman and Trystan Bull… remember them? It’s an embarrassing reminder that we were idiots to pay good subscription dollars to watch these performers get sucked off and serviced. NDS is hoping we’ll fall for it again by using Axel Kane, Ricky Ridges and Matty Strong, all of whom are unwilling to reciprocate oral sex or touch their scene partner’s hard cock. The days of pure “straight worship” or “servicing”are behind us and Cody Cummings is an irrelevant footnote from an embarrassing chapter in our gay porn history. Yet the NDS hopes to bring back the old days by featuring their latest straight boy named Adonis Cole in a scene with an “in-your-face” title called “Worshiping Adonis Cole” The scene was a huge fail as previously covered. Sexual reciprocity is the new standard in porn with role reversals and flipping occurring more and more often in scenes at Noir Male, Lucas Entertainment, GayHoopla and Chaosmen.
But it gets worse for gay men as dysfunction abounds in the Next Door World. Statistically, there seems to he biggest concentration of gays from broken homes living next door than anywhere else in the world. So when the gays who live here aren’t trying to bed the straight boy, they’re shown preying on their step-fathers/ step-sons/ step-brothers/ in-laws/ uncles/ mom’s and sister’s boyfriends and fiancees as potential sex partners.
I am surprised that GLAAD, the organization that monitors the depiction of gays in the media, has not yet stepped in by now to challenge Next Door Studios on its continuing negative and outrageous portrayal of gay men week after week.
Out-dated and overused plot-lines in porn are quickly becoming a thing of the past. Subscribers are flocking to sites like GayHoopla and Guys In Sweatpants where handsome hunks and masculine athletes get down to flip fucking each other without shame, labels or pretense. Superstars Derek Jones and bodybuilder Collin Simpson are the epitome of the masculine straight “gym bros” stereotype. Yet the two studs practically built the young studio with their “no limits, no shame” approach to gay porn. The continue to attract more and more young subscribers to their site which contains no storylines or context. They guys get a brief interview before each scene and get right into fucking.
Next Door Studios features some undeniably hot men and beautiful videography in their productions. But their scenes lack substance and any relevance to the gay experience of viewers living in 2019. Did I mention that the roster of performers at Next Door Studios all look alarmingly “lily white?” Anyone unfortunate enough as to live next door to the out-of-touch and self-loathing gays at Next Door World should immediately abandon their domiciles and move as far away as possible.
