It would almost be two years ago to the day, that Bel Ami made history: by filming the largest sex scene in gay porn: a 27-man circle jerk! 27 men, 27 cumshots. This one was indeed special and certainly one for the history books. This begins a two-part post in commemoration of this awesome event.
Taken from the 2010 May press release:
They began the shoot on one of the largest beaches in South Africa. At the time of the shoot it was completely deserted and made for an unforgettably beautiful locale. On hand were 4 photographers and five camera people. Then they finished at a villa they rented in Cape Town. For the circle jerk, there were two still photographers, three camera people and one documentary camera. They are presenting 160 photographs from this opening shoot on their website and towards the end of the month, around May 28 and 29th (2010), they will present the first part–the circle jerk itself as a video. Later, they will release all 27 cumshots…separately. They have an extensive documentary planned as well as behind the scenes material that will be presented on the website later on. It still remains one of the most popular sex scenes on BelAmiOnline and in all of gay film history.
Upon later discovery one of the photographers on hand was none other than Howard Roffman who was invited to take photographs of the boys on this historic occasion. The images that he took from this landmark shoot can be found in his book, Paradise Found.
