Active Duty: Mark Simpson, Details, & the 82nd Airborne
Details scribe Mark Simpson is a natural according to Fleshbot (link NSFW). The writer penned an article in the most recent issue of the magazine detailing producer Dink Flamingo and his video business with soldiers in the 82nd Airborne out of Fort Bragg, seven of whom were charged with appearing in Flamingo's gay porn videos. Two have recently pleaded guilty in exchange for plea deals and been sentenced and discharged from the armed forces.
While observing Flamingo film a scene with two of the paratroopers, Simpson was persuaded to join in on the action. The result ended up in Flamingo's film Call of Duty, which Fleshbot easily tracked down via a description on the film's box:
"'Call of Duty' is an interesting video in that it starts out as a video between Kane and his longtime military buddy Jack. During this shoot I allowed a journalist (who must remain anonymous) to sit in on the filming. I'm not su(r)e if it was my sly soothing ways or the pretty ass on Kane and the hot ass on Jack, but eventually our writer get written into the scene and all hell breaks loose."
While Fleshbot has a screen cap from the video in question (link NSFW), what they didn't have was a transcript of the article, which coincidentally I read last night. I've transcribed an excerpt in which the writer Simpson details how he was persuaded to live what he was researching. Doesn't sound like it took much arm-bending:
I asked him how he solicited the talent. "Well, mostly these days it's word of mouth. But in the good old days I would go up to them wherever I found them, including Wal-Mart, and say, 'Have you ever thought about modeling? You have a wonderful face,' and hand them my card." Would he target only men who were by themselves? "Nope. Often I go for the best-looking one in a group. He's usualy the leader, and if you get him, then the others come along too. Plus, you're flattering a guy by approaching him in front of his friends and telling him how good-looking he is." I meekly suggested that to many people it might seem like a very brave thing to do, soliciting a trained killer like that in broad supermarket light, often in front of the guy's buddies. "It's not brave," countered Dink. "You know what it's called, honey child?" he purred, suddenly slipping out of his low, businesslike voice into his Mae West-meets-Truman Capote drawl, cupping his budding man-breasts. "H'mmm? I'll tell you what it's called! It's called lack!...of!....sense!"
But Dink said he had never had an ugly reaction to his pick-up attempts. He is a very charming, persuasive man. Like the military, Dink knows that where guys are concerned the most persuasive thing of all is camaraderie, something I experienced firsthand when he invited me to observe him shoot a movie that night.
As I sat on the sofa watching Jason and Carl perform while I hid behind my notebook, Dink started suggesting, first in jokey fashion, then more seriously, that I join in. "Just for ten minutes or so. It would be great for your story."
I laughed it off— "Oh, I couldn't, I'm English, after all." But soon the guys too started egging me on.
"C'mon, man," Jason implored, like someone inviting you to arm wrestle or to a drinking competition. "Show us your uncut English cock!"
And almost before you could say "God save the queen!" I was stripping down to my foreskin.
Some might assume that I did this because I was unprofessionally aroused by the prospect of joining two naked paratroopers in bed. But regarding this occasion, they'd be wrong. I wasn't turned on. I was terrified. That's the nature of a dare, however: To not join in would have felt....unmanly.
We went through the gay-porn "foreplay" repertoire in almost every Rubik's Cube possibility. But it felt more like horseplay than gay sex. It occurred to me that Dink may have set me up, even coached the guys to entrap me.
"This is very brave of you Mark," he cooed at me as I climbed on the bed.
"It's not brave," I replied. "It's called lack!...of!...sense!"
Lack of sense? In-depth research? Immersing yourself in the story? Whatever you want to call it, I hope Simpson prepared himself for the fallout Dink Flamingo's powers of persuasion have wrought.
