Bel Ami’s got angels: Kinky Angels, that is

Posted on May 7, 2014 by in Bel Ami, GDuroy's Kinky Angels, video clips |

To tell you this story, and it is a love story (well, in a way…some would disagree…but I know better). You can scoff all you want to; it’s what I get for being the perpetual romantic. And when you gaze lovingly at these sweet young ones, you can’t help but feel a swell in your heart of happiness. For me, it’s motherly, sisterly love. For others, well….that’s for all of you. And if I’m going to tell this story right, how I came to it, I best start at the beginning.

It would more than likely have begun when I first joined Bel Ami Online. My impetus for joining the site was two-fold: I was already a fan through Bel Ami’s numerous DVD films which I was still collecting with a voracious appetite, yet what sparked my curiosity was their update last May (my God, has it been almost a year already?) of the 27-man circle jerk scene. I was intrigued by a couple of the young ones that they had in the screen capture images from the gallery they presented along with the video scenes. I hadn’t a clue then who they were,just how amazingly cute they were. It wouldn’t be until much later that year when I would finally know their names: Kevin Warhol, Andre Boleyn, Jack Harrer, and Adam Archeluta, now better known as George Duroy’s Kinky Angels. Almost two years later, their stories can finally be told in a series of videos, documentaries, interviews and pictures. This series is a special gift to all the site’s members and fans who couldn’t seem to get enough of these charming, precocious and yet, sexy beyond belief young ones, or ’pupcakes’, as I’ve affectionately termed them as. All of them I’ve taken lovingly to my heart: the Charmer, the Jester, the Casanova and the Rebel (but this one has a cause).

From the series’ introduction, in George’s own words:

“In the winter of 2008/2009 within a period of two months we recruited 4 new twinks – Andre, Kevin, Adam and Jack. All four of them had some common features – they were charming but not exactly in good shape, sensual but (except for Adam) with precious little previous sexual experience, all of them with difficult family backgrounds, distrustful and often pigheaded. All of them are Czech village boys – and each of them has a very distinctive and intriguing personality. After some initial hesitation I decided to undertake an experiment – despite all odds I’d try to make them in first-class porn models and groom them as a group. I became a reformatory school principal, lion tamer, psychologist and surrogate father all at the same time. Todd and Luke went through the whole ordeal with me. Two years later, in the Kinky Angel series, you’ll be able to see some of results of this effort~GD”

Over the last week I decided that I would do my own take on these sweetly sexy scenes that have been presented in the series so far. The plan is to cover the series as much as I can. I plan to be fairly busy this summer to do so, but like everything, it will be, and has become, a labor of deep love and affection. I see this series as something very special indeed, for it’s calling us all back to why we’ve come to love Bel Ami in the first place: youthful, joyful, and playful sexual exploration. I took each issue presented so far and created mini-films of each with edited versions of the presented scenes. It was certainly fun and a challenge to find the right music for each scene. Like any of the mash-ups I’ve done so far, some scenes were easier to score than others but all in all, that was part of the fun. The idea had never really occurred to me to edit both mash-ups together to check for continuity within the music, preferring to let each one stand on its own in keeping with the series. However, taken both together they really do work to tell this epic love story. I believe in essence a love story is what this will end up being. At least from this romantic soul’s perspective.

