Long before the internet gave new meaning to the word ‘amateur,’ before homemade content was as easy as picking up an iPhone, were gay porn pioneers Palm Drive Video. No gauzy lens, no preened performers, this was the nitty gritty with non-professional guys getting down and very dirty. Legendary leatherman Jack Fritscher and Mark Hemry explored people’s fetish fantasies at a time when AIDS was decimating the community. They provided a safe-sex, sex-positive outlet for gay male desires.
The two devoted lovers (they met at Harvey Milk’s birthday party!) revolutionised niche sexual desire on screen in a way that was erotic, explicit and fully consensual. A passion project from directors Alex Clausen and Ryan A. White, R!U!V! Is just the kind of film we like to show at GAZE: sexy, sweet and unapologetically for the community.