Issue 1: Age of Innocence

I kept the subtitle because it worked very well to describe what this one was all about. To score this one, I sort of worked backwards, in order of when I saw the original scenes. I saw Todd and Andre’s scene first and I was struck by this moment of complete wonder and awe. This scene was directed by Lukas Ridgeston and it was beautifully done. Everything about this one was special: the location (South Africa), how it was shot (Todd and Andre’s silhouetted forms against the beach backdrop was both sensual and style-wise, classical romance). It was unexpected and it took my breath away. The song I chose to play over the clips I grabbed from this one, Forever, by one of my favorite bands when I was growing up, Siouxsie and the Banshees, reflected both a beautiful and somber mood: somber in lyrics only. The lyrics speak of the death of a relationship, perhaps in a romantic sense, but perhaps of a relationship to one’s self.I chose to use it within the context of the scene’s title The End of Innocence, a time of coming of age and sexual awakening, a passing from one phase of growing up (childhood) to entering the adult world. When one speaks of the loss of innocence there are those that use it in a sexual way….innocence=virginity, but that’s only partly true. It’s true meaning is the ending of one’s childhood. As children or young teenagers, we have a narrow concept of the world, and we know next to nothing of what awaits us out there. Our parents tell us the difference between right and wrong and then as we get older, we begin to make choices for ourselves. Coming of age stories are about just that. Tied very closely to that though is the theme of sexual awakening. Hormones are jumping, gnawing away inside you. You’re not sure what it is, but all you know is that you HAVE to have it, experience it. You know it’s part of the adult world, and you want it with every fiber of your being. You begin to harken to whispers that only you can hear. Your body craves something. You begin to find out your body can do amazing things, and it makes you feel sensations you’ve never felt before. You feel so wonderful that you wonder “if I feel this good when I’m alone, it must feel hundred times better when I’m with someone”. What better way to explore these strange new feelings then with your best friend who is probably wondering the same exact things you are. When you’re in your late teens/early twenties, you are teetering on the edge of two worlds: childhood and adulthood, and neither one want you. You’re too old to be a child any longer and not old enough to be an adult, yet you crave adult things (sex).It’s letting go of one stage and entering into the next which can be both exciting and frightening. It’s a metamorphosis that we can all relate to and it can be unsettling at times, but I think Andre came through it just fine.

The orgy was another one that was easy to find a song to ‘mate’ with it. Orgies for me by and large have always been easy for me to score.

They are just one big sex party so anything I put with it should have enough of a beat to it to go along with the scene. And if you wanted to shake your own booty to it, well, you could do that too. I saw in this one a mini-rave. A what, you ask? Well, you know: a rave…a touchy, feely drug-induced (usually, not always), dancey-trancey, Lurve-Fest. It’s all about ‘hooking up’..well, sometimes. And raves are typically an off-shoot of the whole Goth-Industrial music scene and they are by ‘invite’ in a lot of cases. So, yeah, I participated in quite a few of these when I first started to go into Philadelphia. I never used the drugs; the music was enough, but I certainly partook in all of its other aspects. So in my music collection I have a ton of music that would be heard at any given time at these special ‘parties’. The song This Heaven by Love and Rockets I thought completely fit the ‘festive’ rave mood I wanted to convey. This one was all about having a good time.

The scene with Kevin and Andre took the longest because I wasn’t sure how exactly I wanted to approach it. I think George was trying to tell a distinct story with these two (he was trying to tell one with Todd and Andre as well): the sweet innocence of first sexual experience, and all the wondrous curiosity that goes along with it. This scenario just reaches back into Bel Ami’s collective consciousness, back to the studio’s earlier output. You are presented with all these beautiful, gentle stories of the curious wonder of sexual exploration. Memories of all those scenes come floating back as you watch Kevin and Andre look at one another as they undress. Their eyes never leaving the other. Yeah, we’ve all been to this place that George has taken us countless times before, leading us along gently with his artist’s hand. Their desirous gazes turn to youthful passion. It’s a magical sight to see. It’s all this non-verbal communication that transpires between these two that makes this scene shine. They both say so much with a single gesture and look, and not one needs to utter a word. It’s highly erotic and just watching the looks the two of them give one another is both sensually beautiful and an exquisite turn-on. Seduction is one of the most important elements to a scene of erotica and without it, you might as well not have the sex at all. To give an example from Bel Ami’s past: there is a marvelous scene in More Lukas Stories between Ion Davidov and Lukas. Ion’s non-verbal playful seduction of Lukas was both incredibly funny (hey, this is Ion we’re talking about) and erotic.And Lukas’ responses to Ion’s playful looks and gestures are just as witty and charming to watch. It’s all about catching someone’s eye and keeping it. Just watching Kevin fall under Andre’s spell, just by eye contact alone was mesmerizing. Andre has gorgeous eyes. I thought so from the very first pictures that were released of him. He’s beautiful. How could anyone resist him? Kevin and Todd certainly could not. Just watching the way Kevin and Andre looked at one another, their eyes, their bodies, their aroused cocks, their desire for one another peaking; what was happening between them was magical. Before you know it, you’re being pulled into their erotic world and you haven’t a care in the least.

To score this scene, I was in a bit of a quandary. I wasn’t exactly sure what would work. I certainly had music ideas in mind. And seeing as this was a two part scene, I honestly didn’t know the right way to approach it. To help things along, I took both parts of the scene and edited them together as one piece. So now watching it I could study it a little more closely and decide which elements were important in telling their ‘story’ since this scene was going to be the one I was going to open with. Since this was in two parts I was going to edit both these separately then put in the music I chose last. For the first part of the scene, I wanted the music ‘language’ for this one to convey a sensual mood so I chose Sick Child by Siouxsie and the Banshees and for the second part of the scene I wanted something a bit more up tempo and something that I thought would mesh well with the orgy scene that was going to follow it, and I went with another Siouxsie and the Banshee song, Star-Crossed Lovers.

Issue 2: Kevin-the Baby Dragon Awakes
(And yes, Kevin I’ve nicknamed my sweet little Dragon-Boy)

This one was special because for me it took the longest to do, just in terms of finding the right music to ‘mate’ with it. This one was completed in a span of a few days, just in making the final music choices alone. And after days of sleepless ‘auditioning’ tracks and mining the Internet for music, I couldn’t have been more pleased with the results. One of the sheer pleasurable benefits of mining internet radio stations especially from other countries, you get to hear what other people are listening to and you can get ideas from that. I took one such idea and it just spring-boarded into finding so many others. I love the music for Bel Ami’s earlier films so I wanted to find music that would fit the B.K. Sun mold but will bring with it a different mood. Ever have a ‘Eureka’ moment? That’s what happened to me when I started to listen to all this music I had downloaded. Location and mood all had a role to play in making the final decision of the music I would use to score the opening scene between Kevin and Jean-Daniel Chagall: The Great Wall by Volker Barber.

This scene was just so sensually erotic on its own that I honestly don’t think I could have chose a better music piece to make this scene just pop. The setting for the scene, Kevin’s gentle, sweet and teasingly naughty seduction of J-D; it was such a beautiful, tender and romantic scene of lovemaking and with the music I wanted to interject a bit an exotic mood along with the setting/location. I wanted to do all that without having to resort to using B.K.’s music (not that it would have been a bad thing). I needed and wanted something new and different. Just listening to the song on its own a certain feeling prevails and you can’t help but to surrender to it, just as J-D can’t help but to surrender to Kevin. This whole series is calling us all back to why we have come to love Bel Ami in the first place: it’s very loving soul, its collective consciousness, is one of romantic eroticism, the playfulness of youth and innocent sexual exploration. With all these feelings brought to bear, is it any wonder than how long this world has ‘lived’? Where other studios are ‘selling off’ their souls…Bel Ami will never compromise on their principles. They may try to break the rules, push the envelope and boundaries or bring other creative ideas to the fore, but they will never forget what brought them here in the first place: romantic, erotic, passion. And for this scene, I wanted the music more than ever to help convey all those feelings. It is a scene of raw, stirring emotion and it’s a credit to the loving souls of its’ creators.

For the photo session part of the scene with Jim and Kevin, I brought in an old musical ‘friend’ who I don’t think really needs an introduction.

The sex scene was a tough one…I love a challenge ordinarily but…jumping Jesus! This one was tough. Nothing kind or gentle was going to do for this one! (You’ll find out soon enough what I mean) What would one use for a scene that displayed such raw sexual power? UGH! I didn’t have much in my collection sorry to say..unless….Marilyn Manson’s cover ofI Put A Spell On You was my original choice. It’s sensual in an off-center, creepy kind of a way, and it could’ve worked if I wasn’t too chicken shit to use it. I love the song. I love Manson’s music. Just not for this. Come on now, after how this one started, should I have really ended with such an antithesis? Didn’t think so. Then I thought The Sisters of Mercy song Temple of Love could work….but that quickly got the axe. What I needed was something to match the rawness of the scene, yet intercede it with a little earnest sensuality.I had Broken by Tapping the Vein, a local Philadelphia area band, waiting in the wings to use and I just didn’t find a scene to ‘mate’ with it…until now. So, taking all three music pieces together I think it worked better than I had planned.

3) Kevin and Jim: (He knows what he wants and knows how to get it): (edited; running time: 4:49) Broken, Tapping the Vein, taken from Butterfly EP.

So far, it’s been an amazing, erotic trip.

Thanks, George and Company. BA 4-Ever!
